After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor I was looking forward to trying this pizza. I ordered the pepperoni. I liked the pepperoni, the cheese and the sauce but was disappointed with the crust. I was expecting a much thinner crust. Also, I was very disappointed with the amount of pepperoni on the pizza! Two per slice if lucky!

Ordered meatlovers pizza and cheesy bread. Both very good. Place is always busy! Kids get ball of pizza dough to play with at the front.

Of all the pizza joints in Columbia Shakespeare's is by far the best. Great selection of toppings and interesting combos like artichoke hearts, black olives and Canadian bacon. They also have salads and sell pizza by the slice. The downtown location has all kinds of cool vintage signs and other nostalgia collectibles hanging on the walls. I've been there numerous... More

Fun restaurant on the edge of downtown and the edge of campus. Kid friendly. Nice selection of pizza toppings. Good on delivery, too (get a $2 off coupon by picking up--or googling--Add On free local ads and coupons). Friendly servers.

Too many college kids. Pizza is subpar. It's alright in a pinch. Just don't get a plain cheese pizza make sure you get toppings. It's fun to watch them through the dough throw

Experience the best of Columbia at Shakespeare's. You are gonna' get great pizza, beer, soda, and maybe a salad--that's it. A large, comfortable, rustic restaurant. Sometimes noisy, usually busy, and always an interesting crowd spanning a wide range of ages and backgrounds. Grab a seat by a window and watch the people of Columbia walk past as as they travel...

This is the best pizza ever. All three locations are really fun. Downtown is usually filled with college students, More families at the other two. They always have dough for the kids to play with. Fun atmosphere and great pizza.

I'm a fan of non-ordinary pizzas so Shakespeare's has a great topping selection that includes all the originals (pepperoni, sausage, olives) and some special ones (artichokes, pepperjack cheese). Their atmosphere is conducive to hanging out with a group whether it be rowdy kids (who can get a piece of dough to play with while waiting), or a patio hang-out with... More

Shakes has pizza unlike any pizza that you will have anywhere. A Columbia classic. They have unique ingredients such as pepper cheese and artichokes. Their speciality pizzas are great.
