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.

“best cards and fun things”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

We have been here before and made a point to return. I especially like the card collection, including local artists. Also like their selection of table linens, towels, placemats, metal objects, and other fun things. It is worth a visit!

“Ice Cream at the Soda Fountain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Take your kids to Lyon's Drug and stand in line to sit at the Soda Fountain. It will be a good memory, for sure. I loved soda fountains as a kid and now our kids will have that, too. The store is okay but the fountain is special.

“Sunday with a Cherry on Top”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

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.

“Fun Store Old-Time Soda Fountain with the Works”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

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.

“Great soda fountain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

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.
