Yum!

I read all of the reviews and we decided to try it. I had to scout the place first since my daughter is allergic to nuts. They said yes. The girl was nice enough to change her gloves when she made my daughter's dessert, so nice. We happened to be the 100th dessert, so we got one of them for... read more

I finally made it to Uncle Clay's after almost a year on Oahu. How I managed to come here before, I have no idea, but it is the best shave ice I've had to date. What makes their shop different are the homemade syrups. They taste like real fruit and are paired with delicious vanilla ice cream. Well worth the... More

This place is really untouchable. I have eaten Shave Ice all over the island, and this is the best by far. Don't get swindled by others telling you that such and such is the best, cause they are not. This is IT! it is divine. I live on the mainland, and would travel to have one of these soulful confectioneries... More

So refreshing on a hot summer day, Uncle Clay himself is often there to open the door and greet his customers with Aloha..... President Obama needs to try this place. As we all know he and his family are big fans of shave ice.

Uncle Clay's shave ice is a special local treat that is refreshing any time of the day. If you are fortunate to be served by Uncle Clay himself, you will be impressed with his warm and friendly manner. My kids loved him when they were young, and still love him as adults....and the shave ice too!

even after a year that man can still remember who you are and what your last conversation was with him. Amazing every single time. He spreads the aloha spirit to everyone.

Uncle Clay is a very nice man, and he's opened a place where he can make you feel totally at home while you enjoy the cold sweetness of shave ice. His flavors are all natural and all tasty, and the serving sizes are above-average in size. The price is a bit higher than other places, but you'll be glad you... More

Whenever we have a chance we go to Uncle Clay's for a refreshing break. Not only is the shaved ice the best, but the people that work there (especially Uncle Clay) are a lot of fun. The shave ice flavors are all natural and the ice cream is also fantastic. Lately they have had some special combination flavors that we... More

The shave ices are well made and there is no scrimping on the ingredients. They are filled with great ice cream and prepared and served by very courteous employees. If you're really fortunate, you might receive a warm aloha visit from Uncle Clem himself.
