I must admit, I was a bit demanding that nite but our waitress was very friendly and made everything possible. The food was good and the view on the harbour is nice. If sitting outside I would recommend to use mosquito repellent.

Great food and great views of the water. Super clean restrooms and great customer service we really enjoyed the huge portions prices a little too much for food.

We were walking along the pier trying to decide where to eat and settled on The Olympia Grill. This was an excellent choice. The service was great, the food delicious and we were able to watch the sun set out the window. There is indoor and outdoor seating available. The food was reasonably priced especially considering the amount of food... More

Stopped in for late lunch. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They graciously combined several items and the food was delicious. It was our second visit and highly recommend the Olympic Grill.

We were looking for a pet friendly restaurant but we found so much more. The Harbor side (cruise ship) setting was a perfect backdrop for a sunset meal on their pet friendly patio. What drew us back 4 times during an 8 day visits to Galveston Island was their delicious and varied menu options. Their fried shrimp was by far... More

We ordered the grilled chicken pita and the falafel pita and both were delicious. After the hummus appetizer, we didn't have room to finish the fries. Kids' menu mini pizza was a big hit, too. The staff were very friendly and helpful with our toddler and when our parking lot ticket came up missing. We'll definitely visit again on our... More

The restaurant was very quiet this night, and thus service was very quick. Our server was new, and it was possibly from this that we received our app, soup, and meal all within about 10 minutes. That was the only negative. Food was very good, portions were HUGE and the price was just right.

Good service, great atmosphere we sat outside during a heavy rain and enjoyed watching the comings and goings on the pier. Our parking was validated, so free which was good. The only negative I would say was the desserts were a disappointment. We had the sampler plate and really didnt think any of them were very tasty.

Wanted seafood since we were in Galveston. Olympia at Pier 21 was a great choice. Highly recommend the Saganaki (cheese flambe with Pita bread) as an appetizer. It was as good as what I have had in Chicago's Greek Town. Food was great, fish cooked perfectly, and the price was excellent for the quality.
