The Greek Salad at Mellow Mushroom is very good. The full size salad is huge. The pizza is unique - and very filling. We split the Greek Salad and took home almost all of a medium pizza.

Thanks for the feedback! The regular size salad certainly is enough for two! We appreciate your review! More

Just like every other Mellow Mushroom ever since they started massively franchising. Doughy and overtopped pies (undercooked unless you remind them to do it "well done"), slow and uninterested service. Decent beer selection is a plus.

We do tend to pile on the toppings with our specialty pies, so maybe a more basic build your own pizza would better fit your style. Please contact us if there is anything we can do to improve your next visit to Mellow Mushroom. Thanks for the feedback! More

We met with my wife's cousin and his wife. Nice restaurant in downtown Blowing Rock. We had pizza which was OK but a little salty. The staff was very friendly and the service was good. May try this restaurant again in the future.

This pizza is the best in the area, ie. several counties. The ingredients are fresh, fresh, fresh and plentiful. The cheese is abundant and delicious. My spouse found the wings very good as well. There are many beers to select from and the glass is nicely sized. Julia was an attentive and cheerful server. Will definitely return and try some... More

We were in Boone for a Appalachian State football game. We stopped at the Mellow mushroom for a pepperoni pizza to go. It was absolutely delicious The place was slammed with people. We took the pizza and ate it outside on the street

Their house special is delicious! They put a lot of toppings so a medium is sufficient for 2 where at other pizza places we usually order a large. Service was quick and not a long wait on our food either.

It's the best place to eat at by far in blowing rock if ur big into pizza. Located uptown so it's in a decent spot as long as it's not crowded and you can move around some. During weekends wait times are an hour to two hours long so has its ups and downs but the pizza is amazing

We found a table outside to accommodate our yellow lab. The view from the patio of this place is great with the local rock work and help from a beautiful Carolina blue sky and peak leaf season. I ordered a half and half tea which was say too sweet for my taste.... We went with the Mega-Vegi pizza which is... More
