True Aloha every visit!

There are so many things to love about this place!

Also, with my daughter's multiple, life threatening food allergies... read more

The whole family enjoyed the shave ice here. It was all very fresh and delicious. A little out of the way but not when you have a car. It wasn't busy when we visited so we got served very quickly and had no trouble getting a table.

A must stop for locals and tourists. The world would be a better place if everybody embraced the aloha spirit as deeply as Uncle Clay.

Different flavors than other places we have visited... we just couldn't do justice to the desserts since we were full from lunch at Kona Brewery. I had the pina colata... More

This place is pure Hawaii. The product is awesome no matter what way you have it. Uncle Clay was a pleasure to meet and made as feel like ohana (family). Eco-friendly and did I nation the product was awesome. Just like the name, it's pure aloha.

With only one staff member shaving ice the wait can be a bit long; however, your patience will guarantee the most delicious treat. We ordered a mini rainbow, and it was big enough to share after a full lunch.

Uncle Clay's is hands down the "Best" shaved ice we've had on our trip to Oahu. A well ran establishment, with efficient employees and a creatice and easy to order menu. kids loved it almost as much as my wife. :)

I didn't even know how much I loved shave ice until I went to Uncle Clay's. Someone at a beach told us to go there and we ended up going there several times during our stay. I particularly loved the strawberry one with ice cream. Even if it's an extra stop between the beach and your hotel or vice versa,... More

Different way of doing Shaved Ice. Simply delicious. we have the small bowl but more than enough. Not too sweet. Just perfect. Worth the drive. Not too far from Waikiki. Friendly Host.
