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.

After a few days eating out in greasy establishment, my boyfriend and I decided to go to Olympia Grill for a healthier meal. One, the slogan cracks me up and I love their logo. Two, I love Mediterranean food. Their menu had a lot of lighter options and lots of vegetarian friendly options. I ended up ordered their porkchop dish,... More

We discovered the Olympia Grill on our last visit. It is right on the Seawall, next to the Holiday Inn Resort. It is a favorite with locals, we are told. The gyros was terrific, and along with the Greek salad, made a fantastic lunch. We liked it so much we bought the salad dressing and a pound of the gyros... More

It was a cool, foggy evening so I started with the chicken soup, which was very nice. My server was new, and though trying very hard to please, managed to mix up my main dish order. I know this kind of thing happens, and what matters to me is how they handle it... and they handled it perfectly. The manager... More

We had dinner with some friends here and tried out some new dishes. The Gyro Pita is very good. Meat is extremely tender with a good seasoning. It is a very good portion not too big and not small whatsoever. The grilled shrimp with rice was nice. Fresh local shrimp served with some veggies. Very plain and simple plate yet... More

Glad that I found this place, since not all Greek restaurants in and around Houston have octopus in their menu. The grilled octopus appetizer was excellent. For the main dish I tried the grilled fish special. The white fish and potatoes were very good.

The fish was prepared perfectly, not over cooked nor under cooked. Capers made it a little salty but did not detract from the expert preparation. The server was very attentive, the food served hot, I would highly recommend this establishment.
