“very good atmosphere and delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Our favorite place to eat on the Island. It's crowded but it's worth it. Fair prices, you get your food quick (even when the line is long), and you better snag a table if you see someone leave; quickly.

“Good drinks, bad food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

I heard good things about The Spot so we walked there from our hotel knowing we'd probably have a few drinks and came back disappointed only with the food that we had. The menu looked good, written like it would taste good, but the final product was just cheap fried food ...looked like fast food leftovers. We hit the bar upstairs and just drank away the disappointment. We had a good time but definately a place to meet, socialize, and drink. Not a good place for dinner...in my opinion

“Great spot for food/drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We loved The Spot! Fish & chips were excellent, they let my sister order a grilled cheese even though it was on the kid's menu and she isn't a kid, great ambiance right on Seawall. Would go back!

Food was good and atmosphere great. I had a hamburger and it was a good size and tasted great. We visit this place every time in Galveston.
