We had dinner at the restaurant. While sharing a plate, my significant other found a long hair baked into one of our shrimp. We showed it to the waiter. This was addressed immediately and the manager came by our table. The manager only offered a free dessert and not to comp the dish. I perceive it’s understandable why we would decline any additional food.
Waiter seemed distracted. Two of our orders came out wrong. My eggs Benedict was really light on Hollandaise sauce and cold. Requested vegetables instead of potatoes. Had potatoes on the plate. Vegetables came out 35 min later. View is lovely and those who chose gyros really enjoyed.
We truly enjoyed our Mother's Day diner at Olympia Grill. I had made a special request to have an outside table with a view of the water. We were promptly shown to our table and thrilled to receive a perfect table right by the water. Our service was very good. The food was decent although not superb by any means. My mother-in-law's Mini Pita Combo had two pitas instead of three. She did finally receive the third pita half way through our meal. My husband and my mother's lamb chops were overcooked and a little dried out. No accommodation was made although our server asked if we'd like to speak to a manger and we declined. Overall I would definitely recommend Olympia Grill, mainly for the setting and the atmosphere. I could see myself visiting again at some point in the future.
I came to the restaurant with my mother for Mother’s Day. She had never been here before, and so she drove in from Houston to eat dinner with me. I reservation time was perfect, and we were able to watch the sunset will be eight. Our waiter was very attentive but not overly so, and the other staff members were kind as well. The other people in the dining area enjoyed communication with whoever else was at their table, and even so the volume was moderate.
Wonderful wonderful experience!
Best food, friendly service, great atmosphere... One of our favorites
Everything was great
For a tourist driven eating establishment the food was quite good. Calamari delicious. Cole slaw interesting with some fruit mixed in. Service was EXCELLENT. Very attentive and prompt waiter.
Great food and the service was spectacular! We will definitely be back soon!
It was wonderful, even on a busy Sunday! Service and hostess were fantastic.
Excellent waterfront location and great food! Large menu with both seafood and Greek options. Gluten free options as well. Loved it!
Poor service and poor reserved table, but food was good. Will try again.
We had a large group of ten on the patio at Sunset.. lovely spot, and the waiter did an excellent job of accommodating us! Our food, appetizers and all were delicious as always!
I was excited to be taking my friends to Olympia Grill since it was their first time. On a Wednesday evening it took a long time for the server to take our cocktail orders then a longer time to bring appetizer and drinks. Our appetizer with hummus, olives, fruit and pita was good but the grapes were wilted and old not fresh at all. There was a really long wait for our entrees. My friend ordered another glass of wine but they never brought it until we reminded them 20 minutes later. My fish entree came with a side of steamed vegetables. The fish was dry and vegetables were ice cold. 20 minutes later they brought warm veggies after I was finished with my dinner. They never replaced my friends cold vegetables. I have been to Olympia Grill several times but have never had such bad service. I was truly disappointed and won’t be recommending this establishment any time soon.
Food was great! Our server was so personable and even directed us to fun activities for our stay.
The seafood is very fresh and tasty. The grilled octopus was wonderful. The service was great without being overbearing. Overall we had an awesome experience at Olympia at Pier 21!
We were disappointed. Wait person did not offer the Happy Hour menu and we learned later that there were items not on the main menu. Our entrees came out about half through the salad & they just pushed out salads out of the way with our plates. We were offered no drink refills and the food was bland & unseasoned. Salad was very nice. A bit pricy for just ok.
I try and eat hear when I'm in Galveston. The location is fabulous. The service was great and the food quality was excellent. We had the stuffed shrimp and were pleasantly surprised at how different they were from other restaurants stuffed shrimp. SO YUMMY! Gumbo was really good with just the right amount of heat.
Great meal, wonderful service!
The food was excellent. The service was good. The restaurant is louder on the weekend, with some “entertainment “ than it is during the week.
Visited during restaurant week in Galveston, so we had the fixed price dinner on Saturday night. Very good meal, both of us enjoyed our dinners. It was very lively because it was also Happy Hour. Would be nice to come during the summer when we could sit outside. Service was very good as well; we will come back another time and try the Greek specials.
Best new find in Galveston. The salad was fresh, the dressing light and delicious. Grilled chicken was so flavorful. We will be back!
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 food here was delicious and our service was awesome! I would highly recommend this place and we would definitely go back!
Spring, Fall, and New Year's Eve we find ourselves on The Strand. One meal has to be here! They have a great Greek wine selection. The Crab Cakes are ah-mazing! The lentil soup...the fresh fish...stuffed shrimp...the Greek dishes....oh! Just go! Treat yourself. For the two of us, two glasses of wine, shared crab cakes, stuffed shrimp, and fresh fish with topping, plus tip comes in around $100.00.
The view is great of the Pier. The added a bar to the patio so you can have a seat there and look out over the water. The sometimes have a belly dancer on site. She's got talents!
We really enjoy this place. Hope you will, as well.
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.
Olympia at Pier 21 is a 'must' when you go to Galveston. The service is always good, and the food top notch.
the staff was fabulous and took very good care of our family.
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.
Great place for a group of people. They were helpful when our party of 10 turned into 13, and the service was great. The food was terrific, and everyone was very happy with the choice.
Loved the view. Good food, a little spicy. A bay cat came and sat on the steps with us and we shared our meal with him. (See photos)
Great service and food.
Delicious food and attentive (but not intrusive) service. Meals were large. Noisy inside dining area but remained enjoyable.
Pretty restaurant... great location!!! Just a bit delayed service, but they were super busy!! Will def be back
Fun, relaxed dining experience for our anniversary. Great view of the pier. Waiter could have been more helpful with ordering. Ordered the pita and hummus combination plate, which was delicious and beautiful presentation--but it was too much for the two of us as an appetizer. Our waiter had told us it would be about right--that it was just three different dips for the pita bread; however, it was far more than that--dips, delicious goat cheese, olives, vegetables and fruit. A great appetizer for 3-4 people. The Greek and Caesar's side salads were really good. The blackened red fish special was good, but not great. The chicken and pasta dish was quite average. We were too full to enjoy a dessert. Ambiance was nice. Overall, it was a positive experience.
I ate stuff I thought I didn't like. It was fantastic. Guess I like it now.
Look forward to visiting here on our trips to Galveston from Houston.
Lots of food, reasonable prices. Service was excellent.
