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.

Three of us went in for a late lunch on a Sunday, busy happening place. The stuffed flounder was tender and tasty, the side of lump crab was perfect. It is not on the giant menu, I asked and our super great waitress said 'I will make that happen". Saganaki was lit and Opa! Fun place to watch the cruise ship people come and go. I will be back as my belly was too full to add oysters. You can dine inside or out. We chose out-great day!

Loved our experience here dining with friends visiting from Michigan.

Two of us had the Crab Stuffed Bossa fish dinner. It is a mild catfish per our Server. Creamy & flavorful sauce created a delicious entree.

The other meals were Lasagne & Grilled Gulf Shrimp. Both were delicious as well.

We will go back!!

Visited recently during Galveston Restaurant Week and our group was very pleased. 2 choose the pre set menu which were fish and we're very happy. Myself and friend went from the regular menu and opted for oysters, both raw and cooked. They have several ways they prepare the cooked all have a Greek flare and are good.
Service was good. Only negative was the bar. We did get there toward the end of the night however a major beer brand not chilled. It was as if : this is what we have left...take it or leave it. The bartender did come over and said he would ice down a few, but he was on his way out. Funny, he was still there when we left.
I'm sure this was just an oversight at the bar and I do recommend Olympia. Good fresh seafood and a great Greek salad.

I fell in love with this place back in the summer and wanted to try it again. Amazing as always! I highly recommend the crab cakes and pita an hummus for an appetizer... I love the location as well! Will definitely be back on our next trip to Galveston...

This restaurant has a nice sun deck over viewing the water, the service was prompt and friendly, the food was just OK, not remarkable but not bad, perhaps a bit pricey.
