Our table shared most of the menu and best BBQ I've had. Brown sugar bacon is to die for. Can't say enough great things about this place! Can't wait to go back.

Chose the Shaved Duck for my 40th Birthday dinner with my better half and two other couples. This was our second time here; the first for the other two couples. We ordered smothered fries ($9.99) and smoked chicken wings ($5.50) as appetizers and they were amazing!!! For dinner we ordered the 3 meat plate ($18.99) and chose the chicken; burnt... More

Was told the burnt ends were very good. While the flavor, portions and service were terrific, I found the BBQ not to be as tender as I would like. While I was a bit disappointed in what I ordered, other dishes my friends had looked delicious- I might give it another try next time in town. Space is limited. I... More

Fantastic. Even the two vegetarians in the family enjoyed it (they ordered a Caesar salad, vegetarian wedges, and the vegetarian/mozzarella sandwich). Of course, the star was the meat. They have a texting service so you can get your name in and leave. (We found that useful, as it allowed us leave to check into the hotel and then return.)

We enjoyed this meal. Very tasty food. Meat could have been a little warmer though. BBQ sauces are all delicious. The brussel sprouts were incredible. Neighborhood gem for sure. Limited seating so it can easily get crowded and have a wait. Go early or be patient. :-) If you're on a schedule say so because it's a laid back &... More

Great restaurant with a large supply of beers. We had plate with pulled pork and brisket. Both well smoked and tasty. In this day of huge portion sizes in restaurants these portions seemed a little small. But since we were eating and drinking our way through St Louis it was probably in our best interest. Server may have been a... More

Just because a place is busy it shouldn't leave a person feeling like he had been to a rock concert. Always an issue here, the acoustics need help. Shouting and not being able to hear is not how most people want to have a meal. The drinkers crowded into the dining area don't help, and every time we've been there... More

The Shaved Duck has a distinct Soulard feel to it: diverse clientele, low lighting, and a bit too loud. That being said, there's no denying the underlying "cool" vibes, highlighted by live music, wood floors, and the amiable waiter we had. The menu prices are very affordable for the quality of food and atmosphere. The Gumbo is hearty and spicy.... More

I had dinner here with a friend. The food was good as well as the service. It'w a small place but I liked the atmosphere. It was a little loud with the musician playing, but the further away from the musician you got (who was playing in the bar area) the less you heard him playing. Outdoor seating was also... More
