Description: 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.

We stopped here twice following boating excursions out of Lahaina. Local Boys is located on Front St. almost directly across from the Banyan Tree so it's very convenient when you get off the boat and want a cool treat. Portions are large (we got the large size and it was plenty) and they have a great variety of flavors--57 or... More

Used to be best on island, now the worst! Portion is half of what it used to be. Served with flat wooden stick instead of a spoon that makes it taste horrible! Also now served in some kind of recycled cardboard bowl. I was looking forward to getting my shave ice but am now searching for a new vendor!

We come to Maui every two years; consequently some of our favorite places disappear. We found Local Boys this year and it is every bit as good as our 'disappeared' favorite. So we know dub this, 'the best shaved ice on the island!'

Our three children (23,20,11) love Local Boys for shaved ice. They will pass many other places along the way in Lahaina, but they say it is worth the walk! The ice is so smooth, so many flavors to choose from and even free gummy bears on the bottom are an option!

Fluffiest shaved ice ever. Plus all the extras are included so you pay the price that is marked. Generous services and extras - plus their home made toppings - the Kauai Cream topping is not to be missed. We like to get the Snow White with the ice cream and Kauai cream- not to be missed. I also really like... More

Right in the center of Lahaina, Local Boys Shave Ice is not to be missed: definitely the best shave ice on Maui! They have about 40 flavors to choose from and you can add ice cream (a choice of flavors) in your cup, free of charge! Tip: head to the other side of the street to eat your cup under... More

We always loved this place and went almost every other day during our annual trip to kahana. This year the shaved ice was nothing to brag about. Service was also not good. Ice not packed much, no free extras offered or mentioned as in past visits and not that great. Usually the staff are super friendly and great about making... More

This was my first time trying Shave Ice, and like someone else mentioned, these aren't your mainland Sno-Cones! We ended up getting one before hitting the beach and another on the way back. The first time, we did vanilla macadamia (they grind the macadamia right into the ice cream right there!) on the bottom, and topped it with pineapple, strawberry,... More
