History buffs, you're going to love Star Drug Store's great story. Take the time to read the back of the menu while you wait on your bacon and eggs. We admired the fact that many hard-working people had rescued Star Drug from the ravages of hurricanes and had made their minds up not to let the storms win. The whole... More

My family and I have been eating here for years. We bumped into it by accident and was hooked from first bite. Their tomato bisque soup is like none I have ever tasted anywhere else. Like it came right off your grandmother's stove. And the home made pimento cheese sandwich is so delicious that even though your stuffed afterwards you... More

We enjoyed lunch in this old-time soda fountain shop with lots of old decorations and cool stuff to buy.

This is a great place to have breakfast or lunch. It has a great drug store counter and is a really cool old dinner. The drug store is gone but the old bones are still there. We stayed at the Tremont which was nice but the room service was "not good".... We found this place and is was fabulous. We... More

This drugstore/ ice cream shop is worth the short walk from the tourist heavy strand. The service was fast and friendly. My husband had the eggs benedict. I had a simple breakfast of poached egg with bacon and toast. We are discerning about poached eggs and the server knew what we were asking and did not take offense but answered... More

It is not every day you get to sit at a drugstore counter that was one of the first places where integration occurred in the South. Okay, this probably was not the actual counter, but it is the same location where the first businessman in Galveston served all people and then encouraged his fellow business owners to do the same...

Old drugstore, lots of memorabilia. You can sit at the counter or at small tables around the perimeter. We had typical breakfast food and it was good. Hard to rate eggs and bacon as great. The cooking grill is at the end of the counter so you can watch. The host (I think the owner) was very friendly and helped... More

We found this drug store when we were departing a wonderful weekend stay at the Tremont House (see my other review). It was fabulous! We walked in and immediately sat down as I guess we came at a good time because as we were eating many others were waiting at the door. I can see why as this place is... More

You have to try the Star Drug Store downtown for breakfast. Everything was good. They have awesome bacon and pancakes. Service was good. I did not much care for their breakfast potatoes but everything else we had was super. It is an old drug store with a soda fountain. It is a very interesting place to see but they don’t... More
