Came here with my family after a hike in Waimea Canyon a few days after Christmas. The stand was busy, however smelled delicious and we assumed the long line was due to the popularity of the place. It ended up being a long wait for good, but not spectacular food. All of us originally wanted shrimp tacos, but were told... More

We stopped here after spending the morning in Waimea Canyon. Loved this place. Food was delicious. Lots of chickens around that will keep you entertained while you eat. I'd totally go back here again if I get the opportunity to go to Kauai.

We had the coconut shrimp, garlic shrimp, and tacos - all were great. Local drive-up places like this are some of the best places to grab food in Hawaii. Be sure to try the special tartar sauce that they make with either papaya or mango.

Perfect for sharing, the shrimp are perfectly coated with coconut and are served up nice and hot. Their dipping sauce is out of this world.

We had the most amazing shrimp at this place while touring that side of Kauai. The garlic shrimp was heavenly as was the coconut shrimp. Went back twice!

Such good shrimp. Everybody in our group loved what they got. Lots of locals and visitors. I never eat shrimp normally - but i love these.

We are lunch here. We ordered 3 types of shrimp and were delighted with all the flavors. Portion sizes were good, prices a bit high, and rice was undercooked. Overall, I would eat here again for the fresh shrimp. Don't expect a meal, just great shrimp for meal prices and appetizer portions.

Looks like another food truck, but the place is so special, and the food is really good. Take care with the savage roosters, they will attemt to steal your meal.

The shrimp station is a retail outlet for the locally farm raised shrimp. They serve it up a number of ways in a totally unassuming no frills restaurant the resembles a surf side snack shack. I can vouch for the Thai shrimp which is tasty but let's get real about it! The coconut shrimp is where it's at! Forget about... More
