When we visited we got scallops and tuna. The tuna was caught that day, and it was delicious! The scallops were also great. The owner was very friendly, the shop was well kept. We will be back, we love Hatteras, and this will be on our list of places to go next year!

We bought seafood here three times in one week. Very fresh and it's a family run operation, from catching the fish to preparing dips and sauces. The woman who runs it is very welcoming. We bought steamed shrimp twice, plain and with Old Bay. Perfectly fresh and plump. You get cocktail sauce with it. Another day we bought tuna to... More

We come here year after year because you simply can't go wrong. Always the freshest seafood and Vicki is so helpful with recipes and menu ideas. The takeout is always excellent and totally perfect when you just can't bring yourself to leave the beach in time to cook!

Stopped here upon the recommendation of a local. I as with another couple and between the four of us we ordered crab dip, crab legs, crab cakes, seafood enchiladas, old bay steamed shrimp, and cajun steamed shrimp. The crab cakes were thiner than I expected and had little seasoning, but on the upside no bread filler either. The crab legs... More

Unbelievable service from an owner who truly cares. A year later she remembered us from our one visit the year before. Not only were we provided fresh seafood but great tips on how to prepare them. I will miss this place until next year because this type of service and trust in quality just doesn't exist anymore.

Harbor House Seafood has the best seafood, excellent service, friendly and wonderful owners, and not to mention the most delicious salads. The shrimp pasta salad, the three bean salad and the tuna salad are three of my personal favorites, but anything they make is great...Love this place!

Picked up some steamed shrimp on several occasions and some clams for steaming. Even on short notice Vicki had the shrimp peeled, cleaned and cooked for us to enjoy. Excellent!!!!
