Mellow Mushroom Cary - The Story

The restaurant’s theme is a whimsical play on famous art pieces mixed with a dash of Dr. Seuss. The exterior of the brick building has stately white pillars and two patios — one covered and one uncovered. Large windows surround the dining area, providing lots of natural light. The interior of the restaurant features eclectic artwork on the walls and ceiling, including playful takes on Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Jean Honoré Fragonard’s The Stolen Kiss. The plush booths feature quilt-like patterns, adding even more vibrant color. Above the bar, the bright yellow ceiling is accented with flowered sculptures to round out the artistic theme.

Customer Reviews

The pizza is great but the service can be iffy. The front door staff seemed to be a bit out of it and seemed like the whole place was run by kids. Our waiter was great though. Probably the type of place to grab and go instead of dine in.

Great food. We enjoyed our family dinner. Waitress was keep forgetting things that made us wait a long time.

Not only was the flour-based pizza really good, the gluten free and dairy free option was what drew us in, and it was perfect.. A member of our family has a dairy, egg, and wheat allergy - allergies that typically make most restaurants off limits or at a minimum, very limited choices. Coming from a smaller city that didn't offer restaurants like the Mellow Mushroom, we are grateful and appreciative for the folks who started the restaurant. Thank you! We will definitely be retired customers!

Food and server were both outstanding. Very slow service, but that's probably attributable to it being a Friday night, the place was jam packed, and the food is always outstanding. And our server was very attentive and also checked with us to see if we needed anything and to update us on where our order was in the queue.

Best pizza we have ever had! We got the house specialty, and my toddler got a cheese bread pizza. Our leftovers didn't last the evening! Good drinks too! We will definitely be back!
