    Very good, but still a very thin crust pizza & very pricey. We ordered take out instead of dining in, which saved on the wait time & an even larger bill.

    So happy to have found this place while traveling. Great pizza! I had the House Special and was not disappointed. So great to feel like a normal person and go out for pizza. Great flavor and texture. Friendly environment. Good value.

    One of the best GF pizzas I've ever had! Mellow Mushroom offers plenty of GF toppings, as well as vegan cheese - a huge plus for me! The pizza is a bit pricy, but it is absolutely fabulous, and it's wonderful to go to a pizza place and find gluten free options other than salad! The service is great as well! I once received a slightly burnt pizza (which was still very edible.) The manager noticed, had the staff bake a new pizza, and gave me a few coupons for future visits. I was highly impressed. You'll pay a little more at Mellow Mushroom, but it's absolutely worth it.

    The pizza was delicious, and they were able to give us veggies for the humus appetizer. However, the gf crust they have is the common 12" thin frozen crust. Which is fine, except when you're charged over $20 for it! They told us that the charge would be the same as a regular medium pizza, but since the regular small we ordered (half of the family are celiacs- half are not) was $15, we assumed that a medium was just a bit more. Our family of 4 paid a bill of $80 for 3 pizzas (1 small, 2 medium) and a humus appetizer! In our opinion it is way over priced for the quality. If they made their own gf crust in-house, it might be worth it. But we can get the frozen crust at Stouts nearby or even Pizza Hut or Dominos. If you're looking for good in-house gf crust, try the Purple Garlic. It's much tastier, cheaper, and the owner goes out of his way to increase his gf menu.

    I so dispute the person who spoke negatively about pizza crust. Most places serve up frozen Udi's pizza crust. MM makes there's FRESH in a separate kitchen area and the GF meals are even delivered to guest separate of other guests meals. Staff is fully trained on GF (even the bartender) and the chef himself came out to answer a question on their soup. I have never scene such care to the GF guest! Cudos to MM!!!

    Our new GF crust is also Vegan, and we have stepped it up even further to avoid possibility of cross contamination. Using a custom Smart Flour gluten free/vegan crust now (dropped Still Riding) in order to offer a better pie! All pies are made from isolated ingredients and on a seperate make line/pizza pans. As the owner, please email me with any concerns and I will be glad to help. peternehen@gmail.com

    Great pizza as always. Although sometimes I wish the crust were a little thicker. There are no other options for GF other than pizza. I did ask if I could have GF plain pizza crust to go with their hummus dish that is GF. They had to check with the manager, and I was able to have GF pizza crust as flatbread with their hummus dip. They should have that as an option on the menu!

    This place is just OK. Their gluten free menu doesn't have a ton of options and unfortunately, the pizzas only come in a medium (which are very pricy). Service is definitely lacking in many areas, and the pizza we ordered came out burnt. My husband also asked for no mushrooms in his side salad, and it came with what seemed to be extra mushrooms. For 1 medium pizza, 2 side salads, a kids mac n cheese, and 3 drinks, the total was almost $50. Definitely not worth it. No thank you. Won't be back.

He brought try food out separate from the other food my table ordered. I never got sick from it either! It is certainly a good restaurant to eat at if you are gluten free!

    Delicious Pizza and no reaction. The problem is the time we were made to wait. We watched people who ordered long after us get their pizza eat and leave. After 45 minutes of waiting (we checked out receipt to see what time we ordered), we spoke to the manager who advised it takes longer because of the GF crust. My son had a regular pizza and it had not come out either. An hour after we ordered, I got my GF pizza and a few minutes later, my son got his regular pizza. We were refunded the price of the small regular pizza. I informed the manager that I had eaten at other Mellow Mushroom locations and not had this experience when he explained that it takes longer. Good food, and we will visit other MM locations, but not this one again. We are traveling and this set us back quite a bit.

    This was our first visit to this location. We are staying in Wrightsville and we had planned on going to Wilmington for Mellow Mushroom c there. But then I found a groupon for this location and was happy! Gluten free pizza for my 14 year old son less than 5 minutes away! It surprisingly wasn't crowded for 7pm on Friday and we were able to park and get seating within 5 minutes of driving up. I saw on their menu than they were serving "new" Smartflour Vegan crusts and it dawned on me that we had eaten at a location in Greensboro a few months back and the crust had been new too. We went ahead and ordered the gluten free/new vegan crust although we wished they still had the non - vegan option. This new crust is a bit thin and doesn't seem to rise at all whatsoever. Not airy, but more of a thick tortilla/crepe texture made of whole grains. They were definitely not trying to copy the good taste of a traditional wheat crust at all. But to get to the point of the poor review....my son are only 1 and a half pieces since he didn't really care for the texture and lack of flavor. Thank goodness. Because 3 hours later....we were in the hotel room with a very sick boy. We never experienced this after any of the other MM locations we've eaten at all over the south. I think perhaps in this beachy, touristy area the staff are all college students on summer break, the restaurant seemed to do a lot of take out, and possibly they don't take necessary precautions for Celiacs. The server seemed to group gluten-free in with diet choices such as vegans. Do not go here if you have Celiacs. Otherwise enjoy the easy access without wait.

    my children who aren't as sensitive to gluten as i am have no problems with this pizza. i usually end up with symptoms of cross-contamination which is understandable, considering they are throwing pizza dough in the air and the flour goes everywhere. it is overpriced and not that good. but it's pizza, and i don't have to make it myself.

    Service and pizza were great! No reactions. But, I was a little disappointed after seeing and smelling beautiful, bubbly large pizzas walking by and then having our server place a very small pie in front of myself, husband, and toddler. We judged our order based on looking around at other pies. We didn't realize that a gf dough meant a much smaller, thinner pizza would come our way. We didn't have time to order another so we split what we had and went on our way. Overall, great tasting but gf pie will only feed 1.5 people. Don't plan to share.
