Enjoyed some nice apps for lunch. They also have some good lunch specials with salad, pizza and drinks. They have a full bar service. The meatballs were a little over cooked for my liking but the salad was great. Glad to see oven baked wings.

This is the 2nd location I had the opportunity to visit and introduced my husband to it. Excellent food and service! Can't wait until I'm in the area of any of your locations again! Come to WV!!

Best and tastiest pizza my son and I have had in quite some time. Right next to Durham bulls ballpark. Interesting decor.

It wasn't too busy but quite a few people here and there on the inside, so we decided to sit outside. But the Mosquitos were tearing me up so the waiter was nice enough to move us inside! Shout out to Ryan!!! Our pizza was good, fresh and hot as always! The seasonal summer pineapple drink was good also!

Solid 5 stars here for sure. To be honest I am generally not a big fan of chain restaurants and tend to explore more unique locations. This particular venue is definitely outstanding and here is why: There were 11 of us who just strolled in around lunch time on a beautiful Thursday afternoon. They pulled tables together, smiled and sat us within 3 minutes. Drink orders were quickly taken and quickly delivered. Lunch orders were taken, I ordered the House Special pizza and requested no onions and to add jalapenos, they said no problem. Everyone's order came out quickly and within 3 minutes of each other, they were all correct including my no onions add jalapenos pizza. Drinks were continuously topped off and we were asked if we needed anything and that if everything was okay. Everyone loved their food, my was piled high with goodies and more than I could eat! (They provided a to-go box for those needing them). They are located right next to the Durham Bulls ball field and pardon the pun but they "Hit it out of the park". Please give them a try! 13/10 for sure

I've been to my fair share of Mellow Mushrooms and finally decided to try their pizza here (I'm normally a calzone kinda gal) and holy cow I wish I would have tried their pizza sooner. It was top tier and might be my go-to there from now on. I highly recommend this location. I do wish they had more beer on their selection list but that's more personal preference and not a deal breaker.

Whenever we're either passing through downtown Durham or want a quick good bite Mellow mushroom one of our few "go to" spots. Between food and drinks it can be slightly pricey. However the service is always quick and friendly. And the drinks are cold and the food is always fresh, hot, and delicious. So if you're ever just passing through or visiting downtown Durham. This is a great spot to drop by to.

This Mellow location is located in the historic old Lucky Strike complex and beside the Durham Bulls Baseball field. This Mellow has 2 outside seating areas ( use the lower patio outside seating - way nicer & quieter). Usual Mellow menu with great service. Allow 10 - 15 extra minutes to walk around this beautifully restored complex of buildings. If an event is happening at the complex tell the parking staff you are eating at Mellow so your parking is then free.

Decided to head to lunch with my daughters and wound up enjoying some wings, pretzel bites, and spinach & artichoke dip. This is hands down some of the best dip of its kind that I’ve had. The little bread that it comes with is all just a great combination. Though not a fan of the beer cheese, the pretzels were actually good with the dip as well. Now let’s talk about those wings 😋 oh my goodness!!!! I don’t usually clean the bone when I eat chicken EVER but these wings were so amazing and I absolutely recommend…. Lastly the pizza I got the cheese 4 slice pizza and I’m not a fan to say the least. I still recommend this place clearly 🙃

Great food. Their pizza dough is the best. Good beer selection. The waitstaff are friendly and quick. The thin crust is just as good as the regular.
