Sister and I figured we try da poke shack once again only because Umekes was closed...bad idea. Poke was average. Not like how it use to be a few years back. Maybe different owner?? If you want legit poke or a poke bowl, try UMEKES! Friendly service and FRESH fish/poke.

Returning to Kona for the second time, couldn't wait to hit da poke shack. Last visit was Jan 2011 and it was amazing. Returned Nov 2014 and still great. Great quick lunch spot or to go. It's hard to stray from one of the ahi poke selections, with seaweed, and rice. But the tako is also excellent. Worth at least... More

We are back on the island and couldn't wait to get to da poke shack. We got there late so slim pickings but still very good. Get there early!

Da Poke Shack was on site and was claimed to be the best Poke on the island so we had to try a little of everything. Surprisingly, (I'm not a fish person) I liked everything that we tried. (entire bottom shelf) They do sell out so go earlier in the day if there is something specific you want.

It was my first time having poke and I loved it. I had spicy ahi with spicy crab side. I can't wait to try the plate lunch.

We enjoyed a good lunch and took some extras home to the condo for lunch and dinner later. Very popular place with a line up. Picnic tables in the parking lot but you can walk down a bit further to eat at the beach.

This was in the condo we rented, just downstairs. It made for a great snack before a late supper, we would just buy the $22 poke plate and share it among 4 of us. So good, and a variety of styles/sides every day. Go early, the variety gets tapped out near the end of the day!

An unusual and hard to find place but once you are there,the food is both excellent & unusual. To make it even better, the service is exceptionally friendly and helpful. They offer tastes of anything you want. No seating inside, but there is some picnic table seating outside, If we lived here,we would be regular customers. Prices are very reasonable,... More
