Cozy and romantic atmosphere. Hubby and I went out for an evening without kids and Glow did not disappoint. We lucked out getting in without reservations; these are recommended in high season.

My entire review can be summed up in that one word. The entire experience....perfection. As a former resident of Rockport, TX, I am bewildered by the lack of quality. This is a destination location, but for the few who enjoy a little beachside class, uniquely...More

The place screamed cosy. The restaurant building was an airy beach cottage. The tables were very close to one another. We felt like we were "dining" with the couple next to us. The food was delicious; it was fresh and perfectly flavored. All four of...More

Now - it was Spring Break - but you need reservations for this place. The first half of the tiny place is the bar, the rest is the dining room. Seats about 25 people. We made plans to go one evening - had to change...More

Stopped for drinks and dinner. Wife had the chicken and I had the Mama's shrimp. The service was very good. Mama's shrimp was excellent, but the chicken so-so. Would give it another try.
