“Good pizza and great beer selection”
Review of Mellow Mushroom

Mellow Mushroom
Ranked #169 of 685 Restaurants in Wilmington
Price range: $0 - $10
Cuisines: Italian
Description: Mellow Mushroom has a fun and eclectic casual dining atmosphere with an ever growing menu. We are known for our gourmet pizzas but we have a lot more to offer like, fresh salads, hoagies, calzones and we are now serving burgers and veggie burgers! Our Wilmington-Oleander Drive location also offers a bunch of flat screen tv's both inside and out for all your game watching needs. Come enjoy our patio on a nice warm day or come inside and warm up with a hot slice when it's cold outside!

“Good pizza and great beer selection”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

They have good pizza, sandwiches and apps. They have one of the best beer selections in town. It is not cheap but they are consistent.

“Great Pizza Flavor.”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Dropped in for lunch last Saturday for lunch. We had not been to this Mellow Mushroom location before, but it always looks busy when we pass by, after all they a very close to UNCW. We had the special pie & as with every other location we have been to the flavor was excellent, but the crust of this one was kind of limp. Also, they do not have domestic draft pitchers, which is a draw back when eating pie.

“Been Before, But Not Again”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

If you like to lay a napkin over your pizza to soak up the grease, this is the place for you. The service was great, one item we ordered was delicious (cinnamon honey soft pretzels), and the rest was not good. The "magie mushroom soup" was tasty, but got its revenge on two of us later. The visible grease level on the pizza was the most disappointing part of the meal, espeically since we've enjoyed meals at this and other Mellow Mushrooms. I'm not willing to try this one again. One specialty pizza ordered for 2 of our party of 8 was over $19.

“Rerate.”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I hope this review is helpful. I was asked by TripAdvisor to rewrite my review since my original review of letting you know it was great was apparently not enough. Here goes:

The fresh smell of Americana-franchised Italy dances among your nostrils as you relieve yourselves from your vehicular transportation and make the staggering journey from the pavement of the parking lot, to the warm batches of marinara awaiting you inside. The cheese on the fluffy, plump pizzas pleasantly damper across the dough in heavy excess allowing the napkin, in which I occasionally use to blot pizza grease, to beckon at its connect.
You can choose from a decadent list of mouthwatering sauces and toppings, as which to address your personal pizza desires, which will leave you longing for more. Not only is the food redonkulously amazing, but the atmosphere is translucently designed to meet the needs of a welcomed family of 10-15, down to the strong, solo male catering to the need for beer on draft. Upon leaving, you will be parted with a solemn goodbye from your kindhearted waitress and hostess. Your walk from the restaurant establishment, in which you've just devoured the best pizza you've ever eaten, will be one of remembrance as you carry your leftovers in hand, and drive off into the sunset.

“Lunch worth seeking out”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

My daughter was the one who first tried a Mellow Mushroom pizza in Myrtle Beach. We have eaten at a few of these and have now made it our mission to seek them out. We love the non-traditional toppings. I usually stick to a vegetarian choice, but my daughter loves the bbq chicken pizza. They also have a great selection of appetizers, sandwiches and beers. It's great fun to watch the cooks tossing the dough. While the cost is a bit pricey, we think it is totally worth it.
