    The walnut and brown sugar-encrusted bacon and the slow-smoked duck breast with cherry juniper jam showcase the decadent Southern inspired menu. Read more

    Jalepeno cream corn is the best side there. Always go for the duck plate.

    You must try the pulled rib meat layered over hand-cut fries that just so happen to be smothered in cheese sauce made in-house.

    Riverfront Times · September 17, 2013

    Get the covered fries and the meat sampler.

    Order the sampler if its your first time. Oh, and show up early! Very crowded even on week nights.

    No duck at lunch, but meatloaf sandwich was tasty. Brisket doesn't have much flavor before you add sauce (which is good), but it's nice & juicy, not all dried out like smoe places.

    Amazing food! I recommend the smothered fries, brisket sandwich, and you have to get the gooey butter cake topped brownie!

    Fries Taste Test: The porky meat on Shaved Duck's smothered fries is excellent — but the flavor of the actual fries got lost in all the other stuff. Also: They coulda and shoulda been a lot hotter. Read more
