We thought our shrimp scampi was very average and had way too much garlic. We also thought that for the amount of food received that it was over priced. Just average.

Did not read trip advisor before going there. Now that I have read the review I would say the comments are accurate. Long wait, Shrimp/Prawns very fresh. Cleanness of restrooms, tables etc left a lot to be desired. Such a great story being the first...More

I came here for the famous garlic and butter shrimp and was disappointed. The shrimps were either over cooked or from a frozen bag - they were chewy and flowery. The garlic and butter flavoring is removed when you have peeled the shell. It would...More

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.
