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.

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

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!

Vicki at Harbor House Seafood Market was wonderful. Ordered steamed shrimp and took home fish and shrimp back to Ohio. She went out of her way to help me get the seafood ready for the trip back home. I left as a friend and cannot wait to go back again. Highly recommend her shrimp and crab chimichangas....amazing. Clean, excellent customer... More
