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.

Stuffed salmon, snapper, salad and desert were Amazing! The salad was crisp and flavorful, the fish was perfectly prepared with excellent blend of spice. The chocolate crème brulé is chocolate cake with uncaramelized crème brulé on top which was good, but not what I expected, however, the lemon custard was extremely good. Perfect consistency mixed with great flavor and a light lemon undertone made this desert a wonderful end to the meal. Then there's our server! She was sweet, funny, observant, and thorough. Iryna was delightful and made our entire Anniversary dinner something worth repeating! This is definitely a place to stop and visit after a day off shopping on The Strand!

If you can't decide between Greek and seafood, this casually elegant spot is for you. The humongous Greek salads make a yummy and healthy lunch. We last ordered it topped with a slab of perfectly medium-rare tuna dredged in black sesame seeds. The quietly grown-up bar makes a perfect venue for cocktail-hour conversation, and the view of the harbor almost upstages the food. Book a table outside (if the weather is mild and not windy) or inside next to the floor-to-ceiling windows, and keep an eye out for dolphins.

This is a GREAT Greek restaurant for anything traditional Greek. Of course we had to have the Gyros, and they were the best ever!! We had both traditional and made with Chicken, and french fries. If you have had enough sea food, and want to take a break, the Olympia is highly recommended. Our waitress was great! Had Margaritas on the rocks with salt, and La Terre Chardonnay wine. Both were delish!

Went here Jan. 9, 2016 for a before dinner meal. Wanted to get a seafood dinner while in Galveston. This is a revisit to this restaurant, the last time being a few years ago. Food was excellent, prices were average ($$-$$$), but service was fantastic. Kudos to the manager for keeping the great place all these years. Shrimp was actually Gulf shrimp - not imported from Asia. Yum! Crab balls were outstanding. Next time I may try the Greek food.

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.
