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

Manager personable. Hostess was friendly. Wait staff checked on us frequently. Prompt service. Best Poke bowl ever had, so much so we informed the manager and chef. Everything we ordered was delicious to both adults and teens.

We stopped in for lunch after reading other reviews and were not disappointed. The atmosphere of the restaurant is relaxed and the service was great. The food was unbelievably delicious and the portions were extremely generous. Highly, highly recommend the bacon wrapped pineapple!!!

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

Went there for lack of better ideas & availability of spaced out / outside seating. Ordered wings, poke, cheese burger, pulled pork sandwich. Wings were the best, poke lacked seasoning, pork sandwich tasted too sweet, and burger was pretty bad. For $120 incl a couple...of drinks & tip, that makes this a visit to regret & forget.More

It was interesting to see a Hawaiian restaurant in Delaware so we wanted to try. Inside and outside, there’re so many flies that reminded me of other places - not Hawaii. I didn’t see many flies at other restaurants in this area. Cleaning up flies...from dishes kept us very busy all the way. As for food, I ordered crab poke, which was unique and it was good.More
