Loved this cool little independent restaurant away from the tourist traps. Reasonably priced, great atmosphere, delicious chocolate malt! Can't wait to go back!! I can't recommend enough that you stop by this place if you enjoy one of a kind places that aren't generic chains.

Nice to go in and have a peak at the decor and maybe a soda. Half empty yet the service was rushed and the cashier blamed me for not liking my club sandwich, which was missing a middle piece of bread and difficult to eat.

I made Galveston a day trip from Houston, as a tribute to Glen Campbell and that song I remember so well, and it turned out to be a good day out. Star drug store was a nice lunch stop, I had the Caesar burger and a root beer. The place has a bit of character in a olde time kind... More

My kids wanted to have a root beer float so we stopped in for lunch. They slurped up their floats and seemed to enjoy their food as well. I couldn't decide what I wanted so I tried the sandwich sampler, pimento cheese, tuna salad and chicken salad on a croissant cut in 3 pieces. It was very good!

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.
