A must for visitors and locals alike! Our shave ice is made old style with soft fluffy shaved ice saturated with a wide variety of delicious flavors. We offer ice cream on the bottom, mochi, azuki beans and cream over the top all at no extra charge. You won't find shave ice as good as ours anywhere else on the island. This is the real deal, you'll keep coming back for more! We also sell Roselani ice cream and many other local favorites. Try our location in Kihei too.

YUM YUM YUM!

The first culinary experience on Maui and well worth the expectations. Crowded but worth the wait. Unbelievable combinations of floors and ice creams. The LAVA FLOW is a sure hit. Could have stayed there all day in comsuption mode! Loved it! Loved it! LOVED IT!

The shave ice here is great! Sometimes the line gets pretty long, but it is generally worth the wait.

Shaved ice was excellent - specifically the big daddy which had vanilla ice cream on the bottom and cream on the top. Worth the $5!

Local Boys Shaved ice is a real treat. They have an extensive selection of flavors and suggested combinations. I got the Rhino and enjoyed every single bite.

We arrived on Front Street with the car parked and had about 45 minutes to kill before we needed to check in for the excursion we booked. No problem, let's get a shave ice and walk around town! Except... what seemed like should have been a quick stop turned into a very long wait. There was a line, don't get... More

They offer other items, but we just had shave ice.... More

Look no further, this it it! Every combination of favors, ice cream and mochi in the bottom, cream on top, bountiful servings in three generous sizes! What more could one want on a warm Hawaiian sunny day? Friendly staff, two locations, a Lahaina and Kihei treat!

We were practically regulars at the end of our trip as we went numerous time to this location! The server was such a sweetheart, and felt like a friend. It was sad to say goodbye! The Shave Ice was fantastic!!!! Ice cream on the bottom.. oh yeah. ;) You must go here.

Local Boys has very good shaved ice. They offer a scoop of ice cream under the shaved ice and several toppings at no additional charge.
