Read the reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor before going and thought it can't be that bad. There were reviews of not smiling, grouchy, mean staff, Soup Nazi for ice cream and custard, etc. All confirmed. Older blonde woman waited on us without a smile or...More

After dinner one night we walked over and the line was out the door. But the line moved fast and they had so many fresh flavors. Great fun place to get some ice cream

When we 1st came to HI, we would go to Uncle Eddy's for ice cream & mini golf every night. Now, it costs $17 just for 1 adult & 1 child to play mini golf. We've only gone once this trip.

The ice cream was delicious, especially the hattaras sunrise! When we went in, the smell was a little bizarre, however. It kind of smelled like moth balls. There was a strange mixture of things being sold inside, including a shark vacuum cleaner, paintings, knick knacks,...More

Cute little shack with a miniature golf as a added plus! They offer many different toppings and have soft and hand dipped ice cream. There is also a gift shop of sorts - small handmade shell jewelery and picture frames to name a few.
