I was in town for the Georgetown South Carolina basketball game on December 5th. Wanted to get a bite to eat before the game. Went to a national sub chain and did not like the prices on the menu.. Saw the Thirsty Fellow across the parking lot and decided to give it a try. There was a 15 minute wait for a table. I decided to order a ... read more

Thirsty Fellows don’t Drink Flat Beer!
We really liked the interior of this restaurant in the Vista District of Columbia. It has a great warm vibe and our server, Ashlen, was wonderful, efficient and friendly. Unfortunately that’s not enough to bring me back… the food also has to be good. My husband ordered a draft beer which was completely flat so we were off to a bad st ... read more

Service was very slow. We had a dog with us and they easily accommodated us with our pup.

Very busy, but we got our food quickly once we got our table. Burger was good, but the sweet potato fries were disappointing, especially since I paid $2 extra for them. I would recommend the house chips over sweet potato fries.

Nice covered patio and good food
They have a nice covered area outside and it was a nice day, so we chose to eat outside. The service was good and timely. I had thought to get a small pizza, but they told me it was large enough to share (and I didn't want leftovers) so I chose the prosciutto and mozzarella sandwich instead. It was a great decision on my part because ... read more

We were heading to USC to see the awesome Girl's Volleyball team take on Clemson and stopped here for lunch. We started with the Bruschetta appetizer which is served as a mound of tomato-garlic goodness surrounded with baguette slices. Very garlicky. I then had the pear salad which came with a delicious lemon vinaigrette but was spar ... read more

We were looking for a lunch spot that was open on a Sunday (harder to find in this area), not a huge wait, and something not a chain. This one hit every one of those and more. Brunch menu! We were expecting pizza, so the brunch menu was an awesome surprise. Our party of six was seated quickly, and relatively quick service times. 5 o ... read more

Food was ok. The chicken strips were delicious. If you like skinny fries they had some good ones. The grilled chicken sandwich was hard to chew maybe because it was fresh chicken with little flavor not sure. My fiancé and his daughter got burgers. They were not impressed with them. Salad was fresh and plentiful. Service was pretty go ... read more

Our go to place while in Columbia. The pizza is our favorite. The beer is always super cold. The staff and service is top notch.
Frank Davis via - Aug 17, 2021
The food was awesome as usual but tonight the service was truly lacking. I'm sure they are under staffed but a simple cheese pizza and a flash fried shrimp took over an hour after we were seated. Also, the entire table had empty glasses while the table next to us were refilled twice in the same time frame. Will I be back, absolute ... read more

No wait. There was only a hightop available. The hostess gave her chair with a back to my daughter to sit in. Very sweet! Pickles are very pickley, salty, and spicy. Good. Duck wings were tender and good. They were a bit greasy though. It is build your own pizza. We picked medium red pie, half pepperoni and cheese and the other ha ... read more

Good bar food. The service gives you plenty of time to drink a beer or two.

Excellent food and service. Employees very cordial and welcoming. This night it took a little longer to get our food, but worth the wait.

Lunch specials for 2 with salads and pizza are a good deal and worth it. Fish and chips are good, as is the grilled chicken sandwich.

We were driving past Columbia and decided to give it a try. We were lucky we found a parking spot and got a table right away because it got busy. Even the patio on a rather warm day was pretty full with some dogs as well, yay dogs. Our food was delayed coming out of the kitchen, waiting over 20 minutes for our appetizer of two pret ... read more

We got menus and our drink orders, and then waited almost 20 minutes to place our order. It was fine, we werent in a rush. We got our appetizer. And half our food came out so ... read more

Server really put in the extra effort, but this full bar couldn't mix a Sazerac. Food was good, but not great.
James Barton via - Jul 6, 2021
First time here and it was a good place to eat a pizza. It was cooked in a brick stone oven which is always good. I also had a few beers on draft and were a little to warm for me, they could be a little colder. Overall good place to eat and drink with your friends.

Food was great! My son loved the pizza. I liked the salad I ordered. The kitchen forgot about the entire order, except the pizza, so I had to rush to finish in a timely manner. When I say forgot, it was when the server came to collect the empty pan that he noticed we were missing the rest of the items.

Good food, Good views and an amazing cheesesteak!! You should try the duck wings if you really want a treat! And you can’t go wrong with any of the pizzas! A must visit if you are looking for a hidden gem in Columbia SC!

We had a wonderful time!! We sat on the porch and enjoyed the lovely day. It only got a bit warm toward the end. Excellent food. Awesome service. And great prices!! Will surely be going back!!

Went for the first time. We had the pretzel for the appetizer and it was so good. It was very soft not stale and the cheese was good. We had ordered a pizza with a couple toppings it was very good.

How I've been here my whole life and never eaten here is a shame, but now I know and knowing is half the battle.

Then I moved on to a massive omelet that is basically built to order, which comes with grits or delicious hashbrowns. It ... read more

Thirsty Fellow’s pizza is amazing! They have lots of fun ingredients to put on your pizza, which makes it better than most pizza places around. They have a great deal that is 2 salads and a small pizza for $14, which is a great deal. Their small pizza is definitely enough for two people to split. They also have a great selection of b ... read more
