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

Best syrup choices. Flavors are great tasting. Went here 5 times for shaved ice during our visit. A must stop for shaved ice in Maui.

I was out to get some shave ice for my family on our recent vacation. We were planning on going to a different location but couldn't find parking near it. We saw the Local Boys location nearby a large public parking lot off of front st. Because my youngest son was grumpy and didn't want to walk we chose Local... More

Local Boys West was a god send after an especially hot walk around Front Street in Lahaina. I loved watching a solid block of ice get turned into a delicious dessert. Just as good as Ululani's w/o the dramatic line (though line increased somewhat after we got there, so maybe we were lucky). Grab a shave ice with Roselani ice... More

The store was severely understaffed when we went with only one person working (but two employees there). We waited an hour to get shave ice, and only stayed because we know it is good, and we were committed. We also kept hoping the other person would jump in and get line to move faster at some point, but that didn't... More

Long lines sometimes indicate good food. In the case of Local Boys West, it is true. The lines were long but they moved pretty quickly. The service was great. Very friendly staff. There were so many flavors it was hard to choose. Good shave ice. You can't go wrong if you visit here.

We've tried ALL da shave ices! Or so we thought. This place had flavors we never even DREAMED of putting onto a shave ice. And they give you a scoop of ice cream FREE on the bottom of your shave ice if you want. And you got a free topping (there are usually a couple listed on a white board,... More

Awesome shave ice and well worth the wait. Do not say snow cone or you could be kicked out of the place....not by the establishment...by the others waiting in line. Shave ice here is an art form.

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.
