Shakespeare's pizza is absolutely the best pizza in Columbia. I like the master piece with wheat crust. A side salad is a good starter. Nice selection of beer on tap. Very family friendly. This place can get really crowded on most any night. Don't worry...More

Made it to the newly re-opened Shakes and it is amazingly the same and the pizza is as good as always. Get pepper cheese on your pizza, people!

This is a Columbia tradition from what I've heard - tried it for the first time this past weekend and it did not disaappoint! There was plenty of space, not too crowded for a Sunday lunch. Wait time was about 20 minutes for a pizza....More

It lives up to its high rating! Delish fresh pizza loaded with toppings and spinach salad was one of best ever! Sit outside and enjoy the comings and goings of mizzou students.

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.
