Mellow Mushroom Newport News - The Story

Inspired by the Newport News shipyard and local history, the restaurant features tributes to historic figures and monuments from around the area. The exterior of the building is made from Hokie stone, brick, and concrete block with a neutral color palette and large windows. Inside, guests are greeted by bold pops of red and orange. The east wall features a rendering of the SS America (renamed the SS Newport News), while the west wall includes notable local icons like Christopher Newport. An image of Ella Fitzgerald gives a spirited, sophisticated feel the space. The large, oval bar is reminiscent of a submarine sail. Not just impressive with its ample seating, the bar also features pendant lights made from World War II ship air horns, and underneath the cargo holds are filled with beer growlers.

Customer Reviews

Fast and friendly service! The theme of the restaurant and decor was a sight to see. Super cool submarine theme. I just wish we could have experienced one of the cool booths I took a picture of. We sat at a regular booth which was fine. Pizza was delicious, wings cooked and seasoned perfectly. Server was very helpful with suggestions and was on top of her drink game.

The food was good. Only received 4 stars because the meatballs were cold. Yes I could of sent them back, but I didn't want them reheated and become tough. The place was nice inside, just wasn't what I expected. The Nautical theme threw me off. The booths were extra large which was nice. The pizza was really good.

I've been to a Mellow Mushroom in SC awhile back, but my family wanted to try the restaurant. My whole family absolutely loved the pizza they ordered. We also ordered the pretzel bites with cheese sauce and it was delicious! The service was great and the atmosphere was psychedelic! I highly recommend visiting this restaurant.

4.4⭐️ This pizza is pricey but very good and worth it. I had only tried mellow mushroom once, someone at work got it. I said I’d go back one day. I made an account on their website and got free pretzel bites! So I ordered myself a small great white pizza to go with the pretzel bites. Everything was so good! The Parmesan cheese on the pretzel bites makes them that much better. And the pizza just tastes so fresh, that’s the only way I can explain it. I did get a sandwich from here, the California Club, it was good! Definitely Small, but good. Highly recommend for a fun dinner!

I was so happy to see a place that had a completely separate vegan menu, making ordering very easy! The vegan pizza I got and the regular one my friend got were both good. My only qualm with my pizza is that I prefer smaller chunk sizes (thinner pineapple) for the toppings and Follow Your Heart cheese has a slight stickiness to it when melted. The crust was so good! The small pizza is enough for two people, especially if getting an appetizer. Our server was super friendly and checked on us just the right amount throughout our meal. Everything was clean, including the bathroom.
