While we know many people who choose the other famous Maui Shave Ice place, every time we visit Maui we make it a point to visit both the Kihei location as well as Local Boys West. While I wish there was a little more seating...More

We ate here 4 times during our stay. Best shave ice! We tried it with ice cream on bottom and that was SO good. The ice was light and the syrups not too sweet. The staff are adorable and so friendly. They even recognized us!...More

They have the most flavors and free toppings. The ice is so light and refreshing and the syrup is just right! My favorite so far. I had to have the passion fruit one (lillikoi?). And tried the Kauai Cream topping, a special recipe of theirs.

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...More

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...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 -...More

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. Yes it was nice to have after being on the water all...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.
