Shaved Duck is situated on a corner into a mostly residential area. We parked on-street, directly in front of the restaurant. There is outside and inside seating. Inside seating is a mix of high-tops, booths and tables. The restaurant is small, divided by a bar. We arrived around 11:30am on a Wednesday and seating was not an issue. However, due... More

We just got back to Wisconsin from a quick spring break trip down to St. Louis with our school-age girls and am compelled to jot a quick review based on how good this establishment is. I'm a bbq aficionado and do quite a bit with... More

Enjoyed an impromptu dinner with a colleague. The wait was long (>hour) for a Monday night. We made due in the crowded bar with a nice glass of wine and beer from a friendly bartender. The seating is crowded together and hard to hear but we managed to get a better table when one came open. Our food came very... More

Kind of upscale BBQ... macaroni so damn good! The burnt ends omg everything is good. Brisket is awesome decor should probably be updated but overall great food. It's in a residential area so it gets crowded quick

They were out of a couple menu items we wanted as we weren't seated until 9pm. Two couples ordered four different things and they were all delicious so it worked out. Long wait but service at the bar and table was very good. Would be better to visit in the warmer months so you can wait outside and not be... More
