Did a day trip into Galveston and stopped into The Spot for lunch. It is an open air restaurant across from the beach, with cool beachy atmosphere. It was a blustery day, so they had plastic hanging down from the roof to help block the...More

We visited on a Sunday evening in November so thankfully there wasn't a crowd. Our food was fantastic but we ended up sitting in the bakery section because the other sections weren't that kid or elderly in-laws friendly. We enjoyed the bakery area, good music...More

This place is kind of odd. If you want a burger and a cocktail and you have kids you can't do it. Drinking is pretty much in "Bar area" one of 5 places, then you order your food in the actual "Spot" you can bring...More
