Great place for breakfast or lunch. Simple is good. Lots to look at while you dine. Not an extensive menu but good solid food.

Star's been around a long time, and it remains a neat place for a quick lunch. Made my annual visit today, and it's still super nostalgia time, as the other reviews explain.

We ate breakfast at the Star prior to our day of shopping on The Strand. Food was excellent and the staff attentive and friendly. Location is perfect, just a short walk from the shops and attractions.

This shows that there is a shortage of good restaurants in Galveston. The ice cream is terrible and icy and the grill in the middle is filthy. Just another "historic" tourist trap.

Excellent food and fun atmosphere. You can sit at the horseshoe soda fountain and watch them cook your food. Lots of cool history and very attentive owner and help. Will definitely make it a tradition when visiting Galveston!
