As always the pizza was great. Can't beat mellow mushroom crust. It's the best. Service was good also. If you are looking for a pizza in Lexington look no further than mellow mushroom!!!!!

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.

My husband and I tried Mellow Mushroom while in town for one night. Had the Mellowteranean (sp?) and the pretzel app with beer cheese dip. Both dishes were amazing! Did carry out but staff was super friendly on phone and in store. Need to get some of these in Ohio.

We were there on a Saturday afternoon, it was somewhat busy and had several college football games on their many large screen TVs. Near the UK campus, the customers were of a wide range of social status'. The parking is a little tricky and could be enough of a problem to make you go elsewhere. If you can park nearby,... More

This was my first experience with Mellow Mushroom. I normally do not eat Pizza, but this experience has changed my thoughts on frequent Pizza. The only negative was we were seated under the music speaker. WAY TO LOUD!

My wife and I were in love with the Mellow Mushroom ever since we first tried it in Hilton Head. There are no locations near us in northern Ohio so we jumped at the chance to visit a favorite pizza shop. The menu was a little bit different with locally designed specialty pizzas and appetizers. From the start though, I... More

After going to keenland, we found this great place. It was very crowded and we waited longer than we were told, but we still have to give them good reviews. It is a kid-friendly place with amazing pizza. They even had a build-your-own salad for the health conscious...and it was great too.
