Line was long but it was worth it. We came last year in march and no line. June is much more busy. The shops around this place are good too.

We drove from Waikiki just for this as we haven't been to Haleiwa in a while, it was well worth the drive. Expect long lines going around the courtyard, it's top rated after all but the lines move quickly. An abundance of flavors to treat...More

We arrived to a huge line and wondered whether it would be worth it - it was. Lots of options on flavors, fun to watch the employees hand craft each ice and the line actually moved pretty quickly - even though it was so long...More

The flavors are plentiful, great prices, build your own or pick their choices of rainbow, tropical, etc. We loved the addition of sweetened condensed milk on top or a scoop of ice cream under the flavored ice. We lucked out with a five minute wait...More

These girls are like pros making the shave ice. It's so good, cooling you down on a hot day. It's worth the 2 hours wait.

The shave ice is pretty cheap, only $3.00 for a large!!! Totally cheap! One of the few inexpensive food items you can find on the island. If you add ice cream it increases another $3.50 though. There were lots of syrup flavors to choose from....More

When I saw the line - of about 25 people out the door into the courtyard waiting for shave ice - I was shocked...ice??? With syrup?? But, it was delicious! Soft ice, more like snow than the awful hard stuff they sell here in TX...More

Yes. There could possibly be products in the gift shop with peanuts. Shave ice is eaten outside so there shouldn't be any close contact with anyone who could have peanuts on them. Shave ice is just syrup and ice in a bowl.
