And I acquired it. My wife, not so much. We got two spicy entrees with rice. It is good stuff, in my opinion. If you like sushi you would probably like Poke. It is very Hawaiian. Mostly for take out but there are two picnic tables outside the restaurant.

The girl doing the register was a little short with customers but a line was forming so I understood the rush. So glad I got to eat here cause the poke is amazing. They aren't called "the customer service shack" they are called the "Poke shack" and they do it so well.

Great food but if looking for poke only, no other seafood salads, can get the same quality of poke in KTA or Costco for less. KTA Keauhou venter in Kona sells Marlin fish poke in any sauce which is a bit leaner than tuna is actually half price if the tuna poke!

This is a small shop where you pick up some great poke to go. There are 2 tables outside to eat at but we suggest you take your goodies and find a place on a beach to eat. These guys and gals make fresh poke like no one else. There are so many varieties to try it's a good thing... More

This is a shack along the main highway on the Big Island. There was a line out the door when we visited around 1:00 p.m. There are several choices of raw fish, a bit of cooked shrimp and pork, plus a large variety of Hawaiian sides. All of our food was delicious. (Attached to the building is another restaurant featuring... More

This place got recommended to us and having never had poke before I didn't know what to expect but boy, is this good! The place itself is completely unpretentious so don't expect to be able to sit down in a fancy environment. We took our poke and had it by the sea 5 mins down the road and it just... More

The absolute best poke in the world. Not to be missed! Fresh, local catch, awesome combos and flavors. Expect a line 11-2 everyday and worth it.
