Have eaten there several times. Always impressed with their pizza options as our group is usually a mix of meat eaters and vegetarians so its great when a business has plenty of options for both. Service is also excellent

Mellow Mushroom pizza is consistently good. It's definitely not the best in Raleigh, and I'm okay with that. Sometimes we just want it! We tried curbside pickup tonight and were so, so, so disappointed with the service, especially after trying 2 of our favorite Raleigh pizza pickups over the last few weeks. We understand these are trying times and businesses are having to get creative, but the service was ridiculously slow. Our order was scheduled to be picked up at 7:12, and it was after 7:45 before our order was ready. We totally understand things being different/more difficult now, but seven weeks into restaurants only being open for take out, one would hope Mellow Mushroom could give closer-to-accurate order times. If we ordered and it said our pizza would be ready in an hour, we would have been fine waiting at home. No one should have to wait for more than 30 minutes after their pickup time for pizza, though. 20 minutes after pickup time, I called to get an update (my card had already been charged), and was told they would "look into it." Other customers were getting out of their cars to ask for order updates questions were really just shrugged off. We're not expecting things to be perfect right now, but a company as large as Mellow Mushroom can do better. We definitely will head to more efficient, local pizza places over Mellow Mushroom until the stay-at-home order is lifted.

Wonderful pizza! Absolutely delicious. Staff is nice, too! Only constructive criticism I have to give is, the pizza needs to be cut a little better. Not everyone has a pizza cutter on hand. We tell everyone know, how good this place is and we look forward to going back.

The pizza is decent. I'm not a big fan of all the unique varieties of pies. I'm relatively straightforward when it comes to my pizza consumption. The prices are a bit high for what you get. The sandwiches are very small and just do not impress me. The service is O.K. And I doubt I will order again until the Covid Apocalypse is over. These guys just can't seem to get it together pertaining to their take-out strategy. I waited forever last week for someone to ask me my name. Then 20 minutes later out walks some guy who looks like he burned one too many at his last Phish concert, and asks me my name again. Damn, they forgot I was here. Pizza cold. Oh well, it's tough on everyone I guess.

The pizza was great! However, the service was exceptional. Our waitress, Erin, made recommendations and helped us create the pizza that was exactly what we wanted. We will visit every time we are in the Raleigh area!

Overall: I've been to plenty of mellow mushrooms including this one before. The food is consistent and they have interesting and unique pizza options. It's not my favorite pizza place but it gets the job done when you want a sit-down pizza place.

Good beer selection. Nice outside seating area. We got the parmesan pretzels, which were recommended, and they very bland and tasteless. We then asked for the cheese dip that goes with them and didn't really help it taste better.

Great food, hummus plate is best around. Pizza is always delicious and the service is always top notch. Only complaint are the prices, way over priced for a pizza restaurant.

The service here is always wonderful, staff is very knowledgeable about the menu and are always friendly! Wait time isn’t usually bad and there is a great patio for warm sunny days and there’s a indoor/outdoor patio! Always come here for pizza downtown!

I've lived here coming on 3 years now. I'm not a huge fan of your typical pizza chain restaurants i.e. papa johns, dominoes, Pizza Hut. I look for a more homegrown style pizza. And honestly I think down here in NC the "New York" style pizza is just so over played and really not all that good. But anyways back to my point. Here at mellow mushroom on peace st. I've always had a good experience. Yes I've had to wait, yes I've got to sit immediately. It's never the same but then again when I go is never at the same time so I don't expect anything less. My wife and I love their pizza. We adore chicken wings and it just happens they have pretty good ones as well. They always seem to have a decent drink special going on. They do have quite a variety of beverages to include the "virgin" style drinks if you don't quite like alcohol. I've only had one problem there and it was last time I went about a week ago. We had to wait for a table no big deal, so we sat at the bar and ordered a round of drinks. Well we wanted Bloody Mary's. So we order and the bartender is super nice. But then she hands us these drinks, let me tell you it was just a mix and some gin, no garnishes. And I'm thinking to myself hmm we usually get really good ones here to include the garnishes. Needless to say we took the drinks to a table and ate our food and left. I understand it gets busy but I feel like a little more attention to detail or even to care a little more when it came to drinks would be awesome. Overall I will continue to go and continue to recommend.

Absolutely A#1! The service was as good as it gets and shame on me but I've forgotten the service person's name. Nevertheless she was terrific. Without question the most intriguing and delicious chicken salad sandwich I've ever had. Bottom line, this will become a regular place for me.

Good, fun spot to enjoy a variety of pizza creations. Great specialty pizzas. When the weather is warm, the outside dining area is a hot spot for food & drinks.

