We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the ships. The food was good. I had the daily special which was chicken and my husband had the fish tacos. He also had some chicken soup which was awesome.

We had dinner at Olympia, sitting out on the deck overlooking the harbour on a warm evening. Very pleasant and good service but our food was disappointing. Perhaps different choices would have been better but we had hoped for better.More

Great Greek food and a good variety of seafood, excellent desserts, cocktails, and even sea salt scrubs to purchase for friends at home. Hummus is freshly made and is served with a selection of veggies; food comes quickly and never disappoints.

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.
