Dajio is nestled 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 make homemade breads, artisan flatbread pizzas with seasonal, unique topping combinations and roast organic whole chickens. This fun Outer Banks restaurant is open seasonally serving breakfast, lunch, shrimp hour and dinner. 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.
