Nalu is super delicious with a fun and friendly environment! The shrimp tacos were extremely satisfying and the service was great! I've been a few times now and am always pleased with my experiences! Definitely a must try in Dewey!

This is the perfect place to people-watch and enjoy decent, reasonable pub fare. Very family friendly for the Dewey area. Has the best Kailua pork nachos--huge serving, always freshly prepared with real pico de gallo. A meal in and of itself. Parking free in town...More

Creative and delicious food. Crab cakes the best here despite what other restaurants in town advertise. Burgers too. And even has a sushi item. Only downside is can get noisy from bar side of restaurant but even then a fun atmosphere.

We had an excellent meal at Nalu. The food was high quality and the presentation was great. Was a nice change from the typical bar food that Dewey has to offer.

Great food, friendly wait staff and an excellent happy hour menu. I would suggest any dish with the seared ahi tuna or grilled mahi mahi. Their tacos are also on point. This place is by far the best restaurant in town.
