Description: 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.

Shave ice is probably our favorite find on Hawaii. Local Boys is really good. They include ice cream and extras like mochi/gummy bears in the price, so you don’t feel like you’re being nickel and dimed. The shop in Lahaina, on Front St near Prison St, is clearly newer and bigger than the small stand in Kihei. Lahaina had about 10 flavors of ice cream, while Kihei just had vanilla and coconut. Totally worth a visit, don’t bother getting frozen yogurt or gelato or just plain ice cream in Hawaii, get a multi-flavored shave ice with ice cream on the bottom at Local Boys!

Under the banyan tree you can have your shave ice and take in the sites of Lahaina. The Shave Ice in the best on the island and it is consistently great.

No matter if you are in Kihei or Lahaina it is the best you will get and the place is clean and fun. Pretty girls work here, the owner has a good eye for pretty local girls and they are nice, accommodating and great workers as well as being really cute.

We had read all the hype about shave ice and found it hard to believe it wasn't just a glorified "snow cone" - it's not!! It's really good and we went to Local Boys at both Lahaina and Kihei. The staff suggestions made it easy to choose and it goes without saying that you have the cream on top and the ice-cream on the bottom. We were lucky that there was no queue on our first visit to Lahaina but noticed a short time later that it was out the door - join it regardless ..... it's worth it.

Discovered this on my LAST day, wouldn't you know...the BEST shave ice. Go "local" with ice cream on the bottom and a top of cream. You won't regret it. And like me, you'll be back...
