Went to this place for a quick bite, and we wanted to try some shrimp. Shrimp was good, you could taste the shrimp, just the right amount of flavoring. Different flavors. Use lots of napkins though. Birds/ Chickens wander around, but this seems to be normal for Hawaii. They just ask you don't feed them. Prices were reasonable, Clean. Staff... More

Our first visit. Had to try the coconut shrimp from all the adverts. It was very nice but not as big and fluffy as I had hoped. Seating very basic and not ideal for a special meal out but perfect for a lunchtime treat. Would like to try the shrimp pasta after 5 o'clock one time!

Shrimp as fast food. Fixed maybe 8 different ways. I had the coconut shrimp and my wife, the Thai shrimp. Both were OK but nothing special. Marginally better than you would expect to find frozen at the supermarket. Sauce was very good. Atmosphere? Forget it. All the charm of a repurposed hamburger stand including service from a bored teenager and... More

We've been going to The Shrimp Tation for six years! It's great Shrimp in a fast food environment. Nothing fancy here! But the selection of Shrimp preparations is great. We've tried them all. Each one has been better than its predecessor. If you're on Kauai, do not miss this great Shrimp eating experience.

Stopped by for highly recommended shrimp. I got coconut and my husband got beer battered. They were served with Papaya ginger sauce which was delicious! An order was 12 shrimp and fries. The price was $12. Highly recommend!

I got the Thai shrimp and my husband got the shrimp tacos, and both were delicious. Despite the warning, neither were especially spicy, they just had a little base level of kick to them. The food can be a bit messy, so don't wear nice clothes, and sit by the window for a nice breeze and ocean smells!

I started with the first item on the menu, garlic shrimp. The fresh garlic chunks, cooked just right into the sauce augmented the taste of my jumbo shrimp. My wife skipped over to the coconut shrimp in their own papaya sauce. We are coming back to fill in the gaps.

We make it one of our must go to's each time we come. I've reviewed before not much has changed. Price is high for what you get so it's never to busy. Garlic shrimp is in a heavy cream sauce. Very good the bad thing is you have to dig in your food and peal the shrimp very messy! Coconut... More

Garlic shrimp was great! Yummy creamy sauce with the shrimp and a couple scoops of white rice. The coconut shrimp was fresh and had a wonderful flavor! The beer batter shrimp was great too! Both were served on French fries with a great dipping sauce! Small, nothing fancy, but won't break the bank and you will fill up!

When you see a Shrim Station (there are several locations), we'd recommend that you stop! The coconut shrimp is made with fresh coconut and a light tempura batter - delicious! The garlic butter shrimp is great too. Definitely worth a visit.

Thank Becky S
