It starts at the door, the atmosphere is eccentric. The food is superb!! But most of all I have to say our server B. Adrienne was top shelf! She went above and beyond to accommodate us and make sure we didn't feel like guests but more like long time family. She really sealed the deal on our dining experience and... More

We were here with a group of 20. Food was better than expected, reasonably priced and the service was good. Heard no complaints and several compliments from dining partners.

This is our favorite outside dining spot in Galveston. Being harborside, you may see a cruise ship, dolphins, or even Mr. "Billion Dollar Buyers" Fertitta's massive yacht wiling eating. Being Greek, get a Greek salad and something with traditional gyro meat with it. My favorite is the grilled fish tacos (I wish they had a smaller size since the regular... More

We ate dinner here recently and enjoyed a mango wango drink outside on the patio while watching the fog roll in even heavier. We shared some appetizers of crab cakes and garlic shrimp which were pretty good as well as Greek salad and a special layered lump crab meat appetizer. Our waitress Iryna was attentive as well as the manager.... More

I brought 18 people here for dinner in Feb. Everyone raved about how good the food and service was. My friends come from all over the world so their expectations were high. They talked about the food and service throughout the next day.

My friends and I went to the Olympia Grill at Pier 21 for Happy Hour! They enjoyed a couple of rounds of great beer and mixed drinks at reasonable HAPPY Hour discounts, I had mineral water and cranberry juice! We ordered a mix of several of their appetizers, which is a marvelous way to sample their different offerings, I especially... More

Loved sitting on the covered deck and watching the ships pass by. Great location, great service and great food. I had the vegetarian plate which was very generous and more than I could eat. Greek salad, lentil soup, hummus, stuffed grape leaves. It was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I ate there with friends for lunch but would... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat on the island. We usually make happy hour, the bartenders are the best. Really, we've had some experiences that made us appreciate this restaurant, and their always accommodating staff. The manager makes a point to visit with us. Our food tonight was featured for restaurant week. It was a 3 course... More

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.
