“Beautiful restaraunt and great food!”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Olympia Grill down by the harbor, not the one on the seawall.

This is a place that we visit as often as we can. The atmosphere is great ~ tons of locas. Service can be spottie but the food is always on the mark. Start off with the calamari and hummus. I always go for the vegetarian platter (even though I am not a vegetarian) which has some of the best lentils soup around and everything that I like about Greek food. All of the fresh fish dishes are amazing. You cannot go wrong with any of the seafood. A little pricey but you get what you pay for - top quality!

Also, I have hosted a business lunch at this location. They have a great private room and were very accomodating!

Lastly, one of the best things about the place is the bathroom! They let you use this incredible seasalt hand scrub. Of course it is for sale by the front door for $20 a tub. Be careful though! I bought 3 different fragrances and didn't use them right away. They go bad. The almost smell rotten if you open the container and don't use it all within a couple of weeks. But, it is hard to beat a new, fresh tub of the stuff! It makes your hands feel amazing.

“Where the Locals Go ~ Outstanding”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

This is where the locals go for great food. The food, service & atmosphere is outstanding. We have never found anything on the menu that wasn't delicious! We HIGHLY recommend you eat here. It's a little more pricey than others in the area, but it is well worth it. We will eat here again & again

“Food is Outstanding - Where the Locals Eat”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED....This is one of the BEST places to eat in Galveston. We are "locals" so we know what's good on the island & what isn't. Our family had the Chicken Picata, the Beef Pitas & grilled fish...DELICIOUS!!! The service was excellent, very attentive. We will be back again & again.

“Good Greek Food”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Food and service was very good. The food at the "Seawall" location was pretty much like I remember when I lived in Greece. Nice portions were provided and each dish had a great taste...a must try on your visit are the Spanakopitas, Tzatziki and Pastitsio, but I suspect that everything else on the menu is very good. Daniel R, our waiter, was very friendly and provided excellent service and was able to explain to the unknowing person what the food was all about.

“Excellent service and food”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We ate at the Seawall restaurant. It is in a small shopping area and we didn't know what to expect. What a pleasant surprise and we plan to go back before we go home. Hubby had the broiled Whole Flounder and said it was delicious. The greek dressing on the tables was wonderful for the salads.
