Having been home to a pharmacy, gift shop, and soda fountain for over 100 years, this iconic location at the historic Squire Building is guaranteed to evoke the spirit of the cherished but nearly-extinct American family drug store.

Good Thing I Don't Live In The Boat!!

My favorite place in the Boat! And there's a lot of great food spots. If you love ice cream the chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream comes from Mile High Ice Creamery in Denver. The other favors are Dreyers (blah). Banana Split, Hot Fudge Sundae with marshmallow cream, OMG!! Red Velvet shake too $8. Look at these pics!

Hard to do review on eating an amazing coke float. Great place at the most friendly small town in America.

We enjoyed the commodore of the staff, they were all pleasantly kind to one another and the drugstore itself has a lot to offer. The ice cream is lacking in flavor, tastes full of artificial flavors and corn syrup. I think cold stone (coming soon) will unfortunately give them a run for their money. I would recommend they find an... More

This is one of the must do experiences in Steamboat. Sit at the counter and order a chocolate soda and enjoy the ambience of being at a soda bar with a knowledgeable server and the best ice cream in town.

Those of us who live here are all regulars of the soda fountain at Lyon's Corner Drug. Order the grilled tuna salad sandwich on sourdough. The shakes, sundays and cones are old fashioned, generous and delish. They used to serve old fashioned phosphates but the phosphate syrup came under federal regulation because it can be used to make a bomb!... More

What a great place. Old fashioned soda fountain treats as well as a great lunch! Portions are generous especially the soda fountain treats! Jamie made our day with chocolate soda, lime mist and a hot fudge milkshake. Highly recommend this friendly warm place!

A great soda fountain. With all sorts of ice creams and sundaes. Prices are reasonable and portions are substantial. We had waffle cones and one scoop. It was delicious.

We had a couple different grilled sandwiches, an awesome shake and sundaes. The young lady working there was a local girl and very friendly. The food was great and reasonable. The ONLY problem you could have is it being too busy to find a seat. Drop in early or late after lunch if you have to. We were there about... More
