We stopped here for a quick lunch and because of all the TripAdvisor reviews (and advertisements on the side of the truck from popular TV shows, awards, etc). But in my opinion, it was over-rated. Or maybe it was just what we ordered. The food...More

Doesn't look like much but great hospitality and super good. Mahi mahi was fresh and garlic shrimp was awesome. Not deep fried!

We had the coconut shrimp, Kona Iceberg (Kona coffee with a scoop of ice cream), and the orange/pineapple float. All were excellent!

So, I enjoyed my lunch here... very much... 4 solid stars. We initially found out about this place after reading some 'what to do' type magazines and people seemed to either be all about the Shrimp Shack or all about Giovanni's. I was pleasantly surprised...More
