Had lunch here and the beer is cold and the food is average with large portions. Atmosphere is upbeat and very casual. Hawaiian theme is entertaining. Service is a bit slow and prices are average...beer was a bit expensive...$5.50 for a glass. Would go back but not if out of my way. Family friendly.

Our last visit here was fantastic, so we decided to make a special trip from Rehoboth. We ordered pretzel sticks which were on special for $5. They were delicious, but you only got 3 of them. The rest of the food was ok, nothing spectacular and a little too pricey for us. With our most expensive food bill of the... More

Since this place was across the street from my hotel, we decided to give it a try. I enjoyed a nice burger with lots of toppings and was more than satisfied with the meal, service, and cost. Would recommend for families or just a place for friends to grab a bite.

This place has a wonderful theme, and is visually a great place to go when you're 'at the shore'... but that's about all it has going for it. It's a good thing you have things to look at because there is a lot of waiting, Even when business appears 'slow', the service drags. We had to wait nearly 15 minutes... More

Food is consistently and so is the service. We love the burgers and fish tacos. Nachos are outstanding and so are the harbenaro wings.

Had an awesome time there this past week with some friends. We went and sat at the bar and had some of their frozen drinks which were amazing! Also had the nacho's which were really good. This place has a good atmosphere for families as well as the younger crowd. I will definitely go back once I'm in Dewey again.

Went here with some friends for the first time last week. The food was really good, but thats a given after drinking one of their rum buckets ;-P. I would highly recommend it, it has good vibes and seems like a good place for people my age (20-somethings). Mahola!

Okay, I will admit the food was fine. It wasn't great (a burger and fries), but it wasn't bad either. What was bad was the service. Our waitress was terrible. She rarely stopped by the table to check on us and failed to mention EVERY soda (from the fountain) refill charged you the initial price for a drink repeatedly. After... More

So for Father's Day we were so exited to eat here, we were in Hawaii two months ago and wanted a special occasion to go. So we got there, found a great parking spot across the street, we were sat as soon as we came in and were greated shortly after. Our waitress seemed nice and I was exited that... More
