Sticky Fingers - Historic Charleston
We offer a nice comfortable, casual atmosphere, a great bar with a wide selection of local and craft beverages plus a variety of food options including grilled burgers and healthy salads. All of our meats are smoked on-site with real hickory wood to provide incredible flavor and an authentic southern barbecue experience. We also have awesome appetizers such as our award-winning hickory-smoked wings and the world famous onion loaf. We also offer a “cool kids” menu so have something special for everyone in your group.
And speaking of groups, we love them of all sizes! Please call us directly for parties of ten or more so that we can be sure to accommodate your party.

The biggest problem was that Open table didn't tell Sticky Fingerz about the reservation so they weren't expecting us
Don't go, food was severly overcooked. Could not tell meat form bones on the wings. Ribs were dry. On a good note the pulled pork was good and there was a huge selection of barbeque sauces. Wait staff was good.
Great Family place. We ordered the "rub" ribs as our daughter doesnt like the sauce, and some of the ribs seemed overcooked. But all and all I enjoyed the flavor and the other fixings.
Fun place, easy to get in and out and great service.
Understaffed and slow service but food was good
When we arrived for our reservation, the very nice hostess informed us that they were no longer a participant with Open Table. Thankfully there were tables available. I think it would be a plus for Open Table to keep current on the participation of its restaurants.
First time I went to a rib joint that ran out of ribs before I got there at 7 pm- that's like Macdonalds running out of hamburgers- ridiculous- never going back- there's several other places in town which I assume would have what they advertise
All was good with the exception of the wine...but when a complaint was made, they took 1/2 the price of the wine off the bill. Will return as food is good.
There was no music for some reason. The food came out really quickly but it wasn't anything special.
THE BAR B QUE WAS VERY GOOD. WE TRIED THE SAMPLER OF 4 DIFFERENT TYPES OF SAUCES. IT WAS A FULL RACK OF RIBS AND WAS MORE THAN MY WIFE AND I COULD EAT. TRIED THEIR JALAPENO COLESLAW. I THINK THEY FORGOT THE JALAPENO - IT WAS JUST REGULAR COLESLAW.
We received our food quickly. The portions were large enough for two. We shared a two combination entree. The waitress was friendly and brought our check immediately after the food. That was the last to we saw her. The ribs were only ok. We waited about 30 min for her to return and get our money because we needed change in order to leave an adequate tip. I believe in tipping the servers at least 20% unless the service was horrible. She never returned so she got very little tip since we had no small bills .
We were celebrating our birthdays while visiting Charleston. The ribs and brisket were delicious as was the sweet potatoe soufflé. We topped off our evening with peach cobbler with ice cream on top - a delicious Southern delight.
Great place for a casual meal. Our waiter struggled, but the restaurant's other staff and manager stepped in.
This was my family's second time dining at Sticky Fingers. The meal was just as good as we remembered. The ribs, pulled pork, and pulled chicken were cooked to perfection and the barbecue sauces were wonderful. Shout out to our server Austin Rae...she shines. We loved the photographer service, it was a nice surprise. We have a great family picture and memories of a delicious meal. If you are visiting Charleston don't miss out on this dining experience. We will certainly be back!
Hostess was terrible. No greeting and kind of rude. Our server was great and quite honestly kept us from leaving. Melanie was her name.
Seated with no wait. Seemed under staffed as drinks took a long time, keg ran out and I was told I would get the rest of my beer when it was changed but it took so long I said forget it, waitress who
Delivered food said they were out of small plates but they were being washed, and I saw a couple never get acknowledged so they left. Ribs were good...but service was just lousy. Would not go back .
On initial service the food was cold . We asked the server to have the food re heated however on its return the food was partially warm. The food itself was good quality and the server was very pleasant and helpful.
Tanya and I were on vacation from Detroit,MI. and Dallas , TX. Saw the commericial on the hotel TV, thought we would try it out. Had our picture taken too. Had a great time!!!:-)
Ribs were great. Service was great. Dessert size was skimpy and yucky (pecan pie).
Made reservations on Open Table for Sunday night at 8PM. Arrived early. Sat at the bar and enjoyed a $3 House Bloody Mary / special. Seated promptly @ 8 at one of the high top tables in the back. The manager, Hannah, made sure we had menus and let us know our server, Tameka would be right over. I ordered ribs @$15. Serving was generous for 1\2 rack. My husband chose a combo - ribs and pulled pork. Both meals come with coleslaw and baked beans. I substituted fries; hubby chose macaroni instead.
We weren't sure which BBQ sauce to try so Tameka recommended a dry rub which would allow us to sample from a variety of bottled sauces at the table. This worked out great. By the time we were thru, my favorite sauce was Memphis; husband preferred sweet. The pulled pork and Mac & Cheese were good. The ribs were great!! Advertised @ "fall off the bone" - they fully deliver on that promise!! The ribs were crispy on the outside, moist and delicious on the inside. Perhaps the best I've ever had.
After dinner the assistant manager, Tim stopped by to see if we enjoyed our dinner. He advised that Sticky Fingers is catering the 4th of July celebration where we have tickets on the Yorktown. He will be bar tending and we look forward to seeing him there!
We highly recommend Sticky Fingers. Prices were reasonable, food was great, service was outstanding!!
Bathrooms are not clean. In fact they were disgusting. Sorry but true.
Ribs were dry and over cooked. Waitress pulled multiple jobs and did a great job but restuarant appeared to be under staffed.
Really poor service. Server could not get our order correct even after 3 try's. Additionally it took a very long time to get reviles on our drinks.
