Enjoyed the view of the beach with Pelicans and Gulls surfing the Gulf. Everyone was pleased with their food. Friends even had good desserts. Local friends eat here.

Just a place to go when on Galveston Island,, pretty good, nice view, some food is better than other, lots of heavy fried stuff, noisy, always crowded.

Food was overpriced for what you get and very bland. Fried pickles were ok, but queso was just melted cheese with no flavor. Burgers were not seasoned at all.

We have been going here occasionally whenever we go to Galveston. The view is great...right across from the water but the food is just ordinary. You can't really mess up a burger with a side of fried something. The desserts and malts/shakes are better and make the trip worth it.

The Spot Restaurant was one of our group dinner stops in September, 2016. The restaurant is an "order at the counter" restaurant and you pick up your food when your buzzer alerts you it's ready. It's a fun place with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. There are two porches on both the street and 2nd floor levels... More

Visited with friends while on vacation. They have good food. The atmosphere was really good. Drinks were good also. They have 3 different areas. Something for everyone. Be sure to visit during happy hour.

Good food, friendly staff, Great choices of venues! 4 atmospheres to choose from and a great variety of food. We went two times in 48hrs... I recommend the chicken wings and piña coladas (in the coconut)!
