Shrimps were huge. Go early. Line is a mile long. If you have never experienced eating jumping shrimp salad and this beautiful fish cooked in butter.. you have not lived! Forget using utensils. You have to experience eating the shrimp and fish with your hands!

After driving by many times on 3 different visits to Oahu, we finally had cash!!! in hand and made the stop. There have always been long lines and many tour buses as we have gone by so we were getting our taste buds ramped up for good shrimp. Hmmm. Then reality set in when we got the shrimp. Once the...

The wait was worth it. Tons of wonderful food and the shrimp is very fresh as the shrimp farm is very close by. Steady crowd the entire time we were there. More than enough room to sit and enjoy our food. The garlic shrimp sure does live up to its name. Be ready to make a mess,and then use the... More

Super yummy food. I had the honey ranch chicken...it was really good. I also had a slice of poly bread with butter. I loved it! The owners talked to us for quite a while. They were very nice.

We discovered romy's during our most recent stay on the north shore. The garlic butter shrimp is fabulous! They keep the head on their shrimp which keeps them so tender and flavorful. Be prepared to wait a while - perfection takes time - and don't worry about getting your fingers dirty. So yummy.

Well I was not sure what to expect but the line up was long (45 minutes for order time to be exact) and locals seemed to make this a tradition after church. I ordered their typical shrimp dish which came with 2 scoops of white rice - waiting time to receive the order in a styrofoam container and plastic cutlery... More

Hawaii time....everyone moves slow. That is to be expected. We didn't know what all the hype about for the Shrimp Trucks. So we stopped with 2 little hungry kids. We waited in line for about 15 min, then waited about 30 to get food. It is not cheap and they only take cash. We were short $3...so a really nice... More

Romys fixes your shrimp while you wait. Sometimes a wait but they are prepared fresh and they are delicious. We had a nice little rain shower while we waited under the canopy. We stayed on the north shore so the drive was short. Just a cool tradition to experience.
