I was having a craving for a shave ice one evening and did a search online for the closest ones in Lahaina, and Local Boys Shave Ice came up. I am very glad that I stopped in here. There are so many flavors to choose from that everyone would be happy! They have different sizes; small, medium and large. And... More

This was the best place to get an adult shaved ice. My daughter had the piñata cola ta and I had the mango margarita it was the best drink I had on the islands. The girl behind the counter was so good and we got a small one each and price was great as it was happy hour time and... More

Lots of flavors with ice cream/mochi/cream toppings included. Got dragon's blood, coconut, guava with lychee ice cream. Good prices. Coarser texture of ice than ululani's but also good nonetheless. Gotta check it out and a nice convenient location to all the Lahaina shops and sights.

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

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.
