This place is a hidden gem in Groton! It has a variety of great options on the menu. Every night there is some sort of special or something going on. Whether it's ladies night or Trivia or BOGO burgers, this is the place to be. The manager has hired a wonderful staff and the service is top notch.

Lots of choices are on the menu at The Spot Cafe and Restaurant. We are not into sports bars, but this place was really OK. We sat is a somewhat quieter booth away from the madding sports crowd. We had nachos and queso after our dinner when we felt like sitting and chatting longer. For dinner we had had beef... More

Nothing fancy. Just good bar food and nightly specials in a blue collar bar. Good service. Free, salty popcorn. Good people watching. Trivia night. Done.

Cozy restaurant with good food. Menu is average. They offer a two for one burger special on Tuesdays and a prime rib night on Thurs. My daughter enjoyed beef enchiladas with beans and rice. It looked like a lot of food but she finished. My husband had a cheese steak with house made chips and a side of a jus.... More

My husband goes here all the time and loves the food. Chicken parmigiano is his favorite at this time. Today I had the beef stew, which is incredible. I highly recommend it when they have it as a special.

Hubby had linguini with clams, scallops and shrimp, loved it! My lobster grilled cheese was ok. The lobster was dry and overlooked, tasty. The server was great. All in all. 4.75 out of 5.

This is a local cafe, with quite a few cars there on weekends. Had tried this local place about six months earlier as part of a retirement party, but wanted to check it out as a couple. This was a Saturday night, before 7 PM. Seated right away at a table by hostess. We were the only deuce top occupied... More

We are sorry you had a less than stellar visit with us on Saturday. The ribs we serve are requested more than not with bbq on the side so we made a decision to do that for all of them. The popcorn that we have is a self serve "freebee" as it has been for 25 years. This is likely... More
