Holy shitake

We were visiting Kentucky and decided to venture out to Lexington. We stumbled across mellow mushroom and ordered two salads and a medium holy shitake pizza. Everything was delicious and we had a crazy amount of left overs. Only complaint was that the service was quite slow.

I have celiac disease so I was thrilled to find another place that served gluten free pizza. They had a pre-made pizza dough which they put fresh toppings on. I also had salad and ranch dressing. I did ask the server to check to be sure the Ranch did not contain gluten. I did not see the container, but she... More

This location delivers to the hotel where I stayed. Service was fast and prices are reasonable. I has a small chef salad that is a decent size. I also ordered the large baked ziti, which was more than enough food for 2-3 people with average appetites. Highly recommended!

Love Mellow Mushroom's Philosopher's pie, the Holy Shiitake pie, and the Gourmet White pizza. You can't go wrong with any of the pies. They also have tasty craft beers on tap and by the bottle. I am a porter/stout person, and there are always some available. The Greek salad, soft pretzels, and garlic bread are so worthwhile as well. The... More

The decor was fun and happy.... as a mushroom should be..... we got the Holy Shittake Pie , the taste was worthy of a highly over priced classy jacket and tie only place. Really the crust was perfect!, the ingredients were so fresh and flavourful! It was great pizza! The service was fast and friendly. We will be back again!

We ordered salads a meatball sandwich and a great pizza. They serve Abita rootbeer in a bottle. The restaurant is in downtown Lexington and was near some of our activities: Alltech brewery/distillery and the public library.

If you're in Lexington for any reason...or if you're in any part of the country and see a Mellow Mushroom, stop and get a pizza!! Nothing better than a homemade pizza. Amazing crust, super sauce....just delicious all around.

Not a thin crust, and the toppings are pretty standard, but a good fall-back pizza if you are in Lexington. Friendly service and reasonable prices here.
