My friend and I decided to try The Spot while in Galveston this weekend. You go through a line to order and they give you a beeper to let you know when to pick up your food. They'll bring you your alcoholic drinks. The food was good, I had the spicy shrimp tacos (not even close to being spicy )... More

Absolutely love this place!!! It's huge and their food is awesome. It is well worth the wait. The place has been packed every time I have gone but the restaurant itself is surrounded by bars, no more then 10 steps away from the entrance, so grab a drink and hangout while waiting. The very top patio is the best place... More

Super busy restaurant during the weekends. We never wait in the long line. The best thing to do is get a table at the bar and place order with the waitress. Enjoy your drink and listen for your name. It's well worth the tip for the convenience. The best dessert is the Chocolate Eruption.

We enjoyed the best hamburger and turkey burger in this place. Dining experience was great. Music was great as well. They have free parking. The servers were the greatest. This restaurant is right by the beach. You are looking out at the beach as you enjoy your meal, enjoying the sight seeing. Prices are very reasonable, They also have the... More

Great place to eat with families. You order at the counter and they bring food to your table you get to pick. Nice variety of seafood and American menu at very reasonable price. Seating is indoor or outdoor.

We went for lunch one day on a weekday this summer. It had a few people in both buildings. We chose the roof patio across from the pool. The view of the beach and street people is great. The drinks were good, my waiter was great and the food was pretty good.

If you like a completely ridiculous experience...this is for you. You stand in line to order..no one offers you a menu. If you want an adult beverage you must go to a different building to order it. You have to find you own table. Do not pick the second floor. You are required to pick up your own tableware...which they... More

Stopped in late night on a Monday, they close at 11 and we got there 945p. The ribeye sandwich was great - you can fix it how you like with the bar full of tomatoes, onions, peppers, pickles. Only drawback was a long wait for food, and then they shut down the drinks machine for cleaning at 1045p ... we... More
