Food was average at best. Wait staff did not pay attention to what we ordered, came back and asked if we wanted fried or boiled shrimp, we did not order either. Shrimp showed up on the bill which took 5 minutes and two trips back to the register to nullify. Would not recommend or return.

my wife and i recently had dinner while visiting galveston. overall, the food and atmosphere was very average, while the bill was larger than we had for a far better meal the previous evening. the restaurant seemed more interested in volume (people and dollars), than in the quality of the food and dining experience. admittedly most of the patrons around...

The Taste of Olympia for two people for $32.99 was a great choice for us as it included appetizers (great hummus, tzatziki, falafel, and dolma); a Greek salad; and a sampling of entrees (spanakopita, wonderful gyro slices, keftedes, pastitso, moussaka, and steamed vegetables.). It was more than enough food. We added the Happy Hour wine and beer for $3 each,... More

This is a perfect place to take the family for lunch to capture the essence of Galveston. The view of the harbor, cruise ships, and Offshore oil museum is great. Service was marvelous, and the food quite good. I went for the Greek side of the menu, and had very nice Moussaka. Wife and son had the crab stuffed shrimp.... More

This is a decent restaurant despite its touristy setting. The menu is varied with a good mix of local fish, American classics and a few Greek dishes. There is a nice veranda running around the perimeter of the building with l views across the water.

We were waiting for our time on the Dolphin Watch sightseeing cruise so we decided to get a drink while we waited. The outdoor seating was nice because we could watch the boats going by. The drinks were good. I had a mango Daiquiri We didn't have any food.
