We were seated promptly at 5:30 when they opened. Left at 7:00. Even though we were the only people there, the kitchen was very slow. I guess maybe they cook everything from scratch?? The fried seafood was wonderful. We absolutely loved the fried shrimp. We...More

Glow was a glimmer. The first crab cake and shrimp combo ever experienced. the servings are small but the quality is tops. Service is professional. The chef was not present, but the kitchen staff did good.

I truly hate writing bad reviews, especially when it is about a persons livelihood. First let me say we have been to Glow many times since it opened. Although the wait staff has always been arrogant, Chef Butterworth made up for it with her warmth...More

I almost didn't stop, because there were no cars in the parking lot, and I would have thought it was closed except that I had called ahead to confirm that they were open. When I went in I was the only customer in the restaurant....More
