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

Any where we visit we try to stay away from the touristy areas for food and find the off the beaten path places that the locals go, and from the recommendation of the person that we were renting a beach house from this was the shrimp place to eat. 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

On our trip to Oahu last month, we went to Romy's for lunch. We were on a private tour of the island and our tour guide suggested that if we liked shrimp and fish and wanted to experience the best local place to have lunch we needed to go to Romy's......he certainly did not lead us astray! He phoned in... More
