We were in town for the Tall Ships festival and stopped in at the Olympia Grill for their Friday drink special - Chocolate Martini. One goes down real fine, two you'll be a-smilin', three and you might slip off your chair!

We went to Olympia after a boat tour of the harbor, and had their lunch special. The Greek salad was delicious, as was the pasta with the meat sauce. Service was attentive, and the ambiance was excellent.

Great afternoon at the grill. The crab stack is absolutely a must and if you really get lucky, Justin will be your waiter. Outstanding all the way around.

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.
