Yelp's On Island Time: Elite Squad Event At Olympia in Galveston, Texas!

Posted by Farrah Akhtar

Part of Galveston Restaurant Week, the Yelp Elite Squad was invited to Galveston, Texas for its first ever Elite Event on the Island! It was a sunny Saturday afternoon on January 19th when 30 excited Elites and guests made way to Olympia, The Grill at Pier 21 for a fun fusion of Greek and seafood eats, refreshing bevs and spectacular views!

There was generous buffet of Chicken Cordon Bleu, Salmon Crostini, Greek Salad, Shrimp Pasta, desserts and more – and the drinks were flowin’ with an assortment of cold beers, robust wines and potent Mango Wango martinis! And the views? We waved goodbye to travelers as two massive cruise ships headed out into the sunset!
