“Tasty Food at this Roadside Stand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Don't be afraid to stop that this roadside stand. If you like coconut shrimp you'll be glad you did. Delicious and plentiful. My husband had the shrimp tacos and was also very pleased. A good lunch stop, indeed.

“Somewhere in the middle...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

TripAdvisor's rating system goes from "Average" to "Very Good" but if I could, I would rate Shrimp Station simply "Good".

Let me preface this by saying that I am a self-proclaimed coconut shrimp connoisseur so I was drawn to Shrimp Station when I saw that their ads boasted that it offered "the best coconut shrimp on the planet". That's a pretty lofty claim and I can't say it lived up to its slogan. It was *really good* coconut shrimp but it definitely wasn't the best I've ever had. It was a little on the greasy side. My fiance ordered a shrimp burger which he really enjoyed and said he would definitely go for it again.

Shrimp Station itself is a pretty relaxed spot with outdoor seating and no frills service. There are two spots on Kauai - one in Waimea and one in Kapaa. We visited the Waimea shop. If I find myself back in Kauai, I'd definitely visit Shrimp Station again in a heartbeat and you should too. Just don't expect it to be "the best coconut shrimp on the planet".

“Cheap and good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went for the coconut shrimp - $1 per large shrimp! There is nothing fancy about the Shrimp Station. Place your order at the service window, pick it up when your number is called.

“Excellent Shrimp Tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

the shrimp tacos were large enough for two as lunch, the other items are single portions. the pricing is expected for the quality and Kauai pricing.

“Good stuff”

This was a good stop for a nice quick outdoor lunch. The coconut shrimp were very good, as were the other shrimp fare we had.
