About
At Harbor House you are not just buying from a fishmonger: you are buying from a fishing family. We source our seafood from boats that we have fished alongside for decades. This means we know their fishing practices and their quality. We purchase seafood from fishermen who are just as committed to quality and sustainability as we are.

We've been coming to Harbor House for years, and Vickie ALWAYS takes exceptional care of her customers! Seafood is always fresh and delicious, she and her daughter Allanah make amazing treats, Vickie offers suggestions for prep if you're interested (all have been spot on), provides...butter/tartar sauce/seasoning/etc. for take home, and each year there's always some new twist she's added to keep things interesting. Of all the establishments we've frequented over the years throughout our travels, this is one we can't imagine not being a constant 5/5 for everyone who walks through the door. Yes, it's just THAT consistently outstanding.More

We came to get frozen crabs because the store was recommended by our host. While the lady at the counter was very nice and helpful, the crabs we purchased were a disappointment. Two clusters of frozen crab legs, besides being very expensive, were super salty...that there was no fresh taste at all. All we can taste was salt.More

Harbor House Seafood is the best! The shrimp was so fresh and tasted amazing and The clams were so sweet! Vickie gave us horseradish that she prepares… it pack a punch but tastes so much better than any you can buy at the grocery store....Make sure you get her homemade blue crab dip and homemade shrimp and crab enchiladas. The jalapeño cream sauce for the enchiladas is so delicious I could drink it.. we’re already looking forward to next year!More

Read the reviews, bought a pound of shrimp, cleaned them, and put them on the grill. Was very happy when I realized that they were packed in ice for the trip home. Nice touch! First class operation!

Saw reviews online and wanted some seafood. Went there and rang bell, as sign instructed, no one came to neither open window. No service, so we left. Looked online later and they were out of almost everything anyway.More

Best tasting shrimp I can recall ever eating. Steamer pot was delicious and the prices are fair. Vicki strives to take care of her customers. They have direct access to the best fishermen with the highest quality fish and they know how to pick the...finest. We will be visiting every time we stay on Hatteras Island. Note: this is a seafood market, Vicki sells the freshest and best seafood you will find. They sell steamer pots fully cooked and I believe steam other shell fish. Pick it up, take it home and you will enjoy.More

Got the shrimp and crab enchiladas which we heated at our house and were fantastic! Pick up...was easy and safe, she does a great job!

We had read reviews about their crab and shrimp enchiladas , so we were excited to meet Miss Vicki. We were in a motel room and not sure how we would cook them. When she found out about our dilemma, she jumped right in and...said she would cook them , with her special white sauce, and they would be ready for us to pick up to enjoy. They were wonderful, and we ate all of it. We also bought some fresh tuna, which we enjoyed with crackers as an appetizer. We can't say enough about her willingness to help us enjoy a very special meal. It was one of our favorite Outer Banks meals and memories. Be sure to treat yourself to this local experience!More

Hardshells were conspicuously absent from the Outer Banks while I was there this year. I usually buy a bunch for a boil. On the bright side, jumbo shrimp were in abundance, which is unusual for the area.
