Been coming here with my wife and kids for some years now and this time didn't disappoint again. Seems we always have a great meal here and the views of the bay are wonderful as well. The avacado shrimp appetizer is one of our favorites. The gyros are always good, but I wanted to try a little something different today.... More

Stopped by for a quick snack and a drink in the afternoon. Friendly staff and good food quality. The crab cakes were delicious which we washed down with a local beer.

After going on a dophin tour our group of girls was starving, and we popped in to this place because they offered both lunch and brunch food! Our server tried very hard, but they definitely got busier while we were there, which of course makes her job that much harder. Overall, she was very sweet, and quick to fix anything.... More

I have visited several times over the last 2 years. My last visit was in June 2016. This is my favorite outdoor seating restaurant when I visit Galveston. The food is overall good and my favorites is the lamb shank. Service is good and the menu selections are varied in case you are not in the mood for the Greek... More

It's a Greek place; go with either if the lamb dishes, you will not be disappointed! I would however skip the desserts here and head somewhere else. Not bad, just sort of bland.

Enjoyed the large selection of Greek options! Spilt the 2 course mix that overstated it's "serves 2-4" claim. Tasted great with good variety, but I'd say it only feeds 2 (a yummy option, if the amount works for you). Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. Loud enough place the kids weren't bothersome - and they ate well, too!

We had a nice dinner here after arriving at the Harbor House hotel, which is located immediately next door. I enjoyed dining on the patio, overlooking the harbor. However, there's also lots of indoor seating if you prefer to stay out of the heat. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but the quality of the food was good and our... More

We are locals but decided to give brunch a try here. I must say it was very good and if you throw in the great view and zero wait...we will be back soon.

Very enjoyable lunch after disembarking the cruise ship. Delicious Greek salad, and a Gyros were had by our group. Modern, open and spacious atmosphere with lots of windows and outdoor seating if so desired. Portions were large, so we took leftovers on the plane ride home to enjoy. Highly recommend this place.

We stayed at the Harbor House and dined at Olympia Grill this past week. The happy hour is menu is awesome! The food is fresh and delicious. The drinks are soooo tasty. The view is lovely. You will see shrimp boats on the pier, lovely sunsets and dolphins swimming in the bay. It's a great waterfront restaurant.

Thank stacey b

Located on a working harbor with a great view of vessels going up and down the channel and dolphins frolicking in the bay. The best seafood and view of the sunset in Galveston. We offer private dining for between 10 and 300, and have accommodated many large functions such as the Commemoration of the USS Fort Worth, many weddings, bachelorette parties and rehearsal dinners. We are also within easy walking distance of the Strand on Pier 21.
