Tried Olympia for the first time for date night. The Greek salad was so delicious that I HAD to buy a bottle of the dressing to take home. The small portion was larger than I would have suspected and nearly filled my belly in itself!...More

Had lunch before our dolphin tour. The food was bland and not flavorful. I couldn't even eat the pancakes or the scrambled eggs from the brunch I ordered. The fried were limp and tasteless. Nice place and atmosphere, but bad food.More

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.
