We went with friends and were delighted that they were serving the whole flounder. It was delicious along with two sides. Very large portions. They also had the soft shell crab which made one of our friends very happy. Other items were also very good and so was the service. It was Saturday night of Labor Day weekend but the... More

I finally got the opportunity to dine at The Olympia Grill at Pier 21 on this of many visits to the island. I lucked out because there was no cruise and the weather was rainy. I was seated immediately near a dockside window and the view was lovely and calm. I ordered seared tuna encrusted in black and white sesame... More

We stopped by here for evening cocktails, and to watch the sun go down. We sat at the outdoor bar with a harbor view...it was very pretty. And, the icing on the cake? Tons of dolphins were swimming and goofing off! It was like we had drinks and a show. The bartenders were incredibly nice, pleasant and attentive...great folks. If... More

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...
