Best Shaved Ice... my grandchildren's favorite spot on Maui! Be sure and order the ice cream on the bottom... great combo!

“Repeat Customer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Without joining the debate on where the best Shave Ice served I highly recommend Local Boy Snack Shop. Staff are friendly and accomodating. Great assortment of flavors. Servings are about the same size and price as other vendors however many of the "extras" which other vendors charge for are free here including ice cream at the bottom of your cup and Kaui cream drizzled over the top. Can't wait to get back!

“The best shave ice I had in Maui.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Delicious and more affordable than others. Mango ice cream was awesome and service was friendly. Didn't have to try another place after going here! You also get a buy one get one free at their other location if you present your receipt!

“Mucho Grande Shave Ice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

Best shave ice I have ever had and my kids would attest to this as well.

A trip to Local Boys shave ice was a daily event for the week we were on Maui. We usually have a daily ice cream on such a trip but this shave ice won the day.

Some tips

* Baby size is more than enough IMHO
* Get ice cream on the bottom
* Get maui cream on top
* B sure to save your receipt so you can get one free next time
* It can sometimes be CRAZY busy so be flexible about your timing
