Overlooking the beach on Galveston, we enjoyed the party atmosphere of the afternoon crowd. The restaurant is large enough for plenty of people. We enjoyed the upstairs balcony, outside seating, though the pigeons seem to be an on-going annoyance-- but provided some entertainment. The burgers were excellent and the condiment bar was bountiful, varied, and fresh. We loved the waffle... More

Food was very good but no waiters or waitress in the area we chose for outside. We ordered at a counter with a number where to send the food out. We choose outside because there was a nice breeze and you could see the Pleasure Pier from there. There was one area that was a bar area with TV's and... More

If you haven't been here you NEED TO GO! This is an island FAVORITE! You might be intimidated by the long line at this place but trust me when I say it is 100% worth it! Every person I have ever introduced to this place is hooked! Everything is pretty fabulous here but the burgers are to die for! It's... More

This is one of the few restaurants we visit on every trip to Galveston. Great burgers that you get to dress the way you like them. I tried the onion rings and they were crisp and not greasy which was great considering it was during the noon rush hour. We will be back each time we return to Galveston.

great food for reasonable money. Starters are served and main course is to pick up but as soon the starters were served our main course was ready to pick up. So we had no time to eat our nachos. The staff was very friendly!

Sometimes I wonder if I'm a bit to harsh on my reviews. I know what I expect but maybe my expectations are too high. Or not. The Spot is busy and a complex of several venues but I'm addressing the burger side only. You better get there early. Long lines at lunch time. Battle for a table. Dont be suprised... More

This place is huge with a lot of options. Some people here complaining about the price but you can see how much everything costs before you order (duh). You walk up to the counter, place your order and come back when they buzz you. This means quicker food and you can get your own refills. If you are looking to... More

I had waited a year to visit The Spot Restaurant in Galveston, Texas and wish I had waited alot longer. Over all the food we got was not good and the prices paid were ridiculous, but I wanted to try it and see. We were all disappointed with with the food. My son got the Steak Tacos that cost $18.00...

This is one, giant, mish-mash of several restaurants and bars. There is a Mexican restaurant, a burger joint, an ice cream parlor, a tiki bar, a beach bar, a gift shop, and some other stuff too. It's confusing and loud. We ate at the "tiki bar" because we were able to get a table that looked out on the water,... More
