“a must-do on the north shore”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Loved the shrimp, loved the picnic table atmosphere. It was particularly crowded when we visited, with a long line even to order, but worth the wait. The scene was really fun and we enjoyed checking out the other food trucks/stalls. Only downside was that our entire family reeked of garlic for the rest of the day!

“Good but expensive”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Need I say more.. I mean c'mon it is a truck selling prawns? How much was it again?? It is a must-do visit however it isn't cheap for what it is, I guess in keeping with everything else in Hawaii..

I'm sorry that you feel it was expensive, but doing business in Hawaii is expensive... I hope you enjoyed the experience at the shrimp truck and hope to see you again in the future...

“Garlic Shrimp Scampi is the Best!”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We tried the garlic shrimp scampi, hot & spicy shrimp and lemon butter shrimp. The scampi is the best; however, the other two were great. Don’t forget to grab BBQ corn that’s right next door!

“North Shore Shrimp Haven”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

I heard good things about this place so when my family went to Hawaii, we had to try it. We tried almost everything on the menu and each kind of food that we took simply tasted excellent! The shrimp dishes were excellent. Even the meat choices were awesome. This food stop is worth travelling miles to.
