Best pizza in town

The only thing that might make this pizza better is a wood fired oven but it wouldn't be by much. Delicious!

We went to this place to try it because it had such hype. Food was ok, not great not bad either. I like sliced meatballs on my pizza, not an option here. Pizza was $28 for onions, mushrooms and sausage. Long wait, parking spaces are to tight, & to expensive for what you get. When I'm in town again I... More

Shakespeare's is our family's favorite pizza place. Both of my kids now out of state with families of their own, but you can be sure when they come to visit, pizza at Shakespeare's is on the list of things to do. They are fairly consistent in quality; occasionally the oven guy gets too busy and will leave the pie in... More

Great place to go for pizza, if you don't mind a long wait when it gets really busy. Reasonable prices as well

I've eaten a lot of these pies, and they are always delicious, whether I eat there, or pick one up to go. Generous toppings, perfect crust. In STL, we can get a limited selection of these in the grocery stores, and while a cut above most frozen pizzas, they don't hold a candle to the fresh ones, so when I'm... More

Stopped in for one last meal in the old building before it is razed and rebuilt. This is my favorite pizza anywhere. Nothing fancy, but the place is loaded with history. The beer is cold and cheap. You are surrounded by young college aged kids who are excited to be alive. Oh, and did I mention the pizza is delish......I... More

Grabs some pizza before Hoochfest and wasn't that pleased. crust was nothing more than a take home variety. Got the Hawaiian pizza and was OK. I think my wife had too many memories of this place to overlook the quality. I guess I should of stopped in after hoochfest

Great place that I've going to for more than 25 years. Pizza is very very good. Salads are even tasty if that's your thing. Lots of cold Beer. Shakespeare's offers lots of ambiance and fun. Staff is normally fun loving and helpful.

Stopped by the downtown location, wasn't real busy and got a table right a way. Pizza is ordered at the counter and they call your name when it is ready. This is local pizza done right. They obviously take pride in their pie and use the best ingredients. The crust was to die for, not super thin and not thick,... More
