This is one of our favorite places to eat on the island. We usually make happy hour, the bartenders are the best. Really, we've had some experiences that made us appreciate this restaurant, and their always accommodating staff. The manager makes a point to visit with us. Our food tonight was featured for restaurant week. It was a 3 course... More

Atmosphere is good, we were outside the wife ordered the gyro plate I ordered the pasta with shrimp and crawfish. The wife's gyro plat was very good my pasta came out cold they took it back and brought me a new dish it was as cold if not colder then the first.

We like to go when it's warm enough to sit outside, have a meal and a drink on the deck. Huge selection on menu.

Menu selection is o.k. but atmosphere is cold. I prefer a warm and inviting atmosphere. Our 3 visit probably won't be back for awhile.

I enjoyed a light brunch watching beautiful people visiting the Pier 21. Great service and it's next to Harbor House where I stayed.

Only in Texas where you can still hit the beach during the Christmas season! What a nice day in Galveston kicking back for some great outdoor service, watch the cruise ship pull in, and of course enjoy some delicious fresh seafood, right here at Olympia. The place was hopping mid day middle of the week, yet we were treated like... More

My husband and I decided to try Olympia for lunch the other day. We got seated right away BUT waited for over 10 minutes and NO ONE even acknowledged we were there. The couple behind us came in about 5 minutes after we did and their server was there very quickly getting their drink orders. They had a question about... More

In Galveston for a friend's wedding with a night to spare. We were staying in the Strand area so we tried the happy hour at Olympia at Pier 21. We found the restaurant welcoming and moderately busy for a Thursday night at 5:30. Demetrius was very attentive. They have a nice draft selection, especially liked the Texas Amber, and the... More

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.
