“Delicious!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

We were in Hilton Head getting ready to leave for Savannah and the maintenance man recommended this restaurant. Coincidently, we ran right into it shortly after arriving in Savannah. We had the Souvlaki dinner with a Greek dinner salad. It was The best Greek food I've had since I was in Greece. Prices were reasonable as well.

“Greek option on River Street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Hubby and I had dinner at the Olympia Cafe on River Street. We were seated quite promptly and our server was courteous. The atmosphere is not my taste, in that I do like enough light to actually see the menu!

My Greek salad was large with good dressing, but it was long on iceberg lettuce, so I ate the top and left the rest. My gyro sandwich was good, if just a tad dry. We finished the meal with a serving of baklava which was really great.

The prices were good for this area, so the Olympia Cafe is worth a visit.

“A great choice for dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Our family had a short time to visit the Savannah riverfront and initially were going to eat at a different place. But it looked kind of shady once we arrived. We happened upon Olympia and we are lovers of Greek cuisine so we went in....

Best Greek food we have had in decades, and we live in Baltimore, home of Greektown, with lots of fine Greek restaurants. Our kids enjoyed, the service was great, and the homemade grape leaves were superb. Also, try the avolemmeno soup. Yummy!
