YUM

The best shrimp I've ever had & they have deals for happy hour. I have been to the Outer Banks many times but never stopped in while in Ocracoke. Totally worth it & I'm sure if I'm in the area I will be back. Very laid back atmosphere and nice staff.

Intimate little restaurant. Waited in line, that's how popular it is. Very good food. I ordered crab mac n cheese and it was just that: comfort food.

I forgot I had dined here before. The service is slow and careless. We choose to dine inside to our penalty. We had to track our server down and ask for everything. She made us feel like we were a bother. It's a shame because the food wasn't bad.

We ate here one evening and had a great dinner! No complaints at all..everything was so good. Then, we got a pizza another night and it was TERRIBLE..nothing good about it. The 'fresh' mozzarella was AWFUL and hardly no toppings or cheese. Oh, and way too expensive for the pizza.

In a previous review of Dajio, we did not rate them very high, but felt that we may have caught them on an off night. One year later, we tried them again. It was well worth it. The fish tacos (flounder) was off the hook. The large salad with turkey actually had "real" turkey meat, not the processed stuff you... More

Menu selections were creative and delicious. Atmosphere (we were indoors) was quiet and calm. A welcome respite from the beach and outdoor activities.

I know it's off season. I know it was later in the evening. I know it's NOT the main restaurant but just the pizza addition. But, oh lord, it was truly a terrible pizza. Undercooked, with terrible cheese and almost served lukewarm. C'mon guys. You can do better. I know you can.

Was a good meal - had the fresh fish, which was very good. Nothing over the top, but a very nice meal on the island. I'd go again.

This place was recommended by my sister-in-law and she did not steer us wrong. The food was excellent along with the service. We will be back to try other items on the menu.