We had a big order for carry out. The service was spectacular. The food was wonderful. But check your order before you leave as 2 of our items were not prepared according to the order, disappointed.

Burger too fatty. Greek salad had very little feta. Pretzel bites undercooked doughy in middle. Very disappointing, had heard great things. :(

Not only have I been coming here for over 15 years, from trips to visit colleges, to being IN college, living here after college AND moving away, visiting after college and all. The food is delicious and the service is always spot on! Thank you I want to take a minute to acknowledge the crew working tonight! I left my card around 530, realized it at 11:28p, 2 minutes to close. I was sure I had no chance, though I was a block away, we called they said come on and I got my card back. Thank you MM Saturday 08feb team, y'all went above and beyond and that's why people appreciate the business

We had 3 different pizzas and all were excellent. The crust was so tasty! Very friendly staff.

Love Mellow Mushroom, my wife has Celiac and has never had an issue with contamination of her food here as they really take gluten free as a serious concern. The pizza is amazing and this trip was no different than the normal, I had the Mighty Meaty and the wife had a gluten free cheese and we were both completely happy with our selection. The beer selection is always great and the servers are friendly and prompt. The one negative would be the parking as it is pretty tight but it is still pretty good for the area so can't really complain too much.

I love their pizza. Be warned unless you're sitting outside it's VERY loud when they're busy which is every night. But the pizza keeps me coming back!

Love this place! Great food! Greatest service! Super accommodating! Love it!

We picked the worst day to be downtown! Christmas fun run so the restaurant was very busy. But the staff did a great job cleaning tables and getting people seated. The waitress was nice and helpful. We had a member of the family with food allergies so she was very careful with our order. The food took some time due to the large groups, but we knew it. Even as busy as they where, the food quality didn't suffer. Everything was normal. Still the best pizza in Raleigh.

Lovely ambiance! Super nice staff!! It was my first experience and I loved it!

Great food, great staff, ok beer selection. This place is a little more chill than the bars around it, so if you're looking for something to do downtown that isn't necessarily a bar, but still has good food and a great atmosphere, this is your place! Beer selection is ok, I do wish they had more options on tap.

Thank you very much Mellow Mushroom (Peace St) for your gift for our Christmas party for our special needs students. You gave to our low income special needs students love and kindness. They enjoyed the pizza even some teachers! Not only the pizza was good but also the people were amazing!! God bless you all on the behalf of all the students.

The Mellow Mushroom has been one of my family's favorite places to get pizza for years. Their pizzas are delicious! The greek salad is very generous and tasty as well. The crust on the pizza is soft and fluffy and I always end up eating it where as with other places where it's super crispy, I dont. The staff there is great too. Our waiter was so nice and very attentive! Our drink glasses never went empty and he checked back often to see if we needed anything.

BOMB.COM. Pizza is amazing. And the servers Kirstie and Cassie are so kind and sweet! Coming from out of town, this was a good choice :)

Hamazing! I'm not sure why I haven't tried this chain out before in my own city but also glad I gave it my first go at this location... not only was the decor and design more groovier then the Houston location but the service and food we had that morning was pretty awesome and the reviews from Yelp backed it up. If you check in using Yelp you can score some pretzel bites. I'm not a fan of pretzel bits but I would get these again especially if they're on the house. I'm not a fan of baked wings (only fried in my book) so I skipped over that and went to bruschetta I think with balsamic vinegar. It was pretty good. The real star of lunch was the half and half pie and ... the only half of the pie that I can remember was the Holy Shitake Pie...Holy $hit was it awesome. The other half was I believe was cheese....not bad at all either. Because of my experience here I would definitely not be opposed of trying them out in the Houston area where I reside.

Love the taste of the pizza but the open kitchen revealed some disturbing actions. One chef dropped a towel on the floor then picked up the same towel and began cleaning with it. Another chef used a broom from the floor to clean the top of the oven then to-go pizzas were placed back on top of the oven. Servers were counting/touching money and rolling silverware at the same time. One server was walking down the expo line eating and attempted to toss his napkin in the trash but instead it landed in the expo window beside pizza waiting to be served. My boyfriend and I came in for dinner at 8:15 on Saturday and the restaurant didn’t close until 11 but servers and chefs were closing down stations and audibly complaining about being ready to leave. Really disappointing that the taste of the food is 5 stars but cleanliness and service is about 2.

Awesome pizza, great topping selection, and super service. My husband cannot have gluten and he says Mellow Mushroom has THE BEST GF pizza dough he's ever had!
