Glow opened in the spring of 2011 and serves simple dishes using the best local seafood and seasonal produce. The restaurant is located in a tiny white boat house and has done recent expansions, including a garden bar and covered porch overlooking Little Bay. The restaurant houses a bright, relaxed atmosphere with local art and recycled barn timber. Glow also offers a full catering service for offsite events, cooking classes and a venue for private meetings, wine dinners and celebrations. Glow is passionate about providing a quality, friendly dining experience for the local community.

Chef and owner Karey Butterworth began her culinary career in Houston, Texas, working in restaurants throughout high school and college, and later in New York City. In 2000, she moved to London, UK and opened a food and catering business which she ran for over eight years before opening Glow in Rockport, Texas. 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.

"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." - Houston Press

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."
