“best seafood market in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

there are other seafood markets...but haag and sons has consistently good, fresh fish, shellfish, and shrimp. we've purchased fish, scallops, shrimp to cook at home and have not been disappointed. the staff is accommodating as well as patient and makes recommendations when asked. the place to go for your seafood needs!

“Fresh, fresh, fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We stopped at the Haag and Sons Seafood market on a Sunday afternoon to pack our coolers with fresh fish to take home. The prices were quite reasonable and there was a large selection of "cut to order" fish. We have already eaten some of the Wahoo and it was delicious. If I ever get back to Oak Island you can be sure I will bring a larger cooler and bring back more fish than I did this past time.

“The Best Seafood Market!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

There are several fish markets on Oak Island and Southport, but Haag and Sons is by far the best. The fish is incredibly fresh. You can watch them filet your fish, Its not sitting already prepared in a display case. The staff is courteous and very helpful great for describing and recommending from the list of the day's catch.
Look for the specials on a separate board....We tried Hog Fish which had been spear caught by a local fisherman that day and it was delicious.
Also, if you go later in the day popular types of fish may be sold out, so get there early.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

There's a reason this place has been in business forever. The seafood is fresh & the staff super friendly, helpful, and they definitely know their stuff. Can't beat it! I can't wait to buy from them again next year!

“The FRESHEST local fish around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

If you find yourself on Oak Island, or close enough, and want to get fish as fresh as if you just caught it, this is the place to be. What is available will depend upon what was just locally caught so don't go in looking for Tilapia ( gag). Hogfish, yellow eye snapper, grouper of all kinds, shrimp, clams, something for everyone. Be flexible when going in as you never know what might have just been pulled out the water. When oysters are in season ( oct - march) you are in for a real treat. All seafood is cut to order. You can ask to see the fish before they cut it for you. Look at the gills, the eyes, and you will see nothing but freshness looking back at you. All you have to decide is which type of seafood and how to cook it.
