Delicious appetizer and entrees. Sampler dessert provided perfect ending. Granted our request for table by window. Most definitely will return.

We have visited the Olympia Grill on Seawall but not the one at Pier 21. This one seems a bit more upscale in appearance but the menu is the same. The food is delicious and the service is excellent! I had the Greek Salad with Avocado and gyro meat. There was a large square of feta cheese and the house... More

We ate here the evening of July 19, 2014. The service and food were excellent. By the time we arrived to eat dinner, it was late and I was concerned about "heavy" food. But the vegetarian plate was delightfully delicious with a nice variety of well proportioned items. Everyone in our party of 10 was pleased with their order. This... More

Great views, great food selection and reasonable prices. It is the best brunch on the island for the money. The service was good, but not great. Ask for a water view table to see the boats go by. The do have a pet friendly section outdoors on the patio.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner on the Galveston Harbor. The hummus and pita was exceptional as a appetizer. Everyone makes hummus, but Olympia's was velvety, garlicky and lemony! This fine restaurant offers "light" portions; very good for the waistline. More and more diners are choosing healthy options and i really love to see "light" portions. As a non-light entree, the...

ate here over July 4th and was not impressed. The service was great, but the food was just OK. We ordered Calamari (appetizer) and an entrée to share and our entrée came out before our Calamari. The food was good but cold, which is weird since it came out fairly quickly.

We went for dinner and had fish and salads. Everything was fresh and delicious. Our server was wonderful: he gave us some good suggestions, was very attentive, and gave us lots of tips for things to do in the area. The restaurant is in a nice location, right on the harbor. If the weather is decent they have a lovely... More

The food took a long time to come but what we didn't like is the inattentiveness of our waitstaff and the fact that they ignored us and didn't even tell us that our food would take awhile to be served.
