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.

We ate there with a very big group on Saturday, July 14th.
The management and wait staff were so good for such a big group. I just snacked but everyone in our group loved the food.

Be certain to make reservations early for this great spot on the water!! Demarco was a terrific server! Great seafood! The Shrimp Lovers was nice as was the fried shrimp. Several managers dropped by to confirm the meal was the way we liked it. They turn the tables but the food was great! Did I mention the belly dancer with the sword balanced on her head or the tiered flames while she danced????! Definitely will return!!

Not my first visit so I knew our visit would be very good.
Our waiter Eric helped us navigate the cocktail and food menus. My mango cocktail was perfect, not too sweet, cold and refreshing.
His recommendation of the shrimp over pasta (one being gluten free) was so good. The sauce was light and tasty.
The birthday girl could not eat cake due to the gluten free challenge but Olympia outdid itself with a large bowl of ice cream and around the entire bowl written in chocolate syrup were the words Happy Birthday. Very classy and tasty.
Lots of good personal service.

We had dinner here on a Friday night. Even though we got there kind of late, the staff was attentive & didn't try to hurry us. They were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was excellent. They have a wide variety of Greek food, seafood & American food, so there is something for everyone. The portions were large. We took food home. The atmosphere was nice. The location is great. Close to the harbor and the Strand.

We went for lunch per our hotels recommendation. They had a large selection on the menu . I enjoyed a very fresh Greek salad with amazing ahi tuna on it. My fiancé had a gyro combo which he said was really good and the gumbo which was also very fresh with Big hunks of seafood .
You can sit outside with your pet but even service animals are asked to sit in a certain section which seemed to be hotter then the other side of the deck . The service wasn’t the best but the food made up for it . I’d certainly go back .
