I revisited this place after going many years ago as an undergraduate. You order at the front, and they call your name when your order is ready. We ordered a salad, and they forgot about it until after our pizza was ready, but we didn't...More

Shakespeare's has wonderful pizza and we really liked the concept of ordering at the 'bar' and then finding a seat wherever. It's a great place for a cheap yet good meal with a group of friends.

This is our favorite place to eat in Columbia. Great food and fun atmosphere. Restarting has a couple of pinball machines too.
