We love eating at Thirsty's. Food is delicious and service is excellent. Thirsty's has become our pregame ritual. A number of the servers know our drink orders by heart and will have them at our table shortly after we sit down. Sunday Brunch menu is phenomenal!!

Great Food, Poor Choice of Who Was Running Things
Great food, very nice atmosphere! We did go on a very busy Saturday evening, so we expected to wait, but. . . The young ladies running the wait list were v-e-r-y slow at cleaning tables and getting people seated. There were 3 large tables empty, but not cleared and 2 small tables, while a bunch of us waited. The ladies were walking i... read more

Went here before the WBB game. This was our first visit to this establishment. Really tasty food. Our group had the pizza, philly cheese steaks, and wings. All were very good.

Quick meal
We stopped in hoping to get a few drinks and a quick meal. Turned out that we waited an hour for a table and another hour for chicken fingers. Place had great food but service was awful.

Came here before a concert and asked what the wait time would be. The hostess responded two hours and I just had to laugh at her. We opted to stand by the bar to see if seats would open up. It didn't look like we were going to get a seat so we just ordered food and were going to stand and eat. I went with the philly cheese steak and ... read more

I had business in Columbia on Valentine's day, so I decided to take my daughter who's in college there to supper before heading home. Thirsty Fellow had been on my to do list for a while, so this was a perfect opportunity. Great food, great service, great atmosphere, great menu. We shared the gorgonzola chips app, incredible.

Great Place for Brunch, Lunch or a Beverage and Snack
Great atmosphere and you can always count on good food and beverages. Favorite location is out on the large outdoor porch area. TV's throughout to follow the sporting events of the day. Staff has always been really friendly.

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.

Thirsty you will never be here, with tons of alcoholic options and religious water refills this place is great on the drinking front!

I've been 3 times in the last couple weeks and the service has been outstanding every time!

This has to be my favorite place in Columbia to have a drink and eat. Their brunch is great, so are their pizza and other menu items. I have my favorite table and favorite waitress and Cam makes sure both are ready for me when he knows I am headed his way! I hope you can't get there any time soon: it's crowded enough!! LOL.

I love that thing they do! I still think this place has the best pimento burger in Columbia. They offer chips, fries, or sweet potato fries as a side, and they're all so friggin good!

Long wait
Good bar type menu, but I'm not sure it is worth the wait. I had the pizza and it was good, but a little burned. Others I was with had the burger ( looked great) and wings. Both said they were good. I would have given this a 4 rating if it wasn't for the long wait time.
