The burgers were average. The beer was cold. Try the upstairs bar for live music and a great view of the water.

Great place to go after spending the day on the beach. Draft beer was cold, the view was great, the vibe was chill and the burger and onion rings hit the spot! Will be back on our next visit.

Sit on the deck, grab a beer or iced tea, load up your burger with all the fixins at the fixins bar, get you some onion rings and CHOW down! No biggy if you sandy and messy from beach fun, itch the SPOT!

Every trip to Galveston, The Spot is my go to place, hands down! The burgers are excellent (I ASK for medium rare) and the shrimp cocktail, out of this world. Always an excellent, excellent time! Awesome view of the ocean too! Highly recommend.

After a thorough search for a place to eat late on a Sunday afternoon, we decided to eat at "The Spot" although we usually prefer to avoid the touristy areas. It was busy and on the seawall but we decided to try anyway. We were very satisfied with the meal-burgers all around. The meat was very tasty and the fresh... More

This is a cool place to sit and have lunch or dinner. The burgers are great and the beer is cold and the view is amazing. We go there every time we go to the island. It has a great vibe and is just a great place for the family... It has different levels with separate themes. The parking is... More

I had chicken tostadas - great chicken, enjoyed big slices of avacado. Very busy, but pick up food pretty quick.

We wanted dinner and drinks. Unfortunately, there's no drinks served in the dining room so we took our food out the the drinking area and it was uncomfortable eating on a bar table. The margaritas were not good. We left very unsatisfied.

We've been eating at The Spot for many years, and it just keeps getting better. This is not a fine dining establishment, it is a place to relax, have a burger or nachos, and a cold beer. They aren't afraid to try new things, both with the food and with the various bar areas, each of which has a different... More
