Good pizza but you may have to wait quite a while for it depending on the time of day you go. Also, the pizza crust is so hard that you must use a knife if you plan to eat it with a fork, but not...More

Thanks for coming in! We appreciate the feedback because it can only help us to improve. We know our location on 8th Street (Tempspeare's) is a bit smaller than our original. Due to construction downtown, we had to temporarily move over a street. Although, next...More

We went for lunch and had a fun time. The pizza is a local favorite and is reasonably priced. It isn't my favorite pizza, but that is subjective to everyone, so I would recommend a visit for a low key lunch. This would also be...More

First time ordering from here and we enjoyed it. The spinach and cheese pizza was flavorful but lacked a bit on the cheese and sauce. The garlic cheese bread was delicious and very garlicky with very little grease. My coworker enjoyed her meat pizza and...More

Wasn’t a big fan of the pizza, the crust was a little hard to get through, the Canadian bacon was exceptionally greasy, and the sauce tasted cheap to me. I liked the college town vibe being near the university, outdoor seating was nice, but the...More

By far the best place we have come to in Columbia. The atmosphere can get loud but that makes it even more appealing. The pizzas are fabulous. Go for the homemade ice cream for dessert.

Shakespeare's has the best pizza in town. The atmosphere is great and they give the kids balls of dough to play with while waiting for your pizza. It's a little pricey but worth it.

Great Pizza, A very good lunch special and affordable. A large slice of pizza will fill you up. Get a cool Shakespeare's cup to keep. Has been a institution in Columbia for a few decades.

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.

Shakespeare's Pizza... where the pizzas are round, the pepperonis are all right-side-up, and all the pint glasses clink at a perfect C-sharp.
