“A staple place for us to eat when we come to Lexington.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Greek salad, vegetable pizza, Bayou Blu with shrimp was our meal this time. Nothing seems to be a disappointment at this place! We had to pick up unfortunately because it is always a fun place to just be.

“Chicago to Lexington”
Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Wife and I stopped here on a recent visit to UK. Wife had the pepperoni pizza and I had the jerk chicken hoagie. Both were excellent. We sat inside but they do have an outside eating area (picnic tables). We will visit again.

“Great pizza, cool place”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Great atmosphere for a pizza place right next to University of Kentucky's campus. Lots of organic options and has a bit of a psychedelic Grateful Dead feel. With the classic rock soundtrack and the great selection of beers on tap, this is a great place for the late night study group or a place to meet with friends off campus.

“Very Laid Back Place With Good Food”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Mellow Mushroom is a campus staple in Lexington. The atmosphere is a bit weird but the staff is very friendly and laid back. When you walk in you feel like you stepped into Alice In Wonderland during the trippy scenes. It can throw you off a bit but the food is great. I got the Cheesesteak and while it wasn't the best I have ever had it was pretty decent..and cheap. Refills were free and the service was exceptional.

The crowd can be a bit rowdy on the weekends as this is a popular place for UK students to go on the weekends. If your in town I would recommend going on a weekday afternoon to avoid a crowd.

“My kind of place!”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Stopped in here for a couple brewskys and they had a great selection of craft beers. I got a pizza that was delicious and I really liked the vibe/atmosphere here. I was solo and didn't feel awkward at all. I would love to go here again, if I'm ever in Lexington I surely will!
