Mellow Mushroom Lexington - The Story

Inspired by the 70s, the restaurant has a vintage Mellow Mushroom feel. The exterior of the brick building features bold murals on three sides and a forest-style awning extending across the fourth. Painted picnic tables that are shaded by large umbrellas provide colorful outdoor seating. The interior of the restaurant features eclectic murals and artwork, including a painted hostess stand and a sticker collection above the kitchen. A tree sculpture in the main dining room gives the restaurant a magic forest feel.

Customer Reviews

Typically pretty good pizza. Our pizza got burned so we had to wait while they made us another and brought it out. But the pizza was worth the wait. It was very good and the crust was really tasty. Mellow Mushroom is always a cool place to look around as well, good place to take kids or a family.

Mellow Mushroom is a great downtown restaurant. Parking is terrible but the food is worth it. Everything always tastes fresh and delicious. The staff are super friendly. It is a little pricey but it is high quality. I had the Pacific Rim (red sauce, mozzarella, ham, bacon, caramelized onion, pineapple, and jalapeño) and my wife had the Kosmic Karma (comes with red sauce but she had a pesto base, sheep's milk feta, mozzarella, spinach, sun-dried roasted tomato, Roma tomatoes, and a pesto swirl). We each had a small and they were about $13 apiece. They also have a decent selection of beer and cocktails at average pricing.

Always great music, with many grunge hits. Calzone is huge! I liked the dough better on pizza though; thin crust with big air bubbles in the rim. Their draft beer selection is great and they sell O'doul's beer.

You cannot go wrong with a Mellow Mushroom. I will say it was a little wierd that the server jumped up on the booth and walked the seats to bus every booth. It was a pleasure to watch Haley making pizza after pizza from my table. My pizza was everything I have learned to love from Mellow Mushroom and I will continue to look for one and be happy I found one on my travels😁.

1st timers!!! Food and atmosphere was Great. We will definitely be back. Everything was made to order hot and fresh!!! Pizza is ALWAYS fresh 😋
