We just love Harbor House seafood. Everything is caught by themselves. Vicki is very nice and always accommodating. They will also cook shrimp and clams for you and it's nice to have at the beach. They also have some prepared foods and good chowder.

We have been coming to Hatteras for the past few years and always visit Vicki at Harbor House for the best and freshest seafood. This is a family business; her husband fishes each day and sells what he catches. The steamed shrimp is perfect. We buy the fish of the day and self prepare. Vicki will make suggestions about preparation.... More

We stopped here to buy Scallops for our grill while vacationing in Hatteras. The scallops were freshly caught and delicious. We enjoyed every piece that was purchased. The owner waited on us and was very nice and patient. I noticed that you could also purchase seafood to be cooked while you wait. We took ours home for grilling. We found... More

First of all, despite the reviews this is not a restaurant, though you can purchase cooked seafood, sides, etc. to take home with you. The owner, Vicki, is a pure Southern delight of hospitality and will do whatever it takes to make you happy. I almost cried today when she didn't have any of her cold crab dip, but she... More

We went there looking for fresh fish but when we arrived we learned that they were not operating a full restaurant kitchen,rather they were just selling the freshest seafood around for people to cook themselves. We really wanted to try the fish that was fought that day but didn't have a way to cook at the hotel. The owner, Vicky,... More

Coming off the ferry we stopped here to order a pound of cajun. We waited while the shrimp was steaming; had a great time browsing the store. We took the shrimp to the nearest turn-off; enjoyed watching the wind surfers, had a great lunch! GOOD SHRIMP...

We stopped in just to check this out- and we were so thrilled to find such an amazing place! Vicky is wonderful- so personable and so talented! My 8 and 11 year old loved the stories her husband told them! The food she made us for a picnic was delicious!

Checked out the Trip Advisor reviews while staying in Hatteras and decided to try this out. NOT A DISAPPOINTMENT! We ended up getting 3 different meals here and really enjoyed each one. Well worth a try! Vickie cooked ours for us as we had limited capability at our condo, but you can do your own cooking if you prefer.

We loaded up on fresh shrimp, frozen clam chowder for the hotel room and fresh crab dip for our stay. The seafood fare was amazing and we really enjoyed talking with the owners. They were friendly and helpful...they know how much of everything you need and shared their experiences about the island. We will definitely return the next trip.
