Nice meal and even nicer owner

My wife and I enjoyed a laid back dinner at a table on the porch of this fish market. The owner made us broiled scallops, salad and her famous enchiladas. This is a fish market and not a restaurant. You can call and order a meal to be prepared to take home, but there is one table and 2 chairs... read more

We have been making an annual pilgrimage to Cape Hatteras for several years. Our vacations here are never complete without one or more visits to Vicki and her family-operated Harbor House Seafood. Without a doubt Vicki is the friendliest, most gracious person I have ever encountered as a customer. She goes well out of her way to accommodate special requests,... More

This was a shinry gem on a rainy day. Vicky was one of the sweetest ladies I have encountered behind a cash register. She had our order ready when we arrived and had made us a cooler for our trip home. The food was amazing! Perfect cooked shrimp with an amazing sauce. Can't wait to get back.

If you are looking for great seafood in Hatteras Village, you could take your pick of many restaurants, but if you are truly looking for the best seafood in town, stop by Harbor House Seafood Market. I am not exactly what you would call "Seafood Savvy" which is why I like to go to Harbor House. Vicki, the owner, will... More

On our second visit to the Outer Banks we took again the chance of getting some real fresh shrimps and scallops at this shop. We will be back soon.

The food we had from Harbor House ended up being one of the high points of our week. We bought sheepshead (white, flaky, sweet tasting fish) to cook two nights, and it was terrific, pristinely fresh. On another night, we had cajun steamed shrimp, which was also wonderful, along with cole slaw that Vicki whipped up between customers. Vicki is... More

I've been to Hatteras many times, but never stopped into Harbor House. I read some great reviews so I thought I would give it a try. All I can say, is that Vicki (the owner) made our first night so wonderful after our bad trip getting to the island. Our trip normally takes 6.5 hours and this one took 8.5... More
