Spring has sprung and so begins prime patio season at Mellow Mushroom restaurants around the country. Nationwide, more than 150 locations offer patio dining and outdoor beverage service. Enjoy outdoor dining with family and friends while soaking in the beautiful weather on a Mellow Mushroom patio. Most Mellow Mushroom locations also allow dogs, so guests can enjoy the beautiful weather with their favorite canine on a Mellow patio.

Each Mellow Mushroom restaurant offers a menu of stone-baked pizzas, national and local beers on tap,  and hand-crafted cocktails, along with freshly made salads and a wide assortment of munchies.

“We like to keep the vibe mellow at our restaurants and outdoor dining helps to set the mellow mood we strive to achieve,” says Anne Mejia, VP Brand Development, Mellow Mushroom. “Stone-baked pizzas, iced cold beer, and hand-crafted cocktails go hand-in-hand with dining al fresco at Mellow Mushroom.”
