- On the Water & Outdoor Dining
Dajio uses the finest and freshest ingredients and pride ourselves on being a “scratch” kitchen. Our menus change seasonally to include local seafood from Farris & Julian, produce from our garden and Coastal Farmers, and quality ingredients sourced from as far as Vermont and Belize.
In conceiving Dajio, we wanted to create a focused, personal restaurant that would showcase the best of Ocracoke’s local ingredients, local artisans and local musicians. We revived an old, tired building in the heart of the village to feature a comfortable dining space with nightly entertainment, allowing both locals and tourists to enjoy an original, eclectic meal one night, or just cocktails and music the next. Our menu changes with the seasons to bring our guests the finest ingredients from sea, farm or backyard garden, at the peak of freshness. At Dajio, we believe that the most memorable meals and evenings start from scratch.
