Sat outside on a beautiful day here for lunch. Drinks were great-and strong. Service was very quick. The shrimp tacos were seriously amazing. The slaw MADE the tacos and they were the perfect size if you are a light eater like me. French fries were...amazing. Not sure why, but they just were. They appeared to have live music often but we never went during the evening. Highly recommend this place for it's sweet, beach vibes and great food!More

Sat at the bar and were well taken care of by Jimmy and Heather. Drinks were great! We had poke bowls that were good, but not super-flavorful. Fun bar atmosphere!

While in town we tried Nalu Hawaiian Surf Bar & Grille. They were Quick to get us seated and drink orders going. Started with an order of nachos but had to add pork to the order to make it awesome. Expensive but very good and...enough for 4 adults to split for sure. Our Road tacos with hulu chicken and pork plus a cheesesteak wrap were very. Atmosphere is great. Belles Two Hearted IPA on tap was nice.More

Very nice venue. Service was very good. Pad Thai and chicken lemongrass potstickers were excellent. Flank steak tacos were okay. Flies were a problem. This whole area can have fly issues any time there is any west wind. We’ll go back if the wind is...rightMore

Walk into a fun atmosphere with live music and people partying and talking alike. The band is playing covers of popular pop/rock tunes and rock classics alike. I ordered the chicken wings with huli bbq sauce and the chicken lemongrass pot-stickers and though the wings...was good it was the pot-stickers I made another order to take back to my room with. The drink was pricey enough for me to only order one but strong enough for one to be enough. By far my favorite part of Nalu Hawaiian Surf Bar & Grille was the atmosphere. The band playing was having a good time and the bartenders serving food and drinks was having a good time with them while still getting to the guest in a timely fashion.More

Nalu became our choice when other area establishments didn't seem to fit our needs and wants this particular evening. We were seated promptly and seen by a waitress in a short amount of time who took our drink orders. Beers were promptly delivered and our...order taken. We had the Mango Habanero Wings which had no heat at all, but were very sticky. We shared the Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp which were quite tasty and we shared a salad. Food was all decent. Waitress was very pleasant. Some large loud parties going on in the distance. If you like loud music the atmosphere is great.More

Dined with family including children. Selection was good but food was just okay. Service was good. Experience was ruined by fruit flies surrounding us during our meal and getting into our food while we ate.

We ate and drank lunch and had the coconut shrimp that were very good. Our bartender / server "Katie", made us freshly squeezed margaritas that were great! Katie was the best bartender we had during our stay in Dewey Beach. We'll probably return in the...future.More

We were staying right near Nallu so decided to stop in for dinner. We had a great waiter who recommended the Japanese Fried Chicken and it was very good. The rice bowl was a little too salty but still good. We really like that all...the windows were open and that there was music. There is also a location in Rehobeth beach.More

We stopped by twice to enjoy drinks and live music. Staff was friendly. While it was busy, we really liked the calmer atmosphere compared to some other establishments in the area. We didn't dine here, but the menu looks interesting and the food being served...looked delicious. They serve the biggest nacho platter I have ever seen. Overall, this was a nice place to relax with a drink and unwind. We would definitely visit again!More

Grabbed a quick lunch at Nalu's today. Excellent food in a lovely beach setting. Waitress was terrific - very friendly and food arrived promptly. Poke Bowl was great as was the Cobb Salad. Dogfish Head on Tap and super Guave Margarita. We'll definitely be back...to Nalu's in Dewey.More
