Located facing the lake in Rockwall, this is not an easy place to find especially at night. But find it and have a wonderful dining experience. A wait may be expected but this place is worth the wait. Great menu including unique drinks such as the spicy margarita. Staff is very professional and polite. Service extraordinarily quick! Flavors fresh and... More

Great place for a date on the water or hanging with friends and family! Staff is so great and the food is amazing!!! Best sangria I've ever had is here! The best bean dip when you arrive! Prices aren't too bad either. Definitely a place you should visit. Lots of options on the menu as well.

We had excellent service. Our waiter was spot on, cute and friendly. The menu choices were excellent and hard to choose from because it all looked so good. I loved the outdoor atmosphere and a general awesome family get together. THANKS!

My business partner stopped in for an early lunch and enjoyed the entire experience. We sat at the bar and was greeted by a very nice, attentive and knowledgeable bartender. I had a delicious, fresh strawberry mojito and my partner had the mango margarita, she declared the best margarita she had ever tasted. We followed the recommendations from the bartender... More

I love Gloria's. One of my favorite go to dishes is the Ceviche Tostada - it is always delicious. The tamales and Pupusas are amazing as well. Sour cream enchiladas are wonderful. The red salsa as well as the black bean dip are addicting to say the least. No trip to Gloria's is complete without a Meltdown Margarita - trust... More

I personally I'm not a big fan of the El Salvadoran/Tex Mex concept, but the food is fine. For my personal taste, the Tex Mex dishes are bland and miss the mark. For Tex Mex I would rather cross the lake and go to Primos. Salsa is a big factor in judging Mexican food and I don't like theirs, but... More

My wife and I went out for a Sunday brunch at Gloria's. We sat on the patio and it was a beautiful day. We had mimosa's and both had a meal. She had breakfast tacos and I had the sirloin steak with yucca and plantains. We both enjoyed our meals. The atmosphere was great, quite a good sized crowd for... More

Over priced Mexican food. Slow service with an arrogant attitude. It appeared we were simply putting out the staff by being there. Plate was hot, but the food was crusty dry on top and had obviously sat out for awhile uncovered.

This is one of my favorite places to eat at the Harbor. Their margaritas are great and the food is always good. The only bad part is the wait sometimes. There is very little indoor waiting area or bar seating, so if it's hot or cold outside you could have to deal with it if you really want to eat... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner while passing through town. The staff was friendly. The restaurant is in a great location. We found the food to be good but nothing that remarkable. I would not discourage someone from stopping in and eating. But don't expect anything spectacular.
