Best fish and more

I have been to all the fish mongers in Hatteras Village but the Harbor House has an edge by the name of Vicki. She is always friendly and not only has great fish, she will offer her home grown fresh herbs to go with the fish. I have stopped there for advice on how to best cook my catch and... read more

We always stop at HHSM, several times during our stay on the island. Please, know that they are not a sit down restaurant. But Vicki and her family will make sure that you get the most delicious seafood meals possible!! We buy all of our fresh seafood from her for our meals at home and have her cook us a... More

After climbing the Hatteras Lighthouse, we were headed to the Ocracoke Ferry when we decided we needed a lunch break. After checking reviews, we decided to try Harbor House Seafood. Even though this is not a sit-down restaurant, it is the BEST MEAL we have had on the Outer Banks. Vicki sent us down the street to the General Store... More

My brother-in-law has a vacation home in the village and recommended this place during our visit. In fact we ended up going there 3 times for take-out ...crab-cakes & hushpuppies (awesome) and cold boiled shrimp (very tasty). I waited outside while my wife went inside, but she said the people were very friendly. Come to find out one of them... More

A number of years ago we found this absolute gem of a seafood place. As some have noted it is not a traditional sit down eatery, but is actually much more! Vicki, along with daughter Alana do much of the cooking and manning the counter. The family uses this as a place to sell fish that son Graham catches. All... More

I must admit we drove quite a ways down to this little place due to all of the awesome reviews and the fact it is #1 on the restaurant rating list for TA. I wish there was a different catagory for it, seeing as it is not really a restaurant. The selection of ready-made food was small and therefore seemed... More

We met Vicky on our visit here and within minutes we felt like family. They only serve to go here, so we got some snow crab, shrimp and Dungeness and headed to a nearby picnic table and sat by the sound cracking, and eating crab. It was a perfect afternoon, and the seafood was fantastic. She even included some fresh... More

This is not a restaurant; it's a clean, nicely presented market for buying seafood to cook at home and some pre cooked meals/dinners/salads/sauces. Vicki's tuna salad is AH-MAZing! Her fish is caught fresh by her husband and son. I have known the family since I was very young - but this is an unsolicited review! I am extremely picky about... More

My husband and I visited Harbor House Seafood Market for a late lunch. Although there is no seating (we expected for there to be seating based on it being ranked #1 restaurant on Trip Advisor), we quickly realized we had stumbled upon a gem! We ordered the shrimp and crab enchiladas, which they were out of until dinner. Upon hearing... More
