Description: Smokehouse and Gathering Place bbq, folk & soul. Every morning, before the sun comes up, our pitmasters are busy firing up the smoker to serve you the freshest, tastiest meats. We smoke our ribs all day to ensure you get them straight off the pit. We believe in buying locally. Our menu is smoked in Ole Hickory Pits, built in Saint Genevieve, and smoked with a combination of wild cherry and hickory sourced from Terry, "the woodman", from Perryville, Missouri. The cherry gives a subtle sweetness and gorgeous color to the meat, balanced with a touch of hickory for that rounded, uniquely smoky finish. We take inspiration from across the United States, but like to dance to the beat of our own drum, infusing different smoking techniques from X, Y and Z. Our focus is, and always will be, rustic American cuisine. Our kitchen cooks from scratch. Try our legendary Burnt Ends, a smoking recipe developed by Corey, Pitmaster of Grillas Team and winner of KC Royal 2003. Our Tri-Tip Steak is an Argentinian technique, simply marinated and rubbed with salt, pepper, rosemary & garlic. Our ribs are smoky, sweet and sticky. Our chicken is smoked whole and pulled for every sandwich. We make our own bacon resulting in our famous Walnut Bacon appetizer. The list goes on … in short, we cut no corners and we love what we do: good folk, fresh bbq and honest, soulful food. We look forward to welcoming you. Sincerely and Cheers, Ally Nisbet Owner

If you like Brisket you've got to try the Burnt Ends and the BOSS Sandwich.....the bomb. They have delicious side choices also.

While in St. Louis for a ballgame, we saw on the Food Chanel a review for The Shaved Duck. We looked it up and found it was only about 8 miles from downtown St. Louis. What a hidden treasure! You can smell the smoker as you arrive in the middle of a quiet older neighborhod. The smothered fries, ribs, pulled pork were our favorites. Great sauces as well. worth the adventure.

Quite a wait...45 minutes but it could've been much longer. The smoked meatloaf was awesome. I tried a friend's side of mashed potatoes. They were awesome!!!

Stopped in for lunch, trying the Duck on flat bread. Interesting presentation, pre-cut delivered on a platter. Good taste, needs more duck, less cheese. Portions are just right, unless you're a glutton.

Waitress is very nice, brought some water for my dogs while we have lunch outside.

Neighborhood may appear shady to some, bit folks are friendly none the less. Add in the guy on the bike begging for $0.50, and a few car stereos bumping as they drive by, and it's all good.

My husband and I went to The Shaved Duck on a Saturday night at 7 pm. When we checked in, the host told us it would be an hour. It was a beautiful night, so we didn't mind. We sat at the bar and were impressed by the 4 on tap beer selections. It turned out to only be a half hour wait, so we were thrilled. I ordered the tri tip sandwich and it was SO good. My husband was a little disappointed that it didn't have more meat, but it filled me up! I ordered the potato of the day, but the waiter brought the mac and cheese. So, I ended up with both! The mac and cheese was so cheesy and really good. It was a great experience!
