Yummy!!!!

Very tasty! Shrimp was big too. I had the garlic plate. Prices are 10-25$. Quick service. They do take credit cards which is convenient. If you're in the area i definitely recommend a stop!

Fresh and tasty seafood serving with very special Hawaiian hospitality. Lot of shaks along the road but this one is simply the best.

Heading towards the North Shore be sure to stop at the little yellow food truck for some super coconut shrimp! Doesn't get much better than this!

My wife and I were driving around Oahu on the previous day and had seen the Shrimp Shack alongside the road as we returned to Waikiki. Since we were driving back up that way the next day to attend the Polynesian Cultural Center, we decided to stop and eat lunch there. They have a decent selection to choose from -... More

Stopped here on the way to Polynesian Cultural Center and should have ended the day here (PCC was not all that). We ate garlic shrimp and popcorn shrimp and crab legs and mochi in the rain and it was SOOOO good. Nice view of the beach across the street. Cute tables. Convenience store for snacks and dessert. My only basis... More

Sorta' bizarre to pull over on the side of the road for a meal, but when in Rome! The food was good, though maybe a little expensive for what you got. Kids loved the popcorn shrimp and the coconut was some of the best we've had. The tropical juice float was ok, nothing spectacular and probably not worth the price.

The spicy garlic shrimps are finder licking good! Copious amount of garlic and tantalising sauce. Follow the instruction on the table top! Well worth a stop & will definitely be back and/or recommend. The strawberry & guava float was refreshing & delish.

We ordered takeout for an easy evening meal with family. The spicy shrimp was good, but nothing special. However, the coconut shrimp and dipping sauce was excellent. The shrimp was lightly fried. The sauce was a bit like maple syrup and honey. Very tasty! The food was served up quickly and wrapped well to keep it warm for the short... More
