I got the coconut shrimp this time, while my wife got the batter fried shrimp. Both are very tasty fresh jumbo shrimp. The coconut shrimp is among the very best I've ever had. The batter fried are more a tempura batter than the North Carolina style I love at home. So many choices remain there for tomorrow's lunch. The menu... More

After driving down from Waimea canyon stopped in the town for lunch. Lots of different choices. Ate at the shrimp station. Many varieties of dishes to choose just one was tough. Inexpensive.

I watched the local channel at the resort and was wondering about this restaurant when they showed a great mix of locals and tourists enjoying this place I was hooked. Somehow by the time we got to the shrimp station it was lunch time. My wife and I enjoyed our meals as though we were the last. Wonderful and most... More

Like many Kauai restaurants, outdoor eating comes with copious chickens. They are under the table, in the trash can and if you get up and leave your food unattended, in your lunch. It would be a New York City Food Inspector's nightmare but it works. You order at a window and most of the dishes are shrimp platters for about... More

We stopped at the Shrimp Station in the evening, so the selection was limited. We had Garlic Shrimp, which was excellent. The seating is outdoors; however, as it doesn’t rain much in Waimea, this should not be a problem.

Great coconut shrimp among other shrimp dishes. Not much to look at but food makes up for it. Can get very busy. We found mid afternoon busiest. Single bathroom for public.

We stopped on the way back from Waimea Canyon. Overall, it was disappointing. We ordered the Coconut Shrimp and the Sweet Chili Garlic Shrimp. Each was $12.99. They were out of fries, so they substituted tortilla chips. No cocktail sauce for the Coconut Shrimp. The ketchup bottles were so dirty we didn't want to use them. The Sweet Chili Garlic... More

We stopped on our way from the Waimea Canyon. Shared a lunch of the coconut shrimp which came with a generous amount of French fries. Sat outside where seating is adjacent to the highway. Shrimp was very good and tasty.
