I've traveled all over the country on business, so I've had my fair share of pizza while staying in each area. Shakespeare's is not just great pizza for the area, it's the best pizza period. Only fresh, local ingredients are used to prepare each masterpiece. The employees actually take pride in their work, and it shows in presentation and in... More

This is a place most people in Columbia will tell you is great. The experience is enjoyable with the unique design of the restaurant and the atmosphere. However the pizza is OK at best.

The salads are actually pretty delicious if you need some greenery to go with your carbs. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere in the downtown location is fun; noisy but fun. Be prepared to use your outside... More

If you're in Columbia, Missouri try a pizza from here! The original establishment near the University of Missouri offers the most unique atmosphere but the other locations are more family friendly.

The atmosphere is college student central. Good pizza, but way over priced for what you get. If I had to pick would go to Mcnally's for pizza. Better pricing,less students, good pizza.

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!
