“Everything was spot on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This place was recommended to us by the front desk clerk and we were not disappointed. The service was fast and friendly, the food came flying out of the kitchen and was hot and tasty. Reasonable prices and portions big enough to split.

“Creme Brule French Toast and Other Delights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

A friend of ours here in the Denver area referred us to Dajio, her favorite restaurant in Ocracoke, and set us up with a gift certificate for dinner and a bottle of wine. In looking at their breakfast menu online, I was intrigued by the creme brule french toast which I had never had the opportunity to experience. One of our first stops on our week in Ocracoke was for breakfast at Dajio and the couple traveling with us decided to try the same menu item. Needless to say, we all returned for three more breakfasts consisting of creme brule French toast and bacon. Oh, there is nothing like indulging in something new while on vacation!

Our dinner experience was as positive as breakfast. We ate in the dining room with our traveling friends and then my wife and I returned alone later in the week and dined on the patio. The food was delicious and the service was friendly, responsive and professional. The menu is excellent and the variety of offerings should satisfy just about anyone.

There are several dining options on Ocracoke Island, and Dajio is one that I would recommend for those who are looking for delightful food and great service.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This is in a good location near the harbour. It has a separate bar that stayed open longer than most of the other places nearby in October and it is possible to eat in or out-doors. The menu has plenty of choice and the fish and seafood were excellent on both nights we ate there. Friendly service.

“Awesome service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Stopped for dinner. We had a light dinner. The service was friendly and quick. The food was delicious. Despite the chilly evening, we ate out on the patio. The ambiance was a perfect addition to the meal.

“Tasty Ceviche in a Nice Patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stopped for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Delicious, spicy, shrimp burger tuna ceviche, shrimp burger and shrimp wrap. Efficient, friendly service, and a cozy bar. Try the bar's ring toss. Certainly worth a stop.
