Fabulous store

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

This is the place in downtown Steamboat to pick up that conditioner you forgot and to get bandaids for that trip down the trail. They also have souvenirs, knick-nacks and a soda fountain that was a couple of days from being open when I was there. They do not have a lot of stock, so you may need to travel... More

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!
