Good food, friendly service

Nice concept. Hawaiian inspired food choices in a variety if price points. Ahi tuna "burger" was overcooked (not seared and rare) but the pulled pork and crab cake sandwiches were good and nicely presented. Server was friendly and knowledgeable about local area.

From happy hour to specials to the wipeout bucket if you cannot find something good here you won't find it anywhere. Pork sliders, tacos, burgers, nachos, seared tuna and the various drinks this place is a hit with the whole family spanning 3 generations. Walk up bar and the overall atmosphere is really cool.

I really try to reserve my 5-star reviews for truly exceptional experiences, and our second visit to Nalu was even better than the first! We like to go on Mondays for 1/2 priced tacos and $5 margaritas. there's some great variations available for tacos and the drinks were generous. Very friendly and helpful staff, great atmosphere and cool breezes with... More

We keep coming back to this restaurant every time we visit Dewey Beach. Sea food is very fresh and well prepared

Decided to stop into Nalu while driving up from OC and so glad we did. This place has great decor that makes you feel right in Hawaii. I had the papaya crush since it was only $5 and it was delicious! I also ordered the pork taco and shrimp taco which were filled with flavor. Husband ordered the Cobb salad... More

Very nice atmosphere. Went there for their Monday taco special. All tacos are half off on Mondays and they have some great happy hour appetizers on special from 4-6. They have some of their own beers on draft and thought they were good also. Give it a try if you are in the area. You won't be disappointed.

Me and some mommy friends took a road trip to Dewey for the day. We were parked right next to Nalu and decided to give it a try. To drink, I had the Blue Hawaiian. I admit, it was a little small, but it was slushy and delicious! For an appetizer I had cheese quesadilla with kahlua chicken. It came... More

We started with the kalua pork spring rolls (a must order) and their famous nachos and washed it down with a giant group bucket cocktail (I forget the name of it, but it's similar to a Bay Breeze). The kalua pork sandwich got two thumbs up as did the hawaiian salad and kalua pork taco. In short, make sure you... More

Love the atmosphere here. Clean, friendly staff and awesome decor! Loved the pineapple wheat beer and my hubby loved how many beer options they had. Food was great too.
