Visiting Seneca while Clemson was playing for the ACC championship, my husband and I dropped in on the Spot on the Alley for supper and the game. Seneca is pretty quiet even on Saturday night and this bar/restaurant fits the town. The clientele skews older and the exuberance is restrained so you don't get blasted out by noise and frat...

Went there for the first time with friends. Unfortunately, we were unaware it was Karaoke night and we were sitting right next to a very large speaker when they started. We couldn't hear anything after that. The waitress was literally shouting when talking to us. We asked if the speaker could be turned down just a bit, and we were... More

Good food, great service, good drinks. Fun bands and dancing. And on Thursday nights during Jazz on the Alley, you can sit outside, listen to tunes, have a drink and eat some good bar food.

Food is good, service is fast and it is a relaxed environment. Good place to go it you want to just sit relax and have a bite to eat, while playing trivia or meet some new people.

We came to The Spot after the Clemson Football game to grab some pub food and watch college football on TV. Atmosphere is good and a decent crowd at both the bar and at tables. We had the Black and Blue burger and buffalo chicken fingers and a pitcher of Stella Artois. We enjoyed both until we saw the bill... More

We saw the positive reviews on trip advisor and wanted to give it a try. We sat at a vacant table, and waited around for about 15 minutes and no one ever approached our table to take an order so we left

Best burger I've ever had! I had the turkey burger, and loved every bite. My friend had one of the wraps and also really enjoyed it. I also have a beef allergy, and they were very careful cooking my burger. They also have a gluten free menu. I am so excited to find a good burger! Fun place, check them... More

Well, we were planning to eat at another restaurant, but it was closed on Monday, as was almost every other place on the street. So this was it. There weren't but a few others there since it was about 2:00 in the afternoon. We ordered a Reuben wrap and a single order of curly fries. We should have split the... More
