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.

Great Shaved Ice - Flavors, Ice Cream, Toppings, Price, and Views

Never thought I would have spent time trying out different shaved ice places, but we did. The blue ribbon goes to Local Boys in Lahaina. They had tons of flavors to chose from; excellent ice cream choices and good scoops; and 4-5 toppings. Because one price covers it all, it's less than the... read more

Got the Local Girl combo and was in heaven, enjoying my ice under the giant banyan tree in the shade. First time trying shave ice with ice cream on the bottom - never looking back from that brilliant idea! Will return with my family. Maybe later today for round 2. They don't have to know it's not my first. ;-)

We went to Local Boys several times during our vacation, since our kids believed this to be the best ever. Lots of flavors to choose from and the added option of ice cream on the bottom is included. Lines can get long and one time we were there they seemed understaffed. Great location to cool off.

There are SO many choices, and you're allowed up to 3 flavors per, plus ice cream on the bottom for no extra charge (I passed, but one of my kids did it). They do have some staffing issues to resolve -- we were there on a Friday and a Sunday, and both days there was only one (very patient, sweet,... More

We love this place. Lots of flavors, no upcharge for ice cream on the bottom, good price, shady outside if there's a line out the door but usually not too bad a line and can wait turn inside. Homey wooden picnic benches in small shop where you can read letters from school children posted on wall thanking Local Boys for... More

Best shaved ice on Maui. We frequented this place recently as the shaved ice was perfect for a cool down on a hot day. You have to have the cream on top and the scoop of ice cream under the shaved ice. Perfect combination. It can get quite busy but it is worth the wait. I feel for the young... More

Great shave ice. Great value. The adults were eating the small cups because they were ginormous. Great flavors. Great everything. Wished we were there longer for more.
