We stopped at Uncle Clays in early Feb. 2017. Shave ice is good with nice helping of very good vanilla bean ice cream. Good flavors. Ice was a bit "course" and the shave ice was made in an unusual but fine way using bowls. We have had better shave ice in the islands but Uncle Clays is very good. Recommended... More

The shave ice has a great fluffy texture and they have real fruit toppings and syrups. They have allergy friendly options that don't make you feel left out! Awesome.

Uncle Clay makes sure to remember his customers! Try it, go once then come back and he'll know who you are! Well, that's if you've conversed with him. But he's wonderful :)

We love this shave ice because it is AFFORDABLE, DELICIOUS and EASY. I mean when all of that goes into getting some shave ice...it becomes hard to resist! I personally love the strawberries and cream one, regular size is perfect to split for a couple. But also indulgent by yourself!

Best shave ice on the island❄ local ingredients, not overly sweet. Will be back to try other flavors.

Nice little shop. Good customer service. I got shave ice with strawberry flavor and azulejo bean. Next time I will get less syrup. The ice was shaved very fine. It was yummy but very sweet!

Shaved ice is one of those things you either love or just think is ok. As far as shaved ice goes, Uncle Clay's has some pretty good stuff. But what makes this place great and really earns it the "House of Pure Aloha" name is Uncle Clay himself. That's right, he's a real person. And if you're lucky enough to... More

After reading all the reviews I was super excited to try Uncle Clay's and I have to say I was disappointed. Uncle Clay's is located in a strip mall so there was lots of parking. There's not a lot of seats inside but it wasn't busy when we went (we were actually the only customers) so we found a place... More
