We once again enjoyed our visit and meal today. Service and food were great! We had to take some home because we could not eat it all! Thanks for the free fried corn for checking in. We were sorry to have to wait so long for a table and for our food to be served. It was well worth it... More

I've lived in the greater Miami area for 30+ years. I've had barbecue and had been to a couple of barbecue places. I've even been to Texas and had barbecue over there. And then I came to Shiver's. Wow. If I'd have known before Shiver's existed, I probably would have saved myself a trip to Texas. Amazing doesn't even begin... More

We'll put together menu, my meal-smoked brisket and BBQ chicken w/BBQ baked beans & green beans. Other, smoked burnt ends w/BBQ baked beans and cheesy hash browns. Started with roasted corn on the cob. Meal was perfection.

Visiting The Coral Castle and the Winery we heard about Shiver's. Great location and ambiance. Very old school and perfect for no fuss BBQ! Ribs, Pork, Brisket and sides were all amazing!! Peach cobbler very good too. The hospitality here is great! Servers are genuine honest and compassionate a different experience from eating on South Beach! Will I Go Back?... More

I planned to break my trip from Orlando to Key Largo at Shivers for lunch, based on the reviews. The car park was full at 2:30 pm and there were a lot of people sitting outside, so I feared the worst. Fortunately, they were wainting for take-out orders. I went in and was quickly seated, given a menu and my... More

Had to wait for a table, lots of others waiting too! Picnic benches for everyone! The food is great! The ribs are the best and the portions are good. We also had the meat platter with 2 meats. Definitely would go back!

We went to Shiver's for lunch and had to wait for a table. We were not disappointed. The food was outstanding and the service was great.

I used to go there once a month when I worked. Was passing and thought I would try it again. Nothing has changed. Good BBQ and hush puppies are very good (never had that when I used to there years ago). Brings back good memories.

Thank L C
