The Spot has great hamburgers and a great view. They have a good happy hour that includes discounts on appetizers.

Stopped into The Spot on a Tuesday afternoon during Happy Hour. Had a couple of beers and the Chicken Nachos which were really good in the bar. As the afternoon turned into evening the noise level went up, but we found a quiet table and enjoyed the sunset. Later went into the dessert area and got some awesome cheese cake.

Don't let all the bikes out front scare you off if you're not a biker. They don't bite and everyone is friendly. And if you're in the mood for an incredible burger... The Spot is the place to be!! The mushroom Swiss burger is killer!! Sit on the balcony and enjoy the food, folks and the ocean!!

It's enjoyable for ocean view, friendly service, and... More

Long summer lines indicate the popularity of this place. You can't beat the location or the view. Food is predictably good and consistent. It is sometimes noisy and often crowded, but we always return!

It is okay. The drinks are mixed with wine coolers. The food was great though! Our waitress had several tables so we didn't see her much. She was as good as she could be with her hands full of tables.

We visited the Spot after a cruise in Feb 2017. We are not big fans of deep fried seafood but this offering was pretty good. We come from Canada's east coast where deep fried seafood is common as well as pan fried and other cooking options. It was a good opportunity to sample the Gulf coast seafood and we enjoyed... More
