My husband loved this place in college. He took me and our son on a visit back home and insisted we go here. He was right. Great pizza. Fast and friendly. Large seating area too. Looked like you could get a quiet table in the back of you wanted.

Recently came back to Columbia after a year away, and couldn't not visit Shakes. It has recently reclaimed it's old spot downtown, and despite the modern apartments on top of it, the bottom level restaurant looks very much the same.

The best pizza and pizza joint anywhere......and it's BACK where it should be! The decor: same brick, woodwork, old signs, concrete floor, bar, and basic layout....with a boost in seating! It's like it's never been gone, just tweeked with a bit of upgrades. I've been a Shakespeare's devotee since it opened when I was in college. There's no place better!... More

We are frequent delivery customers of Shakespeare's. Sometimes we even get in the car and drive to one of the locations to meet several friends. But there is nothing like calling ahead of time and scheduling when you want pizzas and salads delivered! It is so great when we have family and friends coming to town and plans are loose,... More

We went here and found this great pizza place that also had great service. We came in and the cashiers explained the process and made some recommendation. We had a great meal, caught the basketball game and enjoyed the evening. It is right next to the university, which is very nice. If you want some great pizza and you're in... More

If you are a pizza fan then you must stop in at one of Shakespeares locations. Great atmosphere along with friendly service! Pizza is yummy too!
