Stopped by after a filling diner on a hot night in Maui. Ordered a medium ( big baby?) with vanilla ice cream and 3 flavors: mojito, piña colada, and sharks blood( strawberry coconut). I really liked it and thought it was refreshing. The syrups weren't too sweet and the ice was smooth not crunchy. I would have liked a little... More

Without joining the debate on where the best Shave Ice served I highly recommend Local Boy Snack Shop. Staff are friendly and accomodating. Great assortment of flavors. Servings are about the same size and price as other vendors however many of the "extras" which other vendors charge for are free here including ice cream at the bottom of your cup... More

We had just finished surfing with the Maui Beach Boys at the beach across from here, and the staff at the Maui Beach Boys recommended this place to us. It was a great place, with generous servings of shaved ice at a pretty good price. They had a large collection of flavors and free extras, such as ice-cream and gummy... More
