Description: 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 signature barbecue sauces so popular. Yes, the Sticky Fingers Barbecue Sauces you see in your grocery store … that’s us! Our five award-winning signature sauces – Memphis Original, Carolina Classic, Tennessee Whiskey, Carolina Sweet and Sweet Southern Heat – are served daily in our restaurants. Demand from Sticky Fingers fans led to the development of our retail line of sauces, which are now distributed in over 5,000 grocery stores and specialty shops across the country.

Sticky Fingers was a last minute decision because it was right across the street from our hotel and we didn't want to spend a ton of money. Great choice!
The decor is primarily brick and wood, giving it a true BBQ atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but very cozy, with a few televisions showing various sports. Plenty of beer both on tap and in bottles.
Our server was very friendly and recommended the ribs and pulled chicken. He even offered the choice of them "saucing the ribs in the back" or I could do it later with the four varieties on the table. I opted for the kitchen to do it and it offered a nice glazing on the sauce.
Sticky Fingers does thankfully offer smaller sized portions for lighter eaters. There were several salad and gluten free choices on the menu, too.
The service was quick and efficient.
For the price, I thought the meal was very good in taste, quality and value.
I would definitely eat here again!

I wanted to love this place, but it didnt happen :( It was totally empty except for one couple..not usually a good sign. Ribs were overcooked & dry, mac & cheese had little taste. Broccoli on baked potato was nearly raw & crunchy. Potato itself was undercooked. Bright spots were the sauces & our server, who was knowledgeable & quite friendly. Probably would not return,

Love Love Love this place. Chicken wings are excellent but the best part is the people. Bartender Melanie is super great! Excellent service and great advice on the menu as well as direction to other attractions in Charleston. The Manager was excellent also - gave a quick tour of the smoker to my husband - made his night! A high quality end to our night!

Ribs were edible. The membrane is left on the ribs and they were a little dry. Good friendly service.

Great food, great staff. We stopped in for a quick dinner and loved the pulled pork and sausage. We even got a great suggestion for breakfast the next morning.
