“what service?”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

When we arrived there was no hostess. We finally got someone's attention and were seated. We ordered the half price drinks and tacos, which were both specials so they shouldn't have taken long to prepare. The place was almost empty and there were two bar tenders. After asking about our drinks, twice, and making a trip to the bar to ask we still didn't get our drinks or food after sitting there for 25 minutes. The table next to us was filthy and there was no attempt to clean it up. Clearly there was no manager present and the place was on autopilot. We finally got up and left.

“Great food, drinks, and atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

This is a great place to grab a few drinks and some bar food, but their actual dinner menu is also very good! The food was fresh and delicious. The sweet potato salad was my favorite :) we returned here a few times on our trip to Dewey beach!

“A must while visiting the area or passing through town!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

I would highly recommend stopping at Nalu should you find yourself near Dewey Beach! The ambiance of the restaurant/bar, coupled with the delicious food options, drinks and service is a rare thing to find these days.
I had visited this restaurant before during a previous vacation and was very much looking forward to checking it out again during this trip. Nalu did not disappoint!!.
We had incredible service and was checked on by the owner to make sure our visit was most enjoyable.
High fives for exceeding my expectations from the last visit!

“Island Party”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

We stopped for a quick beer before turning in for the night. We stayed for several as the bartenders were a hoot, very attentive, and the place had a fun vibe. We were only in town for the one night, but we will be back and this will be a stop for sure.

“Good time”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Since none of the restaurants were open at the Hyatt, having Nalu directly across the street was a great place for cocktails and dessert. Bartenders were fun and welcoming to visitors. And we didn't have to worry about driving!
