We hired a car for the day and drove around the island and were told to stop off here. So glad we did. The food was fresh and great tasting. We had coconut shrimp and fish. Yum Definitely make a stop here well worth it

This is a cool place to stop for a plate of shrimps - it's full if character - both the place and the people that work there. The shrimps are fresh and absolutely delicious.

I Highly recommend the garlic shrimp. So delicious. You do have to remove the heads. So much fresh garlic you will not have any trouble with vampires. I also had the orange creamsicle ice cream float. YUM!!!

Stopped on a whim as we were driving past. A fun, food truck! Had the popcorn shrimp, garlic shrimp and clam strips. It was served fast with friendly service. The food was hot and delicious!

This is exactly what you would expect- a big plate of delicious shrimp. The person working it was SO friendly! The shrimp was great- we had garlic shrimp and coconut shrimp. I think the coconut shrimp is way better. The garlic shrimp is good for sure but not as unique as the coconut.

Great food - but not particularly cheap. We had portions of the spicy garlic and coconut shrimp and both were tasty, fresh and generous portions, although the spicy shrimp wasn't very spicy at all. Service was prompt and friendly. There are some benches to sit at outside the store but not the greatest atmosphere (literally) because of the fumes from... More

Not sure why the ratings on this establishment are so high. Or the high marks given by the Travel Channel. I was not impressed. Wife and I ordered the fried fish strips. Meal came with 2 pieces of fish on bed of rice. Our first order came out and as I began to eat I noticed that the inner part... More

We hired a car for the day and headed to the North Shore. On the way we stumbled across the Shrimp Shack. At first we were only going to grab a drink but after meeting the friendly team we jumped on in an ordered a variety of their shrimp dishes. WOW... it was unbelievable. Yum Yum.

Stopped here before going to Kualoa Ranch for a tour. Didn't want to drive all the way up to Kahuku for Giovanni's or Romy's. There was no wait on a weekday around lunchtime, which was perfect. The garlic shrimp was fresh and tasty with the peel on...I tend to eat the peel along with the shrimp so it doesn't bother... More
