Yes, that's right. Some of the best food anywhere. Get there soon after they open because when they sell out, ( which they do everyday), they close. Lines are out the door a lot. Everything is fresh and good. When in Kona you must eat there, period.

Parking was tough, not many spots. Poke was relatively pricy ($22/lb) but taste average with that price! Little bit disappointed.

One of the first things I do when I come to Kona is visit Da Poke Shack, it's that good and they have quite the variety. Don't be afraid to ask for a taste, they're happy to oblige.

This place came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. On our way from the airport to our house we made a stop here. It was later in the afternoon so they were out of a few things. Ordered a bowl and it came with some awesome spicy octopus, calamari and ahi tuna, each was just perfect with the brown... More

The other reviewers nailed it, this place has legit poke in a spectacular setting. For "fesh, never frozen!" tuna and other sea treats, I think it's very fairly priced. It's delicious!

Bought 3 kinds of poke. All we're great! Service was helpful and nice. Picked up a couple "good as f••k" T shirts as well.

These people know how to fix poke---many different ways, in fact. Better get here early because when the poke is gone, they close. Only a couple of tables outside, so get friendly with the other guests. Having read other reviews, we knew we wanted to try this but didn't realize how extensive their menu really was. Yes, go here for... More
