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...More

After trying a few of the local restaurants offering warm wine and fried food, I was relieved to stumble upon Glow. Housed in a small wooden shack set back from the road, the atmosphere is minimal and cozy with a bar area for those who...More

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....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!
