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.

The food at Olympia is a little different from all the other seafood places in Galveston in that it has a greek flair to it. We found it to be very good with a good variety. The seafood was very fresh and the wait staff was very attentive even though we had a fairly large group dining. The setting on the pier is pretty neat as well and we happenned to see a family of dolphins swim by. Give it a try.

Friends and I went for Happy Hour. We were waited on promptly. The service was good and for an upscale place had great happy hour prices. Drinks could have been a little strong. Overall great. Would go again.

This is a regular stop for my husband and I when we decide to do a mini road trip from Houston. We've never made a reservation and have never had to wait. All little busy at night but service is still pretty good. It's very nice being by the water and sometimes there is a belly dancer, which is interesting but adds noise. Love the hummus and pita bread.

Best menu I have seen in Galveston. Great food and service. Plenty of selection. Excellent view. A bit pricey but worth it compared to what's offered at other places in Galveston. We will be back.

This restaurant is on the harbor and you can eat inside or out and watch the boats come and go. We made reservations but it was probably not necessary. The crab stack appetizer was really delicious. For our dinner entrees I had a fabulous greek salad with salmon, my husband loved his sautéed speckle trout fillet. The twist of being a greek seafood place really works and we will visit again.
