Great food at reasonable price. Only thing we wised up and got take-out so we could go to our apartment to enjoy it with a beer.

I've had better shrimp tacos here in Ottawa but these were decent. They tasted very fishy for some reason. Could have been just my perception but I didn't feel that the shrimp was fresh as it could have been. It's a good place to stop though if you're hungry. Near Waimea canyon and after driving up there and hiking you'll... More

Road side stand in small Hawaiian town. Rustic but coconut shrimp were the best I ever had bar none. So good we went to their other location. At 13.99 best bargain on Kauai.

Oh man the garlic shrimp is soooo good. Buttery garlicy goodness on a plate. Definitely one of the best things we ate while in Kauai. The coconut shrimp was fine and tasty but the garlic was definitely the standout. Ok priced at 12 bucks a plate.

There are basically two choices of shrimp. One is shrimp in the shell with a variety of sauces from mild to spicier. Rice on the side. Overall, this was the most flavorful dish. Yes, you have to peel the shrimp and eat with your hands, but there are plenty of napkins and a sink to rinse off. The other choice... More

We have visited this location to have shrimp several years ago when we came to Kauai with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandsons. The stop was lots of fun and down right finger licking good. You had too, I don't know what kind of utensil I would use on shrimp. Station comes from the fact that this used to be... More

This place had the best tasting coconut shrimp I have ever had. The shrimp were very large, tender and numerous. We got here just before noon and beat the rush. My husband had the chili shrimp, which he also liked. The service was fast although the woman at the counter seemed abrupt with customers. The seating is outdoors at picnic... More

Not a place to judge by appearances but the food was absolutely delicious and it was just a lovely experiences to sit and share a plate of prawns (shrimp) and lick your fingers clean afterwards. Well worth the stop on the way to or from Waimea Canyon -don't let the ordinary look of the place fool you -great food comes... More

Remembering the recommendations of fellow travelers and verifying the info on TripAdvisor, we stopped here on the way to the Grand Canyon of Hawaii. It was a good choice and we weren't disappointed. My wife & I each ordered the shrimp burrito which was stuffed with shrimp amid a tasty mix of salsa, cheese and lettuce. It was delicious. Our... More

On first view looks unappealing, but looks can be deceiving. Had the garlic shrimp meal in a plastic container with potatoes. Messy to peel shrimps but yummy. Quite inexpensive as well. I guess we had hands before we had cutlery. Not fine dining but fine eating!
