Can't go wrong buying fresh seafood here. Always tastes great. Vicky always has great suggestions for how to cook your purchase. She has high standards for what seafood she keeps to sell. Not a huge selection, so if you are ok with the catch of the day this is the place to go. It does not smell like cleaning chemicals... More

Small shop that has what's fresh that day. The people before us snagged the last of the black bass which they had cooked onsite and then devoured at a small table outside. They will also looked like they did a great job with the scallops. The owner Vicki was extremely helpful, gave us instructions as well as a clove of... More

Great, fresh seafood. Some menus items can be prepared there for you, others ready to take home and do yourself. Vicki has to be one of the nicest people on the island. My wife and I split one seafood enchilada. It lived up to its reviews.

Every year while vacationing in Hatteras, NC we are stopping by in this tiny but spotless place. The owner - Vicki is super nice, always smiling. The seafood is fresh and delicious. This year, Vicki had her daughter in the store to help her out - talented young lady and very pleasant to be around. We really love this place... More

Year after year we come back to Harbor House and Vicki Harrison's hospitality. Here you find the freshest seafood available in combination with carefully crafted side and specialty dishes Vicki prepares with wonderful ingredients. This year, along with beautiful Snowy Grouper and Grey Tilefish, we had her seared scallops and savory bean salad. We always add steamed NC shrimp that... More

I love this place because they sell fresh local seafood. Their steamed shrimp is just amazing, probably the best I ever had. The owner is a very kind lady who will be very happy to answer your questions and explain what are the best options available that day. I have been to this place a few times and always left... More

We went into Harbor House to purchase the makings of a low country boil. We were planning on feeding 6 people, and we were not sure who would like what, so this seemed like a great idea to please everyone. The young lady who helped us answered all our questions, gave suggestions, cooking instructions, and was a pleasure to work... More

After 30 some years of coming to Hatteras Village, we believe we have discovered one of the best hidden gems in the area. Harbor House Seafood is not just a seafood store, it is a delightful carry out. Ms. Vikki is very happy to please anyones appetite. A menu is posted with many seafood items. But, the best thing is...
