Great sandwiches, burgers & atmosphere. Super busy,

Our group ordered the shrimp Po Boy, burger & kids chicken. There is a condiment bar with onions, tomatoes etc so you can dress your sandwich up the way you like. Thumbs up on all entries & the sweet tea was excellent. We went at lunch time on a Saturday & it was packed. It's located across the... read more

My family of 5 went to The Spot while in Galveston as we have many times. The food is always good, but the service this time was absolutely awful. It was a busy afternoon so the line to order was out the door, as expected. We noticed while the 5 of us waited to order that people would step out... More

Good service. Fairly extensive menu with burgers, fish, and shrimp. Moderately priced. Outside seating available overlooking the beach.

We were touristing in Galveston and driving along the ocean (Seawall Blvd). My wife Googled "Best Burgers in Galveston" and "The Spot" came up. It was convenient to where we were, so we stopped and went in. Jeepers! It's sort of like a Tiki Village with four or five different rooms in which to eat. One is focused on a... More

Great burgers! Fun atmosphere! Right on the seawall, so you can watch the waves roll in and the surfers.

This place is good my family and I always eat here when we go to galveston Texas. The only complaint is the loooong line but defiantly worth the wait.

I liked the food, I won't say it was amazing, I would just say, I liked the food. The lines to get the food are killers, to wait for 30 min to move through the line, it's terrible especially considering how hot it is. I would recommend this place if it would be extremely slow, but otherwise, I'd better find... More

This place is definitely "the spot" for great food, fun tropical atmosphere and people watching on the strip. While it often seems the trade off for a restaurant with a fun "gimmicky" motif is subpar food this is FAR from the case here! The fish tacos have become the measuring stick for all others since!

The food is good. Service is fast except during peak meal times. Come hungry because there is plenty. Great hamburgers. Their seafood has always been good too.

Obnoxious crowd, it's just a bunch of drunken frat guys, (this coming from a mid-twenty yr old) I find it too loud, and often too annoying. I will say the milkshakes and burgers are great. Take it to-go and sit on the sea wall.
