Nothing beats a nice evening sitting on the patio at Olympia. One of the most relaxing evenings you will ever experience is waiting to be had! Make sure to order the lump crab cake - TO DIE FOR - and a bottle of pinot grigio! Take in the surroundings, let the delicious lump crab cake tickle your taste buds and... More

Great dinner with a great view. We were finishing dinner just as the sun was setting adding to the beautiful view. I ordered the baked stuffed shrimp advertised as "amazing." It was amazing. All from friends was please with their choices. We all had seafood, but my friend from Galveston also recommended the Greek choices. Service was great.

I have been coming here for years. It's a must when in Galveston and here's why... 1. The food: Diverse menu with options for everyone in the group. I strongly recommend splitting Papou's Mix as an appetizer for the table. You won't be disappointed. Everything I've tried here I've really enjoyed, from the crab ball poboy to the gyro to... More

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.
