Stopped here after a wine tasting across the street. Nice select of different types of ground burgers. I had the lamb burger. Good flavor and cooked right for lamb. Service is kind of self serve. Will stop again if we are nearby. Mahalo

The ranch beef is raised on the rich green hillsides with occassional treats of “cow candy”.....the skins of pineapple used in wine production. A pleasant outdoor patio with a nice view.

We went to Ulupalakua Ranch when we came back from the Haleakala Sunrise and it was a good decision. They have the best burgers on maui, but beware of the hot sauce.. its really hot.

Stopped here for lunch at the end of a scenic drive. Great scenery and souvenirs. Not too impressed with venison and beef ono plate lunch. Beef was very dry and tasteless, would not recommend this choice.

Worth a trip to experience the “country” ranch idea. Lots of great gift ideas. Didn’t get a red wiener but maybe next time!

When you come on up to visit us at Ulupalakua, you'll find it's not just about the drive. These days, it's about the food. "We're becoming a food destination," says Will Munder, Executive Chef of Ulupalakua Ranch Store & Grill. Mosey up to the counter, and you'll still find all the classic Ranch favorites, but the good stuff just got better. Now everything is made from scratch and as local as we can get it. The Ulupalakua lamb, beef and famous elk are part of our commitment to serve only meat from the Ranch or from Maui. And thanks to Upcountry's abundance. The bustling Grill gets crates of fresh local lettuce, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, pineapple, herbs and more, every morning. Reminders of times gone by are everywhere inside the Ulupalakua Store, from the sepia-toned photos on the walls to the cowboy hats on the shelves. The Store is a happy place of simple things, good things. Our motto here at Ulupalakua Ranch is: "Happy People." Plain and simple.
