Even Keel Fish Shack is a laidback seafood spot and raw bar highlighting exceptional seasonal ingredients, the best of local farms and fisheries, and warm hospitality. The dream of Chef-Owners Dave MacLennan and Brad Phillips, Even Keel Fish Shack is the realization of an almost 20-year creative and culinary partnership rooted in excellent food, drink, and service. The restaurant’s name is a nod to the crew's overall approach - constant, steady, smooth sailing - with their kitchen journeys spanning across California and the Caribbean, before finding safe harbor here in South Florida.
The menu reflects a modern approach to coastal Floridian cuisine - with fish, shellfish, and a raw bar taking center stage, alongside our interpretation of classic American comfort dishes. The seasonally-driven beverage program is a hands-on collaboration between BootlegGreg Cocktail Co. and Chefs Dave and Brad featuring well-crafted cocktails, boozy frozen drinks, and a selection of house-made syrups, mixers, and cordials. A thoughtfully-curated wine list encourages discovery through a number of interesting by-the-glass offerings, and an edited collection of bottled, tap and local beers round out the selections.
The restaurant's idyllic palm-lined corner encourages guests to sail away with us all day and night. Our relaxed, spirited setting reflects the beach-y, boatie vibes that make South Florida so beloved by residents and visitors, alike. The restaurant’s breezy design embodies a casual warmth thanks to reclaimed wood walls, a beautiful hand-painted mural by artist and friend Cassandra Rose, a collection of knick knacks, and deep nautical influences.
We hope to welcome you soon. In the meantime, #stayevenkeel...
