About
Sticky Fingers Ribhouse has been smokin’ up the BBQ scene in the Southeast for the past 25 years. We’re known for our authentic Memphis-style slow-smoked ribs, no-sauce-needed hickory-smoked wings and mouthwatering barbecue pork & chicken. With classic sides to complement our meats plus a full bar and homemade desserts, you’ll soon understand why we’ve become Legendary. We currently have 12 restaurant locations in the Carolinas, Tennessee and Florida. The sweet smell of hickory wood that welcomes you upon arrival is a sure sign that all our smoked meats are still slow cooked on-site in our barbecue pits. It is that same commitment to tradition and authenticity that makes our restaurants and

A victim of Covid-19. They tried pick up, but that did not last. This location as well as Myrtle Beach are closed for good. Shame, it's close to us and on occasion picked up some ribs and slaw. Pretty decent. I hear the Charleston location...will re-open.More

A must go to restaurant if you are in Myrtle Beach, SC. The barbecue ribs are delicious and the service is excellent. This is our second time and we loved it.

If you are ever in North Myrtle Beach, SC, "Sticky Fingers" is a must-go restaurant. If you love ribs and barbecue, this is "the" place to be! I love barbecued beef and it is difficult to find on the Atlantic coast. I called the N....Myrtle Beach Sticky Fingers a week in advance, asked for the kitchen supervisor and was switched to Sherrie. I made a special request. Although bbq beef wasn't on the menu, Sherrie promised to have it ready at the appointed date and time. She came through like gangbusters!! When we arrived, the manager welcomed us by name and ushered us to a table. In a few minutes, Sherrie was serving us personally with the most succulent beef ribs you could imagine! Absolutely perfect! The serving size was really big, the service excellent and the price most reasonable! If you go to the N. Myrtle Beach Sticky Fingers, you cannot go wrong. I will see them next time we are in the area!More

First visit. We were greeted and seated promply. Service buy waitress was good and helpfull. I had beef brisket sandwich choice of fries or house made chips, very good and proper amount of beef. Wife had smoked turkey platter with choice of two sides, she...chose greens & baked beans. Said it was very good. Nice clean resturant inside and out. We felt it was a good value for the cost and enjoyed the meal.More

We were fortunate the north myrtle location was open in January and also did a small buffet for $12.95pp. While no ribs, the chicken and pulled pork was great with 4 BBQ suaces to choose from, and included rolls, sides and a dessert. Service was...great too. We'll be going back again.More

We thoroughly enjoyed the pork BBQ and the vegetable sides -- fried corn on the cob was delicious, collards were mild and fresh, broccoli was beautiful green and fresh steamed, sweet potato casserole was special. The whole meal was tasty. The restaurant general manager, Cory,...came over twice to check on us and make sure everything was satisfactory. We considered the dinner more than satisfactory. The only thing that was less than extraordinary was the banana pudding dessert -- we love good southern banana pudding dessert. This one was served in a clever, unusual way (in a mason jar) but the dessert itself would rank simply as OK. The homemade peach cobbler is the better choice.More

My husband and I had a late lunch/early supper at Sticky Fingers. He chose the salad with smoked chicken. When it arrived it was huge, served in a stainless steel mixing bowl. He loved it. I chose the rack of ribs with original sauce and...had coleslaw and steamed broccoli for my sides. I knew I would not be able to eat the whole rack of ribs but decided it would be a great meal the next day. The ribs were falling off the bone delicious. Our server was great and the chef came out to chat and told us how the meats were cooked and the wood used. I asked how I should reheat the ribs I was taking home; he went to the back and brought out a foiled lined bag for reheating ribs with instructions printed on it. We had plenty for another meal for both of us and the bag was the answer to perfectly reheated ribs.More

Received a lunch with sliced brisket and corn on cob with cole slaw. Corn was very dried out and ice cold. Brisket was sliced and very tough with almost no flavor. There was only BBQ sauce on top slice. Only are 2 slices and dogs...got the rest. Cole slaw was good but had a strange ingredient. I was very disappointed in this place. I don't think they will get any of my business in the futureMore

Very clean and reasonably priced. The good was excellent and the different BBQ sauces were also very tasty. We had the ribs, pulled pork, chicken wings, coleslaw, baked beans, potato salad and french fries. Our waitress was also very friendly and sweet. I would highly...recommend this restaurant for adults and families.More
