I was told it was the best coconut shrimp on the island. Not sure about that. I liked it but others at the table were not as impressed. The dipping sauce was great. Good service. Diner style.

We went to The Shrimp Station in Kapaa about 4:30P on our way back to Lihue. Had the Coconut shrimp (very Ono) and the Sweet Chili Garlic Shrimp. Both served with scoops of white rice. Very affordable, tasty and plentiful. Order at the counter then pick up when ready, Sat at inside table. Parking okay. We did notice heavy traffic... More

The shrimp are so fresh you wonder if they were delivered as they were cooked. Not fancy just great shrimp and friendly service.

We come here every year. A great,, no-frills place to eat. During the day, they offer coconut shrimp, garlic shrimp, and cajun shrimp. Evening hours also offer a shrimp pasta dinner. You can have either white rice or red potatoes with your meal. Very filling and your meal is prepared pretty quickly.

Excellent coconut shrimp and the dipping sauce is very tasty. Plenty of medium sized shrimp with an coconut batter that is outstanding. Fries are just ok but the shrimp is outstanding. You won't find white tablecloths but you'll get your food in 5 minutes, it's local, it's fresh it's cheap and it's VERY GOOD!

This is just a small place, but the Shrimp is amazing. A trip to Kauai would not be complete without a stop by the Shrimp Station. One of the locals told us to stop and we sure are glad we did. They close early, so be sure to head out early and grab some great seafood.

Thank Robin47260
