Great seafood and Service!!!

We bought shrimp here along with homemade crab dip. The crab dip was fantastic!!! we went back before heading home and bought more to bring home. They offer complimentary herbs which make your seafood that much better! Super nice owner who offered so many tips! Will go back for sure!

We are newbies to vacationing in Hatteras & had no idea where to go to get fresh seafood to cook at home. We just blindly picked Harbor House. We had no idea how wonderful it would be. We ended up buying shrimp, crab cakes, hush puppies etc. 3 times this week to prepare ourselves. We would come off the beach... More

We drove down from Rodanthe for the day to visit the Cape Hatteras lighthouse and stopped by to pick up a late lunch at Harbor House based on the TripAdvisor ratings. We were not disappointed! We had steamed shrimp and clams as well as the shrimp and crab enchilada and chimichanga and crab dip. All were fantastic - even our... More

We came here to buy seafood and were able to meet the wonderful Vicky. She gave us some insight as to how state legislation has basically killed commercial fishing in the sound. We bought some wonderful scallops and shrimp for dinner as well as some clam chowder and the best smoked salmon I have ever eaten. Do drop in. She... More

Food was perfectly steamed. Staff was incredibly kind!! Our family enjoyed dinner so much we went back again. We RARELY rate (unless we really enjoy or really don't....so that is an endorsement along with the fact we almost never repeat twice in the same week).

My wife and I wanted a nice picnic dinner on the beach. We heard about Harbor House and decided to give it a try. What a great surprise! We stopped in early afternoon and described generally what we had in mind. We came back later around 6 to pick up our dinner and Vicki had gone OVER THE TOP to... 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... 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
