The staff was not at the door to meet us and we weren't really sure what to do. It was like fast food and we pretty much served ourselves after we put the order in at the cashier. The servers were not attentive at all. The staff seemed a little sad and on attentive and we actually waited a really... More

We came here for dinner and were surprised to find counter service and seat yourself. You can not order drinks (except beer and wine) anywhere but in the bar and your children aren't allowed in the bar and you can't leave the bar with the drink. If I had known to expect this, I would have been fine with it,... More

Huge line, but they were very efficient. Loved everything from the fried pickles to the seared ahi fish tacos. Try to stop in for Happy Hour for good drink deals.

We went on Saturday night for dinner. We were randomly recommended it by someone at the outlet mall and we were glad we listened to them. It was really busy though. A very long line waiting to get it. But I took it as a good sign and despite not wanting to be waiting so long, we did. All five... More

It is very large with many nooks and crannies, seating indoors and outdoors. We were directed to the restaurant area by a friendly employee. Ev ery employee we... More

As usual, The Spot was a friendly and accommodating place. Sat in the Tiki Bar and Meaghan was bartending. Never had to wait on anything and her wonderful attitude and smile make it all worthwhile.

We used to enjoy The Spot much more, when they carried oysters and good seafood. But now, they just basically sell hamburgers. Nice atmosphere however, since they are right on the Seawall and have a great view of the beach.
