We had Hawaiian shave ice years ago at the infamous Matsumoto's Shave Ice in Hawaii. Getting our shave ice here brought back great memories! It was delicious. Try it with ice cream! I got the Coconut Lover's. Dreaming about it right now!

Three size options -kiddie, small and large. Options above kiddie are just way too big. Daughter loved her customized flavor, son didn't care for the rainbow. Liked the location

Island Oasis Hawaiian Shave Ice is the perfect way to wrap up a hot busy day at Mt. Rushmore and in the Keystone area! The shaved ice hits the spot. The ice is shaved pretty fine, the portions are extremely large. The syrup very good. There are lots of varieties to try. I always try the strawberry shave ice everywhere... More

I took my boys here yesterday and we loved it! My older son and I had the Strawberry Cheesecake flavor with a Snow Cap and I think I could've eaten the large (which is massive) instead of the kiddie size! ;-) Can't wait to go back for more!

Having been to all the known places in the Hawaiian Islands, this place is actually better than most of them. In fact it's as good as Island Snow in Kailua and better than the ones on North Shore.

I would drive to Keystone (11 hours from home) just for this treat! Guy running it (the owner) was awesome! It really is the best sno cone I have ever had. Reasonably priced. Can't say enough good things about this place! This guy is onto something! My kids and husband agree!

This is really good shaved ice. Perfect consistency, no big chunks and the syrup selection is awesome. Perfect for a hot day in SD!
