We joined friends from Chicago last Friday evening. Appetizer plate was good, but not spectacular. Pork chops were overcooked. Most food was left on the plate. Extra charge for one slice of pita bread. Nothing special in terms of décor or service. Desserts were overpriced. Restaurant was mostly empty during our visit although it was Friday evening.

From pizza to coconut shrimp, Olympia Grill offers a variety of Mediterranean dishes. We started with the crab stack with mango salsa and stuffed crab claws,our taste buds were delighted with these choices. The pizza crust is crisp and toppings were plentiful. Gyros were moist and delicious. Coconut shrimp is some of the best we've ever had. And the piece... More

Food was just OK. Service was slow, didn't get water refills. I ordered the stuffed mushrooms and they were button mushrooms that were over a dollar a piece. No great flavors to remember. But my wife loved the humus.

We were trying to stay away from the big chain restaurants and tried this smaller version of the Olympia on Pier 21. It's set back from Seawall Blvd so no real view but the food was excellent and so was the service. They were quite busy but our waiter Gabriel was attentive and very pleasant. All the wait staff seemed... More

Happy Hour, much like their Pier 21 location, is from four to seven. But, I like the menu items at this location much better. The seared ahi was served hot off the grill, and had to be a six ounce portion for $9. The Gyro Taco was outstanding. It was so good, I ordered a second. And for $5, who... More

We actually ate at the Olympia Grill twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. The food is good, the service was good and the price was right. Nothing pretentious about the restaurant so come as you are.

Some of the menu items looked good but the waiter thought we would not like them. Once again management isn't making or saving money hiring inexperienced young people to sell their what were probably the better signature items. The young man indicated he had never tasted some of the ones I asked about and could not explain what the entry... More

Olympia is located right on the Seawall. The food is fresh and delicious. The decor is rustic Greece. The service was a bit slow, but the restaurant was full. It is good for singles, couples, groups, and families.
