So much history

The food was Great. and a great bargain! The entire place is full of history, fires, floods, hurricanes and the place is still standing ! both floors are full of crafts, memorabilia, t-shirts, purses, jewelry, etc all for sale...it's like a museum where all things are on sale... I loved it here.

Star drug store is conveniently located near the Tremont hotel and the cruise terminal in Galveston. It is a quaint and interesting place for an inexpensive breakfast. Super friendly and good coffee with plenty of refills.

I've heard good things from others so we went for breakfast...how can you mess up breakfast??? They did and we were disappointed. Sat at the counter and it took forever to get waited on. We have decided to give it another chance soon so will update after that visit.

Great location-very close to the cruise ships and cruise ship parking. The service was fast and friendly. The prices are great and the food was excellent. Even if you're not eating, this old drug store is worth checking out.

The islander omelet was very good. The one thing that struck me wrong was the cooks were handling the food with their bare hands. Customers sitting at the bar do not want to see someone handling their food with bare hands. that area of handling food with bare hands needs attention. This was my first time to visit this location... More

We stopped in for lunch. We had the rueben and bacon avacado turkey. They were both good. Chips were run of the meal. Choose the fruit as a side. Cute little diner setting. Everyone was super nice. We will come back here

I love this stop for breakfast. Simple, fast breakfast made right in front of you. Pancakes are good and fluffy, bacon is perfect thick cut that I could eat a plate of. Prices are right for this old soda fountain that has survived since before the 1900 storm.

This place is the oldest drug store in Texas and has the oldest Coca-Cola neon sign in existence. I ordered eggs Benedict at the waiters suggestion, and it was just fantastic. The atmosphere and food are A+

We found this to be an interesting place to stop and view the memorabilia. Also nice place for an ice cream sundae or a go nuts shake(peanut butter and ice cream) both were very good. Friendly and prompt service.

First of all I (although they serve food and it is the oldest working soda fountain in Texas) I wouldn't call this place a restaurant but would classify it as an attraction. History is oozing out of every crack and crevice in this place. A working soda fountain in the middle and a full menu as well as the old... More
