The shrimp was delicious. Had the spicy shrimp wife had shrimp scampi served with white rice. You have to. Peel the shrimp. Went on a Tuesday afternoon. Waited on line about 40 minutes to order. Another 40 minutes for food. Definitely not a fast food place. It was about 4 pm when we left. No line then so may want... More

As we circled Oahu, our private guide suggested that we stop for a GARLIC Shrimp plate. This shrimp farm has quiet a history and it was fun to eat outside on the picnic tables. Not fancy, but very tasty and generous. I can still taste the garlic !!

The shrimp was overcooked. Taste was good, but the quality of the food was below average. Go somewhere else for shrimp. I would not come back. Long wait times as well, not worth it.

Have not been here since 2015, it's the same, the garlic shrimp are outstanding! My Wife and I have been coming here since 2004 and they are growing, we are happy to see them doing so good! It is worth the drive from Waikiki, we will be back one more time before we end our vacation. This place should not... More

Visited on a rainy afternoon. There were about 10 people seated in the eating area and two couples ordered in front of us. The wait for most foods (1-3) was predicted to be an hour and fifteen to an hour and thirty minutes, but we could have boiled shrimp with dipping sauce in less than fifteen minutes, so we went...

In the interests of fairness, I'm going to start out by saying that we showed up at this shrimp truck 15 minutes before their 6 pm closing time on a Sunday. The girls taking the orders were surly and unfriendly. We ordered the fried shrimp (shelled) and our friends ordered the spicy shrimp (not shelled). The shrimp (maybe a dozen?)... More

Fresh and flavorful! We stopped here after a long drive around the North Shore. The menu is online, so I'd recommend checking that out so you don't waste time in line ordering and asking a ton of questions. The food is made fresh to order, so it takes time...when you order they'll let you know about how long. Its worth... More

Got here for around 2pm on a Saturday and the lunch lineup was still going strong. Waited in line for 15 mins and another 45 mins for food. It was well worth the wait. Great garlic flavour and just the right amount of butter with shrimp that's actually cooked well. I also like how their menu has tiered pricing for... More

Cash only (not cheap), we waited 45 min for our shrimp but killed time walking through the shrimp farm and then working on an order of edamame. The shrimp was really fresh, even my wife who isn't a fan of shrimp enjoyed them, and the kids had the fried shrimp while we had the butter and spicy shrimp (medium isn't... More
