CLASSIC soda fountain ambiance; 'bout the best burger on the island. and a secret:..... they use vanilla malt, so the chocolate malt w/ extra malt is AMAZING. Just a couple blocks from the strand, so whether you're day-tripping from the mainland, or docked w/ a cruise -- it's walking distance from most places.

I'd heard so much about Star from my fellow crew-members that I had to try it out before heading home for the summer. It was amazing. My friend and I went there for breakfast. I got their Star egg plate and it was super-delish. I don't even know if that's a real word, but you get the point. Go...try it...you'll... More

The Star Drugstore has an eclectic mix of retail, and the old soda-fountain atmosphere. In our group the food was found to be between fair and good, but the milk shakes and floats were a great hit! Especially a great place for snacks - the shakes and floats.

We stopped here to get a sandwich on a Saturday afternoon and discovered that the lunch counter closes at 300 pm and the soda fountain closes at 400. Service wa very very poor. The place was very very much overrated. Don't believe the ratings posted on Trip Advisor.

On a girl friends trip to Galveston we stopped our touring to have lunch at the Star Drug Store. It is s a cute place with the old fashioned counter and stools as well as tables on the side. We were hot and tired. The cold drinks we got were very tasty. We then ordered various meals including sandwiches and... More

This is such a cute place with fun history. It is great for families or anyone looking for a quick cheap meal. The service was spectacular and the food was good too. They are only open for breakfast and lunch. It is walking distance to the strand.

We made a point of trying breakfast here and we were sorely disappointed in both the food and the service. The servers were indifferent and when we got our food the french toast was soggy in the middle and the sausage was the rubbery low quality fast food type. It just didn't seem like anyone cared very much. The building... More

Came in for a late breakfast. Around 9.30ish so we were pretty much the only customers. Had the pancakes & bacon, my wife had the eggs. Lovely fresh cooked food (bacon a little greasy if I'm nitpicking). Coffee was good & the atmos/decor is lovely. Definitely recommend.
