The pizza is delicious and I love that we get to keep our cups. My family enjoyed sitting outside while eating and feeding crust to the birds. It was a great joy to watch the birds.

Love Shakespeare's, it is the must stop in Columbia food place. A little pricier than other pizza places but well worth it and with a very good bar.

Old school college town place. Pine wood booths, loud but pleasant. Happy crew working. Nice to everybody. Pizza very tasty, crust not too thin, cooked just right,cheesy, could have had a little more pepperoni but all in all a good satisfying pizza. Napkins are reusable shop rags, love that. Self serving soda booth wit excellent root beer. Will be back.

I found the Shakespeare's pizza to be quite good. But as a midwestern campus pizza connoisseur, it's certainly not the best I have ever had. Our sausage & tomato was a little overdone on the bottom.
