You can’t go wrong at The Spot, Galveston Island’s premier beachfront dining and entertainment destination. Dive into a mouthwatering burger or fresh seafood, grab a beer and find a sweet spot to relax inside or out on our multi-level beachfront patios. Whether you want to catch the game on one of our many HDTVs or enjoy the sparkling views of Gulf of Mexico, every seat’s the best seat in the house.
In 1998, here lay a vacant lot and there lay three vacant houses and herein lay a great idea. The land was prime, yet undeveloped, and the houses were set to be demolished. Our founders set out to save the houses — picking them up, bringing them here and building a restaurant from them. After many months of hard work, their dreams became a reality and The Spot was born.
In 2002, The Spot was purchased by local resident and BOI (Born on Island) Dennis Byrd. He began here when we originally opened, working his way up from dishwasher to delivery boy, cashier to cook. He learned the ropes of the restaurant business, and accomplished his dream of owning a restaurant by purchasing the only restaurant he had ever worked in.
With Dennis at the helm, The Spot has grown, expanding year after year to become Island Famous. We introduced the laidback island style of Tiki Bar in 2005, followed shortly thereafter by our trio of concept bars: Squeeze Ritas & Tequilas, RumShack, and SideYard. Each venue offers its own unique look, atmosphere and appeal, giving you, our valued guest, five concepts to choose from — all in one convenient Spot!
We strive to be “Beachfront Day and Night Done Right,” and we hope that you find our property, well, Island Famous. We’re committed to improving our service, products and property to best suit the needs of our guests.
