The fried fish fingers and waffle fries were very good. One order was enough for two, so be sure you are hungry ! Great scenic view of the Beach.

Went in for dinner with my parents and had a great time. Everything we ordered tasted great and portions where just right. We will definitely be back

So when you are visiting Galveston "The Spot" on Galveston's famed Seawall Blvd is a must stop when you visit.

The whole restaurant & bar is a series of multi-level covered patio's with a perfect view of the Gulf of Mexico and West Beach, you can also so Pleasure Pier from The Spot.

I highly recommend their amazing Texas Sized burgers and Onion Rings the are simply amazing, and wash the burger with some of the finest Texas Craft draft beers that they have on tap.

If beer is not your thing then head over to the Margarita bar for some of there delicious margaritas.....so many flavors to choose from you may wanna take your time!

The Spot is truly rustic relaxing venue, a place just to chill out and people watch or just watch the waves come rolling in, you will love it also this venue is smoking friendly.

Enjoy y'all

We decided to come to Galveston on Sunday the day before a Monday cruise to keep from driving in Houston traffic. I can see where the set up may be a bit confusing for some. I had been here one other time so kind of new. The food was pretty good as it was before and plentiful.

We stayed in Galveston the night before our cruise left. We arrived around 7pm and the dining options are limited at that time.

We wanted something we couldn’t eat in Dallas and decided on The Spot. Like several previous reviewers stated it is hard to figure out where to go and the menu being at the door then having to find where you want to order is a bit disorganized. We had Chase take our order and he was very friendly and outgoing.

The multiple beepers was weird. One for the chips & salsa that were “delivered to us” (not that great) and then one for the rest of our meal that we had to go get ourselves.

Kids meals were good, fish & chips was ok (a bit over fried) and the ribeye sandwich had to be sent back. Was ordered medium but came out rare. They didn’t give any attitude when we asked for it to be re cooked and someone even came back and checked on us when they had to do that.

Watching the staff interact it’s clear that organization is not their strong suit. The place was only about half full so I’m curious to see what it’s like when it’s jam packed.

All in all - the decor is unique, the staff is friendly. It didn’t wow us but it wasn’t horrible either. I like to think I’d go back now that I know what to expect.
