Super fun place. The decor is as interesting as the name. Inside the doors you will be greated by a giant rainbow colored mushroom. There is a tree in the middle of the bar. The whole restaurant is painted with colorful murals and fun characters....More

I come to Lexington every few months to get some shopping done that I can’t get in my hometown. It’s about a two hour drive and I always look forward to eating here

If you like above great pizza and a very cool place to eat, this is your place. I went here for the first time, and I’m mad at myself that I have never gone here before.

We were simply 'food' disappointed in a recent visit to a high end hotel so we chose to have Mellow Mushroom delivered. The website was a breeze as were the selections. The gluten options are great as are the normal and specialty pizza options and...More

Kind of a funkey, 70's, hippie throwback atmosphere. Bottom line, great pizza, very good beer selection on tap including local breweries. My favorite is shotgun wedding or the fantastic Bourbon Beer. With pizza yum!

Had excellent service! Server was very attentive and nice! We ordered the house special pizza. It had generous toppings. Crust was nice and buttery. I would definitely return and try other options. Atmosphere was nice also.
