Great atmosphere. Excellent food. Our waiter Josh was awesome. Just joined right in the silliness with me, my daughter and her friends. Recommend the Kosmic Karma pizza!

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
