Apparently an icon in Columbia, this was a fun experience for our large group. The pizza was good; maybe a little pricey. But at least I can say I was at Shakespeare's Pizza!

This is a great place to have a fun dinner. The food is great, the staff is friendly and there are plenty of places to sit. It's really crowded and loud, so do not go here for a peaceful, quiet dinner.

We took a girls ball team here and everyone had a blast and the food was great. It is a great atmosphere, especially for kids.

We arrrived in town to be involved in the Show Me Games and everyone was telling us to check out the Pizza at Shakespeare's . Well with some cold beer and a fine house pizza we got the message.

This is a Columbia "must" experience. The atmosphere was great. The staff extremely friendly and the food was delicious. My kids enjoyed it very much. Especially when the pizza makers threw dough at them to play with. I highly recommend this place for your Columbia visit.

Wife and I travelled to Columbia, MO to ride the Katy Trail. Arrived in Columbia on Wednesday evening just in time to check in to our hotel and eat @ Shakespeare's.

We were able to dine affordably with 2 adults and 4 kids (two of them teenagers) and that alone is saying a lot. The pizza was pretty great and the staff was courteous, helpful... More

Shakespeare's Pizza is hands down the best pizza I've ever had. My husband and I were on a road trip to KC and we stopped here specifically for dinner during our drive. I was not disappointed! It's been 10+ years and it is still the best, and the cheese bread is pretty darn good too!!

Shakespeares's is a stereotypical college hangout. Great food at not too much expense. This is one pizza place where the large pizzas are still actually large. Some may think its a little expensive but you DO get what you pay for.
