Spouse and I were staying at Harbor House and during our happy hour bar/appetizer crawl we had the pleasure of dining at Olympia. Staff was friendly, food was as ordered, but only complaint was the overcooked calamari. Everything else was fantastic.

This location on Harborside at pier 21 has spectacular outdoor water views. Their Greek nachos and gyros are really good. Make sure to try their taziki sauce too

Kerry, thanks for the positive feedback, we do hope to see you again soonI It is my understanding that the construction on I-45 North will continue for a couple of months as they're working to complete it during winter months.

We enjoyed the daily special for lunch here - grilled fish, rice pilaf and greek salad. The fish was beautifully cooked and served in a tasty wine sauce. The portion sizes were generous and service was attentive.

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.
