Walk the plank and dive into Mobile’s fun and eclectic pirate theme.

Captains of the sea

Mellow Mushroom West Mobile

The menu at Mellow Mushroom is just as much fun and eclectic as its’ art work. Signature Pizza selections such as the “Kosmic Karma” or “Holy Shiitake” reflect the irreverent vibe.

Approximately 20 minutes away from Mobile Bay, a buccaneer named Chad Hicks planted another flag in the heart of Alabama. This time he wanted to showcase the Gulf coast utilizing imagery of pirate life and their ships. Welcoming guests outside are a couple of familiar captains of the sea, Jack Sparrow and the ever-lovable Captain Barbosa. Once inside, the feeling of being on the main deck surges when patrons notice ropes dangling from the rafters. The queen of the Krakens resides above the kitchen making sure that every stoned baked pizza is cooked to perfection. The dining room at Mellow Mushroom has a feature table cut from a tree trunk with a wooden mosaic design that seats a party up to eight, found right underneath the light fixture made from recycled drums. The motif extends all the way to the climate controlled patio that is furnished with painted skateboards from the “Flow Show” whose funding helps support the development of local skate parks and other skateboard programs. The creativity of the patio was achieved by artists whom are native to Mobile making the restaurant that much more special to the surrounding neighborhoods.

For art lovers who would like to learn more about the salt water masterpieces and its creators, log in online by following the directions on the plaque located at the front of the store.
