Join the locals for shrimp and prawns on the North Shore at the roadside location of Romy's! The seafood comes in live through the back door, is cooked to order and served out of the order window only 12 feet away with steamers and woks in between. The aroma of garlic and butter of the shrimp scampi is amazing!
Eat under large awnings on bright red picnic tables or take your order to go. Your patience to wait for good food, not fast food will be rewarded!

I firstly visited Hawaii and introduced by a friend of mine to this TASTY Shrimp place in 2011. As long as I remember the shrimp was REAL Fresh back in the day. The second time I came here was last November, the tastes of the 2 dishes we ordered "BUTTER GARLIC SHRIMP & Sweet & Spicy Shrimp" were very disappointing!

We had lunch at Romy's and the garlic shrimp was as good as everyone says. The only problem was the wait. It took over an hour between waiting in line to place the order and then getting your food.

This was a recommended place to go to get shrimp & it did not disappoint. I've read the other reviews & I'm not sure what they are talking about. You do have to pay cash (most of the food venues/trucks you have to), it isn't super fast but we only waited for about 15-20 min for the 4 meals we ordered. We ordered 3 garlic shrimp & 1 spicy & they were all hot, yummy, easy to peel & very tasty. The sauces were very good. Yes, they are whole shrimp so disassembly is required & yes it is messy, but they do provide outdoor sinks to wash up at when you are done. It is outdoor order & eating so if it's not a nice day you might want to pick up your order & take to an indoor place to eat. Overall we were very happy & would have eaten there again if we would have had time.

Romy's is asvertised as the place to go on Oahu's North Shore for garlic shrimp. This is what we found.
The service was very slow. We paid twice the price for half the food compared to other nearby places. The shrimp and prawns had not been deveined before they were cooked. The food generally was very disappointing. We'll not return to Romy's.
