Worth a stop!

Stopped here for a cool drink on a hot day. Sat at the counter. Enjoyed hand made drinks, including a few that are not commonly found. It was a brief , but very pleasant break in a long day. Would recommend and would certainly return.

Our grandkids love coming here, because they can get an ice cream treat just the way they want it while sitting at the counter and watching it being created. The staff is usually a local high school student and super friendly. A great place to slow down and enjoy. In fact, if you are in a hurry, you might want... More

Small and friendly, large servings, and much fun to sit on the barstools and enjoy an old fashioned soda fountain in a real drugstore!

Great idea for ice cream lovers but in reality it was either a bad day or bad timing. Went out of our way to come for ice cream. When he came inside the line was at the door. A grand total of one person was working and we left after 15 minutes.

We saw "Soda Fountain" from across the street and ran over! Everyone knows this means fun. It was busy so we waited for seats at the bar. We ordered a large strawberry malt...so large it was split in two for us and was plenty. A young lady was the "soda jerk" and she meant business. Her hands and arms were... More

Traveled with two adults and four children (15, 13, 11 & 11). We read about this place on Trip Advisor. It was easy to find and the actual food (grilled cheese) and the desserts (sundaes & root beer floats) were very good. The downfall was the staff and the accommodations. Unless the owners of this place live under a rock,... More

We sat at the counter with our friends from Scotland and we all had our first ice cream soda. It was fun watching the girls make them and they all tasted delicious. The store itself has everything from aspirin to baby gifts.

I have lived here for over 34 years, and my kids favorite place was always at the soda fountain at Lyon Drugs! You can show the children of today some of the past, and yes.... they still make sodas from the syrup and soda water!! The banana splits are really awesome, and your choice of ingredients!! The corner drug store,... More

This classic old drug store is on Lincoln Way, the main street of Steamboat Springs. A must see when visiting Steamboat, it still has a soda fountain.

The pharmacists at Lyon's really care. They really take their time with you and can answer just about any question you may have. The soda fountain is a classic. My grandmother (now 93) remembers getting tin roof sundaes there when she was young. . . and now I do too. Great prices at the soda fountain. I also can never... More
