We stopped in after spending the afternoon at the beach down the street. The line was not too bad and the 3 young men behind the counter were top notch and worked quickly and were very attentive to our family of 6 and making sure...More

This was only my second experience with shave ice - the first being Matsumotos in Haleiwa. One thing I really liked was that they had a separate selection of natural syrups (so not electric coloured and artificial!), which I was looking for. Very tasty. What...More

Very good product, they have natural flavors to pick from, which I picked strawberry. It was very good. The line was long and I waited about 20 minutes. Not very efficient in getting their customers out the door. I agree with he other reviews that...More

We stay in Kailua 2-3 times every year and Island Snow is the best shave ice joint on the island by far. Many flavors and combinations and they pack the shave ice so it won't fall apart. Here's a tip, get the icing glaze on...More

I'm not a shaved ice fan but someone had recommended we try Island Snow. There are two locations within a mile of each other. There are options for ice cream and a whipped cream-like substance to be added to the shaved ice. I went the...More

Island Snow's got a lot of star power behind it, to be sure. The customer service is great, too. It just still didn't measure up to Matsumoto Shave Ice in terms of the syrup flavors (we were surprised we could taste the difference!) and it's...More
