A large group of coworkers made a reservation at Glow for dinner and we were all very impressed! The restaurant is on the smaller side but has a very beachy, cottage seaside vibe. We ordered many appetizers and everyone ordered something different on the menu. I had the chicken and after everyone had a bite they all agreed it was... More

Steak was sent back twice, ordered rare. Out of Grouper, Calamari was very greasy. Fish portions are quite small for the price. Other than that, the food was tasteful and may even give it another shot.

This is a small restaurant in Rockport Texas. It has lots of atmosphere and delicious food. The seafood of course is the best. Mom's shrimp dish is my favorite. Go if you're ever in Rockport!

Small, cozy place. Nestled between a couple of condo developments, so keep an eye out for it. Great cuisine, good local find. Bench seating was a little uncomfortable because they are old boat cushions. That's my only complaint and it's a minor one.

We just sailed into Rockport and were getting tired of seafood. Decided to try the Glow approach to a strip sirloin. Amazing! Huge! Tender! Tasty! Glow is a tiny and charming coastal restaurant with a brilliant chef. The service was attentive, the wine list is small but brilliant, the food is truly World-Class. We will return, again and again.

We visited Glow a couple of years ago and were very pleased but were somewhat surprised to see that in the time since we had last visited, the restaurant had received some less than "Glowing" ratings. We invited friends to go with us last week but warned them that, though we had had a good experience previously, the place had... More

Not impressed with the way the food was prepared. For amount we paid for the dinner, expected better quality. Over priced, short staffed. Will Not Go Back. Wine $9.00 a glass. We spent $107. including tip.

We were seated promptly at 5:30 when they opened. Left at 7:00. Even though we were the only people there, the kitchen was very slow. I guess maybe they cook everything from scratch?? The fried seafood was wonderful. We absolutely loved the fried shrimp. We also ordered dessert, bread pudding. I can't figure out why it took 20 minutes for... More

My husband and I went to Glow and loved it! It was charming, relaxing, and romantic. The chef and waiters checked on his frequently. The crab cakes were out of this world with both shrimp and crab in them. The homemade bread was crusty and delicious. I had the snapper with crab topping. My husband had mom's shrimp. The table...
