We sat outside since it was a nice day. Unfortunately it seemed to add an additional 10 minutes for any service. Food was delicious though! Lamb chops (which were recommended) were delicious and served with an awesome hummus. Great views of the sunset.

This may not sound like the best place to get vegetarian food just based on the name but it turned out to be quite delicious! We ordered the falafel pita, the vegetarian platter and a hummus appetizer. It took a little longer than average to get the food out to us but it was worth the wait. The falafels were... More

Great appetizers: hummus, crab cake & shrimp cocktail. The Lentil Soup was wonderful & very flavorful! Lunch specials were greatly priced as well. If you are at Pier 21 & want something other than a burger definitely try this place!! Everyone was satisfied with what they got. Cesar Salad, Steak Pita & Chicken pita had so much meat with some...

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't love your entrees with us. It sounds like we made a mistake on your order, the beef skewers are served on our Beef Souvlaki plate, not the gyro with beef. Is there any way you can give me more information about your visit so I can work on the issue on our end?... More

So the food was delicious. The drinks were delicious. Just don't sit on the patio during late summer because there is a TON of mosquitos. We got eaten alive, despite the waiter giving us some organic bug spray. My husband had 4 on his calf at one point in time. That was awful. Just sit inside. Your food and experience... More

We were there a couple of times over our weekend getaway. We first stopped in for brunch and bloody marys. Both of us had the seafood omelet. So delicious, huge chunks of crab meat. Kept eating even though I was completely stuffed. The second time we went we shared an appetizer before sunset cruise. Sat at the bar and per... More

We grabbed lunch at Olympia on Saturday, since we had stayed at the Harbor House Hotel the night before. The menu is a mix of Greek and seafood, with some outstanding dishes. The falafel was excellent, and the seafood was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is busy, but doesn't feel crowded. And the staff were exceptionally friendly. I even saw... More

Description
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.
