An uber driver in Waikiki had recommended Romy's to my husband and so when we left Waikiki and had a rental car, we went there instead of the competitors. What a mistake! My husband had the garlic shrimp (peel them yourself - gross) and I...More

Garlic grilled shrimp & steamed shrimp was amazing. Worth the wait. (decent organized queue tracking). Ordering staff was polite and professional. Area is near Northshore and after the famous Waimea beach cliff(bay) Highly recommended even though there are many other competitors around.

Our first time here. We tried 3 "shrimp shacks" already. So far it ranks 2nd. We ordered Butter garlic scampi and sweet/spicy shrimp. It was ok. Too much garlic. The garlic tasted a little burnt/bitter. Loved the shoyu dipping sauce. I still prefer the one's...More

Staff is friendly, if you want their garlic shrimp, minimum 45min to an hour wait. I'll echo a previous review... Call in your order on your way there. We had their steamed prawns. If you don't want the wait, steamed shrimp or prawns come with...More

When we got there and tried to order, we were told that only numbers 4 and 5 could be ready within 15-20 mins. All other numbers would be an hour wait. They also had fish on the menu, but we were told they don't have...More

First of all... the thing you need to know is you CAN CALL IN ADVANCE! Wish I knew that before standing in the long line. And it is deceptive, when someone gets to the window to order, suddenly 4 to 20 people join them and...More
