After a disappointing experience about 4 years ago, we said never again, but our friend wanted to go there for her birthday, so... Although we arrived at 6:30 and the place was empty, it took 1/2 hour to get food. During the wait, we noticed that the greenery on our table was crawling w/aphids. We told the waitress,who took ours... 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 us thoroughly enjoyed our choices

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 plans - and they were very accommodating. The service was great and the food was... 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.

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

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
