A beautiful setting on the waterfront on a pleasant November evening. The shrimp and crab was excellent. The price was reasonable and service was good. A nice place to eat good seafood.

We had dinner at Olympia, sitting out on the deck overlooking the harbour on a warm evening. Very pleasant and good service but our food was disappointing. Perhaps different choices would have been better but we had hoped for better.More

Great Greek food and a good variety of seafood, excellent desserts, cocktails, and even sea salt scrubs to purchase for friends at home. Hummus is freshly made and is served with a selection of veggies; food comes quickly and never disappoints.

It was during off-season but we still had to wait about 30 min for a table outside... The service, food and pretty much everything was very good. We plan to come back here!

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.

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.
