We are from the Northeast and we know good Pizza. South Philly, NY, and a few other places have really great Pizza. Partly its the water that makes the dough good. Here in Lexington I prefer Tonella's Bistro and their brick oven Pizza and other specialties. If I liked the mellow mushroom, I would go there. They do have a... More

Love the colorful wall to ceiling murals there. Good pizza but a little pricey. We had a birthday party for our daughter one Saturday afternoon there and was surprised it wasn't crowded at all . Fun, relaxed place. Service is just okay.

Mellow Mushroom is a great place for pizza and beer. The pizzas are fresh and hot and the selection of beers is awesome. Speciality pizzas abound but plain old pepperoni and cheese are on the menu too. I do find it pricey.

Decided to pop in for a quick bite since we just back into town, staff was nice as usual but the wait for a hoagie on a non busy Monday was way too long. 30 minutes. Unfortunately this is the second time we've had a long wait for food.... Wondering whats happening to the place.....

I'm not really understanding all of the bad reviews, as this is easily one of the better Mellow locations I've been to. The beer selection is great and the staff has always been attentive and quick on the draw. The food has always been good (I much prefer it to the Vista location), although the large pizzas can sometimes be... More

I have lived in a lot of towns and traveled a lot. I would say this is the worst mellow I have ever been to. The pizzas are bland at this location, the staff thinks they are "2 cool for school" and the overall service is terrible. I have tried it twice and had the same experience both times.

We ordered a sausage, mushroom, and feta cheese pizza and salad to go. The spinach salad was fresh and delicious but the pizza was terrible. It tasted as though it had sat out quite a while and had such bland flavor. It was cold and the crust was not at all crusty but soft and chewy. We picked the pizza... More

Truly a bad experience. The service was slow, no drink refills were offered, the silverware was filthy. When we asked for clean silverware, we were told that it was only water spots. I know what water spots look like! This was dried food and grease! The calzone was under cooked and doughy. Maybe we just caught them on a bad... More

Pros: lots of tables, all booths can seat at least 6 people and the bar area is very large. There is a lot of outdoor seating and the quirkily offbeat décor and full view of the pizza dough being tossed makes it fun. If you are vegan, vegetarian, or need gluten free you will have lots of choices as they... More
