Sashimi style Ahi tuna tossed with cilantro, seaweed, fresh jalapeños in teriyaki sauce, then finished sliced avocado and sesame seeds. Served with crispy pork.
Substitute any other sides for $0.99. (French Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, Parmesan Potatoes, Steamed Vegetables, Grilled Vegetable Skewer, Rice Pilaf or Fresh Fruit)
Lover’s Quarrel
Roasted Canadian lobster tail accompanied by 8 oz of filet tenderloin skewered with peppers & onions the grill to perfection. Served with roasted Vegetables of the day and mashed potatoes.
Haddock Veracruz
Grilled haddock‏ topped With sautéed tomato, jalapenos, and yellow onions then finished with fresh avocado. Served with Spanish rice.
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.

Right on the waterfront where you can watch the huge oil tanker ships go by. TIP don't feed the birds a cracker if you eat outside. They will NOT go away.

I am a light eater so it's hard to pay a lot and get a huge portion. Small plates would be nice, at smaller prices. Food was delicious. Hubby had gyros and I had small Greek salad. Both agreed my salad was best.

We have been to Olympia several times over the last few years. We love the Harborside location because there is plenty of parking. The menu has a great variety of delicious food, and it's not too expensive.

The Pier 21 Parking Lot is right in front of Pier and the Restaurant. You just need to ask the restaurant to validate your parking slip. The validation, as I recall is good for three hours.
