The food was ok, we had ate a Cajun dish and it was overly spicy, the place was so busy our waiter never refilled our drinks, so my husband gulped down my drink cause the food was so hot. My kids ate their chicken stips and liked it but I wouldn't go there again and spend $60.00, Id rather go... More

Many flock here on weekends. But to me it very overrated. If you just want to have a beer and enjoy a cigar...don't stop!

We walked in and saw that the menu was more expensive and had less variety than we had expected. My steak tacos were delicious but were apparently an appetizer rather than a meal. After seeing food at other tables I wished I had ordered a fish fry. The kids enjoyed their food as did my husband but his portion was... More

Tasty platter of white fish tacos with wonderful, light sauce. Just right for a little snack after swimming in the Gulf.

This was our first time at this restaurant, and it sure won't be the last. Some of the best fried shrimp I have ever tasted! My sister was visiting from Milwaukee and I thought I would have to drag her away. A young man who was cleaning tables raised our umbrella and we had a great view of the seawall.... More

We always eat here first when we arrive in Galveston. The food always tastes great. We usually walk right to the counter. However, Spring break meant a long line. Worth the wait! All the items are freshly made and just great. In addition the views are the best along the sea wall. We will be back!

This is a fun place to have a few beers with friends and just watch the world go by. There three different levels and a variety of food. I highly suggest the shrimp kisses, They are bacon wrapped shrimp with pepper jack cheese. Yum! There is a nice fire pit upstairs with great lounge chairs

This has always been our go to spot in Galveston. The food is great and the view is awesome. Overall, the environment gives you a great vibe and it's a nice spot to enjoy some well cooked food. The patio is very comfortable and it's a super fun place to be!

I really am hesitant to review The Spot because it's already so crowded! Other than the crowds, the worst thing about The Spot is having to choose just one entree from their FABULOUS menu! On someone's recommendation, I decided on the hamburger from the kids' menu rather than a full-size entree. It was a GREAT deal - and possibly the... More
