A "Thirsty Fellow"? You get the idea.
Thirsty Fellow Pizzeria and Pub is the brainchild of Willie Durkin, known for his previous establishments: Shannon's, Sneakers, and Durkin's. Willie went in search of the perfect pie and found it in Charlotte. Peter Reinhart, author of American Pie, faculty member at Johnson and Wales, and past owner of Pie Town, makes the pizza he was looking for. Willie successfully completed a pizza course at Johnson and Wales, and brought the perfect pizza to Columbia.
Owners Willie Durkin, Chuck Belcher, and Terry Davis want you to join the Thirsty Fellow family. Located in the USC Innovista area, we have a comfortable atmosphere, a great menu, a full bar and plenty of televisions. Open for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, put Thirsty Fellow on your "to do" list.
