Dajio

305 Irvin Garrish Highway, Ocracoke
(252) 928-7119

Dajio is nestled in the trees down in Ocracoke's waterfront village. Husband and wife team Doug and Judy Eifert prepare succulent plates of locally caught fish, shrimp and oysters. They bring to the table a fusion of delicious, innovative and satisfying dishes from the surrounding sea, farms, breweries and vineyards. Chef Doug fires up the wood-burning brick oven to roast organic whole chickens and to make homemade breads and artisan flatbread pizzas with seasonal topping combinations. The menu includes extensive gluten-free and vegetarian options. Bring in your catch and they will cook it for you. This fun Outer Banks restaurant is open seasonally serving brunch, lunch, shrimp hour and dinner. Dine in the air-conditioned interior or dine alfresco on the jasmine-covered patio and enjoy lively music on many summer nights.
