“The best shave ice in Maui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Our family is addicted to shave ice and very particular. You might call us shave ice snobs. We've eaten it all around the Islands for years and Breakwall is the only shave ice spot that we have gone every single day and some days twice.

It is the best we've ever had.

“Horrible Experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

This place was gross! Smells like old fish when you walk in. The employee who served us looked like he didnt shower for days. We asked for a strawberry flavor for our shave ice, but got banana flavor instead. Obviously they don't know what they're doing here. The place is dirty and needs to be swept, dirty tables and a sticky counter to rest your arm on when you pay their outrages price....

My advice... Dont stop here!

Aloha Jack,

Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate you taking the time to inform us of your experience. Our deepest apologies for your experience at your shop. Not sure how we could mix up strawberry and banana but thats a pretty big error on our end. Not sure if you are still on Maui but I would like to invite back to our establishment and show you the service that we believe all our guests experience. My name is Javier and I am the owner, here is my direct email, info@breakwallmaui.com. Again thank you for posting so we can improve in the areas that you felt were lacking.

Warmest Mahalo,

Javier

“Great shave ice!”

We loved the shave ice and my wife loved that they had the beans. Eating at the surfboard table just seemed right!

“LOVE IT!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

We fell in love with Hawaiian shaved ice. We had great service and they offered many flavors, the great thing was you could pick several on the same "cone"
