After all the great reviews I was looking forward to some good seafood. Went in for a late lunch but the menu was the same as dinner. I got the shrimp sampler with 4 fried, 4 grilled, and 4 stuffed shrimp. Not usually a fan of stuffed shrimp but of the three it was the best. The grilled was so... More

We ate lunch here after a tip from a local. Man, it was the best meal we ate on the island. Eating inside the air conditioning looking out over the harbor was so relaxing. My husband had the fried fish which was fresh and cooked to perfection. Granddaughter got the pizza and after tasting her papa's fish asked for it.... More

Be careful as there are two Olympia Grills. The one we wanted and finally found after going to the first one, is actually on the pier. This is a classy restaurant, with a fantastic meanu. You do not have to dress up and you can sit inside or outside. We chose outside. There is a roof and some shades that... More

I don't even know where to start....the amazing food (the greek salad is amazing) or the stellar service we received from Niki (sp?) both times we lunched there during our stay. It was the best food and service we experienced throughout our time in Galveston.

My fiancé and I ate here today after shopping at The Strand and loved it! I had the gyro plate and he had the grilled chicken pita. The tzatziki sauce was absolutely perfect and refreshing, and the parmesan potatoes I had on the side were wonderfully seasoned. The gyro meat wasn't dry or anything, which can happen easily, so I...

The food at Olympia is a little different from all the other seafood places in Galveston in that it has a greek flair to it. We found it to be very good with a good variety. The seafood was very fresh and the wait staff was very attentive even though we had a fairly large group dining. The setting on... More

Friends and I went for Happy Hour. We were waited on promptly. The service was good and for an upscale place had great happy hour prices. Drinks could have been a little strong. Overall great. Would go again.

This is a regular stop for my husband and I when we decide to do a mini road trip from Houston. We've never made a reservation and have never had to wait. All little busy at night but service is still pretty good. It's very nice being by the water and sometimes there is a belly dancer, which is interesting... More
