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 day, but I think I would have preferred an ice cream. It took us probably... More

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.

My go-to place for shave ice in Lahaina, almost directly across Front St. from the Banyan Tree. Generous amount of ice cream in the bottom. There are other shave ice locations along Front Street - this is my favourite.

If you haven't had an authentic Hawaiian shaved ice, this is your place. Get it loaded, ice cream on the bottom, cream on the top. Service was slow due to the lack of integrity with the current employees, however, the gal helping was kind, patient and was not overwhelmed by the large line. She even gave us a $1 off... More

Creative, funky shaved ice stand very welcome on a warm, sunny day. The interior has a fun, cheeky vibe. Margarita shaved ice a real treat, very refreshing. Lots of luscious looking ice cream with toppings available. Wish I had ordered a larger cup!

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.
