The happy hour "Seafood Board" consisted of 3 fried shrimp and 3 fried oysters. Not much of a value at a $12 price. Both were wonderfully prepared and presented, but there are better happy hours in the area. Patio is small with a decent view of Little Bay. The view is somewhat negated by the various smokers. (Some were sitting... More

My best dining experience in Rockport on recent visit. Innovative fresh menu... Don't remember my menu choices (and my computer not opening adobe docs today!!!-can't refresh by looking at menus!).

Went to Glow our first evening here and delightfully surprised. Great food, good service. Try the roasted Brussels Sprouts. We are going back soon.

Simply Fantastic. This is our favorite restaurant in Rockport, and we eat here once a month or so (we are residents). I have no idea why there are a few poor reviews here, but I feel the need to write a good one, as each time we've dined here the food and service have been EXCELLENT. The fish dishes have... More

We enjoyed almost everything in this quaint tiny restaurant. Love the decor! We had yummy cocktails and shrimp board to start. Caesar salad was a bust... soggy salad greens and chopped bread not toasted crotons. Fried chicken was our favorite entree. Also liked Mom's Shrimp... great sauce! Grouper was good but not as unique. Filet was cooked perfectly. Chocolate Pot... More

Small, quaint restaurant with excellent cocktails, good wine list, and wonderful menu. Shrimp is fresh as and the herbs and veggies. Great evening.

The location was very good and the restaurant is small, but intimate. Our waiter was very good as well, but the food was tepid and not all served at the same time. Do not think this was waiter's fault, but the fault of the kitchen. Would probably not go back again.

This is a small chef owned restaurant. The menu was creative and there were even a couple of vegetarian options. The cocktails were also creative and yummy. I highly recommend this for a delightful dinner. The evening was pleasant when we were there so we ate outside which is quiet and cozy. The food was leagues better than the several... More

We enjoyed the crab cakes, shrimp dish, and grouper. All were very good. The restaurant is small and was quiet on a weeknight. The service was friendly and helpful. This is the second time we have dined here. The first time was a year ago.

What a great little restaurant and a fabulous experience! Delicious food and wonderful service! Would definitely go back! Our fav was a tie between the Crab & Shrimp cakes or the Chocolate Pot--yummy dark chocolate with chile Pequin, walnut honeycomb & chantilly cream❤️. Reminded us of the small, eclectic restaurants in Austin and Dallas!

Thank Sharon D
