This place has come a long way since the Pelican days. We live in Metro Atlanta which has plenty of upscale restaurants to choose from. Dajio holds up well in the comparison. We had Crabcakes and the shrimp and scallops in garlic butter. Both dishes were subtly spiced to allow the seafood flavor to shine through - when the seafood is that fresh - there is no need to cover up the flavor. Crabcakes were nearly all crabmeat - just a little extra to hold them together. We will definitely return.

We were allowed to choose to set outside. Given one barely there candle to see by. All of the outside tables were dark - everybody asking for extra candles and bug spray. I was glad we couldn't see the food - if it looked as bad as it tasted that would have been really scary. I had clams - they were cold, dry and tasteless. Then garlic butter shrimp and scallops over lemon jasmine rice. It was all completely bland. It didn't taste like anything. No seasoning, no butter nothing. Husband had seafood stew which he was unable to eat. The shrimp were gooey - whole thing had a strange taste. Wait staff was really nice but that couldn't make up for the food

Love this eclectic place for it's grill cheese sandwich!!! It's a refined grown-up grill cheese to die for!!! :o) Yummy!!! My husband likes the burger. You can dine inside, on the screened porch or outside. The staff is delightful and the atmosphere is island chic. We have lunch at Dajio the first day we arrive on the island each time we come for vacation, we haven't had dinner or breakfast there yet.

THis is the coziest cutest place tucked underneath beautiful trees. Had lunch here and had the friendliest waiter. ( wished I could remember his name ) but he was a student at East Carolina University.Can't wait to go back to Ocracoke and to this restaurant.
