“Love this place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We stopped into this "old time" drug store/lunch counter/soda shop for breakfast. What a wonderful little out of the way place.Each of us ordered made-to-order omelettes with toast. The cook definitely has a special way with an egg when it comes to making omelettes!! Light and fluffy - yum!! Can't say enough about this wonderful little place. While you're there be sure to look at the eclectic collection of costume, jewelry and knick knacks!.

“Old Fashion Soda Fountain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Star Drug is a little old fashion soda fountain on 23rd Street. We eat there often because its just a short walk. It oozes nostalgia...right down to the bar stools, the decorations and the old timey shake machine. In fact the Coca Cola sign out front is one of the largest porcelain Coke signs still in existence. The place has been used in a couple popular movies, you can read about that on the place cards throughout the restaurant.

Even though there are lunch plates with hamburgers etc on the small menu we have only been there for breakfast. The breakfast is good but honestly nothing special...heck how can eggs, bacon and grits be over the top. Although II do find the pancakes extra fluffy. The price is inexpensive and the staff is always friendly.

If you decide to eat there make sure to pay special attention to all the items that are for sale in the main counter as you pay. Very fun...I wont spoil the surprise...I'll let you see that for yourselves.

“A nice place for a good inexpensive breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

This is a bit of Galveston's history! Locals remember Star Drugstore as a Pharmacy and lunch counter/soda fountain. No longer a drugstore, It's been converted into a breakfast/lunch counter and gift shop. They have a good breakfaast for a very reasonable price.

“Great place for a lunch break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

The food was awesome and great value for the dollar. We ate here twice, the same person waited on us both times and the service was very attentive but not hovering! Loved the atmosphere.
