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.

We were with a large party for lunch. We received excellent service and the food was wonderful. I had the Greek vegetable plate and it was fabulous.

By the water at the ship channel. Food is excellent, service is fantastic. It's serves Greek food, but has other items for anyone that does not like Greek food. It is not inexpensive but worth it.

After a horrible experience across the street at Willie G's, we were happy to be greeted at the door and immediately seated. My husband's birthday. So we had some good wine. Great ceviche! Fabulous scallops! Smoked mahi with mango on Asian salad was very good - although halfway through, I was done with the smoke. Waiter was attentive. There is harbor view seating but we sat inside looking out because of the humidity. Much more sleek, chic, and waaaaay better service than Willie G's.

We recently had a great wining and dining experience at the Olympia Restaurant at Pier 21. We had been travelling across the US from New Zealand when we ended up in Galveston. Our bartender and attendant was Bryan Calderon who was not only hardworking and attentive, but proved himself to be a very clever bartender who made the best mojita and margueritas I've ever tried. They weren't sweet and sickly but very tasty and refreshing. In addition, the seafood and salad were not only so beautiful and fresh but also very reasonably priced. I also enjoyed using the salt preparation in the women's bathroom and was surprised to find how moisturising and refreshing it was on my hands - even used it on my arms as quite a hot day! Well done to the Greek Olympia Restaurant and your staff! We had earlier in the day tried the Italian restaurant opposite which though very pleasant surroundings we found to be very expensive and no comparison with the food and service.

Husband and I had lunch here. We both ordered Greek salads and shrimp pitas. The Greek salad was very good. The greens and cucumber were crisp and there was lots of feta cheese. Only complaint was the one, lonely olive in the salad. The shrimp pitas with tzaki sauce were excellent. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the old ship and the water.
