We were here in late August, on a week night and my feeling was that they weren't fully staffed. We waited a long time to have our order taken. The pork sandwich was OK but not very notable. The curly fries were the best part of the dinner. They have Hawaiian beer. the most interesting part of the fairly long... More

The food here is surprisingly good! The Nalu Nachos are gigantic and awesome tasting! The chicken dish we had was even better tasting than the awesome nachos! Great Hawaiian surf bar in Dewey!

Went here for a light dinner and happy hour, as it was directly across from our hotel. We couldn't be more pleased. Great prices from 4-6 and the prices were great. Not only that but the food was excellent. Not busy at that time, and our waitress was the best! Cheerful, extremely helpful as I am not a big eater... More

Tiki torches welcomed us into Nalu Hawaiian Surf Bar and Grille, where we were promptly seated at a table with views of flat screen TVs playing vintage "Endless Summer" surf videos and the Olympic games. Our warm and friendly waitress immediately took our drink orders from the bar menu which was replete with many fun tropical drinks and a selection... More

We went to Nalu because it is ranked No. 2 in Dewey and it is very close to the Hyatt. I really liked the almost "lanai" like feeling of the window seating. The windows were wide open - pushed to the side - and both sides facing the street had the feel of outdoor dining. The service was very nice,... More

We went here after seeing a concert in Rehobeth Beach. It was after 10:00 PM and most of the restaurants were already closing. Nalu had a late evening menu and Michelle the server was great. There were four of us and we all ordered delicious appetizers and drinks. That was to be expected. However, I did share with her that... More

We spent a week in Dewey the first week in August and this was our closest bar. We had lunch twice and everything was great including all three types of tacos. We went for drinks on Saturday prior to the LSMJ 25 year concert at the Rutter and had no problem getting drinks. The bartenders were fun and kept the... More
