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.

This place is a combination greek/seafood restaurant and offers fantastic food. The service is very good. They will validate your parking ticket so that parking is free.

Busy place, nice menu, good wait staff. A bit pricey. Located right on waterfront. Nice scenery watching boats and rigs.

Authentic Greek food in a dockside setting. Service was average at best, not enough pitas were served to match the quantity of hummus. Wrong omelet was brought to me, not sure if the waiter screwed up the order or the kitchen gave him someone else's omelet. Very slow to refill water. It was warm enough to eat outside in late December but the view is very industrial with several oil rigs and barges to see.

On a 4th of July weekend trip to Galveston, this was an early dinner stop. Parking is available at the adjacent lot. It is paid parking, in general. If you are dining at one of the Pier 21 restaurants, you can get them to validate your ticket for free parking. The Olympia is nestled right on the border of the Pier and the adjoining walkway. The restaurant was lively and really really busy. Though it took quite longer to get our orders taken and served, but that was understandable and the staff were very pleasant and friendly. I had a Shrimp Po-boy while my girlfriend had the grilled salmon. The food though presented tastefully was not adequately warm. It could be due to the overwhelming crowd, but still I cannot recommend it. What kind of made up for it was the outdoor seating facing the bay. It was during the sunset and the birds, tourists, occasional cruises all made up for a spectacular view.

Stopped by here for afternoon coffee after visiting museum. we weren't sure what we wanted but we weren't rushed to decide. Finally decided on Irish coffe and glass of wine and dessert sampler. Yum to all of it. Location has nice view of the bay.
