WE WANT UNCIES YES WE DO WE WANT UNCIES HOW BOUT YOU. this was our mantra all vacation because Uncle's Shave Ice is THAT incredible. My younger sister kept her spoon and still has it saved in her bedroom over one year later because she...wants to forever cherish the taste of Uncles. We hope to be back someday post Covid.More

Coming back from Spouting Horn we4 stopped here for a shaved ice. Really good and glad that we pulled in to the area and found it.

We visited Hawaii for two weeks and never tried shave ice until we were on the way to the airport to head home. Wish we'd tried it sooner because it would have been a daily go-to! It was delicious. We were impressed with the portion...size, but don't have anything to compare it to. We had a nice, conversational guy help us.More

Best shave Ice I’ve ever had. And I’ve had a lot of shave Ice. I think the bad reviews must of had an off day. Get one of the combos or the shave snow. Delicious.

The reviews make it sound better than it actually is. The shave ice was crunchy, and the flavors were mediocre. The fruit flavors had very few similarities to their namesakes, and the fruit flavors lacked actual flavors. However, the root beer was quite good, all...the toppings were delicious, and the staff were incredibly polite. Good, but not great.More

We had both shaved ice and shaved snow. Shaved snow is a must have. It is like nothing you have ever had ! We had strawberry and loved it.

This was next to where we ate lunch so kids definitely wanted their dessert. Their flavors are way too sweet. Not one of my favorites when it comes to shaved ice.

Return visit, shave ice done right - light and fluffy like snow. There are only two sizes and I wish they had a kid's size which would have been the perfect amount. The small is still too big and you get half way through and...it's too much.More

Try the shaved ice with an ice cream under and coconut cream over, the staff will explain, they are great. This is the best shaved ice that I experienced on the island and I tried quite a few. I went back twice in one day!...Do yourself a favor and get a straw right away to enjoy the melting mixed floors of the ice.More

Definitely check out Kauai Backcountry Adventures for zipline and tubing! Also, we liked the Safari Helicopter Tour. Brennecke's is a good restaurant and Duke's Canoe Club is fun and tasty. Steel grass Farm Chocolate Tour... More
