Stopped to take a photo and looked for 'places nearby' to eat. This was 600m away. Great food and easy to walk across to the beach and eat there. Perfect food, just the right portion size for lunch and in a perfect location.

Great food, very friendly service, not too busy when we were there. Everything we had was great, including the crab cakes, surf & surf (shrimp & ahi fish) and coconut shrimp. Best was probably the surf & surf with medium hot sauce 😋

Aloha from the owner of the Shrimp Shack! I'm sorry that you think we only serve deep fried food and rice. If you would have looked at all the pictures on our extensive menu board you would have noticed that deep fried food is not what we specialize in preparing. What the Shrimp Shack is known for and why we were featured on the Food Network twice is fresh local sautéed, grilled and steamed seafood. We have pan sautéed garlic shrimp, pan sautéed spicy garlic shrimp, fresh grilled mahi in Molokai sauce with carmelized onions, steamed pacific clams, steamed and poached mussels, whole snow crab, grilled 8oz. New York Steak etc. The deep fried food is not the major draw of the Shrimp Shack. Our draw is fresh local cooked to order shrimp and fish. I hope you will dine again at the Shrimp Shack and this time order the special items that have kept us in business on the side of the road for 17 years. Mahalo

Aloha! Perhaps I responded to the wrong person. If you get to Oahu again your steak and shrimp is on me!
