    The Spot is a Galveston staple. You can sit out on the deck and enjoy the sunshine all while getting everything from burgers to homemade shakes. I love that you can bring your dog and sit outside.

    Love eating in the bar area, looking out over the water. Great atmosphere, we eat there at least 2 times a week. So it goes without saying, the food is great too! See you at The Spot.

    Happy hour in general is great. Shrimp kisses, chicken nachos and fried calamari are very good happy hour appetizers. Wait staff is very good and always smiling. Thanks for that!

    The Spot is a rarity, an establishment which consistently has good food even through changes of ownership. Go by car, by foot, by bike, skateboard, etc., but be sure to have a bite at The Spot.

    Had the red fish/shrimp pop boy blackened and it was awesome. Get the onion rings! It was a cluster trying to pick up the food but the employees took care of you.

    Burgers at The Spot come with several delicious pre-selected trimmings, or you can have a Spot Burger and pile it full of your favorite veggies from the Fixins' Bar.

    It doesn’t matter what we get while we’re here, we will always grab a side of frickles to go with it. The fried pickles come with a spicy ranch sauce, both of which are amazing.
