Fun place to visit with lots of neat things. You can buy gifts, souvenirs, and unusual food or seasonings to take back home or give as gifts from your trip to Galveston. Step back in time and enjoy.

Interesting place to peruse and enjoy a light lunch. Good selection of sandwiches. A few tables and chairs both inside and outside. Convenient to the railroad museum (across the street and I was able to show my ticket to re-enter the museum).

To me, this business personifies The Strand. The new location lacks a slight bit of the historic feel of their original location but the owners are the same lovely people and the history and commitment to The Strand lives on!

Great place to take a break while on the Strand. Sandwiches were fresh and tasty. Beer was good and cold also.

Great stop for eats and drinks! Dickens on the Strand is a great event and there is lots to see and eat, but the Old Strand Emporium is a must stop in kind of place!

If you are already on the strand go ahead and stop in and take a look around, but don't bother making a special trip here. Three employees were on duty when I walked in the door and I wandered the store for about 10 minutes....More

This is the place to stop in for a special sandwich and beer. More selections than one can ever want. A real experience just to step in but be sure to go all the way to the back.
