I have to say this was the worst shaved ice. We have been coming to Maui for the last four year's. On our first trip we tried local boys and I was unimpressed. Being that we were last here in the first week of August (when the hurricanes were to hit) we decided to try local boys again, just as... More

We have been to Hawaii many times and we always get shave ice - you have to - you're in Hawaii! Local Boys is the best. They have the best flavors of both shave ice flavoring and ice cream, and then they top it off with cream - delicious!

Local Boys West is just a cool place to go for shave ice. This place had unbelievably great service to go along with the great shave ice. They offered many flavors to choose from and had some great suggestions for us to choose from. The "Local Girl" was great with a touch of Li Hing Mui powder on top.

this local-styled joint was recommended to our group by a previous Hawai'i resident. I recommend the bigger size - prices are reasonable and servings are generous. we got mango ice cream under the shaved ice for an extra fruity treat, however one cannot go wrong with vanilla. the store is mixed in with lots of hyper-touristy shops. it's almost missable...

It was really good. But there is just something about the flavors at uulanis that tops the charts. This place is goos, people are nice and if your on the end of front street I would recommend it.

But not as good as ululani's. Super friendly though and great vibes. Even gave us a coupon for their other location. Still a really good shaved ice.

It was flavorful, affordable, and the service was fast and helpful. They have a huge variety of flavors to choose from. I recommend having it on the Macadamia Nut Ice Cream. It is a great treat to have on a hot day.

Ulalani's whatever its called, the famous place. This is better shave ice more authentic, better tasting, no line and just down the street. Get the cream topping thing on it, that makes it taste way better. Shave ice is just alright for me -- as Randy Jackson would say -- but this is the best of it.

The scoop of locally made ice cream at the bottom, the quality syrups, the cream on top. So refreshing!
