Always head to Shakespeare's when I am back in Columbia, and I am never disappointed. Great pizza and tremendous atmosphere! It is an ageless tradition that never gets old and actually gets better with time.

I have heard for years how good Shakespeare's Pizza is, and I've never eaten there. Tried before, but the lines were too long, so I guess that's a testimony to how good it is. The restaurant had a fun, noisy atmosphere when I visited. On this visit, plenty of seating available inside or out, sports playing on the TV in... More

Great food, great service, great location! I love how you can get an entire pizza or just a slice. Will return and will spread the word.

It's not the best pizza I've ever had but when we go for pizza it's our go to place. Downtown has the original old town decor with all the busyness of downtown.

Shakespeare's Pizza is great place to have great pizza the first location is truly original and it is a college favorite but there are 2 other locations now that are easier to park at and a little less crazy when college is in session. The kids can get their own pizza dough that they throw over the window to them... More

As a local, I'm supposed to love this place. It was a frequent spot during college and even now for work lunches. I'll be honest, I've had much better pizza elsewhere. But for Columbia, it's tough to beat.

Not the best pizza I have ever had, but pretty good. Hand tossed. Good fresh ingredients is about the best feature. Thin and crispy crust.

Tradition to eat hear if you don't live in Collumbia. Fun easy going atmosphere. Love that they serve slices as lunch now and taking the cups home is the best!

No trip to Columbia is complete without a visit to Shakespeare pizza for pizza and salad. We went to a new location and other family arrived and they wanted to go to the downtown original location so we went again.
