While the writing is off the wall, the food is still excellent and reasonably priced. Nothing elegant but very good!

Small venue in mall--only a few tables and no ambiance---best suited for takeout. The Firerock Garlic Shrimp. Coconut Shrimp and Shrimp Tacos were tasty. Service is friendly but very slooooooow.

Great stop if you love shrimp. They have super spicy options that delighted my group. Great location and we stopped here more than once on our trip.

The shrimp was good, but service was slow and I thought $15 for 8 shrimp and some rice was a little too expensive. This place was better than Shrimp Station, but nothing like the shrimp trucks on Oahu.

We were looking for an easy low impact dinner option and decided to give this a try. Lots of food for $15! I had the garlic shrimp - it was delicious - and I splurged for an additional $2 and bought it peeled. Otherwise, pretty sure my fingers would still smell like garlic... My wife had the coconut shrimp and... More

It all started in a truck. I'm not sure if they still run the truck, but at least stop by the restaurant. No visit is complete without at least one order of garlic shrimp. They menu is pretty diverse, but mainly shrimp driven. You really cannot go wrong with the classic garlic shrimp, coconut shrimp or the chili shrimp. The... More

Small hole in the wall at the mall, but well worth the visit. We ordered the coconut shrimp platter and the Savage shrimp. Loved them both! Wish I would have found this place sooner, I could have eaten there every day!

Very small place, run by locals, Angel is so nice and attentive even with the dinner rush. If you like garlic then you will love the garlic shrimp, my wife enjoys coconut shrimp and she liked they were not all greasy. There is a few tables inside or your can dine right outside. We ate there twice during our 7... More

We vacationed in Kauai for 6 days and ate at Savage Shrimp twice. The food was very tasty, plentiful, and reasonably priced.

Several different preparations for the shrimp. Loved the Fire Rock plate and the Aloha tacos. Also the fish and chips (mahi mahi) was large and wonderful. Hadn't visited in a couple years and happy to report quality is still top notch. Not tablecloth but great casual restaurant!
