Welcome to Olympia Grill at Pier 21, "Restaurant of the Year" 2014 & 2015
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.

Olympia Grill was perfect for our gathering of girl friends ! All of our food was delicious. Drinks were tasty and service was excellent (attentive but not bothersome).
Thanks for an enjoyable evening!

The bar, drinks, and bar staff were outstanding. We were seated immediately and the hostess was smiling and friendly. We had a beautiful table near the window and the waiter was outstanding (not to say he was also easy on the eyes). Loved the food and ambiance.

The food was just ok. Way to expensive to be just ok! The gumbo was bad, just bad.

Love the Sunday brunch Mediterranean plate with mimosas. We asked for a table outside by the water and it was perfect. Server was available but did not hover. Excellent every time!

Had a great time. Excellent lamb shanks. Would recommend to everyone. Very attentive staff without being pushy.

THE BEST DOG FRIENDLY RESTAURANT IN GALVESTON! and that's not the only reason to love it!

We return here time after time. The food is excellent, the prices reasonable, the service top notch. We always sit outside on the bay. The water is restful and there is always something to see. Lots of room for our dog who becomes excited as soon as she realizes where she is going. They bring her water right away and, along with her cookies and a place to lie, she is in dog heaven. Lunch specials during the week are a real bargain. Many other choices as well and everything is terrific,

This was a first time experience at this restaurant. Ordered the lamb chop with eggs, asked for medium well. Which I should have said well done. After the brunch, I had gotten ill. I may go back again with family, but would avoid any meat.
