Lovely breezes

The food was very good although the wait staff was a little confused about whose table was whose. Beautiful shady, breezy spot, but the parking isn't great.

They serve all three meals each day and they do all well. Moderately priced with an especially filling breakfast. We ate here before hitting the beach. Grilled pizza is also delicious. We took some home to our rental one evening.

Husband and I visited for early dinner. Every table was full, so we thought that a good sign. Unfortunately, that meant it was also incredibly loud. Service was slow, and the waitress seemed apathetic, making no recommendations. However, we did appreciate the willingness of the kitchen to make slight accommodations to the menu. The crab and shrimp appetizer dip was... More

We ate here for breakfast and the service and food were awesome! Our waitress was super friendly, and she gave us suggestions on what to do on the island. Also, when she found out we lived only a few hours away, she told us about other things that happen on the island year round (Pirate parties at Halloween etc..). She... More

We ate our last meal here at Dajios before catching the ferry to go back home. Our waitress recommended the Fried Green Tomato sandwich which we found to be outstanding. Definitely would eat here again. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding.

It was a rainy day in Ocracoke. The restaurant is decorated pleasant. The staff is fantastic. They know the menu inside out!! The fish taco was excellent. The slaw was light and fresh. Thumbs up for Dajio!!

This restaurant is air conditioned and the food was great! Two very important things you need at the beach especially when you are so hot. I was there with a large group of 13 and they accommodated us for dinner one night, they knew we had a sunset cruise booked and was able to serve us and get us out... More

Our favorite place on Ocracoke! Whether you are dressed up and dining in or outside on the patio the ambiance is so relaxing. They have offer pizza from a wood fired oven... the pizza is expensive but delicious. The open bar area is a great place to gather.

very friendly, as we came in about 2.30 for late lunch. they provided extra ceasar salad, when we only asked to share one. then we did not like peppers in vegetables, and they made special veggies for us - local fresh seafood was excellent!
