Stopped by after hiking to Fish Creek Falls for something to drink. This very busy soda fountain was worth the wait. Good, old-fashioned drinks!

Really delicious ice cream treats - lots of choices and very affordably priced. There's always a line and only a few spots to sit at the soda fountain but it's easy to take your treat and wander around town while you enjoy it.

This unique little soda fountain was the highlight of our day. First for Italian Sodas, then later in the week for Banana Splits. It brought back the soda fountain treats from our teenage days. A delightful place to get your treats. The store has lios of cute little different gifts as well.

OMG, I haven't had a root beer float (black cow) like this in years! The keys are the syrup, hard ice cream, and method of production (time consuming and a bit tedious but well worth it). I'd never been into Lyon's until yesterday, but it most certainly will be on our itinerary for our next visit.

My husband got the classic massive banana split and I got the hot fudge sundae and they were perfect and exactly like you remembered from growing up. The lady serving us was very quick and efficient. There were only 9 seats around the... More

We stopped in for a milkshake after mountain biking and I was in heaven. I like my shakes made with hard ice cream, milk and chocolate. That is exactly what I got. It was delicious! The counter only seats about 9 so we had to walk around a bit or wait until some seats opened...or get them to go. I... More

We visited Lyon's Soda Fountain twice during our stay in Steamboat and we just loved it. We like the 1950's soda fountain decor. The kids liked sitting at the counter to eat their ice cream. Each scoop is only $2, which is a good deal, and they give you nice big scoops. The next time we visited, 2 of us... More
