We swung through here on a Sunday afternoon from out of town. It was really good for a casual meal. We ordered a few things, and they were all good. The service was good as well.

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.

Great porch
The Thirsty Fellow is a great place to hang out. We went for a late lunch on the porch. The beer was good as were the wings. Their Philly cheesesteak exceptional.

Great late lunch/early dinner!
Had heard some good things about Thirsty Fellow and we decided to stop in late afternoon after an appointment downtown. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside on the deck. The food was great! My wife enjoyed a small pizza with ham & pineapple and I went for the French dip which was outstanding. The draft beers were cold and reasona ... read more

Food was great!
We came here for Professional Administrative Day. This place is very eccentric with the encyclopedias and romance novels and different books located in the walls. Reminds me of an rustic, vintage library. The atmosphere was very cozy and the food was so delicious. They offer a variety of foods including pizza lunch specials, but I ha ... read more

Great service, they even offer to go cups for your beverages, Italian hoagie was very tasty,  their pizza is Delicious,  the crust is thin and has a good chew. The small pie could feed 2 people  I highly recommend the pizza.

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.

We had a great time at Thirsty Fellow. Good food, good beer, great service. We tried their pizza special for 2. It comes with a small 2-topping pizza (8 slices) and 2 salads (either field green or Caesar). Plenty of food for 2. The salads were a nice size. I really enjoyed the Caesar.

Good Food
We came here on a Friday night at 5:30 and had to wait about 45 minutes. They have a lot of high tables but we were lucky enough to get a booth along the back wall where is was a little quieter.

Fabulous French Dip
Came here w/ best buddy during our two night stay in Columbia for Masters. Place is great. Roomy and airy ambience, background music not obtrusive, TVs perfectly spaced. As for the food we had wings and shrimp dip apps. Now for the highlight:....... I haven't had French Dip in forever since most places overlook their beef. Not here. ... read more

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

Great local pub easily accessible from the Colonial Life Arena and Carolina Baseball Stadium. It's close to the Greek village and they're almost always busy. Usually don't have to wait too long. Outdoor seating is nice. All the food is good with a decent draft beer selection that is well rounded by their bottled selection.
