A well-deserved lunch after a morning spent at the lookouts at Pu'u O Kila, Kalalau Valley and Waimea Canyon. The Shrimp Station is basic but the meals are quickly delivered, delicious and very reasonably priced.

The fries were good too. If you need to use the restroom I would avoid this place. It ruins your appetite.

The coconut shrimp are amazing here, probably the best shrimp I’ve ever had. My husband had the “got garlic” shrimp with the potatoes and those were also delicious! Definitely worth stopping. Prices were decent and the potion size was good. They have a nice patio...More

Did a quick stop after visiting Waimea canyon. We ordered one Cajun shrimp & one coconut shrimp. My coconut shrimp was really good. Not too sweet or heavily breaded. Lots of chickens & roosters to keep one company.

Some of the shrimp dishes were just drowned in sauce, which led to a messy eating experience. The preparations (spices, etc.) were really just ok. Not particularly great. We had expected better, based on other reviews.

Prepares shrimp a bunch of tasty ways. One note though: in many of the dishes are shrimp are unshelled, which can be kind of a challenge to eat. The cajun, though spicy and tasty, is kind of a mess shelling the shrimp dripping in sauce.

I ordered the Cajun Shrimp. The sauce was very good and they also let me have rice AND potatoes instead of just picking one. The only thing that I would say that I did not like about this is the shrimp was not peeled at...More

Looked up places to eat lunch on Google maps when visiting Waimea, Kauaii. The Shrimp Station showed up so we tried it out. Got the Thai grilled shrimp and Sweet Chili shrimp. We could not believe our tongues. Outstanding and the sauce on the scoop...More
