Fun Atmosphere, Good Pizza!

This is a really fun restaurant to visit for both children and adults. With some of the best pizza in Columbia, Shakespeare's is a hotspot for locals, college students, and travelers! You'll definitely have to stop by if you're going through Columbia!

It is a Columbia landmark, a tradition, an icon, an institution.... , but the pizza is just barely adequate.

If you're in Columbia, you have to stop at Shakespeare's. There's several locations, but the flagship store is on 9th, so go to that one!

The food was good!!! The kids enjoyed playing with the dough while we waited for our order. I would recommend this place to my friends.

When walking onto the college campus, we immediately noticed a sign directing diners to a new location for Shakespeare's Pizza. Fellow campus visitors explained that this restaurant is a landmark in Columbia and that we needed to visit the new location although they preferred the old location that had been razed. We took the opportunity on our second night on... More

Brought our U7 boys soccer team here to celebrate during the Show Me State Games. We reserved one of the rooms. We had such an excellent time. Everything was set up, food was great, and the adults were able to enjoy themselves and not worry that the very energetic kiddos were not bothering other customers. They made it SO easy!

We picked up our pizza, so I don't know much about the actual restaurant. We received a discount for our large order which was nice. It wasn't the best pizza I've ever had, but it does surpass the chain pizza places.

Restaurant was clean and crowded. You know the pizza is always good there. Good beer, good atmosphere. A town staple

I have been to Shakespeare's several times and love it. I took my husband for his first time and he loved it! We had a ham and pineapple pizza and it was amazing. Thin sauce and crust just like we like it! Great atmosphere.

The pizza is really great. Nice atmosphere. No table service. It's serve yourself. We enjoyed it very much. Best pizza we had on our trip.
