My parents and I went here on a Friday night while we were in town for the weekend. None of us have ever eaten at a Mellow Mushroom and I've heard good things so we thought we would give it a try. They were pretty busy, but there was no wait to sit outside at one of the picnic tables.... More

Came here for quick bite.. Place was packed..we ordered a gluten free pizza with toppings of Italian sausage, andouille sausage and onions.. We had to wait for a while but it was delicious and we end up ordering another one.. Totally loved this pizza but I gotta go back to try other stuff.. Definitely check this place out!!!

Stopped in for lunch today and was pleasantly surprised by the fun atmosphere and the charm of a locally decorated place to eat. We started off with the pretzels and beer cheese dip which was amazing then built our own pizza with Roma tomatoes, applewood smoked bacon and onion!! It was the best pizza we have had. Great food and... More

We love going to Mellow Mushroom. Its kid friendly, has beer, and fantastic pizza. The sauce has such great flavor. One of the top 3 pizza places I have ever had. The employees are very friendly, too. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Had a great experience here while passing through Lexington. Had Parmesan pretzels to start and they were amazing. Then split a red potato pizza which I can honestly say was the best pizza I have ever had in my life. Our waitress was super friendly. Highly recommended!

This is some of the best pizza anywhere, love it! Great service as well! Only drawback to this location is lack of parking. Do not be drawn in by the lot across the street, it belongs to U of KY and you will get a ticket, even though it is not well marked (intentionally, I'm sure).

I've been a Mellow Mushroom fan for about ten years. Great pizza made with great dough and great toppings. If you are looking for a generic pepperoni you'll be happy. If you're looking for something exciting and unique, you'll be very happy! Surprisingly, they also have my favorite Greek salad. Their esperanza dressing is my favorite. Order it! Their pizza...

We ordered from LexEatIn and we were unable to customize some of the orders such as the steak and cheese (sub?)- it came and had many things on it we didnt like and wished we had the option of removing upon the order of everything. The pizza we got was okay but I do not think it is the best... More

Stopped in late to grab a bite to eat. Had the hummus plate (1/2 price) and the pizza. Both were incredible but the pizza crust is unlike any I've had before! Definitely worth visiting!
