The Spot is a great and lively joint on the beach, attended by tourists and locals, you can tell. Family friendly, and fun for dates obviously. Saturday night was extremely busy, but Jasmine W. at food pick up really helped to keep the food coming,...More

Over the years I have had many dishes for either lunch or dinner and it is a strong contender as a top restaurant on the island. Sure it looks more like a bar on the outside, but it truly is far more. This latest stop...More

Have been here before, this time I order the Greek salad with grilled chicken. It was very good. My husband had the fried shrimp and the wings, also good. Will definitely come again if in area.

I see why this place was voted best burger in Galveston. I got the Ralph Burger. The bbq sauce was amazing and I also thought their seasoned waffle fries were great! The view of the gulf was also quite enjoyable while eating there.

The Spot is my favorite burger "spot" in Galveston. The burgers are made to order and the waffle fries and "frickles" (fried pickles) never disappoint. It is a popular stop especially on the weekends so be prepared to wait. You can find seating in several...More

We were driving along Seawall Blvd and just stopped. The drinks were very refreshing and the tuna tacos were out of this world.

Denise, Everything on the first level is wheelchair accessible. In the main parking lot off seawall blvd, there is a wheelchair accessible ramp to enter the patio that most of our guests use. It is near the handicap parking... More
Had your gumbo yesterday. Was not much better than warmed up thickened chicken soup Vs Roux. If it comes in a can I would not advertise it. If you are making it in your kitchen someone needs to look into this.

ML, I am sorry for the late response to your question. We did make the Chicken & Sausage Gumbo as well as the Roux in house. However, since the roux was produced inconsistently, we decided to remove the Gumbo from the menu... More
