Poke so fresh, any fresher and it is still on the fishing pole!

For everyone wanting the freshest poke, and good customer service. Get to Da Poke Shack as early as possible in the day, as crowds soon form, and you do not want to miss out. The local folks REALLY know their poke!! It is a must for locals and especially for VISITORS wanting a great fresh poke... read more

Food is good, Poke is fresh and tasty, LauLau is good. Only reason for 1 star off is hard to park and if you blink you will miss it. Place is awesome however and will definitely go back.

I live in Kona and eat poke all the time. But every time I visit the poke shack I'm surprised at their high prices! A pole bowl and a beer cost me $17+ !!! Their competitions, Umeke's is way cheaper with larger portions and better poke overall!

small space and crowded. A lot to choose from. Found out poke is not to my liking but apparently is to many others. They do have shredded pork which is good.

We joined the quick moving line, and listened ahead for what their smooth system was. When it was our turn, the staff patiently guided us through options and choices new to us. Moments later we took our bounty to a nearby beach and enjoyed the healthy fare. A strong recommendation to those looking for substance and freshness at a fair... More

I would have eaten lunch here more than twice if I had discovered it more than two days before I left Kona. Ordering starts out simple; either poke or pork. Then it gets complicated. There is an amazing selection of fresh poke in 8 different marinates. There is LauLau pork or Kalua pork. Then there is the array of sides.... More

Do yourself a favor and add Da Poke Shack to your list of eats in Kona! You'll thank me later. I had the big plate that offers 5 poke choices, + 2 sides with 2 scoops of rice. Fresh, flavorful and friendly service!! This place oozes Aloha from their welcoming customer service to the love they put in your belly!!... More

My wife and I came here because of the Trip Adviser reviews, and we were not let down! We came over to the Big Island for our honeymoon and all we could talk about was going to Da Poke Shack. Sadly we only went once since our hotel was an hour north. The location is connected to a condo association,... More
