UPDATE: While the doors were open on Saturday, Mellow Mushroom is NOT officially open to the general public just yet.  According to their Marketing Manager, the packed parking lot and busy interior were a result of a corporate training session and that the official grand opening will be announced in the very near future.  Stay tuned as we will release that date as soon as it is made available! 


We've been waiting for this one for a while. The popular pizza chain restaurant, Mellow Mushroom, appears to have opened the doors to their new Toms River location.

The business hasn't officially posted about it on social media, but those driving by report that the doors were definitely open on Saturday (December 10).

Mellow Mushroom restaurants specialize in pizza, but they also serve calzones, hoagies, salads, appetizers, and they have a wide beer selection. They mostly have stores in the South – from Maryland to Florida, and Midwest – from Michigan to Iowa.

The chain's first New Jersey restaurant is located at 1111 Route 37 West in Toms River. That's just past Walmart if you're heading west down 37 (near CVS). We have a map here to show you where the new eatery has opened.

Mellow Mushroom shared a photo from inside the restaurant earlier this fall that got lots of locals excited for their opening.
