    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 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.

    Oh my goodness it's been a while since I had pizza this good! Delicious, and the gluten free version doesn't cost more. Plus the staff was so nice! If you're GF and in wrightsville, stop here to eat! You won't regret it :)

    Staff is very knowledgeable & diligent about GF. Pizza is good, not great. Probably eat here once a month, never had a problem.

    GF pizza is not great at the Oleander location. They are also very overpriced and I've felt sick the 2 times I've tried MM. Too many other great GF options in Wilmington to bother with this place.
