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 brilliant stop for shaved ice! Easy to find - it's almost opposite Banyan Tree Park. There are so many combinations to choose from, you may have to visit more than once. Parking is easy to find in the nearby carpark on the corner of Front St and Prison St.

I had seen there ad on tv so I decided to try it. Selection was average. There waffle cone machine was broken that day. Not overly excited by the place so next time if it hasn't improved I will probably give it a miss

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

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.
