My brother and I had to wail a long while before we were seated but it went by so quickly as we admired the scenery and listened to conversation of the amazing experiences others had that day. Plan on getting up earlier the next day!

Because of our small dining area, the wait can get lengthy over busy holiday weekends. We appreciate your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Blowing Rock! Thanks for the terrific feedback! More

Food was excellent so the wait to be seated was long. Try to get there early. Was surprised to find out that they don't have any ricotta cheese after I ordered a calzone. It was still pretty good. Great atmosphere and great wait staff.

Ladies hiking club had a late lunch here after a day hike. Love this building & Blowing Rock. Great place to spend the afternoon. The steak & cheese hoagie was very good. The thin crust could be a little thinner more cracker like but I love the variety of toppings.

We love the idea of a ladies hiking group and are pumped you guys chose us for your post hiking meal! Because all of our pizzas are hand tossed, the crust is tough to get as thin as some like. Thanks for the feedback and we hope to see you guys again soon! More

Great pizza. Ordered gluten free pizza as well, which was very good. Make it away from allergens. Quite tasty.

Great place for a cold day. The place was really well decorated - the food came quickly and tasted wonderful- I had the mushroom soup and recommend it. Service was good and price is also reasonable.

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.

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.
