“Old Fashioned Chocolate Sodas!”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

These are tough to find and are a great treat. Enjoyed it very much. Guys next to us had delicious-looking grilled cheese on sourdough. Very limited menu, but the chocolate soda is all you really need!

“Fun family break for ice cream”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Great shakes and waffle cone. Fun to eat at bar and listen to other patrons' stories and reminiscing. Wish they would have warned me that the shakes would be enough for two!

“Great ice cream in a nostalgic setting”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I must admit at my advanced age of 46 I had never seen a real old time soda fountain but this seemed like the real deal to me. My kids didn't quite know what to make of this place other than it had ice cream, and great ice cream at that! We all got single or double scoop waffle cones and my one son got a vanilla milkshake. For a modest 13.50 we all had full, happy bellies. I agree with the reviewer who said they could use some more help behind the counter, but the 2 girls who were there were very friendly and efficient. Not much room to sit at the counter but we were happy to take our treats outside and eat in front of the store.

“Short Handed”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We stepped into Lyons during the July 4th parade for a quick ice cream. There was only one person working the counter and we had to wait almost 15 plus minutes to speak to her. She was very friendly when she got to us but they should have expected a rush during the parade and given her some help.
