The food and ambiance is great. We have been to this place many times and is always good. We enjoy everything from the view to the food. Service is good and casual.

We've been to Galveston many times, but we've only just been to The Spot. We drove in from Austin, and were tired and hungry. The burgers were tasty and waffle fries were great.the kids really liked the onion rings - beer battered and huge. The staff was very friendly, and we really enjoyed it.

Stopped in the Spot for a solo dinner. It was a Thursday evening and the place was busy. But the service was prompt (order and pickup food at a counter). The burger was one of the best I've had in a while and the fries were good as well. A nice feature was their condiment bar. It included all the... More

It's a cool place. Laid back beach bum kinda place. Sip some cool drinks, check out the surf, suck down a few oysters and grab a nice bite to eat. Very casual, affordable, and dependable. I dig The Spot and you will too!

We stopped for dessert after a less than desirable dinner. Service staff was Very accommodating and we were able to taste the various flavors of ice cream offered, staff made suggestions about the best! We got the cheese cake and chocolate moose cake.... Fantastic!!!! Would definitely go back for more than dessert next time !!!

After being treated badly at a different establishment we went to one of our favorite places on the island. We always love it here. Nick was very polite, funny and full of energy. The food was GREAT!.....on the way out we stopped at the Sweet Spot and Jasmine was very nice and professional as we picked out two great desserts.... More

For the best happy hour on the Island, go to the Spot. They have a separate happy hour menu of adult beverages and menu items that is hard to beat. I prefer the wings, and a pitcher of cold beer, all for the lavish price of $12. Can't go wrong.

Great burgers, onion rings, and shrimp poboys! Sometimes the search for an indoors seat can be tough, be prepared to wait for others to finish.

This was the first time I have been to the Spot during the off season and it was great. The Spot has always had great food but the crowds during the summer really bite. We just stopped by in January and it was great. No fighting for a table, no waiting in a long line. Food was great and we... More
