[The history behind our Glow Sea Salts.]

Opened in May 2011, Glow is a tiny rustic bistro occupying a former sailboat repair shop. Chef/Owners Karey and David Swartwout offer simple seasonal coastal cooking, featuring local seafood as well as Texas game. Glow also produces a variety of handcrafted sea salt blends based on their house flavors and recipes. Guests can enjoy a relaxing meal in the bright airy dining room, cozy bar and covered porch and garden overlooking Little Bay.

Glow is highly involved in the local community though fundraisers and donations including Read to Shine, Rotary Club, Humane Society, American Heart Society, Rockport Center for the Arts, The Texas Maritime Museum and other non-profit organizations. Glow also provides a scholarship program supporting local high school students for college tuition through our Glow Rockport Foundation (501c3). 

For more information please call 361.727.2644. 

"With an innovative menu as petite as the venue, Glow is committed to local suppliers." 
Texas Monthly
"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." 
Austin Chronicle
"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."
