We came as a crowd- seating with a reservation for 16 was not a problem! Good wait staff, chef/owner checked in on us, very clean. Ordered shrimp cocktail and LOVED it-served with fresh garlic and olive oil, drizzled with balsamic vinegar-on my permanent Must Order list! House summer bar drink was a fruit crush-very refreshing. Everyone seemed pleased with their... More

We came based on the reviews here. The lasagna was the largest piece I have seen in a long while. I just wish the meat sauce was internal to the lasagna, not just outside. It did taste very good. My companions penne and sauce was made with a different sauce, a very good sign. Both the mussels and clams were... More

Dewey can become very crowed on weekends. Mama's bar is a great place to break away from the crowd and enjoy a world famous Harvey Wallbanger made by Nico!!

My wife and I came to Dewey for vacation this week. This evening we walked coastal highway to look at shops and find a place for dinner. We didn't want bar food or a "beach bar" or some dirty, run down joint. My wife chose your restaurant because it looked clean and the doors were closed which meant midday likely... More

You may not notice this place amongst the larger party spots in Dewey. However, you are missing a great time if you don't stop in! Nico is a tremendous bar tender with lots of tricks up his sleeve. Just ask him! He will show you! We have a place in town and try to stop whenever we are around! Go... More

One of my favorite places in Dewey. Always a great time, great food, and great people! Their veggie omelette is a great healthy alternative for breakfast, and their pizza, made by actual real Italian guys (go ahead and ask to meet them - they'd love it) is beyond compare! Definitely recommend it!
