We were on our way back from sight seeing with our friends who have never had shave ice and of course they had to try it! It was interesting how they sandwiched the ice cream with the shave ice. We had never had it this way and it was very tasty. I was disappointed they did not have macadamia nut... More

Clean friendly service. Shave ice was good. Nice place to cool off after a day body surfing at Sandy beah or snorkeling at Hanauma Bay.

I know Matsumoto is famous but Uncle Clay is my favorite on the island. They use real fruits in their syrup and it showed in the taste. Nothing better after a long hike than icy fruity goodness. Their ice cream is top notch also

Fresh, delicious, and worth the price! You will feel their aloha with their service and products. There is a reason everyone loves Uncke Clays. Kiddies will always want to come back too!

I'm not sure why this place is the number one rated but it did lead me out to one side of the island I wouldn't have otherwise seen. Parking is easy enough, and the store is really easy to navigate. It would be nice if they had more fresh fruits or if they made fruit purees instead of syrup. It... More

This place is a little bit out of the way but is in a mall so there was lots of parking. I'd read that Uncle Clay's shave ice was fantastic, but was still surprised by how nice it was! Service was quick even though there was only one guy working, but he was really friendly. There are about 20 flavours... More

Uncle Clay's!! We love it!! They use fresh fruit to make their syrups and you can definitely tell. I really make a world of difference in the taste. I've been there prior to this trip and it was even better the 2nd time around. I always get liliko'i and guava with ice cream and dream sauce. So, so good. I... More

nothing bad, but nothing special. I have been to visit many times on the way to Hanauma, coco head, Makapuu etc.. it is very refreshing but I won't go driving only for this.

We stopped at Uncle Clays in early Feb. 2017. Shave ice is good with nice helping of very good vanilla bean ice cream. Good flavors. Ice was a bit "course" and the shave ice was made in an unusual but fine way using bowls. We have had better shave ice in the islands but Uncle Clays is very good. Recommended... More

The shave ice has a great fluffy texture and they have real fruit toppings and syrups. They have allergy friendly options that don't make you feel left out! Awesome.
