Mellow Mushroom Charlotte – Uptown - The Story

The restaurant is a playful mix of the Jetsons, beatniks, and 1950s housewives. Located on the bottom of a 27-story apartment building, the exterior of the restaurant features smooth concrete, metal details, and a bold Mellow Mushroom sign. Guests can dine on the spacious outdoor patio next to throwback movie posters hanging in the windows. The interior seamlessly blends multiple styles into one cohesive, colorful space. The bar area has bold orange seating and backsplash tiles, sketch-like artwork of rockets, and circular pendant lights. Massive circular fixtures hang overhead, illuminating the colorful booths.

Customer Reviews

This place is a vibe. Our server was amazing, Brian took very good care of my family. Management took the time to make sure everything was okay with our table. William and Josh personally stopped by our table. The food was delicious and hot. The food came out super quickly and our server was super attentive we will be back! If you like good drinks, great food, relaxed aesthetics, a comfortable setting and a clean pizza place this should be your next target. They also have plenty of vegan option!

A nice causal pizza spot near Bearden Park in uptown. Our server was great, very attentive and the food was what you would expect from a pizza spot. The specialty pizzas give you the most bag for the buck, but you can also build your own. I gave it four stars because the wings were a little fatty and the pizza was half crust. Not my preference, but to each their own. Also, not sure why getting two small pizzas is cheaper than the one large pizza and you get more, but it let's you try more 😉

Great spot to grab a quick bite to eat for lunch during the day, or get an extended bite with friends on the weekend. Best pizza you can get without going to a local pizza maker!

Kate was our server. We were impressed from the moment we walked in. Outstanding service, delicious food, great vibe overall. Thank you for making our first night in NC memorable and positive!
