The location is decent, though parking can get a little finicky depending on the hour you go. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is fun and upbeat. The music is a tad loud and so are the people, but it's young and enjoyable. The most fun was playing bingo for coupons. My boyfriend and I both won a game... More

We always try to put Mellow Mushroom on our travel pizza list if it is available. We opted for take out since we wanted to get back to our hotel to watch the game. I did not think to indicate that we would need at the very least utensils for our salad. The cheese mufflata was good while it was... More

3rd trip to lexington and first time at this establishment. Had a late lunch, a meaty pizza and some wings. Everything is baked , not fried. Service was great, LOTS of good beer to choose from. A nice find.

I have visited several Mellow Mushroom locations in North and South Carolina as well as Florida. When visiting the Lexington location I found friendly people all around, consistent quality and presentation of food. Of most note was the very generous portion served when I ordered a calzone. Calzones are a Mellow Mushroom trademark and Lexington was no exception. Done to... More

First time eating here. The pizza was great. We had the mighty meaty with onions. The crust was baked just right. Enjoyed the hummus for an appetizer. Prices were inline with other pizza places with similar menus. I highly recommend this place. It was full but wait staff kept everything flowing smoothly.

I cannot take my mother anywhere anymore without her asking "Is there a mellow mushroom?" So we ended up here, chowing down in another city, in another MM. This time I got my sister to try something other than plain cheese, and we all tried a bite of each other's food. The potato skin pizza is a little....strange, but very... More

The food & atmosphere are awesome! The staff is great! I could eat there every day for lunch if I worked closer to downtown! Also have gluten free pizza. Food is always fresh, & the best part they give you more pizza than you can eat, which means leftovers!!!!

Nice place with very friendly service, but if your looking for "normal" pizza, you might want to go somewhere else. Very little pesto sauce underneath generous amounts of toppings on a limp crust satisfied my hunger but not my urge to have pizza. Beer selection is good and plenty of TV's to watch the game on. Located right on the... More

Traditional we are not, Mike. Our style tends to be a little on the quirkier side, but we like to think that’s what sets us apart from others. Thanks for spending a few moments of your time to let others know about Mellow Lexington. We’re glad you enjoyed the beer selection and ample amount of TVs we have. Come back... More

Great place to go. The food was fresh and great tasting. The pizza and sandwich was pleasing and filling. The only complaint was the kids menu wasn't the greatest. Laid back place.
