“Hawaii's shaved ice has Nothing on Keystone, SD's shaved ice!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We were just there visiting Mt. Rushmore and enjoying the charming nearby town. We stopped by this shaved ice place and LOVED IT! There were so many flavors to choose from, the size of the kids serving was Huge and the service was phenomenal! My daughter mistakenly order me the wrong flavor, so the gentleman over heard and brought me the flavor that I originally wanted “leche” (milk) on the house. So I ended up with 2 huge ice cones; luckily my children didn’t mind helping me out =)…

“Better shaved ice than Hawaii”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This shaved ice store in Keystone will blow your mind with the size and value of their shaved ice. They have 32 flavors and 5 sugar free flavors and it is better than anything you can get in Hawaii. The owner takes great pride in his product and he serves his guests well.The Hawaiian shaved ice store next to Dakota Leather Outlet is a must stop and try when in Keystone.

“Yes, I like Pina Coladas”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

This place has the best shaved ice I have ever had, the sizes are huge and the value if great. Nothing nicer than sitting on a bench soaking up the sun in the Black Hills enjoying a shaved ice from here. No cheap sno cone type of holders , these are cute flower looking plastic ones, so you can take your time to enjoy it. He has dozens of flavors and mixes them to make exciting tempting flavors, I knew what I wanted a Pina Colada shaved ice to remind me of being on the islands and it didn't disappoint. Families will love the variety of sizes and choices and the prices are really fair. Don't miss it.
