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 went to 'Art in the Park' at Blowing Rock and chose to get lunch at Mellow Mushroom even if the wait was long. The hostess estimated a wait of 30 minutes but about 10 minutes later we received a text that our table was ready. Yeah!! We sat on the patio and had 'Great White Pizza' and 'House Salad'. The pizza's toppings included five cheeses. I was afraid that I would miss meat but didn't in the least because the cheese pizza was DELICIOUS! It was probably the best pizza I've ever eaten. The service and food was great! I highly recommend this Mellow Mushroom.

My trip to Mellow Mushroom was nothing less than 'Far Out!' 😎🍕🌈 The pizza and pretzel bites with Pabst Blue Ribbon beer cheese were simply divine 🤤🍻🧀 I couldn't have asked for a better vibe; trippy, hippy, and all-around groovy 😜🌺 I genuinely enjoyed my first visit to this iconic restaurant chain, and I already can't wait for the next one! 🍴❤️

Comfort food restaurant with plenty of vegan options hidden away by making some substitutions. We tried the pretzel bites, tempeh hoagie (half), and a customized pizza. While the pretzel bites were delicious, it wasn't pretzel dough, more like pizza dough bites coated in cornmeal. The half hoagie was still huge and stuffed so I would say plenty of food for most. The pizza was good, a fairly thick and heavy cornmeal crust with generous toppings. Excellent service

$51 for a large House Special and a small cheese. Very pricey but very tasty. I don't think this location cooked the crust long enough as it was soggy from the toppings and hard to pick up. But it was still delicious.

Busy busy busy but they do a fantastic job of getting folks seated and n food out to tables. A favorite in BR, we visit almost every time we are in town. Fun funky vibe, nice options for pizza, gluten free crust is what you’ll expect and toppings make it all good!! Servers are pros and get the job done with ease and consistency. Well-run establishment.
