We were recommended to go here for shave ice and it was wonderful!!!! To be clear, you are not going here for the decor...it's rather rustic, but don't let that deter you! The shave ice was so delicious and the girl working there was great. We clearly needed an education on all things "shave ice" and she was happy to... More

Li Hing Mui, Pineapple, and Mango with Mac Nut Ice Cream in the bottom is the way to go here! More than 57 flavors to choose from to top your shaved Ice! I live the "Local Flavor" here and I love supporting them when it comes to shaved Ice in Lahaina!!!

Local Boys is located near the large banyan tree in Lahaina. It's a great place to grab some shave ice. They have a large assortment of flavors and several sizes. The service was quick and the staff very friendly. We always stop here when in Lahaina.

Sooooo good. I liked this shaved ice more than Ulalanis. There are 2 locations, Lahaina and Kihei. The Lahaina one is better. They have more flavors and the legendary Papa size for $6.50. Lahaina location has over 57 flavors and no extra charge for ice cream and other toppings. Mmm im gonna miss this!!!

We first discovered this little piece of heaven 4 years ago vacationing here from Chicago. We had to wait 4 years to have it again and it did not disappoint. Best Hawaiian Ice in Maui!

I will stop here for shave ice at every opportunity. The shave ice is so light and fluffy, so many flavors are available, they put ice cream under the shave ice (many flavors available), and lots of traditional toppings are available (that I had never heard of). Really super yummy and refreshing. Wish they were next door to my home!

Read about this place and had great reviews, but the shave ice was good, but not great. They were very disorganized and service was very slow.

If you are on Maui you have to stop here. Make sure you get the ice cream and cream with the shaved ice... Service was the best and so was the shaved ice. WOW...
