My family and I visited Galveston for the first time in May (2016) and my daughter and I came back in September. We LOVE The Spot. Great food. Excellent view. Fun place. Great deal. We ate there three times in our four days in September. You will not be disappointed.

So many people head right here its amazing to me. The hamburgers are just okay. Not great, not bad. The VIEW however, is outstanding and the beer cold. Its self service and a bit noisy with lots of kids or bikers, but hey its all about the view

While bar hopping stopped at the Spot. Great live band and atmosphere. Drinks were higher priced then some of the other bars but with the live band it was a wash.

The back ones which were NOT busy and the more laid back ones is where you can order liquor. This is inconvenient for us as I order cocktails and my husband orders beers. We left pretty quick as...

After decades of eating along the Gulf Coast and having great food, we recently dove into the two story restaurant called "The Spot" along the sea wall in Galveston. The line was a bit long, but we had time to kill and it was well worth the short wait. You make your selections at the counter and pic your view,... More

Gave them a 5 star because they are great for what they are. A hang out spot, on the beach, for locals and tourists alike. Kids, dogs, bikers, moms and dads and your whole group of friends will have a seriously fun time here. Loved it as a tourist and later as a "local". The waffle fries are the best... More
