A great hangout spot near downtown but not right in the thick of it all. I love the option for outdoor seating in the warmer months. The signature Carolina Chicken Sandwich is my remarkable! I recommend pairing it with the homemade house chips - which are always so fresh! Great sweet potato fries (make sure you ask for them to warm t ... read more

The food was awesome, service was a bit slow; our waitress seemed to have tables all over the restaurant and was unable to keep all of her customers happy. They should have given her a set station and not tables outside as well as inside, we barely saw her three times our entire visit.

One of my favorite places to eat hands down. The warm bacon dressing is a must, and definitely check out the Philly. Honestly, I've never had a bad time a TF.

I didn't find this place to be anything special. The food was okay, as was the service. I'm still a bit peeved I was charged $1 for a side of ranch. Probably won't return unless I'm desperate.

The big thing about Thirsty Fellow is their consistency - which is missing in a lot of Columbia restaurants. You can basically eat the same thing in same quality & taste any time any day.For a pub, their pizzas & burgers are way above average. Their side salads and fries are pretty good. Beer selection is rich, and they have good spe ... read more

I was super thrilled to try the philly cheese steak here which was overall just OKAY. Kind of felt sick after,,but that could very well just been because I haven't had much red meat prior. Either way, cute beer selection and okay service at the table.

Food was superb. Inside was a bit loud: Next visit will try the outside seating. Service was a bit slow, but they were quite busy. Guinness came out MUCH TOO SOON. Pro tip: Anyone who orders a pint of Guinness expects to wait. Teach bartenders the two-part pour.

Heard a lot about this place and finally went, but I was very underwhelmed. The tofu barbecue sandwich was simply undercooked tofu smothered in bottled barbecue sauce. You can get waaay better food at the Whig, and without the wait. Decor was cute though!

Food was nice, nothing you can't​ get elsewhere. Very overpriced for what it is. Also a bit misleading to say "burger comes with side" but then charge extra for the side. Don't think I'll go back, but decent enough food if you dont mind paying $15 for a burger and fries (after tax). Service a bit "meh". Serving sizes are good.

Quickly becoming one of my favorite Columbia go-tos for a good casual meal and a decent draft selection.  Thirsty Fellow has a (small) parking lot, so it's already got a leg up.  Sure, it can be full of bros for game days, but usually it's tame, since it's not just a $1 PBR haven.  To be sure, Thirsty Fellow sells a lot of Fireball.H ... read more
