We tried other shaved ice options on the island, but this beat them all! Excellent flavor and the ice just melts in your mouth! Thank you!

We went to Local Boy twice during our week on Maui and loved everything about it. The shave ice is insanely good, and the free scoop of ice cream underneath is a great addition (my favorite was the Snow White with vanilla mac nut ice cream). The ladies who run the shop are friendly and fun, and being able to... More

We have been on Maui for two weeks and eaten shave ice at nearly every stand we passed. Local Boys in Kihei is absolutely the best! The ladies are so kind, chat with us and one even made herself a bowl and pulled up a chair. Our boys only want Local Boys now!

We tried several shave ices at a variety of shops on Maui, but Local Boys was by far the best. We visited the store on Front St. in Lahaina. The young woman behind the counter was super friendly, and helpful in explaining all the extensive flavors and options, despite the store being quite busy. The ice itself is finely shaved,... More

When you are in Hawaii you need to have shaved ice. This little place is close to many restaurants. The young lady working was super helpful. Check it out.

Localboys is a must when visiting maui, the shave ice is the softest , great tasting Flavors, and a wonderful staff. They also have some of the prettiest coconut girls working at both locations in Kihei and Lahaina ! Not to mention their bomb signature sweet cream ! 😍 Definitely check out this local stand!
