This is a great restaurant will good food at an affordable family price. Set upstairs on the deck and look out at the ocean and view traffic on seawall if you get the chance. Definitely a must-go-to place.

The Spot is an unusual set up. Ordering the food is a hassle. However it was in a great location with outside seating. The food was delicious and worth the wait. Although, an aroma of garbage scented the area. The staff were friendly and helpful....More

We beat the dinner rush so the wait wasn't too long. When you come in, you order your food at the counter, pay and find your seat. Everyone got some variation of their burgers and everyone said they were good. We were all stuffed by...More

The food was decent but due to a very large crowd the service was slow. We had a hard time finding a table on a week night. Place was very noisy. Good view of the Gulf though.

Took about 45 minutes after ordering to get our food. They missed one of the people in our party's order completely. There were pig ones begging for food at our table and flies everywhere. We had to sit outside because it was very full which...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
