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. They also have removed items from the menu. I'm fairly sure they had two white... More

$26 for a large supreme pizza. Size is same as any other place. But toppings are a bit heavier. Dough is good. Tastes like honey has been added. Building is old but clean. Service is very slow. This is good pizza. But I won't come often because there are other good places and even better places for less $$$$$. Best... More

Fabulous Calzone. Large enough to serve two. Light breading and fresh filling! Friendly and open atmosphere.

The pizza is good, but the atmosphere isn't very cozy, and the service is inconsistent. It's a fun place, though.

Busy restaurant. I usually try to get there early. They have indoor and outdoor seating and a heated cover in the winter. The salads are delicious, the pizza is good but I prefer the calzone. It is the best in town. They have a variety of menu options - appetizers, salads, speciality pizzas, make your own pizzas, calzones, sandwiches, burgers,... More

We ordered a cheese pizza with extra cheese, green peppers, and thin crust. Way too much cheese and I'm a cheese lover. Skimped on the green peppers. Taste was okay, I've had better and worse.

We passed by Mellow Mushroom on the way to Bugfest and I'm so glad we did. Great food. Friendly service. Putting mushrooms, spinach, feta and jalapeños is inspired. Adding sausage, as the menu suggests, is awesome. Some of the best pizza I've EVER had. Ever! Thumbs way up.

Was taken here by a local friend and the pizza did not disappoint. I can safely say this was one of the best pizza experiences I have ever had. Had to wait for a table to become available but it was definitely worth it. Will be recommending this place to friends and will definitely want to revisit the next time... More

Visited here while staying in Raleigh for the night. We arrived about 45 before closing. Everyone here was so friendly. The food was hot and fresh, and everything arrived quick! Our waiter was attentive and made sure we had what we needed. Will definitely visit here again when I'm in the area!

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.
