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.

“Wandered until we found Sticky Fingers”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Being newbies to Charleston, we knew that the city has great food, but on a Sunday night, we were unsure where to get some! We ventured out from our hotel and just kept walking, checking out the menus posted outside most of the restaurants.

Many of the restaurants were too fancy for our casual attire, or far too expensive for our quick late-night appetites. On top of that, my husband just couldn't nail down what type of food he was hungry for, so we just kept walking! We came upon Sticky Fingers, and one quick look through the window told us we had arrived.

We were seated immediately and while this is part tavern, part restaurant, we were happy with our choice. My husband ordered chicken wings and I had a pulled pork sandwich. The food was good, the service was great, and we left with happy bellies.

This place isn't anything fancy, but it was exactly what we were looking for...comfortable surroundings, tasty and hearty food, warm service.

“Wings soar”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Second visit to Sticky Fingers and was even better second time. We both had wings that were so tasty and finger licking good! My wife had the sweet potato casserole that was wonderful. For me the unexpected surprise was the bread pudding with vanilla ice cream and carmel drizzle. The serving was big enough for a meal unto it's self. Pricing value is perfect, as example bread pudding was $4.50. Service was friendly, informative and non obtrusive. Sticky Fingers will be a must for us each and every time we visit Charleston

“Great Location, Very Good BBQ”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We stopped into Sticky Fingers for a drink and an appetizer, we stayed for dinner. We ordered the chicken wings as an appetizer, the dry Memphis rub. They were outstanding. They offer a two piece or three piece selections, both very reasonably priced. I ordered the Beef Brisket, Turkey Breast, and Sausage; the sides were Mac & Cheese, Baked Beans. My wife ordered the Catfish and Rib combo; her sides were Sweet Potato Casserole, Cole Slaw. Our meals were very good. Definitely try the banana pudding. The restaurant has many historic details. We sat at the bar the bartender was great he turned us on to the wings. Sticky Fingers is a must on our next visit to Charleston.

“Nice stop out of the cold”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

I have been to Sticky Fingers in Chattanooga so knew what to expect. Decent food, great service and a hostess who is clueless----table next to us spilled a drink and she was frozen while manager jumped into action-they were next to each other. <g>

“Save room for the banana pudding!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I loved this restaurant! The ribs really were finger lickin' good. My sister had the fried seafood and really enjoyed it. The food was reasonably priced. Our server, Josh, was friendly and a wealth of information. Best of all was the banana pudding. I will definitely be back to Sticky Fingers!!!
