Willie Durkin has been in the food and beverage industry all of his life. He owned Shannon's, Sneakers and Durkin's before deciding to broaden his horizons and open a restaurant. Willie is a Columbia resident (active in the Downtown Neighborhood Association), a USC graduate and husband of Patti Durkin.
Chuck Belcher has also served his time behind the bar. He was a bartender at the Twilight (we know you remember that hot spot), Rockafellas and most recently Durkin's. After a long career at Boozer Lumber, Chuck is now full time in the restaurant business.
Terry Davis is the only partner without food and beverage experience (although she did work at Burger King while in college.) Terry worked at USC for most of her career, retiring as Director of Admissions in 2004.
The partners are in agreement that all the food served should be fresh and made in house. As with the pizza, we strive for perfection in every plate of food we prepare. From bruschetta to Asian pear salad, from daily soups to homemade tiramisu, we're sure to have something to satisfy your palate.
Choose from 13 draught beers, over 40 beers in bottles, more than a dozen wines and a full bar. view list
We're open until 2:00 am.
Join us for Motown Mondays, Trivia Wednesdays, and happy hour every night from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm. Thirsty Fellow is a great place to meet your friends after work or on the weekends.
