Fun Family Dinner

The service was good, the drinks were good and the food was good. Something for everyone - meat lovers and seafood lovers. Lively location within a block of the beach

The service was friendly and fast. The flavors of the food was different than our everyday flavors and was delicious! I would definitely come here again. The manager was really friendly too.

Stopped by for lunch because we enjoyed dining here in the past. Our waitress was very good and helpful. I wanted the shrimp tacos but wanted them grilled not tempura. I was told that it would be an additional charge of $5 since it would be considered an add on (I wonder if I would have received the tempura shrimp... More

Went with my gf on Monday during happy hour. Happy hours specials are great. We got out with dinner and drinks for 30 bucks. Tacos and drinks were really good. The pineapple ale beer is good too.

We enjoyed our appetizers and tacos. The Kalua pork was delicious and I'd recommend anything with it as the main ingredient. It was tender, flavorful and not the slightest bit greasy. We also got the key lime cheese cake which was very good and a huge portion. We plan to return.

We came to Dewey for an event and booked a room at the Best Western. Got here after 8, very hungry, and saw Nalu across the street so went there.

My husband I and stopped her for lunch one day. We decided to sit at the bar. It was a Saturday in April, around 1:30 and not at all crowded. I had read reviews so we thought we would try it out. We started with the Dynamite roll. You get 6 small pieces that are so good. Could definitely get... More

My husband and I spent an overnight stay in Dewey Beach and Nalu was recommended by the front desk clerk. After checking out TripAdvisor, we decided to give it a try. We decided to split an order of nachos with shrimp. As you can see by the picture, it was huge ! It was also delicious. I also had a... More

We just love this gem. Fun friendly staff, great appetizers (try the bacon wrapped pineapples in caramel sauce). Nice views with a very beach atmosphere... Burgers are the BEST!!!
