About Thirsty Fellow

Thirsty Fellow Pizzeria and Pub is the brainchild of Willie Durkin, known for his previous establishments: Shannon's, Sneakers, and Durkin's.  Willie went in search of the perfect pie and found it in Charlotte.  Peter Reinhart, the author of American Pie, a faculty member at Johnson and Wales, and past owner of Pie Town, makes the pizza that Willie had been looking for.  

Willie successfully completed a pizza course at Johnson and Wales and brought this perfect pizza to Columbia.

Owners Willie Durkin, Cam Shealy, and Kelli Hartzog want you to join the Thirsty Fellow family.   Located in the USC Innovista area, we have a comfortable atmosphere, a great menu, a full bar, and plenty of televisions.  Open for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch - be sure to put Thirsty Fellow on your "to-do" list.
