This was a great place for my wife and I to take some time away during our family vacation. The food was very good and the music was better. The entire place oozes with fun and the drinks were first rate. We will be back.

Great fried pickles, good shrimp kisses, good fried shrimp plate. Staff were friendly. View of Pleasure Pier at sunset was wonderful.

The food was good, but pricey. For two of us, it came to about $40 and we shared a fried fish platter and got 2 drinks. We sat ourselves and we got called when our food was up. We had to get our own utensils, condiments and etc. It was recommended by a hotel staff where we stayed. Probably won't... More

My family and I visited this restaurant on 8/12/14. We had a great visit from the time we walked in until we left. The young man behind the counter was very nice and provided great customer service. The food was good and the view was just what we were looking for. The price was reasonable and my family had a... More

My husband and I were walking around Galveston Island searching for a place to eat lunch. We wanted a beach view, and my husband looked up and saw the top patio of "The Spot" with patio umbrellas, and facing the beach. Up we went! It has a very casual atmosphere. Probably geared to the younger crowd, but we didn't feel... More

This is our favorite place after a day on the beach. The view from the deck is great. The food has always been very good, although they do pour butter all over anything and everything. If you ask, they will hold the butter.

Their milkshakes are literally so good that I would order one to compliment my last meal on earth. But only if I didn't have to wait in line for 20 minutes to get one. This place has the longest line I've ever waited in for a restaurant, but once you place your order, the process is surprisingly efficient. Even when... More

We ate here for lunch on a sunday. The food was good. It's kind of like a Fuddruckers only in my opinion better. The prices aren't too bad. There is outdoor dining with views of the ocean. While we went in January we were down that way this past weekend and drove by there on Friday evening and there did... More

My daughter and I ate here our last night in Galveston. It was a Tuesday night so not really to busy. Ate out on the patio and the food was great. We both had the spot burger one with waffle fries and one with onion rings. This will be a "Spot" we go to every time we visit.

We went there 7pm, and the restaurant is very busy. So we decided to grab a drink upstairs, very loud music if u just want sit and talk. But this place is for younger people so it's okay. We found a corner and enjoyed some good mojitos. Service was good.
