My girlfriend and I were able to try this awesome restaurant. We are local to the OBX just not to Ocracoke. When we came here for breakfast a few friends had already told us where to go and what to eat and this was one of them. The seafood omelette was probably the best tasting food I have ever eaten....

Loved Dajio. It offers whatever you want for dinner - formal, patio, or bar as well as an extensive menu of light options or a full meal. We enjoyed sharing the roasted beet salad, served with to die for corn bread. The fresh fish was great as well as the crab chowder. Give Dajio a try, you will not be... More

The food was just SO good. All of it. That is my usual experience. I had the cilantro pesto with shrimp. Partner had Mac and cheese crab. We had the ceviche app. I wanted to try everything on the menu. Service: Before I say a thing it should be understood that in such a remote location with a super short... More

Dajio has delicious pizza! You can add almost anything you want to it. It's great! They have live music a lot of evenings and it's really fun. Indoor, outdoor and bar seating are available. If the bar is crowded it gets pretty warm in there. But once you step outside it feels better.

We did "late night" @9pm at Dajio -the only resturant still servicing food in walking distance- had live music and oven brick pizza. Pizza was little high in price-each pizza came with 6 slices- we ordered a cheese pizza and got a Margherita Pizza $11.00 with mozzarella cheese (paying $3.00 extra) for one pizza and pepperoni (add another $3.00) on...

I initially stopped in to Dajio early in the evening to have a beer on a Sunday night. Though the place was quiet, the band that was playing was awesome. There seems to be a fair bit of music on Ocracoke for it's size, but this blues/rock band stood out compared to the others I saw that night, and would... More

The food is excellent here. Their rendition of shrimp and grits is wonderful, as is their grilled cheese (who would have ordered this in a restaurant?). The crab mac and cheese is a must have as well.The service can be a little lacking and they are not very accommodating to anything outside of their realm. Examples-Showed up a little past... More

We looked forward to eating here after the reviews. When we arrived they told us there was one fish left so we said we wanted it. Two invites later the waitress returned and told us there was no more left. So we ordered crab dip. It came relatively quick. Then the waitress came back and my daughter ordered the gnocchi... More

You can have a nice meal inside, but it is really fun to visit the outdoor bar to the right. It's amazing when they have live music. When there is no live music, it feels like a beach bar. It's a fun place to go at night for a beer and a nice crowd.
