I had lunch at Star Drugstore today with a friend. Our food was so good, especially the curried chicken salad on my Salad Trio plate. The Seafood Salad was very good, too. The highlight of my lunch was my delicious Chocolate Malt. It was the best!

Quaint old drugstore with a vintage setting, good for breakfast. Fast service and plenty of food to choose from. Old fashion drug store counter with a few tables for diners. Always a great place to stop in for breakfast when in Galveston.

Great place to go for Lunch. Stopped there and the servers and staff were very customer friendly. Impressive for a "not to fancy" lunch place. They have a great 7 salad plate. Very good. My wife had a turkey sandwich with a good dressing. She also had the dill potato salad which was very good. Nice place to visit. Downtown... More

I really enjoyed the food here. I liked the set up of the store and the old styling and feel. I did knock off some points because our service was very slow.

We picked this place for breakfast as we love diners and it seemed very not-fancy. Which it was, even though it was decorated for Hallowe'en and there were other tourists there. Lots of locals as well, and a very comfortable place for just sitting at the counter and having a cup of coffee--which I would recommend, as it was outstandingly... More

I ordered a turkey club: the bacon was so cold it was hard! The bread was toasted - also cold. My husband ordered a hamburger - also cold ! We sent it back and walked out. !

Awesome fountain experience and just off The Strand. Burgers and fries are exceptional! Very nice wait staff. Great ambiance - just feels like an old time pharmacy fountain!

My first visit to Star Drug Store was in July and I ordered the buttermilk pancakes... the best I think I have ever had. My second visit was more recent and I had the Egg's Benedict that was just as delicious as the pancakes. Thank you to the staff for the warm smiles and excellent service... will definitely visit again... More

Nice place to visit. Good service with reasonable prices. We sat outside by the street and it was nice. Had typical breakfast fare, with country potatoes. Would prefer hash browns, but all in all, great experience.

The service was excellent! The hash browns were served cold but were quickly replaced with hot fresh potatoes. Would definitely go back.
