Nice little quiet place

We had dinner and wine for a business trip to the area, and found this quaint little restaurant, with great food and superb staff. The atmosphere is almost like having dinner at a friends house, with all the benefits of that, with a small menu, and attentive service.

We had lunch at this quaint little boat house yesterday. The food was outstanding. We started with a house salad topped with fresh grilled shrimp and our meal included Vietnamese fish tacos (fresh grouper), green chile mac n cheese, and roasted brussels sprouts with bacon. All items were expertly prepared and presented. We are repeat customers and our dining experiences... More

A nice cozy place, that would be great for a family dinner, or a couples date. Green chili Mac and cheese is delicious. Steaks are good as well, with some game on the menu. Must have while in rockport.

What a delicious find! This cozy little restaurant features fresh seafood and a catch of the day. We enjoyed an early dinner of Mom's shrimp ( a white wine and fresh mushroom sauce with a generous portion of well seasoned and sautéed fresh shrimp over a creamy bed of potato puree), and the gulf plate featuring smallish crab cakes, sautéed...

My husband and I have eaten at Glow countless times since they have opened and the food has never disappointed us! It's 5 star dining all the way in a small quaint vacation town. The restaurant is housed in an old original boat house that adds to the charm and sweet old-world allure of Glow. If you are looking for... More

There were 7 of us who went for the second seating on Valentine's Day. Reservation was for 7:45 and we were seated at 8:20. Thank goodness we had come a little early to have a drink at the bar as we were told we could. At least we could sit and wait while others were lined up out the door.... More

My wife and I went there on Saturday, Five tables were occupied. There were two servers working. We have been to Glow before so we were prepared to wait, which is fine. After we had been there for awhile, our server stopped by our table and asked "what are you waiting on" I told her that with only a few... More

It was our fourth night dining in Rockport on vacation, and we were losing heart. Everything so far had been a disappointment, with quality of food in inverse proportion to prices. A foodie friend recommended Glow and boy, are we grateful. It's in a little house on the main drag, so once you're inside you might think you were dining... More

Glow is a small place with great food. Because of the acoustics, we enjoyed being able to carry on a conversation while dining. We will return the next time we are in Rockport.

My wife, daughter and I ate here 3 years ago and were delighted with the food and homey atmosphere in this little restaurant, including the bread pudding dessert that was excellent (4 stars). So we returned there this Dec. 26 and were disappointed in 2 ways. A significant number of dishes were unavailable "due to the holiday", so why open... More
