Great little pub and eatery located in walking distance from Colonial Life Arena. Great variety of beer choices. Wood fired pizzas and sandwiches. Family friendly! And the staff was fun attentive and friendly. We got there at 5pm on a Saturday and it wasn’t crowded but got busy around 6:30.

Thirsty Fellow was where our family ate lunch before our visit to Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC. It was average food to me personally, but everyone who got pizza thoroughly enjoyed it. I don’t like dressing or a lot of toppings on my salads, and the regular salad that came with my grilled chicken sandwich was bland even to me, so get something other than the basic mixed greens salad if you’re someone who likes a lot of flavor. The atmosphere of the restaurant is really cool, there are vintage books on shelves all around the space, and most of the seating is on tall stools. The bathrooms are very nice, clean, and spacious as well. The only thing bad about Thirsty Fellow during my visit was the wait time. We got in and out in about an hour and a half, and that was especially long for us since we had to get to the zoo to have enough time there before it closed.

Great place to hang out with friends, relax, watch ball games on TVs, and of course, eat pizza! Salads are also good, beers are cold, and if there's a game on, there's a TV for that!

Pretzel for appetizer and pizza for a meal. That is all you need to know! HA! I order this all the time so I can only speak for these items. But all food looks good and always busy. For our girl's night last month we ate dinner and then visited, on a Wednesday night, for over 3 hours. Wait staff was friendly and took great care of us!
