One of the best pizzas in Hickory. Good service, good crust (most important), easy access to outside seating. We always enjoy our meal at Mellow Mushrom!

I walked in and the host was a pompous and extremely rude man. He made fun of the guy in front of me and his speech impediment. I was looking forward to trying the pizza, but after seeing how impolite the host was no thanks....More

The pizza is ok, but nothing special. Service is so, so, and we have had much better pizza elsewhere

Mellow Mushroom pizza has excellent crust, and they put lots of toppings on their pizzas. Although their pizzas are pricey, I am never disappointed in their quality. The veggie pizza is our favorite, and it comes loaded with whatever veggies you choose. The only drawback...More

I dont know that I would have a rehearsal dinner there. It is one big open space with a bar in the middle and can be pretty loud. I dont think they have an area that can be closed off for a private event
