Great Greek food

So what do you do when you're on vacation in Galveston but you're allergic to fish? You go to the Olympia Grill and have a feast. I had the best gyro I've had in a very long time there -- the meat was seriously flavorful and melt-in-your-mouth tender; the tzatziki sauce was sublime. Thinking I... read more

This place has an ample menu, although when ordering check what you actually get. The lunch menu is a little confusing as you get choice of sides (fruit or soup or salad or veg). The food was average nothing to rave about, the squid was a little dry, small bits of pitta for ample size houmous- had to ask for... More

This is our favorite place to eat, not just favorite in Galveston but our favorite anywhere. The food is fantastic, the service the best, and the atmosphere just awesome. If you like Greek food don't miss it.

My wife and I visited the resturant on 49th and Seawall Blvd and it was not busy at 5.30 pm. Our server was very attentive and nice and our meal was good. However, there were a few issues with the soup that accompanied my entrée and the portions of my wife's dinner and my dinner. The soup that I had... More

I never thought I'd equate Galveston with anything other than seafood; however, I stand corrected--while still enjoying sea fare. This place is an unassuming Restaurant in a small shopping center on the Seawall. We arrived before 6:00 on a Saturday and it was packed. I see why!! Had the appetizer platter, chicken piccata, lamb chops, and grilled oysters. There was... More

The staff were nice, atmosphere laid back, space was clean, but most of the food was just alright. For an appetizer we got the crab cakes. They were good. Not doughy, but no chunks. The sauce that came drizzled on it was good. My husband ordered the Greek salad and gumbo combo. The salad was really small ... like one... More

Hey had a good selection of food, and the food was great my only complaint was not having Greek potatoes and the confusion of the menu and the waitress. Other then that food was great we had lunch and it was good I recommend this place and would go back again.
