Pizza was good, sauce was a little bland. It was very busy but the service was good. Beer was a great price $3.00 for tap including blue moon.

As an old graduate from Mizzou, it's great to return to a meal at this classic college pizza joint. The pizza is great, beer is even better! (Plus my youngest son loves the t-shirts!) You gotta try it!

Went to Shakespeare's based on Trip Advisor ratings. What a disappointment. I suppose those who live in Columbia, who think this is good are pizza are Pizza Challenged. This pizza was not much better than frozen pizza from the supermarket. The crust appeared to be pre-made and was stiff as cardboard. Cheese was good quality and sauce tasteless. Maybe the... More

I guess they are suffering growing pains as the service for delivery horrible, Thought I would give it a chance again, but they failed. On top of a $3.50 delivery charge and $15.00 Minimum, they delivery took more than an hour and a half and there was no apology. With all the good choices in Columbia we are taking our... More

We came here because everyone raves that this is the best pizza in Missouri. If this is the best pizza the Show Me State has to offer, then I pity Missourians. The crust was too tough; it was hard to chew and impossible to cut with a knife. The pizza was bland and flavorless, and the cheese garlic bread was... More

This place was fabulous. I really can't do it justice. The pizza was so good. Staff was very friendly. Place was packed and they still managed to do a wonderful job. I gather that this place is always packed. I look forward to going back!

We had lunch here with family. The kids ate free and loved the pizza. The adults also loved the pizza. Very casual and fun place to go.

Great pizza, great delivery, frozen pies in local stores. If you want a taste AND feel of college town, USA, you'll find it here. I won't say it's the best in town, but it is as good as the other top restaurants.

The food was great. Ordered pizza and salad- both were made with care and effort. Pizza is hand-made. Salad very fresh. Long wait for it, very popular place so it comes with the territory I suppose. But staff was very pleasant, helpful, and accommodating of any needs expressed. Worth going to!!

We eat at Shakespeare's often when traveling across I-70. We ate their on Sunday at 5:00 PM this week and as always were not disappointed. We ordered a 1/2 meat lover and 1/2 The Masterpiece. The crust and the fresh ingredients are what brings me back and that it reminds me of my college years.
