Last night a girl was harassing me because I was a Seahawks fan. She would purposefully follow me around the bar [this happened a total of 4 times] and ask people what I was talking about so she could start a fight. I do not know this girl. She was friends with the Bouncer though- I know because I saw them talking for about 15 minutes in between her harassment. On the last occasion I was literally trying my hardest to stay away from her and she followed me outside, interrupted our conversation which was awkward to those involved, then she just started yelling at me, ended up spitting at me, and pushed me - at that point the bouncer came outside and started yelling at me with his finger pointed in my face. He kept yelling, "this is still MY property for one more month so you do what I say" - the point of having a bouncer is to de-escalate situations and possibly interfere when necessary. He was escalating the situation beyond reasonable measure and causing a greater problem than the one that existed. However, this guy seemed to think that because she was 4'11" and I am 5'8" that there was no way she could be the one instigating. This girl committed 2 class 4 misdemeanors and I was the one ejected. My regular bartender Amy who knows that we don't start fights just stood there as if she was afraid of him too and didn't defend us as did another member of their staff who knows us very well. This bar is scheduled to shut down in a month. Maybe that is why this bouncer's behavior was so out of line. Or maybe bad behavior like this is WHAT MADE THEM LOSE PROFIT. Not excusable. They definitely charged me for the drink I had just ordered. So, I guess they got their profit anyways.
Sports, drinks, games – Nice, well-stocked sports bar with a great location. Parking can be tricky on the weekends. Lots of attractive women in their mid 20s and dudes in their late 30s
ok place. But damn it, why the hell do they think my boyfriend and I are drunk at midnight on Thursday nite. We order 6 drinks (3 each) and were charged 11. When I went to the manager, he fixed right away, again. WHY. WHO'S behind this and why the hell is it still going on.
Buyer, BEAWARE. CHECK YOUR RECEIPTS...OVERCHARGE AND POCKETING MONEY SEEMS TO BE THE NORM HERE
Great Karaoke – A group of us attending a Microsoft conference met up for Karaoke. We had a great time singing, playing pool, and drinking. I'm sure we will be back next year!
Looking for a place for a Rehearsal Gathering? – We held our son's rehearsal gathering there last night and were so very pleased! It was an amazing environment in our own private lounge and the service could not have been better! Thanks so much for everything ..... !!
Will not try again – I've tried this place three times and the service is so terrible I can't believe it is still open. There are happy hour menus on the table which would lead you to believe a server might come take an order. The first time I was there, someone did get our food and drink orders, but didn't return once we had our food. The food is sub-par. I don’t think they have a kitchen, just re-heating abilities. The second time I went we sat there for 10 minutes before we left. The place was nearly empty and there were two or three employees who were chatting but never acknowledged us. The last time I went we had to go to the bar for drinks, although one table did have a server attending to them. The staff isn't friendly. It seems like they have friends who hang out there (who probably wrote the good reviews) that they talk to instead of taking orders or checking on their patrons. I wanted to like this place because it is such a good location for my big group to meet for happy hour, but the service is such a joke it isn’t worth it.
We are actually happy to read these reviews now-a-days because The Spot has gone through a complete face-lift. Completely new management that hosts great weekly activites and events and the friendliest staff you can find in Bellevue, we guarantee it! Check out our new website or come on in to see for yourself :)
Love this place – I've been to this place a few times over the past year. The staff is always great, the environment is upbeat and I always have a good time there.
Fun place to drink with friends – This place is fun, (the owner is great!!) and cute bartenders. What more can you ask for? My friend had her b-day there not too long ago, lotsa fun! Oh, and I like the Marilyn bathroom!
Great Corporate Event Space – Last month I held a Corporate Event at the Spot Off Main. The staff at this place is simply unbelievable! They went above and beyond to ensure that the event was a success right from the minute I started planning up until the actual event. They offered a range of activities for our attendees including billiards, darts, local beer tastings, video games, a jukebox and a variety of sports/movies to watch. The food and drink were great, the entertainment was fabulous and the service and price were unbeatable. I would definitely recommend this venue to others event planners or companies looking to plan a fun and relaxed event!
Relaxed Atmosphere for after work – I stopped by The Spot off Main on Friday night and had a great time. I was looking for a place that I could go for a drink, after work and I am pretty sure I found that place. I was greeted by a jolly bartender who got my beer and asked me how my day went. I did not take the time to play pool but I will come back a different day when I have time to do that - the tables were really nice though. Happy hour went from 4 to 8, I could not stay that long on this Friday but I was told that they are moving the happy hour even longer on Friday nights to 4 to 10 WOW.
