We rented a car for a drive around the island. This was one place we wanted to eat at. I was not disappointed. I got the coconut shrimp and a cold Primo from the store next door. The workers were very friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again.

After swimming in the ocean just try to find some local food for lunch , and found this small Non shrimp shack in the road side. The fish is the catch of the day, cooked by local sheft with local ingredients.

For me, in order to be four or five stars you have to excel in quality, quantity, price, location or service. Nothing special here. Good quantity on the mahi but each piece was the tail. Bad quantity on coconut shrimp. Average quality on both. Location is beside the road just like most food trucks. Price at $11 is maybe a... More

Not fancy, but good. Many seafood dishes served outside from a food truck. Great place to take a break form the touring of this area. Try the Surf and Surf platter.

The meal Irene recommended is the Surf & Surf which was peel and eat shrimp with Mai Mai on a bed of rice with sauteed onions. The fish was done in a very flavorful sauce and the shrimp were great except for not being de-veined. I noticed a Canadian flag, tattered but still flying so we chatted about that for... More

We had a nice stop at the Shrimp Shack- the peel and eat garlic shrimp and rice were excellent, the shrimp were meaty and juicy. We also had one of the juice floats which are highly recommended. There is a range of options there, from shrimp and rice to fish and chips and many juices and floats. The service is... More

We were hungry and travelling north west from Kailua when we chanced upon this shrimp truck. Unsure of what we would be expecting we we're all pleasantly delighted. Some of our group jumped into the sea across the road for a quick dip before lunch. We ordered garlic chilli shrimp and coconut shrimp among other dishes and it was totally... More

I find the Shrimp Shack 5 mins away from our resort, and spontaneous stopped after dropping off a friend at the airport. I ordered their Alaska King Crab meal with garlic prawn and rice 9:30am, took me 30 minutes to polish off that big meal for $31.95. I couldn't believe I got 3 half king crab, and really enjoyed the... More

We hired a car for the day and drove around the island and were told to stop off here. So glad we did. The food was fresh and great tasting. We had coconut shrimp and fish. Yum Definitely make a stop here well worth it

This is a cool place to stop for a plate of shrimps - it's full if character - both the place and the people that work there. The shrimps are fresh and absolutely delicious.
