Spectacular as always! We were in town for graduation, and we're afraid that service might be bad, but service and food were great, just like every other time we've been. We had to eat there one last time!!

I have had the best and the worst pizza here. They have actually burned the bottom of the crust once but the next time I went it was amazing. Service is fairly fast. Locals and students rave about the place.

Hey there! Thanks for giving us another shot, and a nice review. Burnt crust is never what we want. Please don't hesitate to let us know if something like that happens again. We would be more than happy to fix it for you. Thanks again!

I had the veggie pie and it didn't disappoint. There were some good craft beers on tap. Lots of college kids, but that's to be expected with its proximity to MIZZOU.

The building may be new--and it really is fantastic--but other than the fact that you can get a seat on a Friday night, you won't even realize it, because the pizza and atmosphere are still the same! It's still the best and a landmark for...More

After tearing it to the ground and rebuilding the original part of Shakespeare's is still in tack with a large addition. The pizza and cheese bread were great. An excellent place to stop when downtown.

The pizza is great, and very fun. Even though they were very busy, they quickly took our order and in less than 15 minutes had the pizza out, very hot

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.
