My family of 4 very much enjoyed the fun atmosphere and great food. Service was attentive and friendly even when the 8 year old spilled her drink. Pizza was excellent, my son devoured the macaroni and cheese and wanted more. I got to try a local pumpkin ale which was excellent. All in all a great easy dinner for the... More

We went here as recommended by fellow vacationers, but we sat for 10 minutes before anyone came to our table and the restaurant was NOT busy. After placing order, our waiter rarely came to check on us, we had to go ask for drink refills. We would not return!

Went here for lunch while visiting Boone and the whole experience was just ok. Coming from NY, we're picky with our pizza and though they have a good selection we felt that theirs was ok. Server was not very attentive, we had to ask for napkins and plates which was supposed to be pretty standard. Granted it was a little... More

This place is awesome, very cool atmosphere, tons of local and domestic beer and of course tasty pizza. Tons of different options to enjoy and fairly quick for how busy they always are.

Very good pizza. Not your typical run of the mill pie. Good service. However. Just as a warning, it is twice as expensive as most pizza places.

We attended a concert at the Schaefer Center on the campus of Appalachian State on a Saturday night. It was shortly after 11:00 (closing time) when we got to Mellow Mushroom. We asked if they would still serve us, and they said of course! There was only one other table occupied. They seated us, asked if we wanted to start... More
