Description: Located in the heart of downtown Steamboat Springs, Lyon's offers the unique services and welcoming atmosphere of a genuine, old-fashioned drug store. 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.

In addition to having toys, pharmaceuticals, and post cards for a traveler you can stop at the small soda & grill counter, hop on a stool and have a an old fashioned Sunday with a Cherry on Top. There is also a large plastic horse outside for posing pictures.

Lots of nice gift items in a reasonable price range. Lots of Steamboat / Colorado souvenir gifts. The soda fountain was prepared to make all of the old standards while you sat on an elevated soda fountain stool. Not many of those around any more. This place seems to stay open late at least when the weather's nice. I drove past at 7:oo pm and it was still open on a week night.

There are so few of these left and if you're in Steamboat you must stop by Lyon's Drug and grab a seat at the soda fountain. Great variations of sundaes, floats and sodas. Part of the experience was watching the girl behind the counter preparing all different kinds of ice cream creations. She was on top of her game and waited on everyone in a timely fashion. She also checked us out after we were done. It was hard to decide what to get and I wish we had more time to taste everything before our vacation ended.

I had never had the whole soda fountain experience before, so I was excited to see one in Steamboat. I sidled up to the fountain and there were a ton of people there. After watching the lady working, it was easy to see why--she is truly on top of her game. She moves quickly, is very friendly and professional--truly amazing at what she does. My egg cream was delicious, thank you very much. A very cool experience from start to finish

A trip to Steamboat Springs is not complete until you stop by Lyon Drug in downtown. They have an old-fashioned soda fountain with stools - just like the good old days. You will have a hard time deciding which ice cream to choose - lots of options. Our favorite - the banana malt with caramel. Great fun for the kids as they have never seen anything like it.
