This review is just for the Shave Ice and Popsicles at the Kealia Ranch Store on Highway 11 near Captain Cook. Excellent Shave Ice flavors and the homemade popsicles were great. Bring cash, though. They don't have a credit card reader, so they take an imprint of your credit card. I didn't even think merchants were allowed to do that... More

I think the claim for "best shaved ice on the island" must be true! We enjoyed 3 different flavored syrups in delicious shaved ice. The grass-fed beef raised right on the ranch there is available for purchase, at good prices (better than mainland U.S., I think). I enjoyed browsing through their gift shop; they have a variety of island and... More

Easy to miss while traveling south from Kona, this a great place to stop for some tasty shave ice. They have about fifteen flavors, and one can have up to three on any single serving. And don't forget the condensed milk over the whole thing. They make a delicious shave ice. They also sell grass-fed beef, as well as popsicles.... More

We purchased grass-fed ground beef and steak, and liliko'i popsicles, from the Kealia Ranch Store during a recent visit to South Kona. The beef had an excellent flavor, and was comparable in price to what we pay on the mainland for grass-fed beef. It was far tastier than the "local beef" we paid top dollar for at Merriman's Restaurant in... More

We have been going to the Big Island for 8 years and we always stop and visit with the store manager Lynne. The store prices are very reasonable and they have many gift choices from local artists. I always come back to the Mainland with unique gifts for my friends. I recommend that on your way to the Volcano, you... More

The Kealia Ranch Store has the best Hawaiian shave ice - they make their own fresh syrup that isn't sticky sweet. Try the passion fruit shave ice (really the very best ever) or the mango popscicles - raves for both. Also they have a great store with unique, quality crafts and gifts from a lot of different artists. You can't... More
