After a long day of traveling er went to Shiver's based on reviews. Hubby and I shared the Rib/Pulled pork platter plus a dinner salad. Salad was basic, but cold, crisp lettuce and a good blue cheese dressing. Ribs and pork were delicious. Bother we're tender and moist. Had corn bread pudding - delicious, but sweet enough to be dessert.... More

Meal was pre cooked, cold and really wasn't anything as I had heard. People around us including servers looked at us like we were from outer space! Service was slow and bad.

Mp, I'm really sorry about your experience. I'm not sure what you mean when you say the food was precooked. All of our meats are cooked fresh daily in our smoker and finished on the grill. We hope you will give us another shot. More

I've eaten here twice,and my order looked like every thing was just thrown on the plate,the bar-b-que meat was on top of my fries. The fries were cold, both mine and my wife's. Had to send them back and they brought new fries,the meal was fair.I'v eaten better bar-b-que.

The best sides are here... 5 stars to the CORN BREAD SOUFFLE! That was my favorite, unforgettable!♡ Excellent cole slaw, sweet potato souffle with cinnamon and brown sugar... The ribs are great, they have a lot of meat, very juicy and tender, you don't need a knife to cut it, they are extremely soft. SOOOOooo yummy

We are locals and have eaten here over 10 times in the last year, each visit is a different experience. Sometimes the food is great and staff is pleasant and attentive- sometimes food is cold and staff was very helpful- another time food was great staff wasn't very attentive...Also go early as it has limited bench seating... so I guess...

Showed up at opening for the day and got to experience a fantastic meal. The brisket was so good, after my meal, I went into the kitchen to applaud the cooks. Had a great time and a great meal. Definitely, the best BBQ in South Florida. With no apologies.

Went there recently with friends. The food was very good, an excellent selection of sides and our waitress, Tabatha, was one of the best waitresses I've ever had anywhere.
