The Olympia Grill is right there at Harbor House. If you stay at Harbor House and eat at Olympia you get a free bread pudding for dessert. Very tasty! Not expensive for dinner

We eat here every summer and always enjoy it. From the sugar scrub in the bathroom to the food and wait staff and watching the bay.

If you want to enjoy the Galveston weather sit outside at their bar and take in the views and the sea breeze. The shrimp kisses are expensive but are delicious, but the real star of their bar menu is the Greek Nachos. It's a fun,...More

the interior is very attractive, but we chose to sit outside - the breeze was pleasant and the view is most enjoyable - very good service and delicious food - the avocado hummus was especially yummy - we're locals so we'll be back often

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.
