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

Amber was amazing!!!! Funny, great to be around and awesome service. She made sure that we were okay and recommended us food because it was our first time here. I would most definitely come back and eat here again thanks to her!!!!

The staff here is always very nice and accommodating, and often go above and beyond with their service! I have tried a few different vegan pizza combinations so far, and have enjoyed most of them. Just a few things to note: 1. If you are vegan and are getting a half-and-half pizza with someone who is not, be prepared to have their melted cheese on your side of the pizza. 2. The pretzel bites are not pretzel-like at all, and honestly seem like a regular bread dough.

So nice, ya gotta go twice (in the same week). Love their vibe, great customer service, nice size outdoor dining space. The gluten-free crust is actually pretty good, and the vegetarian options are fabulous. A bit pricey, but totally worth it. You can also order a pizza and do different toppings/types on each half - great for those who can't decide like me. Dog friendly patio also a huge plus.

AMAZING food! I am gluten free and it can be hard to find really good pizza, well here it is! My family also love to get the pretzel bites every time they came here. There is just a great family friendly atmosphere with amazing food and an amazing wait staff.
