We went here for lunch and it was delicious. Lots of variety and speciality pizzas. The inside had a fun atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and gave us suggestions of places to visit in the area.

Fall seasonal butternut squash pizza is awesome, when this location bothers to actually offer the brand's limited-run menu items.

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

Love Mellow Mushroom Pizza!!! My absolute favorite pizza place. We live in a small town so anytime we travel we seek out a Mellow Mushroom. My daughter is a student at UK now, so I can visit often and get scrumdidlyumptious pizza!!! q

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!

Our first visit to Mellow Mushroom! We were traveling home to Chicago from South Carolina and stopped in Lexington for the night. Mellow Mushroom was the best part of our 12 hours in Lexington. 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!!!
