Every business person yearns for milestones of success in their career and as Mickey Wooten, owner of South Shore Grille in League City says, “3,655 days after opening our doors, all of us at the South Shore Grille are so happy to celebrate our tenth anniversary. We began with the usual underfunded business plan that took three years to accomplish when we had planned to meet our goal in six months.”

Wooten and his employees persevered in spite of having Hurricane Rita hit during their first year, followed by hurricane Ike in 2009.  While dealing with the rebuilding of the community from that direct hit, the housing bubble burst arrived with an ensuing three years of recession. Wooten says, “It seems that the world is always challenging us entrepreneurs in one arena or another. The upside is that when you learn the tricks of survival, you don’t forget them.”

South Shore Grille is enjoying the gift of a great community, fabulous customers, a top notch staff and a great location. The Grille offers a diverse menu of sandwiches, salads, seafood, steaks, prime rib, fish tacos and home made desserts including its world famous bread pudding. Contributing to the restaurants success is a cozy atmosphere with dimly lit leather booths and a full bar with extensive wine and martini offerings. A tropical patio is very inviting in spring and fall.

The restaurant has the good fortune to be conjoined with the Home by Eagles’ Nest Gallery next door. The gallery has tastefully decorated the Grille with coastal art and home décor items throughout the restaurant.

If the name Eagles’ Nest rings a bell it’s because the original Eagles’ Nest Gallery is a landmark in the Kemah Lighthouse District. Pat O’Brien and wife Darlene have owned the family operated original Eagles’ Nest in Kemah for 27 years.

The new location, adjoining South Shore Grille has just expanded to triple its size and features tasteful paintings, lamps, area rugs, accent pieces, sculptures, jewelry and gifts.

As O’Brien says, “If you are searching for that special piece to compliment your home décor, redecorating, or need the perfect gift or jewelry accessory, then the Eagles’ Nest in Kemah and Home by Eagles’ Nest Gallery are the places to shop.”
