It is old-fashioned in the best sense of the term. My kids favorite hang out spot after school. It also has a great... More

The BEST ice cream spot in town!!! Where else can you get a scoop of delicious ice cream on a sugar cone for $1 or a luscious 16oz. milkshake with real whipped cream for $4?! Charming soda counter and all sorts of useful and appealing merchandise, too. Don't miss it!

Old fashion soda fountain with great service. They were happy to split anything on the menu. I shared a malted with a friend, who needs a whole one? Grilled cheese sandwich was very retro. The hole vibe of the place is very sweet. Counter service only.

Old-fashioned soda fountain is pretty cool but rest of store is pretty mundane. They have a great location and could make this a great little store....

My mom used to work at a soda fountain, back in the 1950s, so my son and I had to check this place out. It was perfectly adorable, and our sandwiches and floats (Black Cow for him, Double Cream for me) were perfect, too. Service was fast, efficient, and very pleasant. It was a perfect place to end up for... More

After an incredible day on the slopes (and a bit of time recovering in a hot tub) we ventured into town for a historic gastro celebration - soda foundation creations, old school. Classic sodas, seasonal egg nog floats and Gingerbread milkshakes (I had a bit of mine before the pic) were incredible - as was the service. This is a... More

Love this place! Great soda fountain, ice cream joint. They also carry my favorite candle, lotion products by Thymes. Something for everyone if you're needing a quick hostess gift or something to wet your whistle.

Ice cream sodas, phosphates, egg cremes, plus all the "usual" sundaes, shakes, etc. lots of choices, friendly quick service. They also have soups and sandwiches, but we were just there for the soda fountain.

Every time we go to Steamboat Springs we stop at the soda fountain at Lyon's corner drug store. Jamie, the girl at the soda fountain was wonderful. She was friendly, efficient and made the best turtle ice cream sundae I have ever eaten. In fact we returned a couple of days later had lunch and another turtle ice cream sundae.... More

Lyon's is the place I go if I want to buy a locally made card to send to someone. They seem to have the best selection in town. I love browsing their gifts and interesting selection of lotions and soaps.
