This place looks like something in the hills of Tennessee - rustic wood exterior and interior, complete with metal farm equipment signs. Seating is communal - long tables and benches. The food was quite good - I ordered the beef brisket platter - regular size - with a side of green beans and hush puppies. There are four different types... More

Very pleasant staff, family style seating, well worth your dollar! Not much else to say. I enjoyed their pork ribs & pulled pork. They had a few sauces to choose from table side.

Been eating here for years and they have had their ups & downs but the dish I had the other night was by far the best I have ever had there. The Chicken & Rib combo plate was fantastic! The chicken had just the right crispiness to the outside skin that held in the moisture making even the white meat... More

We were traveling from the Everglades to the Keys and were about to stop at a Subway. Instead we looked up this place on TripAdvisor and were we glad! We had the brisket (small portion) and 1/4 chicken. Huge portions and great sides (though I found the cheesy jalapeño grits too salty for me). Other sides we had were black... More

I visited during the week and had lunch with my kids. The fried mac and cheese was a delicious appetizer that we all enjoyed. They serve their bbq with different sauces which were all good to me. I especially liked the. Mustard base bbq sauce. I think their prices were reasonable and the service was fast. It's important when traveling... More

Stopped for dinner on 12/28/2014 based on reviews from trip advisors and we were not dissapointed. Bar b q fries were to die for as well as the chocolate carmel pie.

You have got to try this place out.... they have got the best bbq food in town! Their ribs are fall off the bone delicious, their corn bread soufflé is just heavenly, and their baked beans are just sooo yummy! If we weren't careful with our diet, we'd eat there everyday! Not a rib fan, try the brisket beef sandwich...or... More

When we are abroad we never eat Italian, but always try to live and eat like locals do. As we entered the parking we realized we did the right choice. Wonderful picturesque bulding. As we entered we were greeted by a very nice waitress who call us a few minutes later once they had 2 seats for us. Inside the... More

The food is outstanding but the to go orders are very very slow. This time around I placed the order the day before and one hour after it was suppose to be ready, I was still waiting. Not acceptable. Last time I waited for a large to go order was 1.5 hours but I thought it was just a one... More

It has survived hurricanes more than once, but I wonder if it is losing it's touch. My wife and I have eaten at Shiver's almost 50 years, whenever we were in south Florida and have sung it's praises for most of that time. However, this year, while in the area for the NASCAR race, the quality of the food was... More
