Can't beat the view... try to snag a table on the patio or the upstairs deck. Burgers are really tasty, but the Gulf shrimp po-boys are my favorite. Shrimp is fresh off the boat and delicious. Also love the seared tuna salad. Pina coladas are tasty and fun and served in a coconut shell. Delicious, spicy crawfish in season. Save... More

This place is well worth the time you wait in line to order (they actually move the line quite quickly)! Plus, its actually a collection of 5 bars/restaurants so while you're waiting in line to order food from The Spot you can order a drink at the Island Bar! Once your food is ready you do have to go grab... More

We enjoyed the Spot on our first night in Galveston. My shrimp tacos were delicious. My husband enjoyed the build a burger concept. Our kids were full on the kids' meals. It was busy, but that tells you the food is good!

We had seafood fish and chips, burgersand fries and fish tacos. The burgers are the only thi g that we liked. Cod was small and overcooked burnt almost. Seafood bland. Burgers are excellent.

Beth, Thank you for your rating. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the burger. Providing quality seafood is one of our highest priorities. The Fish & Chips is usually a large portion and golden fried and the Blackened Fish Tacos are usually a guest favorite. I apologize that this was not the case when you visited. I have already...

I've been to the Spot over 20 times in the last 20 years and have never been disappointed in the food, the ambiance, and the scene. Love their burgers, seafood, and the hot dog :). We always sit outside on the deck because that is the place to be. There is a live band on the weekends. Great place for... More

It is a high energy self service restaurant which sort of challenged this upper middle ager, but it was fun and we all had a very good time once I figured out the "protocols" and the stairs and we got all our tables and chairs arranged. The food was great and not unreasonably priced considering it's a prime location on... More

We always like going here if nothing else to people watch and look at the Gulf water. They have amazing hamburgers and their drinks are really good. Prices are very reasonable. The bikers like this venue for it has five others beside The Spot. They have something for everyone.
