Mellow Mushroom Blowing Rock - The Story

Inspired by Blowing Rock’s past, the restaurant is located in a historical building built by the stonemasons who worked on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The building’s impressive exterior is highlighted by lush landscaping. A timber-frame pagoda covers the outdoor patio, and custom stained-glass features decorate the windows. The interior of the restaurant offers playful reminders that the building used to serve as a filling station, including license-plate light fixtures and a classic gas pump. Plush booths, vaulted ceilings, and large windows create a comfortable atmosphere. Stone floors and columns offer a cool contrast to the warm wood accents, rounding out the design.

Customer Reviews

We came in for lunch after hiking. We had the cloud 9 wings which were done perfectly! We also got the thai chili wings too. Then we shared a large house special pizza. Everything was good! Our server was friendly, helpful, and patient. Bathrooms were clean and location was great!

Went here in fall of 2021 and again tonight and it was really good. Had excellent service. Nice outdoor seating area. Had the buffalo chicken pizza and it was super excellent. Would recommend this for a nice evening dinner in Blowing Rock.

All of the food here is above par. The Meatball Trio came out looking like a dream. They are three meatballs with mozzarella cheese, covered in a delicious red sauce, and topped with breadcrumbs and cheese. Of course, Mellow Mushroom is best known for their pizza choices, but they also serve fresh salads, veggie subs and calzones! If you haven't stopped at a Mellow Mushroom before, try this quirky stop in Blowing Rock!

Hell yes is all you need to say when some one asks do you want mellow mushroom to eat!! This is my 3rd time at this location and I must say it delivered ever single time!! Staff is a younger crowd but they are very helpful and knowledgeable. Alot of people like thin crust for their pie but bear in mind it's brick oven cooked so I always recommend normal crust but hey that's just me. It is kind of pricey for a personal pizza so I wouldn't suggest for take out but for dinning in it's definitely worth the atmosphere!

Ate light tonight. Had the half order wings work Thai chili, meatball trio and spinach artichoke dip. Split it between two of us. All of it had really good flavor and pairs well. The wings are twice baked and the Thai chili tasted as expected. Not spicy. The meatball trio sauce was very tasty. The meatballs themselves were not very flavorful. The artichoke dip was very cheesy and the garlic bread with it paired so well. Very yummy. Just enough to allow us not to be too full and still drink a few beers.
