We went to the Star Drugstore and stepped back into history! It's charming and quaint and quite a treat. The food is good. Not necessarily the best breakfast we've ever had but quite good. What we found at Star was a feeling we were sitting where many of Galveston's former citizens spent time. You should stop by. It's not Denny's... More

Heard good reviews about this place so we decided to check it out. Unfortunately our breakfast (4 people) all came out cold and one order was wrong. Hash browns were cold and chewy, breakfast sandwich had cheese that was not even melted. Grits were cold and clumpy, toast was burnt. Overall it was disappointing and quite expensive for what we...

This is a cool place. And, most importantly, the food is good. One note, there is a sign that says wait to be seated when you walk in. No one worries about it. Just grab a seat.

Whenever we are in Galveston, we always enjoy a trip to Star Drug for breakfast. They have yummy breakfast sandwiches on a croissant, pancakes, delicious bacon, and your basic eggs and toast. Ther are even little tables outside if that is what you prefer.

Loved this cool little independent restaurant away from the tourist traps. Reasonably priced, great atmosphere, delicious chocolate malt! Can't wait to go back!! I can't recommend enough that you stop by this place if you enjoy one of a kind places that aren't generic chains.

Nice to go in and have a peak at the decor and maybe a soda. Half empty yet the service was rushed and the cashier blamed me for not liking my club sandwich, which was missing a middle piece of bread and difficult to eat.

The store and building itself was quirky with lots of interesting and antique items to view.The food on the other hand was not that tasty.the burger buns were hard, and we had a chicken curry salad that was served with a couple of saltine crackers .Maybe this place is...

I made Galveston a day trip from Houston, as a tribute to Glen Campbell and that song I remember so well, and it turned out to be a good day out. Star drug store was a nice lunch stop, I had the Caesar burger and a root beer. The place has a bit of character in a olde time kind... More

My kids wanted to have a root beer float so we stopped in for lunch. They slurped up their floats and seemed to enjoy their food as well. I couldn't decide what I wanted so I tried the sandwich sampler, pimento cheese, tuna salad and chicken salad on a croissant cut in 3 pieces. It was very good!
