“Ten years of service to my community, leaves me full of pride,” said owner Mickey Wooten. “I have had such an opportunity to serve so many wonderful neighbors. The challenges have been many; but the rewards are measured by the return of such loyal customers. It is flattering to say the least.”
The popular restaurant is decorated throughout with select coastal pieces of art for sale from Pat O'Brien of Kemah's Eagle's Nest Gallery. Coupled with the chic art and coastal decor, the restaurant has a clubby feel complete with thick, dark mahogany booths, rich paneling, and etched decorator glass. The setting enhances your dining experience. The spacious outdoor dining patio is a fun place to sit.
Just in time to mark this milestone, South Shore Grille has added items to their already vast and delectable menu. The new menu items destined to become customer favorites are the hearty Lentil and Sausage Soup, flavorful Chili Con Queso Con Carne, Redfish Ponchartrain (light cream sauce of mushrooms, red pepper, shrimp and crabmeat over a char-grilled redfish fillet), a tasty Parmesan Crusted Trout, a lightly seasoned Pasta D’Angelo, delicious Pan Seared Oysters, a classic Greek salad, and the Shrimp and Oyster Po-boys.
Tried and true menu choices that are sure to please are the Marina Bay Hot Seafood Dip, Stuffed Jalapeños, Prime Salad Dinner, Chicken Salad Dinner, Seafood Salad Louie, Cuban Fish Tacos, Crab Cake Duvalle, Cuban Chicken Melt, the certified Angus steak signature Prime Rib, Caribbean Grouper, Atlantic Salmon, and grilled Mahi Mahi.
Top off your dining experience with an Island Brownie Decadence or the Cuban Bread Pudding.
The experienced and attentive wait staff are ready to assist you in finding the perfect dinner beverage to complement your meal. South Shore Grille serves a wide variety of martinis, as well as mojitos and other fine mixed drinks. Their wine, beer and spirits list is extensive and enticing.
"We want everyone who visits South Shore Grille to feel at home, whether in our bar, our main dining area or under the awning in our outdoor patio setting," says Wooten. “Our philosophy is simple: If you don't come into The Grille already a friend, you're bound to leave that way."
"The Bay Area is home to me and my family, and has been for many years," says Wooten. Giving back to the community is important to him.
South Shore Grille has partnered with Clear Creek I.S.D. to fund two annual educational scholarships of $5,000 for CCISD seniors. To be considered, students must have a minimum “B” average, show leadership, volunteerism, and write a compelling essay on how they will give back to their community after graduation. Contact Kaci Harrison, the Executive Director for the CCISD Education Foundation at 281-284-0031 for details.
Wooten also maintains involvement with the R.J.H. Foundation’s “Salute To Heroes” annual event held each June at South Shore Harbour Resort. The foundation is named after Ray Joseph Hutchinson, a graduate of Clear Creek High School, who died in Iraq serving his country.
South Shore Grille is open Mondays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. for lunch and dinner. The venue also offers a private dining room for up to 25 people for a truly exceptional group dining experience. It’s the perfect setting for a family outing or office get-together.
