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

Delicious and more affordable than others. Mango ice cream was awesome and service was friendly. Didn't have to try another place after going here! You also get a buy one get one free at their other location if you present your receipt!

Best shave ice I have ever had and my kids would attest to this as well. A trip to Local Boys shave ice was a daily event for the week we were on Maui. We usually have a daily ice cream on such a trip but this shave ice won the day. Some tips * Baby size is more than... 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

Were looking to get some great shaved ice and Local Boy hit the spot. Their servings are generous and love the concept of some coconut ice cream a the bottom. Friendly staff and right off the main Kihei strip.

There are lots of shaved ice places in Maui. Our family favourite is Local Boys (both South and West). They have great variety of toppings and lots of free extras, like ice-cream and gummy bears. Great service as well. This location takes cash only.

We have visited this shave ice stand every trip to Maui for a few years; but things must have changed in the past year. No longer had coconut ice cream, just vanilla; and gummy bears were on top not on the bottom. Also the girl working was having a conversation with friends about her plans for the evening while we...
