Lovely Intimate Setting with Great Food

The fish was right out of the gulf, fresh and good! The vegetables were cooked perfectly and the service was great -- not to mention the wine selection. The bread pudding sauce was outstanding - the bread in the pudding could have been soaked longer. I will definitely go back. This place is a true... read more

Glow is a nice restaurant that could be much better. Nicely decorated with a homey feel to it. We had a shrimp appetizer which was good but not great. The chicken Parmesan was small and the sauce was bland. Bread was good and freshly baked. Our server was efficient but not engaging. I expected more based on other reviews and... More

I enjoyed a delicious shrimp dish, salad and a glass of wine. The menu made it hard to decide which dish to try ! the fresh homemade bread was a special treat. This would be an excellent place to celebrate a special event or impress your clients.

Very nice and cozy location - lots of mouthwatering entrées on their menu - big wine list aaaand safe your space for desert (AND the Port). So glad... More

this small restaurant is charmingly decorated, the service is good, but everything is eclipsed by the outstanding food...the best of the best in the Rockport/Fulton area.....

When mom and I went for lunch last year, there were only 2 more people in the restaurant. High priced for what you get. I was still hungry when we left. I am 5' 1 and 110 lbs., so even though I eat a lot for my size, I certainly don't want to eat and go away hungry. I won't... More

They catered our son's wedding at the Estelle Stair gallery. The food was delicious and the service was great. I highly recommend them.

We dined at Glow recommended by the Orvis fly shop. It was very good. The bread served was excellent. The seafood chowder was also one of the best we have ever had. The mixed seafood plate with fried oysters, shrimp and local grouper was also delicious. We were very pleased with our choice for dinner in Rockport.

Awful service, ordered messy BBQ shrimp appetizer. When server removed empty plates she set the used flatware in the middle of the table and although inside restaurant almost empty did not replace or even offer to....chicken parmigiana was more like Col Sanders meets Olive Garden.....they put mint in a dry Grey Goose martini YIKES. Steak tough and inspite of 2... More

This is a nice little restaurant. Small and friendly with wonderful food. The meals are flavorful and inventive. One a nice evening you can sit outside and enjoy their fire pit and the view of Little Bay. Great for a special night out.
