Definitely a tourist trap with a bunch of goofy nick-knacks for sale. We sat at the bar and both had the patty melt. They were greasy, messy, and really good! The service was fast and effective without being obtrusive. Great little place for a shake or a malt (we did not have one) and the food was good as well.... More

Very old drugstore downtown Galveston. Wonderful place for breakfast and lunch. It takes you back to the old malt shops. A must when visiting Galveston Texas.

Used to be a must stop in Galveston - but recently just average! Burgers are good - servers not so friendly! More of a gift shop now and feels less like old pharmacy!

It was fun to educate our child about a drug store. We just so happened to be there for the 100th birthday of the soda fountain and received free cake. Food was average as we expected it to all be homemade.

A cute little diner in heart of historic Galveston. We just stopped for a milk shakes, but the burgers look good. The décor is nice , and this is a good spot to buy quirky gifts The lady at the counter had been to Sligo! I was impressed!

The Star Drug Store is no longer a drug store. It is a nice little cafe serving breakfast and lunch. Fun atmosphere and you can sit at an old fashioned soda bar or tables if you prefer. BLT was very good.

Great 50's vibe. I had a their Tomoto Bisque Soup along with my grilled cheese sandwich and loved the flavor. The music playing was oldies of course and when I slipped into song the lady at the next table joined in. Of course I topped off lunch with an old fashioned hot fudge sundae.
