Picnic bench bbq

Seating is at picnic benches at this casual BBQ. We went there on a Monday at 7 pm and had a long wait. When mentioning the hour wait, the cashier offered no compensation. Others came after we were seated and they were served and left before we got our food. The food was good - especially the... read more

Was tooling around the Homestead / Redlands area on a recent Sunday afternoon. Had heard about this place so wanted to give it a try for a late lunch. There were a few people waiting outside, but the hostess assured us that the wait would only be a few minutes. To make a long story short, a few minutes turned... More

Dear Sir or Madam: We can definitely appreciate your frustration on your first visit but I feel that your review is an unfair assumption of our practices. Rest assured, we would never take preference on seating due to whether or not you were a regular or local. Our hostess, who is relatively new, would not even know who was from... More

We went out of our way to go to one of the "top 10" BBQ restaurants in Miami and are glad we did. The baby backs and beef ribs were great. The kids liked the cornbread and the cornbread souffle. We liked the atmosphere and tasty smells and the staff was very welcoming. We ate around 5:15 pm though so... More

We stopped here for lunch on a weekday and were not disappointed. Seating is on benches at tables abutted one to another. They had a good crowd but we had no problem finding a place to sit. The menu is extensive with lots of starters, BBQ entrees and desserts. My wife had the 1/4 BBQ chicken with sides of corn... More

My husband and I took Trip Advisor's reviewers advice and went to Shiver's. We both loved the atmosphere (you sit on long picnic tables) of the restaurant and the staff was super friendly. I ordered 1/2 baby back ribs with 1/4 chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy with green beans. My husband got the pulled pork with green beans and sweet... More

we went to this restaurant to enjoy some BBQ ribs in the typical american style and got definitely no disappointment. the place is surely not elegant and a little rough, but gives exactly the atmosphere you look for from a place like this. big wooden tables and tons of meat. the quality if very good and the price fair. with...

A very delicious BBQ restaurant. A unique environment with picnic style seating creates a warm, welcoming ambienance. Friendly staff, although sometimes over extended, does a fine job of serving up some sweet tea & Bbq sandwiches. The pricing was very reasonable. I especially favor the bbq beans. Yummy!

Great bbq and service. Our family goes there at least once a month. For appetizers, the squealing pig is a potato skin with pulled pork, cheese and jalapeños if you want. The baby back ribs are always consitent in taste and fall off the bone.

The food is amazing. Both my husband and I had the ribs, meaty and fall off the bone tender. In one word DELICIOUS. As sides, I chose the Jalapeno Cheese Grits (again wonderful and not too spicy) and the Corn Souffle (delicious). The platter also came with garlic bread, which I didn't eat, since garlic is a problem for me.... More

We visited Shiver's twice during our recent trip to Florida. Both times at lunch and we were quite pleased with our visits. BBQ pulled pork platter is served with two sides, garlic bread and a massive scoop of pork. The pork was perfect. It had excellent flavor and wasn't at all dry. I chose the hash brown casserole and green... More
