Olympia Grill was highly recommended to us by our guide on our historic tour of Galveston and it certainly lived up to her praise. The margaritas were excellent. One of us ordered the grilled stuffed shrimp and said it was excellent. A friend and I shared the avocado Greek salad and the grilled scallops: FABULOUS! The sides we chose (Parmesan... More

Very good lunch spot to escape the standard 'fried something' served everywhere. The chicken pita and sweet potato fries were nice, but the star was the bottomless bowl of 'home made' chicken soup!

Our group of 4 had Greek salads, gyros, and pitas. All were huge and fresh and delicious. Our waiter was especially attentive and quick to refresh drinks, etc. You do want to try this place!

Service was quick and friendly and the food absolutely great. My husband had a mixed plate that came with a variety of tasty appetizers and I had grilled fish that was devine. Best of all, our 2 year old really liked the food too!

I had the Gyro and it was ok, but then I've had much better. I waited a few minutes at the front entrance before anyone recognized that I needed to be seated. This was about 1:00 pm and they were not busy. One I was seated it was several minutes before I was waited on. But at that point the... More

Very good food. Nice decor. Good service. Greek food was tasty, especially the hummus and gyro meat. Sample platters rocked. Meat pizza was amazing. Nice place.

Went into the Olympia Grill to get a Gyro Pita sandwich to go. I told the cashier that what I wanted and she gave me a take out menu anyway. A group of people came in after me and she seated them first. Then another group of people came in and she seated them. Then another group of people came... More

Our family came here on a Thursday night, and were seated right away. It was a bustling dinner time. Service was good , and the food came quickly. Portions were average, but perfect for our family. We ordered gyro pitas and the beef souvlaki pita. All were tender and came with side dishes. Ambiance was good, restaurant was clean and... More

I have never tried Greek food. This restaurant was excellent. I had the Eggplant Parmesan and a side of fruit. The Eggplant was really good. I loved the fruit! My husband tried the pork and liked it. Great seasoning and very juicy. We split the dessert sampler wich was good as well.
