Heard good reviews about this place so we decided to check it out. Unfortunately our breakfast (4 people) all came out cold and one order was wrong. Hash browns were cold and chewy, breakfast sandwich had cheese that was not even melted. Grits were cold...More

This is a cool place. And, most importantly, the food is good. One note, there is a sign that says wait to be seated when you walk in. No one worries about it. Just grab a seat.

Whenever we are in Galveston, we always enjoy a trip to Star Drug for breakfast. They have yummy breakfast sandwiches on a croissant, pancakes, delicious bacon, and your basic eggs and toast. Ther are even little tables outside if that is what you prefer.

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.

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...More

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...More
