Mellow Mushroom Birmingham - The Story

Inspired by the band Widespread Panic, the restaurant features bold colors and music-inspired artwork. The exterior of the building has large windows and throwback neon signs. The spacious patio is shaded by a substantial awning, with charming string lights that hang overhead and lush planters that surround the space. Inside the restaurant, a large mural of a stage is illuminated by changing lights, creating a dramatic focal point. Playful artwork can be found throughout the dining room, including a large mushroom sculpture and a British phone booth — with the Mellow mascot Mel inside making a call. Bright seating options, a corner bar, and funky peace symbols round out the design.

Customer Reviews

Loved it. I forgot to say no onions on my pizza but I'm glad I got them- they were perfectly caramelized and the pizza was absolute perfection! Waitress was super nice, place was overall very clean. Highly recommend stopping by here for a pie!

Foid was great. Service was ok, but it was a young college student so maybe this is her first waitress job. Had the Merry Prankster pizza.

Loved the experience. The decor is funky fresh and the food is freaky fresh. The calzone I ordered came literally hanging off the sides of the plate, and was cooked to perfection. My vegan friends loved it too.

The best waitress ever and the food and drinks were also very good. I always keep coming back but the portobello mushroom with the salad and balsamic reduction should definitely be back on the menu.

Liked the "Great White" pizza very much. The service was excellent; the wait staff very personable. The small size was just right for my daughter and me, but we are not "huge" eaters. May not be my favorite pizza place, but will come again.
