There are few non chain places in Columbia where you can build your own Pizza. Thirsty fellows has a wonderful selection of beer in bottles or draft to enhance your dining experience. New to me were duck wings. Most places offer chicken wings but here there is a spicy treat that makes for a great appetizer. The staff is most... More

Awesome food, courteous/accurate service, great atmosphere and very family friendly. Great place to catch a ball game. Try the stuffed banana peppers for sure, french dip and wings were great too!

My family and I visited here for the first time and we ordered the white pizza. It was very good and so was the service. When back in the area we will definitely come back!

Every time I dine here I am thrilled with the quality of the food! You can taste the difference when a restaurant goes the extra mile. The best part is that you don't expect it to be THAT good because it's so unassuming......but it is!! Definitely try the cheeseburger soup if given the chance. I think it was the soup... More

I enjoy the menu and atmosphere. Im not deducting for not having wings tonight, but that was disappointing. Moscow mule was refreshing for one of us, the other thought it might be an acquired taste. Will - good job! Over the last few visits we have come to prefer the pear salad and pizzas. Sometimes we drink wine, sometimes beer,... More

We had dinner at Thirsty Fellow during a visit to USC. I loved the atmosphere of this place. It was near campus. They had a great selection of beers. I had a Ham and Cheese pizza which was very good. And it was surprisingly bigger than I thought I was ordering. Only thing I would say negative, service could have... More

This place has a nice bar and patio area. Great place for lunch or happy hour. I've only been here twice both times I ordered the Philly cheese steak. It's really yummy. seasoned well. Will give the pizza a try next time.

We visited recently on a Memorial Day weekend. It was a little bit of a wait, but considering the date and time was not unreasonable. I was able to sample some of the eclectic mix of draft beers at the bar while we waited. We could have gotten a table inside more quickly, but we decided to sit outside due... More

We had a great visit. Good service, but the server did bring the wrong soda once.... No big deal. The pizza was fantastic. The Carolina Chicken Sandwich was good. Upgraded to get French fries instead of chips and the serving size was HUGE! Will come back for sure!

I’ve dined at Thirsty Fellow several times and always left happy! The atmosphere is casual with a great selection of beers to choose from and the food is pretty good too, especially the stone-fired pizza, fish & chips, and Philly cheesesteak. There’s outdoor seating as well so take your doggy too!
