I have eaten at Shakespeare's Pizza in Columbia twice and have loved it both times. I'm from Chicago and would like to think I know my pizza and I rate Shakespeare's very high and the best in Columbia frankly. Highly recommended. Great college town setting as well.

I just ate there for the first time in years. It was my second visit. The last one must have been 10 years ago. Atmosphere is great. Really nice inside. The pizza was exactly how I remembered it. I know the pizza is loved. For me, personally, it's not my favorite, but I can see why people like it. It's... More

Stopped here on vacation. Pizza was good. Thin crust, toppings piled high. Probably the best aspect of the restaurant is the location. Right across the street for the University of Missouri. Garlic bread was okay, salad not great. We wanted to eat in a college pizza joint, this place certainly fits the bill.

We love Shakespeare's! Cute place with a fun vibe. Always the first place to eat when we have people from out of town come for a visit.

This pizza is nothing to rave about. We were very unimpressed. It was very loud and I found a hair in my food. The salad was not good either. Will not be back.

Quirky, cool, and crowded! Shakespeare's is a tradition and serves the best pizza with fresh, high quality ingredients. Dough balls for the kids, what more could you want? Shakes can be very noisy, especially on game days. Pizza by the slice at lunchtime.

Shakes is back at it's old location but that's about the only thing the same. It's larger and it just doesn't feel the same. Yes the Pizza is great but the place doesn't the same maybe with time and some STAG on draf!!

Saw that this place was highly recommend in TripAdvisor so, I thought I would give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. The pizza crist was not too thin and not too thick. The topping were fresh and pizza was well prepared. However, the salad was average at best.

If you love for toppings the masterpiece is the way to go. It's actually almost overwhelming how many toppings they load on that pizza. The people are friendly and the food is great. If it's not too busy the cooks will let kids play with pizza crust while they wait for their pizza to be made.
