My wife and I decided to grab some shrimp and head to the beach. She had read about this place before we got here and we weren't disappointed. The major downside to our visit was that they were out of the supplies needed to make the delicious garlic a fries that we had heard so much about.

You can choose the sauce, fried or grilled, spices, etc. They are all delicious and fresh. It is limited open air seating but a fun place for a quick meal.

Sorry to say, but the shrimp was over cooked, and I really don't get The point of cooking it in the shell, since all the flavor is on the shell which needs to be peeled. It was just ok---although the tiny amount of coleslaw was pretty good.

My husband and I have eaten here several times over the years. The food is delicious and cooked to order. It is a take out restaurant. There is VERY limited outdoor seating, and the bathroom was filthy! If you are staying nearby, you should probably take it home to eat.

Savage Shrimp is much better than Shrimp Station, which seemed to have received exceedingly high review rating for reasons that I do not understand. I went to Savage Shrimp and ordered the Fire Shrimp. It was delicious and the spicy taste was just about right to my liking. I would recommend anyone in the area to try it out but... More

We had eaten at Shrimp Station in Lihue and had such a good meal we thought we would try something similar. The garlic shrimp and coconut shrimp were just ok. The fish and chips were excellent... so that would be a go to if I were to go back. Service was quick.

This place is tiny, but the shrimp shack is yummy! I had the garlic shrimp and went back a second time a few days later and had the coconut shrimp! Both dishes are served with 2 scoops of rice and some coleslaw. They were both made to order and delicious!

Wanted something quick but with local flavor after a drive to the north shore of Kauai. Perfect for our needs. Fast service, prepared after you ordered. Tasty coconut shrimp fries and slaw.

We picked up some take out to take back to our condo instead of eating out tonight. The service was quick and we meandered the mall while waiting for our order. The garlic shrimp was delicious, the coconut shrimp not so. We also had fish and chips which tasted very fresh. The prices were reasonable and we ate at condo

Stopped for lunch, there were 4 of us in the group. We all ordered something different, all of the meal arrived within 2 minutes of each other. The taste and flavours were bold and as advertised. Sat outside, staff were friendly and efficient. Would certainly do over.
