We'd never had shaved ice but now we're hooked! The was such a delicious sweet treat! Mango cream ice cream at the bottom, packed with fluffy ice shavings on top, and then drenched in vanilla cream, strawberry and orange syrup......out of this world good! The prices were reasonable and the lady that prepared our orders was extremely nice. This place... More

Shaved ice like this is not something we find in the midwest. The combination of ice cream at the bottom, the way they prepare the shaved ice, up to 3 ingredients on the ice, and the cream that tops it all off, this shaved ice has an incredible and refreshing taste. If you are in Lahaina, take advantage of the... More

One of the things I couldn't leave Hawaii without trying was shaved ice. My kids thought I was crazy... it's just a snow cone, Mom! HA. We stopped at Local Boys after a surf lesson at Goofy Foot surf school (GO THERE!!!! You won't regret it!). My kids got the ice with the ice cream. My husband and I just... More

I initially found this place on yelp and I am so glad that I did, the free ice cream under your shaved iced was awesome but the best part to me was the cream they put on top! Def coming back here again.

We loved Local Boys shave ice. I love that all of the extras are included in the price. The smallest size is more than enough for one person. So good.

You know it's good by the long line. Try a Root Beer Shaved Ice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the bottom. Smaller size a generous serving. Feel free to share.

Still the best shave ice we have had on Maui! No matter how busy they are they are always so friendly and genuine. We try others but always come back to Local Boys!!

This is the best shaved ice anywhere...not just Maui. Went twice while we were on the island and tried to go on our way to the airport, but they were not open yet. Great flavour selections, great ice, great value. Can you ship? I wish!

Been to all top 3 shaved ice in Maui, Local Boys have best looking workers but they are very unorganized, they were constantly having to search for flavors because the bottles were not mark properly or lacked any order. There were at least 8 people in line and one employee disappears for 15 minutes on there phone, which turned our... More
