Fresh!

I had the perfect Angus burger and my partner had a seafood stew that was excellent! We ordered take out and it was ready in 20 minutes as promised.

We traveled to Ocracoke on our first day in the area. We traveled down from Kill Devil Hills, so it was a rather long drive (1 1/2 hrs.) Interesting scenery. You have to take the ferry, which offers lovely views, but the island itself is rather small and a bit disappointing. We were not disappointed in our lunch. Hubby had... More

We went here for dinner and actually sat at outside bar, ordered appetizers and split a few dinners. The staff was great, waiter had great suggestions, good drinks, and very good food. Not one complaint. A must for dinner. We will definitely be back.

We had the pleasure of having lunch at Dajio's today and totally enjoyed ourselves. The service was friendly and attentive. We ate outside and the weather was beautiful. We started with the shrimp & crab dip. It was full of shrimp and lumps of crabmeat. Served with blue tortilla corn chips. So GOOD!!! I had the fried green tomato sandwich... More

This is such a lovely restaurant. The menu includes some great fresh preparations, from the main courses to the sides (really inventive slaw) and even condiments (not your grandmother's tartar sauce). Nice setting in the courtyard or indoor dining room with lots of big windows. Right in the heart of the village. Friendly staff. Our group enjoyed lunch here one... More

Don't expect anything that resembles food. Enough said. In their attempt to put fancy items on the menu, they seem to have forgotten that hungry people want food they can recognize. This isn't the south of France....

Back to Dajio's again this season. Had a delicious fresh fish dinner with roasted potatoes and their trademark coleslaw. After our meal we were treated to the local 80's band, Ray Gun Ruby. The service was friendly and timely. Dajio's is always a favorite when we visit Ocracoke Island.

We stopped here for our first breakfast on the island. I had the Creme Brulee french toast and my husband had caramelized apple pancakes. Both came with peppered bacon, and were delicious. It was pricy, but well worth it.
