On our way from Key West en route to Jacksonville, we decided to get some lunch. This place had awesome food! All the apps were great, and the beef brisket was on point! You won't be disappointed.

After our tour of Coral Castle, we were referred to Shiver's. Amazing food. I had pulled pork and brisket with corn casserole and sweet potato fries. Wonderful and sinful!! Our waitress was very nice and kind. Our experience was great.

Shiver's has the look and feel of a real BBQ joint, except the BBQ fails. 6 of us visited Shiver's after returning from fishing in Key Largo, and were excited to sample the BBQ that had been recommended by both TripAdvisor, and a close friend. All 6 of our party scratched our heads about why this restaurant has such great... More

Fred, We're so sorry to her that you didn't enjoy your meals. We have worked very hard (for over 60 years) to create great BBQ for our guests and community. I'm not sure what happened on the day you were here but we can only hope that you'll give us another shot next time you're in town. My sincerest apologies,... More

We had the baby back ribs and 3 sides, bbq beans, sweet potato fries, and cornbread souffle. And the salted caramel cheesecake. All were very good, particularly the cheesecake. It's a typical mom-and-pop type, locally-owned restaurant. Comfort food and plenty of Americana at its best. Long, picnic table style seating puts you right next to someone you don't know if...

Not the best place in town. Dislikes the way the restaurant was set up benches was our set and it was connected with other benches so people would sit next to us. Not great for a date night. Food was ok. We ordered the chicken pulled sandwich it was cold, I nor my spouse finished eating it. Other than that... More

This place is yummmmmmmy. This looks like a locals place and is family style with long tables and bench seating. Don't expect the Ritz but you can expect great food at a great price. Servers are friendly and the food is darn good. The beef was so tender it melted in your mouth and the baby back ribs fell off... More

Great food, good service. No individual tables though, everyone sits a "community" picnic tables. Just very good bbq for southern Florida. Would look forward to going there again. Very simple restaurant, with pretty darn good food.

If you're a connoisseur of pulled pork, you may be disappointed with Shriver's pulled pork sandwich, despite what other reviews say. I ordered here today for the first time, 11/16/2016. I requested a large pulled pork sandwich with lots of mild bbq sauce, cole slaw and hush puppies, all to go. Opening the container, my first thought was, "this doesn't... More
