Great food - but not particularly cheap. We had portions of the spicy garlic and coconut shrimp and both were tasty, fresh and generous portions, although the spicy shrimp wasn't very spicy at all. Service was prompt and friendly. There are some benches to sit at outside the store but not the greatest atmosphere (literally) because of the fumes from... More

Not sure why the ratings on this establishment are so high. Or the high marks given by the Travel Channel. I was not impressed. Wife and I ordered the fried fish strips. Meal came with 2 pieces of fish on bed of rice. Our first order came out and as I began to eat I noticed that the inner part... More

We hired a car for the day and headed to the North Shore. On the way we stumbled across the Shrimp Shack. At first we were only going to grab a drink but after meeting the friendly team we jumped on in an ordered a variety of their shrimp dishes. WOW... it was unbelievable. Yum Yum.

Stopped here before going to Kualoa Ranch for a tour. Didn't want to drive all the way up to Kahuku for Giovanni's or Romy's. There was no wait on a weekday around lunchtime, which was perfect. The garlic shrimp was fresh and tasty with the peel on...I tend to eat the peel along with the shrimp so it doesn't bother... More

We stopped here because it was near noon and we saw a vapid surfboard sign near the road six miles before the location of this food truck (traveling counter-clockwise around the O'ahu coast). They offer a variety of deep fried seafood as well as chili and other tasty sides. Fish is fresh, as far as I could tell through the... More

Fresh and delicious - we had the garlic shrimp, spicy shrimp and mussels - just heaven in each bite! Yes, you sit at clean tables in front of a store which is near the road and it is windy being on the windward side of the island but hello, your view across the street is gorgeous. Head inside and use... More

When on the North Shore, if you want great Peel & Eat Shrimp, look no further than the Shrimp Shack! Everything is cooked fresh in the truck and eaten at tables in front of the market. Really great stuff!

Wife and I stopped here for lunch on our drive along North Shore. She had the garlic shrimp, I had the mahi mahi. Very good food, friendly service.
