As we walked down the river we were lured in by the fantastic aroma. The calamari was tender and delicious. We sat outside and enjoyed the view. They could use a wider selection of draft beer. Food and service was excellent. We will be back.

This place was excellent. Not only the food was good, but the waitress and the chef Nick (who I believe was the owner), gave us an extraordinary customer service. My wife has a really restricted diet with gluten free, dairy free and more because of allergies with our two months old daughter. The chef was gracious enough to come out... More

My third trip to Savannah, and I make it a point to come here every time. Start with the soup, don't forget the salad, then partake in the extensive menu! I'm a gyro fan, and it doesn't get better. Never had to wait, friendly staff, quick service.

I went there because I was meeting up with a cousin. The hummus was great and the gyro reminded me of my college times in europe.

Checked out a dozen + places before picking Olympia. Very typical Greek atmosphere, excellent service, wide menu choices. Had lemon chicken, and spanikopita, both excellent. Sides were very good as well.

My sweetheart and I took a friend here Monday night for dinner and were absolutely enchanted. The atmosphere, the service and the food were stellar. We started with ouzos and appetizers, progressed to delicious main courses, and had divine desserts. The appetizers were the least of it. Two of us had stuffed grape leaves and one had the flaming sausage... More

This is my absolute favorite restaurant to bring visiting friends and family too. The whole atmosphere is inviting and comfortable. While the food IS incredibly delicious (I'm picky about my hummus and I highly recommend it!) service always makes a place for me, and it is outstanding here! We are always greeted with friendly faces and have never had any... More

Coming from Chicago we take our lamb gyro seriously. These were delicious. Have never had one with feta before and it was a cool change. Our server Katy was excellent.
