We enjoyed visiting for the shave ice. They had an astonishing number of flavors, and the woman behind the counter was very nice and helpful.

My daughter passed many Hawaiian Shave Ice locations before she stopped in here. The woman behind the counter was very nice. The shave ice was awesome with your choice of ice cream in the bottom. Very generous serving. We loved it.

While Ululani's is the standard of shaved ice on the island, the fact that Local Boys is cheaper and includes all the "add in's" for free, makes it on par with the shaved ice giant. Local Boys has many flavors and really cheerful staff, who are happy to talk about their favorites and give you plenty of time to make... More

We stumbled on Local Boys when we were in Lahaina in 2014, and what an awesome find! We made a few visits for shave ice on that trip. We're back again, we've been here 4 days and been there twice. Such an awesome treat, and so many different flavours! Be warned though, there is often a line up but it's... More

Scoop of ice cream covered in shave ice with sugar syrup poured on and cream on the top. What's not to like? Lots of flavors, line moves fast, delicious!

The shave ice from here is AMAZING!! We had to go back multiple times it was that good. The lady working there is super friendly and inviting as well. I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone. 👍

One of my favorite places on a hot day! Yellow snow is my favorite flavor and you gotta put it over the ice cream! A don't miss with the kids and they take charge cards now too. They also have cold water to buy for a couple of bucks if you are just thirsty for water....

While in Maui we decided to try different shaved ice shops. Hands down our favorite was Local Boys Shaved Ice. For a flat $5.50 they give you multiple flavors with ice cream on the bottom and cream on the top. Others charge you for add ons. And you can walk over to Banyan Park on Front street and enjoy eating... 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.
