Great beer on tap and appetizers between $3-$5... I recommend the tempura shrimp tacos. The nachos we ordered seemed like they were sitting in kitchen waiting for someone to order. The cheese didn't seem melted all the way. The upside was its a big enough portion for two.

Nice place and the service isn't bad for the beach. Prices are very reasonable. Stay away from the crab cake (not good) cuz everything else is good.

Friendly place to get together for Happy Hour. You will always strike up a conversation with someone. Bartenders are super. $5 app and drink specials.

One's best option for dining in Dewey Beach is to drive, take the trolley or an Uber to Rehoboth. This is the best option now as it was the first time I visited Dewey several decades ago. Dewey is a drinking and party town, not a foodie town. But if one must eat in Dewey, Nalu Hawaiian Bar and Grill,... More

Nachos were burnt and boring. Food was over cooked. Service was friendly and atmosphere was fun. Good drink menu and prices.

We love Nalu's!!! The food is great, the price is right and the atmosphere is fantastic. We love the nachos, they are fantastic. We love to sit next to the open windows and enjoy the surroundings while we eat!

We stopped by for lunch. It was a great little spot with tasty drinks and a solid beer selection. The pork and nachos were delicious!
