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.

“Looking for a Great Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

This is one of the best pizzas I have found. A little thicker crust, and is one of the closest I have found to our old standard, but long-departed Brother's pizza on Hillsborough Street.

“Loved it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

We had no trouble being seated at the dinner hour, which is a bit unusual for a Mellow Mushroom. It was crowded, but every Mellow Mushroom I have been to has been due to the quality of the food. The restaurant was clean and service was timely. The pizza arrived quickly and was hot. One of the pulls of Mellow Mushroom is that they serve unusual pizza toppings and have gluten free options, so the vegetarian tweens I took there were thrilled. I found the environment family friendly. I do think it is a bit overpriced but the pizza was outstanding.

“Very crowded, average pies”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

Me, my wife and some friends waited over an hour to get in and when we finally did, we were sat in the back corner that wasn't decorated very much. We were on metal chairs and a concrete floor that was sealed but not painted. The pizza was good, but nothing spectacular. We thought it was a little overpriced for what we got too.

“Disappointed With This Pizza”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012

I was passing by this place and saw a crowd. Crowds usually mean good food, but not in this case. Being from NYC, I am very critical of pizza.
Even if you "make your own" pizza, it comes with parmesan cheese, something I do not understand. After waiting for about 20 minutes, the pizza came and was not hot. The toppings seemed to have been thrown on at the end, after the pie was baked.The cheese easily separated from the dough. This was a really bad pizza.
I would not eat here again. There must be better pizza places in Raleigh.
