“olympia on the seawall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

We visited the Olympia restaurant at approximately 5400 seawall. Not sure it they are affiliated is not disregard, if they are it is a very good place to get some authentic greek cuisine. The waiter was a bit too friendly if that is possible but guess that is better than not friendly at all. Any way the food is good. When we return to the island we will be looking up the Olympia again.

“Oysters on the half-shell were awesome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

We dined outside with the Ellissa floating near by. The appetizer of oysters on the half-shell were cold, well presented, & tasty. The rest of the meal was good. they did over-cook my steak, but were kind about re-doing it. We will definitely eat there again.

“Food was cold. Not up to par for price.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

This was the second time we have eaten here. The atmosphere is nice. But for the price the food should be a lot better. The crab cake was not bad, but our entrees a seafood platter & stuffed shrimp were barely warm and not that great.

“Great service and yummy food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

We arrived at a very busy time, as two cruise ships were delayed, and everyone seemed to be at Olympia. However, the service was great, and the appetizers that we ordered were exceptional. Awesome view too by the way!!

“Great Bloody Mary! Outstanding service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

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!
