Great burgers

This is the place to go for food, and great view. We have been a couple of times and not disappointed. If you decide to try this place expect to wait. My favorite is the burger and fries. They offer you a great veggie bar to finish your burger just the way you like. Try this place if your on... read more

Had been recommended by family, they were right! Friendly staff, great view of Gulf beach from second level. Great drink and appetiser deals during happy hour. Must try the mojitos and the southwest shrimp cocktail.

We visited the island with friends who love close by, as we were driving through on vacation. The view from our seats was amazing. We could watch the amusement rides and the gulf. Just perfect! That's where is stopped. Finding a seat and or having waitstaff help you was draining. Once we were seated, ordered drinks and food we were... More

This place has an awesome looking sign but it's all self-service. This place was really bad and let me say why: 1) They don't clean their tables at all. I sat next to a table where people had eaten and stay dirty filled with plates and cups for about an hour. See what that tells you about the servers and/or... More

They do a great job on all the food but the burgers seem to be the best around Galveston Island. Get there early for lunch because the crowd gets big fast.

We found out that thehave specials every day except Saturdays. Same bucket of 6 for $12. So next time we will... More

We have to go to The Spot every time we are in Galveston. Love the location right on the Seawall so you can watch the waves and the people going by. The food is good.

If you want a great hamburger or salad plus fried shrimp and etc. this is a great place to go. It's not a cheap burger joint but you get value for your money.

Went for a late night bite to eat with group of 10 including kids. You order at counter then find a place to sit. Plenty of seating both inside and out. Food was very good and reasonably priced.
