The food at Olympia was so good, and the customer service was great! We ordered the shrimp lovers meal with the appetizer was the lamb with garlic sauce. Everything was so good. I will be back. A little pricey but great food.

Husband said gumbo was really good..very spicy. My gyro was. Dry. The sauce was on bottom of pita. And I had to ask for additional. I've actually had much better at the woodlands food court. Bread pudding. Was good and frozen margarita was too.

Fresh & high quality food, great service & plenty of healthy options. Justin was an excellent waiter! We had ceviche & tzaziki sauce dish for appetizers, my husband loved the red snapper & the bossa fish filet was perfect with our subset view!

It is on the Bayou side of Galveston. We ate Felafel and the food was okay for vegetarians, not the best I have ate. I wish there were more vegetarian options.

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.

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.
