i adore this place. the hamburgers are so good! if you don't like a crowd then skip this place because it is always crowded. the condiments bar is open so if you're squeamish about other people breathing around your lettuce this isn't the place for you. their fish sandwich is very very good but I always get a burger!

Have you ever been to a place where you feel like you need instructions before getting in line? Well for us we were starving and wanting to watch the soccer game, so we pulled over to this place which has the smallest parking lot on earth for such a crazy packed place. It's actually like three different places in one... More

Happy hour is monday through friday 3-7pm. Imagine the food you get for $6. When food comes it is 4xbigger! House Rita is $4 and a topper of more liqueur is only $1! Tuesdays happy hour ends at midnight! Oceanview...wow! They have live bands Fri thru sun! They have four different bars. Don't get the wine ritas...they are too sweet.

This past Memorial Day weekend I visited The Spot for the first time. The first time I went, I went for lunch. It is a very interesting place. The establishment is three levels and has a restaurant side and a bar side. The bar side is the three levels and has a different name for each level. It's located on... More

We were in Galveston and ate lunch at the SPOT. We sat outside because there was a good breeze. The set up in this restaurant isn't that great. You place your order and then they buzz you when it's done. Since we were upstairs sitting outside, it's a long way to go to carry your food once it is done.... More

Great location for people watching. The food is pretty good too. They handle large crowds very smoothly. This is a great stop for lunch.

We are regulars to Galveston and we make it a point to eat at The Spot for at least one meal. We've liked everything we've ever ordered from burgers to shrimp to shakes. We always try to sit outside and if that's not available then a window seat inside. The views are great. If it is your first time, it's... More

if you travel to Galveston, this is a must stop place for food and drinks! My favorite food dish is the fried crab stuffed jalapeños. They are delicious. Wash them down at one of the 4 different bars. Great place to relax.

The Spot is perfectly located. The food and drink are not really the best, but the atmosphere is fun, and there is excellent people watching.
