Shrimp tacos were tomatoe mush and couldn't see or taste the shrimp at all. The coconut shrimp on the other hand was good.

We picked up carry-out on our way back to the hotel from the canyon. My husband and I split an order of coconut shrimp and fries. We got 10 large shrimp and a lot of fries, which was enough to fill us up. You could really taste the coconut and the shrimp were not over-cooked. We didn't eat at the... More

We are here once and the food was good but portions were small for the price. It is a good place to stop for lunch before heading up to Waimea Canyon.

The shrimp tacos were way overpriced and then it was difficult to even find any shrimp. It was minced up with other things and definitely not worth the money. On a positive note, the staff was super friendly.

We had a quick bite for lunch. We ordered both the beer battered and the coconut shrimp. The shrimp were big and not over cooked. I also liked the tartar sauce that came with it.

Only 2 gluten-free options. Plain shrimp or thai spicy shrimp. I had the thai shrimp. It was very spicy-I'll give them that. Nothing exciting though. I wouldn't go back.

We tried 4 different preparations of shrimp, all were very good. Be aware that only the coconut shrimp were peeled, so the saucy ones are messy. We enjoyed the chicken gang. Easy to find, right on the highway.

Just kind of an outdoorsy, picnic table laid back kind of place - with shrimp everything and great shrimp tacos. Actually a meal for $12.95 that fills you up, but you want to buy another one, they are so good! Recommended to us by some locals.

We've been here several times and made a special trip to come here again, but this was our last time. Tables weren't wiped and dozens of flies everywhere. While the chickens on Kauai are a problem everywhere, it was especially bad here since there was trash and food everywhere so they are basically being fed - and with all the... More

When I saw the price, I thought that $12 for lunch is expensive... But they are super tasty. I ordered ginger shrimp and my husband ordered coconut one, both are really good. I like to have their recepe and like to make it at home!!!
