This restaurant serves up standard fare, but it is consistently overpriced for what it is. The food is mediocre at best. The lentil soup is fantastic if you are feeling under the weather, and would like to have some hot soup...but this is about the only outstanding item.

The food and drinks were very good. I had a bowl of clam chowder and long island ice tea. Both were very good. Friendly service and outstanding atmosphere.

This is a great casual dining experience with something for any palette. The menu has everything from hummus to burgers and it is all served with great care. Best of all, lingering is not frowned upon so you can thoroughly enjoy the complex flavors present in several of the dishes. Overall great experience!

I have been to the Olympia Grill many times. Both locations are excellent, however, the location at Pier 21 is more scenic and has a larger menu selection. I love the Greek Salads with either salmon or tuna. The Gyro is, also, wonderful. Olympia, also, has a great selection of Greek beers and wine. The servers are always very cheerful... More

The food is fresh, well cooked, and Greeky! The service was superb! Only complaint is the grilled chicken was pretty bland. But the dressing was amazing. The roasted potatoes were wonderful, and the gyros quite good. I would go back for sure.

The pita triangles were succulent, the food was awesome. We ate at many restaurants in Galveston and this was clearly the best by far.

The Lamb chop appetizer was absolutely delicious. The rest of the food, not so much. The oyster feast was strange, Fried oysters with tortilla chips and chopped tomatoes (?) was a mess. My husband ordered some duo and got one stuffed crab and two regular sized shrimps for $26. Our waitress was very sweet but clueless. This restaurant has a... More
