We wanted to try something a little different and the food was average but the place was so noisy that we could not even hear the person next to us. Had a terrible time finding a parking space, we had to drive around several times.

Nalu is my favorite spot for happy hour when I'm in Dewey. I've had Sophia, Maria, Eryn, and Julia as my servers and they have all been fantastic! Fun and charismatic staff. Family oriented atmosphere. Great Happy Hour specials. Clean! Fun music.

Fun decor, good food and great service. The location is great as its walking distance from many Dewey hotels.

I got take out from Nalu while on a quick trip to Dewey. The cobb salad was delicious. I also got the french fries, which were also tasty. The restaurant staff was very nice and thought of all the items I'd need for my take-out, including plenty of ketchup!

We had an open area in the middle for dancing. The tables can be set up to your preference. The room was very classy with... More

The grilled pineapple wrapped in bacon witha sea salt caramel drizzle is DA BOMB. The couple at the next table already placed their order when they saw this arrive at our table. Asked how we liked it and we said OMG awesome so they added an order to their food choices. I had the coconut shrimp which was great. My... More

Been in and around Dewey beach for a week. By far the best restaurant I have visited. Drinks are great, atmosphere great and quite possibly the best burger I have eaten. Thumbs up!
