“Very Good”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Not for everyone, it is laid back and casual. Love the selection of beers. College kids host for the most part, try to get an older person, they actually know the beer selection and menu.

“Best pizza”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Best pizza in town!
Often a wait for dinner but well worth it.
Can order custom pizza or part different toppings.

“Holy Overrated!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

After hearing so much about this restaurant, I was expecting much better. What we got was a pizza with a tasteless crust and, overall, lacking flavor.
My son got a dessert, not too sure if it was a mousse, but it was really bad, like your 12 year old daughter made it bad.
Service and atmosphere were fine.

“THE best!!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Were in town visiting family and they took us here. Never heard of Mellow Mushroom before. There was SO much on the menu to choose from, we wanted to try it all. The waiter mentioned that we could order a pizza and get 1/2 of it one kind and the other 1/2 something else. That sold us!! Three out of our party ordered the half and half pizzas, all different kinds. It was absolutely delicious!! We all ate and had enough to take home. That night, we combined all of the leftovers and put on a pizza stone, back in the oven, to heat up. The leftovers were just as good!! I really wish there was one in the Outer Banks of NC or Hampton Roads area of Virginia, as we are centered between the two!! This most definitely will be a stop every time we are in Raleigh!!
