Had the best fried clam strips at happy hour. Great tacos & crab cake sandwich. Really great service during the week. On the weekend it was a different story. On the weekend night we went, the help was busy taking selfies of their "nalapalousa" outfits and it was the only time we had an under par meal. This was our... More

Another great night. Bil, nick, Lewis, were amazing. Little put off that it took over one hour fifteen minutes for 52 pick up to come on. The little dude running with his iPad checking EACH band member got old. JUST PLAY MUSIC!

Not sure how this place doesn't have 5 stars since it was the best food we ate while we were in Dewey. I had the Waikiki Ahi sandwich with caramelized onions soy sauce & a fabulous wasabi mayo that was to die for! We had a crab dip which was awesome! The nachos were good but I am not a... More

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.
