Mellow Mushroom has some of the best pizza. Mellow Mushroom always slices their pizza into good servings. I have enjoyed their mushroom and black olive pizza. The calzones at Mellow Mushroom are a great menu item as well. The crust for the pizza is always sprinkled with grated cheese. Great choice for a pizza restaurant.

My Husband and I do to MM fairly often and ventured out to try a new pizza this time. It was excellent! All of the flavors came together so very well--Deeeelicious! :) The waitress provided fairly good service, but never smiled one time.

This is my favorite pizza of all time. I love the crust...I am not sure what it is, but it is delicious. This is also the only pizza my husband can eat - because it is not greasy.

I've been here a few times now, and it is never bad, but sometimes it is good, and sometimes great. Sometimes the crust is nice and fluffy, but other times it is greasy and flat. They have many interesting topping combinations, so there is something for everyone. Service is good, but the pizzas take forever to cook. They are more... More

Mellow Mushroom has the best pizza around, hands down. Not to mention their great selection of beer to go along with it. The only thing I have ever had there that I didn't like was the gluten free pizza. Not only was it stiff and flavorless, but it was crazy expensive. No more "healthy" pizza for me, I'll stick with...

If you enjoy greasy Pizza, Mello Mushroom is for you. If you like a more traditional pie with traditional Italian atmosphere, try somewhere different. The service was slow, the noise level high, but the beer selection was outstanding. Not planning to return, but if the kids want to, we will..

I recently ate at Mellow Mushroom in Lexington and the House Special pizza was outstanding and cooked to perfection. The only negative with Mellow Mushroom is the price. A large House Special was $25.95 which is kinda high for pizza, but, it was very good. The service was also good and the environment was very nice. I will return to... More

It was Friday night, we waited 20 min for a table which I think was ok for Friday, however waiting for the pizza was long. It took about 35-40 minutes. The pizza was very delicious but it was a long wait, would rather order a simple one from Little Caesar! That's why I give it 4 stars.
