Crazy busy place. Worth the wait. Poor Boy sandwich was huge and overflowing with shrimp. We were there on a Saturday night that was rainy and it was still packed. Could only imagine what a warm day would bring.

We always have our first and last meals at The Spot. My kids love the Spot, kid friendly. The seafood is good and so are the burgers.

Everyone here is on vacation, you can tell by the pace and the universally good mood. Directly across from the beach, this place is very informal; flip flops, beach wear. There are five eating options at The Spot. I had shrimp tacos that sounded much...More

Okay so in all honesty the pina coladas are good, but small. Just be aware. The blackened shrimp po boy is very good, so are the chicken nachos. I was disappointed in the shrimp tacos and the mahi mahi tacos. Both lacked flavor and the...More

For it being our first time and being completely clueless as to how they ran things here, it was not enjoyable. We stood in a very long line, then to our surprise we had to find our own table... We literally stood, watched, and waited...More
