This lady deserves a five start ranking on TA! Really well prepared shrimps and excellent service. Through TA we visited the Shrimp Shack and we are a fan for live!

We had an awesome time eating the garlic peel and eat shrimp while watching the waves come in at Shrimp Shack. It is a great coast line drive to get there as well!

Passed by this little gem on the way to horseback riding. I had the Spicy Garlic Shrimp, the hottest version. It was great! No worries about it being too hot.

We were saving our shrimp for Giovannis, and ordered the mussells, wow were they good! Served on a cookie sheet with butter and garlic. Loved them.

I had the fish and chips, although it was called something else, my wife had coconut shrimp and son had popcorn shrimp. Good food, not great. Have to sit in front of the small grocery store on picnic tables. That's OK, except for the flies, cause you can grab a beer at the store. I was expecting more based on... More

Got the garlic shrimp, and it was really average. Massive amount if chopped garlic everywhere and butter. Was hard to taste the shrimp with all the butter. Nice little place and good view, but there are other better places to try along this North Shore road.

We stopped here while on a Jeep tour with Hawaii Jeep Tours (Wayde's World: Poor Man's Guide to Hawaii). We tried the Spicy Garlic Shrimp and Coconut Shrimp Plates and were very pleased with both. I recommend the "medium" spicy for a good amount of heat without blowing your mouth off. We passed on the tropical float drinks they make,... More

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat. We saw the yellow food truck and stopped. I had the spicy garlic shrimp and it was fantastic. Although I may be tasting it all day. Since it is a food truck, there are no tables but you can sit in front of the convenience store and look at the great ocean... More

If you're on the Kamehameha Hwy around lunch time, it's a great place to stop and eat. It's a food truck so you have to eat outside in some plastic chairs in front of the convenience store where they're parked, but just on the other side of the road is the beautiful blue pacific ocean. It's mostly shrimp, but they... More
