Huh? – I am not sure the last person who wrote a review of the Spot knew where he/she was. The Spot does not have a Valet service... It is Camille's (the Italian restaurant) right next to the Spot that has the Valet service... sorry that you did not realize this.. (Like a sports bar is going to have valet parking). Anyways... I'll write my review of the Spot... I have gone there and had pretty crappy service and I have gone there and had pretty great service... I would recommend going there more than once before writing a review.. I like the spot because it is a neighborhood bar and I kinda get the feeling like you are in a pub in an old english town when I am there.. If you want pure american cuisine (hamburgers, fries, cold beer) this is just as good, if not better, than most out there... If you are expecting five star dining.... then go eat at the overly priced Elways.... what else would you expect?
Go ahead and come to this restaurant...to get your car towed! – I actually witnessed the valet of this restaurant yelling at a lady. Apparantly, she had parked her car in the 3/4 empty parking lot and the valet took it upon himself to call the towing company. Besides feeling disturbed by this interaction, the food and service at this establishment are way below what one would expect for a night out on the town. I would recommend going to old chicago or someplace on that level; at least you would know the quality of food and service are somewhat controlled. This place is dingy and unkept in appearance and the service is slow and condescending ( the valet even feels the need to yell at people!) You won't have to pay for parking at most places at or above this level, and you won't have to worry about a service person screaming at you.
Contrary to the above "rater" (restaurant owner?) Yes, it is your restarurant that is horrible. The other one may also be just as bad or worse, but it just makes you look even more pathetic when you attempt to point the finger at someone else! I AM talking about attending a sports bar, and I AM talking about a crazed valet attendant that DID engage in a shouting match with a PAYING CUSTOMER. Maybe YOU are the people that should be calming down "camille's" if their staff is behaving that way; isn't it always easy to blame someone else?
Not the spot you want. Out spot; out, out! – Please avoid this place if you have any taste in food or atmosphere. We just went on a busy game night and the service was slow beyond belief, the food was cold and tasteless, the place was overcrowded and loud, and even the valet was laughably pompous (this dive of a place actually has the nerve to charge for valet parking!) Skip completely and drive further into town for more class and better food. Not recommended for couples (too loud), not recommended for families (not kid friendly), and overall just not a pleasing place.
real people – Not a whole lot of pretionsion. Food is good, drinks are generally ample. That's all I ask. Abby on Monday day is great.
A neighborhood hang out, with dogs – Spot Bar and Grill is a corner bar and restaurant with some character--brick building, some wood booths and a nice bar. Really nice to have something like that in your neighborhood. However, I just wish the place would strive to be a bit more than a sports bar. The onion rings are touted to be the best in town, but I found them to be no different than most that I've had. I made the annoying mistake of ordering the macaroni and cheese which was about the same as the stuff from a box by Kraft, and it cost a whopping $4.50. I couldn't believe they would have the audacity to charge so much for that!! The grilled cheese is a good-sized sandwhich. There are good specials on food and drink during the week, but not on the weekend. Parking can be tight, but not always a problem. Get a booth and get cozy, or sit out on the covered patio and hang out on a sunday afternoon with your dog on a leash within eyesight. Often crowded on weekends.
A neighborhood hangout with classic burgers and friendly bartenders. – In Short
The mixed crowd and kicked-back atmosphere makes this a great spot for burgers. The half-pound masterpieces are made to order. Don't skip the fries, which are crispy on the outside, steaming soft on the inside. While you wait for your order, munch on a basket of chips, salsa and guacamole. For a burger alternative, order the Big Dog with chili or the chicken cordon bleu sandwich. Several microbrews are available, as well as bottled beers.
Good Local Burger Pub + 90 – The Spot is a great asset to the neighborhood. Fairly good stuff on tap, a good burger, and a friendly neighborhood crowd. A good place to catch the big game, assuming you arrive early. On the upside: has a nice outside patio seating in good weather, 90 Shilling on Tap. On the downside: tends to be smoky, and not a great view of the tubes from all angles. Hint to owners: if you make a homey fresh, authentic salsa or guacamole, you won't be able to keep them away!
Great food and service! – MMMMmmm, almost everything on the menu is great and reasonably priced. Try the grilled chicken wraps, great burgers, or chili cheese dog and you won't be disappointed. The best onion rings in town too!
Enjoyable – A nice easy place away from downtown but not too far away. Great for Sunday Football or after a run at Wash park. I wish they had pitchers and the food is decent bar food. Next to Carmines like the show "Cheers" is next to Melvilles.
What a find. – Best burger in Denver. The place remindes of a tavern you would find back in the Midwest. A friendly place,in a quiet neghberhood, with good service and great burgers. Not to mention a good selection of beers to wash down the meal of your choice.
