So yummy!

Loved Da Poke Shack! This place has delicious poke. We ordered the "plate" which was like a sampler variety of poke and rice and a side -- so much food, and the best deal in town! Definitely check out Da Poke Shack when you're on The Big Island!

On a recent vacation to the Big Island we ate poke at least 2 or 3 times a week (usually more) since we can't get it back home. We have been to the Big Island numerous times, and always make it a point to stop here. We have tried many other places in search of great poke; Umeke's, The Harbor... More

I would give this 5 stars - but its not a "5 star" type of place - its an awesome hole in the wall with EXCELLENT quality poke. Seriously - some of the best raw fish I've ever had - I wish I could go back right now! Grab your bowl of poke and a couple of sides -- and... More

So good, so fresh, but come early as they run out. Multiple kinds of poke, I love the spicy poke as well as the shoyu. You can get 2 scoops of poke with rice and a side dish. Heaven on a plate.

This place is awesome. Only a few picnic tables and the line was a bit long, but it was worth it. Very fresh and delicious! I got a bowl with 2 choices of fish; the wet hawaiian and the shack special. Prices are set by market price for Ahi, so it varies. I paid $12 for a bowl. This place... More

I had never had poke before, and was glad this was my first. I had grilled Calamari and two chopped Ahi choices, one hot (wasabi & ginger) and one sweet (Da Poke Shop special) served with rice seasoned with sesame and sea weed served in a cardboard clam shell. DELICIOUS! Da Poke Shop is a wonderful example of an unassuming... More

Best poke in the world. We saw the reviews on Trip Advisor, and decided to give it a try. It is a small, unassuming location with no seating inside. We pulled up around 12 pm and the line was out in the parking lot! We waited about 20 minutes to get served, and boy were we glad we did! We... More

If you are fan of poke or looking for the best place to have poke this is it. I have had poke from restaurants and supermarkets from the surrounding area but none of those have stood up against this place. The ingredients they use are not over powering and compliment the fish very well. The pieces feel like they melt... More
