Excellent!!!!!!!

Poke to perfection. So many varieties. Very high grade of fish used. Like candy. And lots of other traditional combo meals and sides, as well.

Best poke on the island...a little hard to find (on the right if your headed south on hwy 11), but so worth it...go early enough to get a good selection! Delicious!

I had poke for the first time while here on the big island. Absolutely amazing! Left me craving for more. We went back two days back to back. Awesome!

We visited two Da Poke shack locations (Kailua-Kona and Captain Cook), and both were comparable to one another. While they look like the proverbial hole-in-the-wall, Da Poke Shacks have a nice selection of different pokes (at least five or six) and a good selection of sides. The fish is extremely fresh! One visit we had to wait a few minutes... More

Da Poke Shack is a slice of heaven. After traveling nearly twenty-four hours straight (what with layovers and connecting flights), this was our first, and utterly satisfying stop en route to our resort. Although the actual restaurant (cafe? deli?) is tiny, seriously tiny. Basically, you walk in, admire the case of amazingly fresh poke (of what seem to be a... More

Wish we had stopped here sooner. Liked it so much at lunch that we went back in and ordered food to-go to eat for dinner later that night. I love it when a restaurant focuses on one thing and does it well. They do poke well. Oh I wish we had found them on day 1!!!
