Uncle Clay certainly offers you some serious Aloha, and does it with a heaping teaspoon of sugar on top. We came as a group and ordered the Tropical Delight and Uji Kintoki. The winner was definitely the Uji Kintoki as the Tropical Delight was a...More

The shave ice had very good flavoring and the combinations make it interesting- could come back several times to try lots of different toppings. However, the ice is fairly coarse so if you prefer soft ice go to a different place.

Good selection of local snacks, like shaved ice, just what you want on a hot day or after a day at the beach. Easy and convenient location with lots of parking.
