Delicious and very friendly staff! The owner/chef came out to see if we enjoyed our meal which was an added touch of class to this already classy piece of heaven! Had amazing specials for breakfast and different choices!

I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and it was the best I have ever ordered--it had two types of fresh cheese, smoked bacon and a homemade relish that should be bottled and sold in grocery stores. Our server, Denise, was exceptional and had an in-depth knowledge of the menu.

We tried Daijo's for breakfast one morning of vacation although free Continental breakfast was offered at our hotel. The menu had some delightful sounding dishes. I had Creme Brule French Toast and fruit. My husband had Caramelized Apple pancakes and a biscuit. The waiter was very kind and brought our drinks quickly, but the kitchen was a bit slow with...

We were a party of 7, including children, and everyone enjoyed their meal. Our waitress Jen (JB!) was great! My mom really wanted a crab cake sandwich and the chef accommodated it even though it wasn't on the menu! Thank you!

Just spent lovely weekend on Ocracoke and our experiences at Dajio were a big part of it. We had dinner on Friday night and enjoyed the rockfish special -- fresh and delicious flavors! Can't say enough about the grilled cheese I had for lunch on Saturday -- it is an old favorite on the menu, and the bacon and lime... More

Unfortunately the evening turned nasty with lots of thunder and lightning, causing some power outages. However though the server was very good the food not so good, bland and somewhat pricey. Understand that there is a new chef so maybe there is a learning curve but that was our experience.

Great sandwiches! The fried green tomato pimento cheese bacon was phenomenal, my son had the grilled cheese chutney sandwich and said it was the best ever grilled cheese he's ever had.

My wife and I ate here last night. WOW. I had the Crab mac and cheese (delicious...) however my wife's plate was memorable, she had the largest shrimp I had ever seen in my life. The shrimp tempura plate was quite the hit. Worth the price, and I'm pretty cheap usually but this was part of a special trip.

Thank Steven A
