“Great Place to Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Stopped by the Shaved Duck when visiting St. Louis on business and now it's a permanent on my places to eat in St. Louis. I'm not a kid but my favorite is the Mac 'n' Cheese so much so that I took a side back to the hotel. The rest of the meal was fantastic and the service was top notch.

“Good Food and Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The wait was long, the crowd was dense, and the food was decadent. If you're looking for low-fat or low- sodium food, try somewhere else. The menu items -- like cheese-smothered fries -- aren' t healthy but they sure are good! The chili sampler -- for kinds of chili -- was fun to try, and the beef brisket was good but not great. Overall, it's a fun place to go.

“Meat, meat and more meat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

So wish we lived near St. Louis so we could come here more often! We went on a Saturday night and it was PACKED! Waited about 50 minutes for a table but were treated well while we waited at the bar. Dinner for my husband was Jimmy's sampler which was every meat they had on the menu-all smoked but still juicy and tender. Three sauce options on the table. Leftovers will feed us for two more meals. I had the meatloaf which came with a very tasty root beer glaze. Jalapeño cream corn was delicious with full kernels of corn...no mush. Mashed potatoes were a little off. And definitely get the smothered fries. Enough for three.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

Came back home for a visit with family and friends. A friend suggested this place. The service is great. The employees at courteous, attentive, professional. The food was ok but certainly not the best BBQ I've had. Tried some other dishes like the shrimp&grits, loaded fries and they wed tasty. Overall not a bad dining experience. I would recommend giving it a try.
