Da Poke Shack offers the most distinctive version of the Big Island's definitive dish. The staff is excellent, offering tastes of the various preparations and turning even a brief visit into a memorable event. I had heard so many good things about this restaurant, and it absolutely lived up to expectations. I found the Ahi poke the best, especially Wet... More

Da Poke Shack is not exactly a restaurant. You choose size, sauce and sides at the counter and decide weather to takeout or eat-in. No matter what your decision is, you'll have an absolutely delicious Hawaiian food experience. Due to the "Always fresh, never frozen" motto, ingredients depend on availability of the catch of the day (before).

I read about Da Poke Shack before I arrived on the Big Island and, from the reviews, it appeared to be one destination that I just had to experience. Poke is a dish I had never tried, but, as a culinary adventurer and sushi lover, it looked appealing. To begin with, the Shack has only one small table inside and... More

We were starving and wanted something real healthy, so we're searched out Da Poke Hack at about 4:00. They were just about out of poke with an hour or two Togo before closing time. We ordered remnants of what was left and ate it in the car. There are two outside umbrella tables and one small bench inside. This is... More

Had a few great Poke places. This one is my favourite. Nice flavour options. Well priced and very tasty not fishy at all. For one price you get two Poke options with rice and a side.

We can't get poke in SoCal; we get Poke Bowls which only have a passing resemblance. We got off the plane and headed straight here. Was not disappointed.

Best place for early lunch in West Hawaii. Get there early or miss out. Shoyu and dynamite (avo) poke are my go-to choices.

First stop after arriving in Kona was at Da Poke Shack. The young lady behind the counter was very informative of the different poke available and also provided samples. My husband and I ordered the large plate which is more than enough food for 2 people. consists of 4 pokes your choice, 2 sides we got seaweed and spicy crab... More

This is my wife's favourite place to eat in Kona. We went in September 2016 and we went to the location that was closer to the Kona side. It is a short drive from most Kona hotels. The location is located at the bottom floor of a hotel with its own entrance with a few short term parking spots. There... More

My husband and I go to Da Poke Shack whenever we get a chance. It's a great little place to meet for lunch. Be prepared for lines as it can get pretty busy in there. But to stop in and pick up some dishes for lunch or dinner and take the food to go is well worth it. We like... More
