Mellow Mushroom has had gluten free pizza for a while now. I'm required to eat gluten free because I have Celiac disease. Their old recipe, in my opinion, simply was not worth the calories. They have a new, updated version and it is spectacular! For those of you with Celiac disease, you know that good pizza is hard to find,... More

It is quality food but just too overpriced. The service is decent and they do have a good selection of both beer as well as pizza

We accidentally found this restaurant six years ago and would not consider visiting Lexington without eating here. We are only sorry that we live 575 miles away!

Short wait well worth it. We had the Philosophy Pie, Caesar Pizza and the Maui Maui pizza. All were delicious and this comes from a Chicago... More

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.
