Very quaint.

My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way out of town for breakfast. I'm glad we discovered it. Old diner type feel, we sat at the counter. Vintage decor. The food was simple and tasty. I look forward to returning the next time I'm in town.

We go here for breakfast about once a month. Great value. It is a small menu but the omelet and French toast are my favorites. Have been for lunch a few times. Again small menu, have had the hamburger and a sandwich both very good and reasonably priced. The service is top notch. It use to be a pharmacy/ soda... More

I've always made time to make a stop for a sandwich and coke float on every island visit. We were just their the day before tropical bill (6/13/15) as usual everything was great. I love the history, the friendly people, the shopping and the sitting at the counter. I love sitting there enjoying myself. It's a simple place in an... More

Accommodated 9 people at 8:30am on Saturday! The food was good and everyone ordered something different. A lot to choose from and enjoyable once received. Staff was fun and knowledgeable. Place has a great history!

On the suggestion of a friend, we opted to have lunch at the Drug Store. It felt like stepping backward in time to the old timey soda fountain drug stores. The ambiance is fun and you should spend a few minutes browsing. The fare is sandwiches (grilled cheese to club sandwiches). Wife had a grilled cheese and I went for... More

Love the historical building and the wares behind the glass wall cabinets from yesteryear. Left with two new treasures. Had the salad sampler with about 5 selections from the menu and a black cow for lunch. None of the lunch treats wowed me. Service was very good.

So glad someone told us about the oldest drugstore in the US, now a 59 style diner. We had a great breakfast there and it was in walking distance from the Tremont Hotel!

Star Drug Store was recommended to us for breakfast on our last trip to Galveston but we didn't make it until this time. We will definitely return! We arrived around brunch time and inside was pretty crowded so we sat outside. The vintage interior seems to be a big part of the draw and I would like to enjoy the... More

Such a neat place in downtown Galveston! Great atmosphere! Makes you feel like you're in a different decade. I had a bacon cheeseburger with Caesar side salad. Must try a shake or slice of cake for dessert!
