The taste of the food was ok. I feel it was a bit over priced. I didn't like that I had to peel your own shrimp. Then the gentleman behind the counter was sweating profusely which totally grossed me out.

We stopped here for lunch during our round island trip, we had a small wait but it was most definitely worth it. The shrimp was delicious and not expensive, value for money for a roadside stall

It is rather neat to see all of the shrimp and prawn pens at the tip of Oahu. I wanted to try the prawns so stopped at Romy's. I ordered the Garlic Prawns. I had to pay more for substituting brown rice over the white, which I did. The plate which only consisted of 4 prawns and a mound of... More

The food hear was great, the eating area was outside on... More

If you go to the North Shore of Oahu, you have to try a shrimp stand! We got the garlic shrimp, fried shrimp, and steamed shrimp and took it back to the house to eat. Very tasty, as were the sauces. Shrimp are farmed in an area between their location and the shore, so they are very fresh. A few... More

We waited 1hr to the window and then another hour for the order to be ready. Granted we were there on a Sunday afternoon. We've always been a fan of Giovanni's shrimps just 10m down the road but decided to give Romy's a try as it seemed more popular. After this, we going back to Giovanni's for all our shrimp... More

Stopped by during a drive along Oahu's east and north shores. There are lots of shrimp places to choose from in the northeast and Romy's is a great pick. The food was delicious and there was not a long wait but we arrived on a non peak time and day. The food was fresh and tasteful but the facilities could... More
