Tucked back into a small shopping area on Seawall Blvd. in Galveston is a great food find---Greek specialties done to a turn!!!! Everyone sampled something different including the lunch fish special, the falafel pita and a delicious gyro. Sides were good, too and though desserts looked inviting, we were satisfied with our entrees. There is a second location downtown but... More

While in Galveston recently, we needed to find a pet friendly restaurant for lunch and came upon the Olympia Grill on Seawall Boulevard. They are in a small strip mall with a patio for outdoor seating. Most of the patio was in the shade - a must during this time of the year (September). We both ordered the Wednesday special... More

This is one of my go-to places for a healthy lunch. Great Greek salad. Generous lunch portions. Reasonable price. Pretty good service for lunchtime.

We went to the one near the cruise ship terminal. We had a very nice view of the bay from our table. The cocktails were as good as you can get anywhere. I had the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp and it was completely delicious. This is a great place to eat in Galveston.

Good quality food, good service, and fair prices. The sampler offered a good variety and everything was very good. We had a diner that wasn't feeling all that well and the staff insisted on chicken soup to help. Gyro pizza (couldn't resist) was decent. Probably wouldn't get that again when other things were so good.

We got there late (about 9:30 PM), and the waiter was kind enough to let us sample the creamy chicken soup. We all had very light meals since it was so late, but the atmosphere as good, and they offered good salads and appetizers for a late-night snack. Pricing is fair, and location is very central to the beach.

The Olympia on the Seawall is a nice change of pace from tourist Galveston. No real Gulf views, but plenty of convenient free parking. Family run by real Greeks, the service was friendly and easily offered explanations of the various dishes. The Zeus combination appetizer platter could easily serve 4 and was very good. We shared the Greek "lasagna" dinner... More

It was a good change of pace from all of the seafood. The food was better than average, but it's a little pricey.

Service was slow. Menu was confusing, large, and sides did not seem to compliment the meals. Prices were high. I ordered a spinach lasagne dish with roasted potatoes. They served it to me with a side of plain ketchup. I had to ask for tzaziki sauce. We ordered pita with hummus and got no olive oil and only to small... More
