Celebrating its tenth season now on the island, Dajio showcases the best of Ocracoke’s local ingredients, artisans and musicians. The menu changes with the seasons to bring guests the finest ingredients from sea, farm or garden, at the peak of freshness. Enjoy the air-conditioned interior or alfresco dining on the jasmine-covered patio and lively music at the Dajio bar many summer nights. The menu includes extensive gluten-free and vegetarian options. Bring in your catch and they will cook it for you. At Dajio, we believe that the most memorable meals and evenings start from scratch.
