Yum yum yum!!!

Whenever we are in town we always stop to have a Shakespeare's pizza!! There is sometimes a long wait and they do take awhile to make your pizza sometimes, but it's SOOO good and worth the wait!

Fabulous pizza...better then advertised...the staff however were a bit lacking in customer service....well at least the only employee that we came in contact with at the order counter. I explained we were from out of town and really didnt know what the process was and she actually rolled her eyes at us! The she pointed to the drink area and... More

The downtown Shakespeare's is our favorite but the pizza is good over on the west side as well. The south end is just different for some reason. We only like this pizza in the restaurant. Delivered it takes on the taste of the cardboard. Frozen in the grocery store are ok, not sure what they do differently when frozen. The... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor I was looking forward to trying this pizza. I ordered the pepperoni. I liked the pepperoni, the cheese and the sauce but was disappointed with the crust. I was expecting a much thinner crust. Also, I was very disappointed with the amount of pepperoni on the pizza! Two per slice if lucky!

Ordered meatlovers pizza and cheesy bread. Both very good. Place is always busy! Kids get ball of pizza dough to play with at the front.

Of all the pizza joints in Columbia Shakespeare's is by far the best. Great selection of toppings and interesting combos like artichoke hearts, black olives and Canadian bacon. They also have salads and sell pizza by the slice. The downtown location has all kinds of cool vintage signs and other nostalgia collectibles hanging on the walls. I've been there numerous... More

Fun restaurant on the edge of downtown and the edge of campus. Kid friendly. Nice selection of pizza toppings. Good on delivery, too (get a $2 off coupon by picking up--or googling--Add On free local ads and coupons). Friendly servers.

Too many college kids. Pizza is subpar. It's alright in a pinch. Just don't get a plain cheese pizza make sure you get toppings. It's fun to watch them through the dough throw

Experience the best of Columbia at Shakespeare's. You are gonna' get great pizza, beer, soda, and maybe a salad--that's it. A large, comfortable, rustic restaurant. Sometimes noisy, usually busy, and always an interesting crowd spanning a wide range of ages and backgrounds. Grab a seat by a window and watch the people of Columbia walk past as as they travel...
