We ducked out from Turtle bay, 6min east down the highway to Romy's. Waited the obligatory 30min on a very windy day - the tarp covering the red benches sounded like it was going to snap off with the next big gust. We shared the garlic butter shrimps with rice (~$14) and had some buttered corn ($2 each). The shrimp... More

We didn't know what to expect, but glad that we waited 45 minutes - the WAIT was worth it. Fast paced take out. Lots of shaded, picnic tables. The special fresh pineapple is in a spicy sauce was very different and I was not a fan of it, but I say "try it" you might think that it was the... More

Loved their garlic butter shrimps! Ohh!! Want it again! Worth the wait... o in a 90F heat too. We were on the way to the North Shore beach and stopped at this shrimp food truck. There are a few food trucks along the way, but this is the BEST one!!! Look for Romy's Shrimps and Prawns. Long line, come early...... More

I have never had shrimp like this, they were AMAZING!!!!!! It was a fun atmosphere, Picnic tables outside to eat at. We did wait for an hour for our food but I would have waited all day for their food. What better place to wait than outside in Hawaii.

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
