“Pleasantly very surprised-yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Garlic scampi shrimp was amazing! A family of three all enjoyed everything we tried. Great value, quality food, small adorable place. Bring breath mints after the garlic dish...but oh so worth it!

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Savage Shrimp is now located in the Kukuila shopping center in Poipu. GREAT for lunch or a casual dinner. Fresh and tasty, local and fun!

We first went to Savage Shrimp when it was a food truck in Lawai. We've been looking for it ever since..... and we were delighted to find it again. Busy and popular, quick, laid back, sensational flavors and large portions.

Aloha!

“More "meh" Food in Kauai”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We only ate in places that had tons of "great" reviews, and we were consistently disappointed. This place was no different. I agree with another reviewer that the fried shrimp was not good - greasy and boring. The garlic shrimp was okay, but not as good as any we ate on the North Shore of Oahu. No one in our party raved about the food, and we're foodies, so lack of conversation about the food = the food wasn't worth talking about. I wrote about many other things we did in Kauai on my blog. Message me if you are interested in the link.
