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

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!!!!

Our family wanted to have a sampling of fresh Hatteras seafood. We went to see Vickie and were not disappointed! We cme home with three types of fish, hush puppies, clam chowder and scallops. She provided spices and instructions on how to cook the seafood. The meal was delicious! We returned the next night and brought home steamed shrimp (... More

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
