One of the best restaurants in town. Plenty of options in the menu. Fresh vegetables and well cooked and presented meals, both fish or meat. Exquisitive appetizers and desserts. We enjoy every time we go there.

We had breakfast at Olympia while staying at the Harbor House Hotel. It was OK - coffee was awful, and it was a very small cup of coffee! Considering the restaurant was voted best in Galveston in 2014, I wasn't overly impressed.
