“Great Pizza... Horrible Service”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Mellow Mushroom has great food and a great selection of beers. If the service was only the same it would be an A+ place. The Mighty Meaty Pizza is amazing. Every time we go in, we try and sit at the bar. All the girl bartenders are always on cloud 9 and never attentive to the customers around the bar. We love to sit at the bar and talk to the bartenders about the different beers and the Beer Club items. Every female bartender is clueless when it comes to different beers and haven't explain anyone of them to you. A bartender needs to be knowledgeable about the product, because that is the only way you are going to upsale a customer.

All in all it is a great place to eat and a great atmosphere. Patio seating is amazing. Just don't expect great service!

“More hype than value”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

Too many fancy yuppy pizza. Takes too long for pizza to get to you. And sandwichs come with no sides, and only side is a bag of potato chips, which cost extra. Can get better pizza at at least 64 other places.

“Great Time, Everytime!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

I have eaten at the Mellow Mushroom for quite some time now, so when I found out that Greenville was getting one, I was so excited. I have since become a regular, and find myself sitting at the bar nearly every time. They always have great music playing, and plenty of good tv to watch. While the restaurant itself lacks ambiance, the bar and patio more than make up for it. The bartends they have are some of the friendliest I have ever met, and their service is top notch. I have had one pizza that was made incorrectly, and the manager came out and apologized immediately, even letting us eat the pizza that they messed up, while they made me a fresh one, the right way. Pizza, Service, and definitely the drinks, make this Mellow Mushroom a must visit.

“Good pizza in Greenville”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Very new and a large place. They have both inddor and outdoor seating. We had very good service and the food at any Mellow Mushroom is always very good. We went after a football game at ECU so the kitchen was a bit slow, but that is the expectatation when you have 50k fans in town all trying to find a place to eat.

“Welcome to Greenville!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

How wonderful to find one of our favorite restaurants has been located in eastern North Carolina. Besides having a fabulous assortment of beers, the sandwiches and pizzas at Mellow Mushroom can't be beat. The decor and many items focus on our eastern locale, and the food is Mellow Mushroom at its best. Thanks for coming to our area!
