We went for breakfast. It was good, nothing overly special. The service was good, quick, and the place is cute. Need to go back to try lunch...

We visit Star every year when we go to Galveston. We have always been on a Sunday morning and recommend getting there when they open so that you can get seated right away. The restaurant is really neat and the food is great. Very close...More

We had one hour to find a place to eat before we boarded our Carnival Fun Ship. I told my group that we should just drive through a place and eat on the go. I'm so glad we didn't do that. We turned the corner...More

We tried to go to this place because of the great reviews. Attempted breakfast on a late Sunday morning and didn't want to wait. It was packed! Went back on Monday morning and got in with no problem. The place was busy but not packed...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...More

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.
