Established in 2017, The Shaved Duck Restaurant is the fulfillment of a life-long dream of Owner and General Manager, Joe Kmetz to open a family business. The Shaved Duck Restaurant name was solidified with a little inspiration from swigs of whiskey and acknowledgment to the memory of his grandparent’s love of ducks. Joe’s grandfather was an avid collector of duck memorabilia but what stood out the most was the carved (shaved) ducks. Joe, a 2005 graduate of Midlothian High School, has thrived in the restaurant industry since a young age, with experience in a multitude of roles not only in the kitchen but also providing patrons’ with a top-notch dining experience.

They hope you will come join them for some fine food and drink and make them a regular stop for your restaurant experiences.
