The Spot is a great place to just sit back,relax,get some good grub, drinks, and just enjoy watching the water crash into the surf. It's a awesome place to watch the games as well!

This is a little gem . When we are in Galveston The Spot is a must do. We usually eat there 3 or 4 times on each trip. The burgers are wonderful, the seafood is terrific. The casual atmosphere is a plus. It is an order at the counter and pick it up yourself kind of place. Right on the Seawall so the views are awesome. Great bar area if you just want to chill. Can't say enough about this great place. We have been going there for years.

If you want atmosphere, good eats and drinks, follow the locals and tourists alike to the Spot. Dine inside or outside on the deck...........either way - - - - -you'll be back for more!!

Harley-Davidson Motorcycles ONLY, please. No rice rockets or Bandito's.
This place has a website with a livecam so you can check the weather before you go.
Cool covered bar with abundant bikers and the occasional biker chick who is so hot you'll thereafter buy lottery tickets with the hope of getting rich so you can afford one, or trade up from your current year model.
Sometimes there's a local rock band that will never leave the island, doing covers of 70s hits.
Too many children on weekends that parents should lock in a dark room until some gypsies will by them.
Actually, the food is very good and highly recommended.
Beware of the Galveston PD who lurk nearby to nail you for any and every traffic violation.
And finally, watch out for drooling tourists near the entrance to the nearby Pleasure Pier amusement park. They act like moths attracted to the bright lights after seeing electricity for the first time.

When visiting Galveston, whether to spend time on the beaches, shop on The Strand or taking a cruise .. this is a great place to eat, at noon or the evening. It is located within three older houses, with large outside balconies overlooking the beach and the Gulf. Our family eats here on a regular basis, and everything on the menu tastes great. They have great seafood dinners as well as sandwiches. Their desserts are worth the price. They not only look good, they taste great. Weekends there will be a wait.
