Opened in May 2011, Glow is a tiny coastal kitchen inside an old former sailboat repair shop offering simple seasonal cooking, featuring local seafood as well as Texas game. Glow produces a variety of handcrafted dishes and desserts for takeout based on their house flavors for guests to enjoy at home. There's also a covered porch and picnic tables overlooking Little Bay where guests can enjoy beer, wine, cocktails and a rotating menu of seasonal small plates.
Glow is committed to sustainability in our community and beyond. As an Ocean Friendly Restaurant, we hope to help reduce harmful single-use plastics and shine a light on the threats our oceans and bays face. How do we do this? We recycle, only offer reusable food ware onsite, provide only paper bags and to-go boxes (no plastic or styrofoam), eliminate all straws, and offer sustainable seafood for our customers. We are also highly involved in supporting the local community though fundraisers and donations including Foodways Texas, GULF Restaurant Program, Coastal Bend Surfrider Restaurant, Aransas County Education Foundation, Rotary Club, AC Humane Society, American Heart Society, Rockport Center for the Arts, The Texas Maritime Museum and more.

"With an innovative menu as petite as the venue, Glow is committed to local suppliers."
"Shining on the South Texas Gulf Coast is the sweet bijou of a restaurant - appropriately named Glow - in a transformed boathouse facing the waters of Little Bay."
"The fish is amazing. Helped along by a pitch-perfect grilling and the scantest amount of salt and black pepper, it is impossibly juicy, fat and tender."
