Happened to stumble upon this amazing restaurant, and was so glad I did! Staff, food, cocktails and atmosphere was AMAZING! Has to be the best place to eat in Rockport!

My husband and I went here for date night and were very disappointed. We had the Gumbo and Grouper. Both plates were under seasoned and absolutely not worth the money. The presentation of the Grouper was sub par and the cauliflower puree was not impressive. The shrimp in the Gumbo were overcooked and the flavor lacked any authenticity. I loved... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. On our first evening in Rockport we made a snap decision to eat at GLOW. It was a great decision. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. Will definitely return.

Sensational meal in small town Texas. The restaurant is outstanding, and the service just perfect. We had the Glow Salad, and Glow Gumbo; followed by the red snapper and grouper. But the cheese plate with some delightful red wine (Napa Cab Sav), was the pinnacle. What an inventive, tasteful menu! This is a gem of a place, and will surprise... More

We've been fans of Glow since it opened, and yes, from time to time we've had to overlook some glitches in service or a misfire in the kitchen, but on the whole the food that was served up was the best in the area. When the owner was in the kitchen, things seemed to hum. When she took the night... More

Dinner service can be strained when they arec busy, and we've had to wait a long time for our meals. One time they lost or forgot about our order and had to re-place the order, but we were with local/snowbird friends so we spent the time getting caught up since the previous visit. It is a great spot for a... More

I have never eaten here but I volunteer at the various places in town and hear fabulous remarks about Glow. I also heard she makes her own sea salt from the bay. Ask. I don't know about the validity of this.

On a recent visit to Rockport for the whooping cranes, my friend and I chose to visit Glow for dinner - it was close to where we were staying and looked nice. Not many people when we arrived so we received immediate and excellent service. The waiter/bartender (sorry forgot his name) was charming, answered all our questions with a smile,... More

I went here on the recommendation of friends and of reviews. I was disappointed that there was no Happy Hour except in the bar area. I had come for a meal but could only get the specials on the patio or at the bar. Other than that, I had the prix fixe combination which was perfect for me: chowder and... More
