Great place to try a Hawaiian favorite to cool off from the heat. Try one flavor or many, with ice cream on the bottom or not all your choice. Keep your receipt for a 2nd visit discount. there is another Local boys that just opened in Kehei as well.

Local Boys West feels authentic and very aloha. Don't be in a hurry. Relax and enjoy the experience. The server isn't in a hurry and neither should you. The shave ice is excellent and heaping. You can enjoy it there or walk across the street half a block and eat it in the shade of the Banyan Tree.

Hot humid day in Lahaina and the line was out the door. I've had shaved ice on Oahu and wanted to see what Maui had to offer. Every customer seemed to be pretty patient and the servers were in no big hurry to speed up their pace. Very Hawaiian. This shaved ice was amazing. By far the best I've had,... More

I have never had shaved ice that was so delicate. It was so easy to eat and the flavors were wonderful. I had coconut, mango and pineapple but there were so many other fabulous options. I wish I'd discovered it earlier in the trip - I would have had one every day!

My review is based on my limited experience with shaved ice. I have had it twice (the last being from Local Boys) and don't see it as anything really to write home about.

So delicious!! You get a scoop of your choice of ice cream on the bottom, followed by a large mountain of shaved ice with three choices of topping flavors, and cream to top it off!!!

Had a good shave ice with ice cream in the bottom. We ate at their restaurant in Wailuku and looking forward to them adding food to their Lahaina location. Will go back on the next trip.

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.
