Columbia is a college town so a pizza place is going to be busy. We ordered and then went for a walk around town. The pizza was pretty good but it was greasy. (Perhaps the greasy is WHY it is good.) I loved that I...More

We called to have a pizza delivered to our hotel after a long day of driving and were glad we did. It took 45 minutes as promised and was well worth the wait. Far better than any of the chain pizza stores with fresh ingredients...More

Shakespeare's has an interesting way of ordering food, you either walk up to a counter and buy slices or go to a different counter and order a pizza made for you, they call your name when it's done. Your get your own drinks from their...More

An institution. A way of life. A place where everybody knows your name. A place of glorious anonymity, supplemented by copious amounts of libations, and pretty good pizza!

You can't leave Columbia without trying Shakespeare's. The students live and die by it and you should too. Cool college environment, good pizza although a little on the greasy side. Also delivers and hosts fundraisers.

Pizza is hot, beer is cold! Definitely a "must do" when in town for a football game! No trip to CoMo is complete without a visit to this iconic establishment!

I heard a lot about this place, but I think the pizza itself is overrated. The pizza isn't really anything special. It's not bad, it's not excellent - but it's good enough for me. It basically tastes like any other college town pizza joint. The...More

This pizza will never disappoint..... we cannot visit the area and not have pizza and cold draft adult beverages. Generous size pizza and they are never stingy with the toppings either. Frozen pizzas available to take with you.

Yes they do have a gluten free option. They only have a 12" crust available and it's not a crust they produce within their kitchen.
