Da Shrimp Hale has opened its second location at Lahaina Gateway, West Maui’s largest outdoor shopping center. Da Shrimp Hale West marks the first expansion for the family-owned restaurant, which opened its original location in Kahului in 2016. The restaurant will have approximately 2,843 square feet of space in the prime corner location next to Foodland Farms.
Da Shrimp Hale West introduces the signature “shell-on” dining concept to Lahaina, featuring a simple menu of shrimp, clams, crawfish, mussels, oysters, Snow crab legs, King crab legs, whole lobster and Dungeness crab at market prices. The seafood is then steamed, flavored and spiced to the guests’ specifications, and delivered “shell-on” for a full-flavored, hands-on dining experience.
In addition to the signature steamed offerings, Da Shrimp Hale West also serves fried seafood baskets with options including Beer Battered Shrimp, Fried Catfish, Fried Calamari, and more. The innovative dessert menu features island-inspired favorites including Ube Cheesecake, Ube Cheesecake Lumpia, and Fried Ice Cream.
“Using quality products and supporting local vendors to the best of our ability is our number one priority,” said Heidi Allado, co-owner of Da Shrimp Hale West. “Second to that is providing a family-oriented service and atmosphere, and incredible food at affordable prices. This is what we most value and strive for! We are so excited to open our second location at Lahaina Gateway, and look forward to serving the West Maui community!”
Each week, the restaurant showcases Mele Aloha Fridays with live music from 5:30-7:30pm, and the Prime Rib Dinner Special of slow-roasted USDA prime rib. Da Shrimp Hale West is BYOB (beer and wine only), with a limit of two servings per person. Da Shrimp Hale West is currently open Wednesday-Saturday from 11am-9pm and Sunday from 11am-4pm (closed Monday and Tuesday at this time).
“We are honored that Lahaina Gateway has been chosen as the westside location for Da Shrimp Hale’s newest eatery,” said Diana Whitt, General Manager of Lahaina Gateway. “The addition of Da Shrimp Hale West is another step forward in the ongoing revitalization of our Center, which is quickly becoming a must-stop-spot in Maui’s culinary landscape.”
