They use a variety of ice creams which makes them much better. You can't visit the island without a Jo Jo's.

Had the special: banana, strawberry, pineapple colada over macadamia nut ice cream. Huge serving and about half the price of other stands we have seen

Everything was fantastic and the employees were efficient and friendly! The macadamia ice cream was an amazing addition to the shaved ice.

We use to always get shave ice at the original clubhouse in Waimea. The flavors seems weak and they are over priced at least in Hanalei. Acceptable but there's better.

Delicious! One small was more than enough for 2 people. Ice. Cream. Perfect! My daughter is allergic to nuts and they were careful and cautious with nut ingredients.

Delicious! These were so big and tasty. Three people could barely eat 2 smalls. The picture tells it all!
