My son and his fiancée held their wedding reception this year at the newly renovated Ohana Room at Nalu. There were 96 people in attendance and there was plenty of room to comfortably move around. 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!

Come here if it's convenient and you're the loud and rowdy type. Very loud music and loud people, and the mahi in the wrap tasted a bit fishy/old. The braised short rib taco was pretty good though.

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!
