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.

Be sure to read the history of this place that is still standing after fire and Mother Nature.We chose to sit at the counter and enjoyed Coke products and sandwiches while our eyes took in the decor.

One of the best Ruben Sandwiches I've ever had. The Rye bread is made fresh by the owner's father. I had the in house made potato salad, very good, have to try chocolate malt. Iconic Star Drug Store.

If you are looking for a place for an old-fashioned breakfast cooked right and served hot, this is the place for you! we sat in a booth near the soda bar and could watch our breakfast prepared. When it was done, it was carried right to our table. Great service!

We ate lunch here and enjoyed the food, service, and unique atmosphere. The Reuben Sandwich was delicious and salad was good. The coke float was refreshing. Liked the feel and look of an old fashioned drug store. Food is cooked right behind counter in plain view so you can watch if you want. There are tables if you don't want... More

So fresh and what a sweet waitress, she knew we were hot and hungry and she nailed it. A sandwich sampler? How Devine, I get to try three flavors on a crossoint. Adorable and unique, with some limited drug store items and candy. Made me happy I did not rush to a chain franchise.
