Temporarily closed

We stopped by for ice cream sodas but the fountain is closed while they work on the building. We were so disappointed because we'd been last summer and it was awesome!

I love vanilla malts, and I am proud to say that this place had the best vanilla malts I have ever tasted. A very cute drug store and a fantastic food/beverage area.

Best ice cream in town and most reasonably priced. The sandwiches are hefty with a small price. Real sodas....a lesson in history.

I have switched over to the pharmacy at Lyon Drug a couple of years ago...and never looked back. I also buy Xmas presents there and eat at their counter. It's a lovely place for spending time, browse greeting cards, buy trinkets and cosmetics as well as office supplies. It is definitely a locals' hangout!

This is a drugstore, where you can find everything from band-aids and greeting cards to candles and souvenirs. But you also find the old fashioned counter where you can sit on a stool and get a sandwich or a milkshake! Great place to stroll in, grab a Root Beer Float or a Coke Float or a milkshake of some kind... More

Adorable old drugstore on the main street in downtown. We went for the ice cream treats. The area is small, cozy and manned by a super friendly girl. My son had his first ice cream soda, my daughter enjoyed a sundae. Lots of locals stopping by for ice cream as we were there- loved that feel. Prices are reasonable and... More

We popped in here after dinner for ice cream. We arrived 45 minutes before the drug store closed to find out that the ice cream counter closes 30 minutes before the drug store closes, so note that. The ice cream was great and only $1 per scoop! The staff was very nice and professional. A fun experience!

Just love it when I find a place like this. It's a real pharmacy so if you're visiting and in need of some advice from a druggist, this is the place. All the rest that you'd expect - greetings cards, toiletries, souvenirs. The real treat here is the twelve seat soda fountain. Our boys haven't seen a counter like this... More

Simply an old fashion drug store with a centerpiece grill and ice cream bar. They make the best milk shakes around and the service is great. Not a high fashion restaurant but a place for a summer stop for a lunch counter menu.
