After leaving the seawall location on a bad note we were warmly greeted at the door of this location (the other locations manager had called ahead to this location for us) given a complimentary appetizer, and a delicious meal. We will be back!

We only split a couple of appetizers and had some wine. The shrimp ceviche was outstanding and the "tower" of crab, mango, and avocado was, if possible, even better. Decided to finish off with the dessert sampler -- who could choose among such beauties? -- and decaf. Throughout our server was helpful and always knew when to let us alone... More

We had our two golden retriever with us on vacation. The staff at the Olympia invited us in. They got water for the dogs and made all of us feel welcome. We went back twice and had great service and food both times. My wife ordered a dish that was prepared different than she thought it was. The waiter immediately... More

Didn't know it was a greek restaurant, which was a nice surprise. The food was very good. Perhaps best Gyro I have ever had.

We visited the Olympia restaurant at approximately 5400 seawall. Not sure it they are affiliated is not disregard, if they are it is a very good place to get some authentic greek cuisine. The waiter was a bit too friendly if that is possible but guess that is better than not friendly at all. Any way the food is good.... More

This was the second time we have eaten here. The atmosphere is nice. But for the price the food should be a lot better. The crab cake was not bad, but our entrees a seafood platter & stuffed shrimp were barely warm and not that great.

We arrived at a very busy time, as two cruise ships were delayed, and everyone seemed to be at Olympia. However, the service was great, and the appetizers that we ordered were exceptional. Awesome view too by the way!!

Three of us went in for a late lunch on a Sunday, busy happening place. The stuffed flounder was tender and tasty, the side of lump crab was perfect. It is not on the giant menu, I asked and our super great waitress said 'I will make that happen". Saganaki was lit and Opa! Fun place to watch the cruise... More

Loved our experience here dining with friends visiting from Michigan. Two of us had the Crab Stuffed Bossa fish dinner. It is a mild catfish per our Server. Creamy & flavorful sauce created a delicious entree. The other meals were Lasagne & Grilled Gulf Shrimp. Both were delicious as well. We will go back!!
