I love The Spot for a trendy touristy place to eat. Good food no matter if it's burgers, salads, or shrimp! Prepare for a crowd but worth it!

So cool! It was awesome. We visited middle of the week it long before sunset. The burgers and fries were delicious!! The chicken sandwich was rubbery. Overall the family had an enjoyable time with excellent food and an outstanding view.

We came on a weekday evening. It took 20 min to get to the counter and 45 minutes to get our food- and that's only because we went down to the pick up place and asked what was going on. Apparently there had been a...More

Was very pleasantly surprised by our lunch at The Spot when we arrived in Galveston. Great atmosphere with view of the ocean. Food was very good and hand spun shakes were excellent.

ML, I am sorry for the late response to your question. We did make the Chicken & Sausage Gumbo as well as the Roux in house. However, since the roux was produced inconsistently, we decided to remove the Gumbo from the menu... More
