Love this place! Get any flavor of shaved ice with ice cream on the bottom. Save your receipt as it includes a discount off your next visit.

Highly recommended! I wish I went there more than once and am dreaming about that delicious shaved ice with ice cream. Try the tigers blood! (It's strawberry and coconut)

Great flavors and good service. These guys have a store in Kihei too. Watermelon and lemon lime cool you off in the hot Maui sun. Go get some local boys ice dude!

Local Boys was our all time favorite and we tried 2 other shaved ice places. Their ice cream is the best part!!

Huge servings, free toppings, delicious. This store is not out to get your tourist money, they want you to enjoy your treat. My son ordered a big baby cup and it was huge. I was curious about the mochi and the server (Rebecca) gave me a generous portion of the delicious topping to taste. She was genuinely friendly and nice.... More

Wow! Loved the very soft ice the worker made. She was very friendly and great at what she does. I like their shaved ice the best.

Local Boys is located a block away from the Courthouse and Banyan tree square on Front Street. Happy employees with probably 41 flavors to enhance their shave ice and about 12 flavors of ice cream that form the base. They really load on the ice and flavorings. Great treat for $3 for small, $5.50 large and $10 for the "back... More

First time trying shaved ice in Maui. They put ice cream in the base of the cup and then shaved ice on top. Very refreshing. Young lady serving was very pleasant. Lots of flavors to choose from.

Ice Cream and shaved ice, who knew????!!!!! This was a hit, all 3 times in our 9 day stay. Sharks Blood was the favorite name for my son-pretty catchy names for the combo flavors, but I stuck with a rootbeer and vanilla ice cream. 90 degrees and great every time.

Can't say we're experts - this was our first shave ice experience. (we previously turned our noses up thinking it was like snow cones - a dirty word we now know!) But I do suspect this place is one of the best! Oh it was awesome, a little cup of heavenly refreshment - we found we needed at least one... More

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.
