Service is great. The shaved ice was excellent. Then along come your servers who sit with you and ask how your day is going. Such Aloha Spirit. You leave satisfied and smiling.

The experience is the only thing that outshines the flavors! Nothing better than spending a day at the beach and ending it with a tasty treat from Clay! He is a true ambassador of Aloha.

I used to go to Uncle Clay's former store at the Aina Haina Shopping Center, and Uncle Clay was the best part about that store. This shave ice store is unbelievably good! The shave ice is fine, and the flavors are really great!

Had the pleasure of meeting Uncle Clay in person. He is a "living" representation of the "Aloha Spirit". To talk story with him reminds me of the ʻol days when people got time or made time to develop sincere relationships as a small community lifestyle. love this place.

One of the best shave ice locations on Oahu with friendly service. I ordered the green tea signature shave ice but I don't remember the name of it but it was simply incredible.

We love Uncle Clay's and come here after swimming whenever we're on the windward side for a beach day. The toppings and syrups are all locally sourced whenever available and they're REAL, not junk syrup/sugar water like other places. Uncle Clay is there a lot and make a point of saying "Aloha" to all who come by (especially the keiki!).... More

Pure Aloha is what you'll find with Uncle Clay and his aloha ambassadors and pure ingredients mixed how you want make da best shave ice experience you will have while visiting Hawaii. If Clay is there he will certainly introduced you to some local ohana who is there to share some aloha. Don't be shy.

Uncle Clay is an institution in Aina Haina in spite of being marginalized by the owners of Aina Haina Shopping Center. Shame on them!!

We visited there after eat brunch which locates near the shave ice shop. Kids ordered kids size but it is still big for me. So I recommend to order kids size for women. They have creative selection. Please enjoy it after shopping or eating as dessert.
