Was in Raleigh on business close to my destination and searched for restaurants. Up came Mellow Mushroom, so we went in and wow, what a nice, clean place. Great menu, especially the burger, well priced. Will most definitely return.

There's always a crowd at Mellow Mushroom and once you've been, you know why! The first bite is a real "YUM" moment that makes you want more. Every bite just keeps getting better. I just wish there were more locations.

We like going here on a sunny afternoon and eating on their patio. If you go on weekends or evenings, expect a wait because this is a very popular spot for coeds. Parking is available in their lot.

It gets very crowded, so I suggest you go as early as possible if you don't like crowds. We got a might meaty pizza and it was very good. They are a little pricey for a pizza, but it is so good!!

We've been to Mellow Mushroom several times since moving to the area, and we've gotten great food every time! Staff are friendly and helpful, are knowledgeable about food choices, and it's always clean. A great place for pizza and wings!

Well, Mellow Mushroom has a new menu. First of all, it's like a book without pictures, so it's much harder to find what you want and the lack of pictures doesn't allow for us with visual learning to see and help us make a decision....More

Description
Glenwood South's most Mellow dining destination. Enjoy a delicious pizza, salad, hoagie, or wings. Relax on our huge patio with a cold, craft beer.
Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers was founded in 1974 in Atlanta, Georgia. This franchise, operated under Home-Grown Industries of Georgia, Inc., is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. For 41 years, Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers has been serving up fresh, stone-baked pizzas to order in an eclectic, art-filled, and family-friendly environment. Each Mellow is locally owned and operated and provides a unique feel focused around great customer service and high-quality food. We opened this location on Glenwood South in 2002.
Mellow Mushroom’s menu showcases natural flavors and the freshest of ingredients in a creative menu assortment of pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones, appetizers and vegetarian and vegan options. Gluten free crust and a kids menu are also available. Mellow Mushroom is more than just awesome pizza and craft beer; it is a state of mind.
Our full service bar features a wide array of craft beers, an extensive wine list and fresh, handcrafted cocktails. Catch day-to-day sporting events on one of our many TVs and every sports channel imaginable. Enjoy a sunny day on our huge outdoor patio. The Mellow Mushroom is open seven days a week Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10:00p.m., and Friday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday. 11:30 a.m until 10:00 p.m.
