The number of options for seafood dining in Ocean City is dizzying, so we chose Higgins because it was an easy walk from our hotel (the Hilton) and we were quite pleased with our meal. The restaurant is typical crab shack chic, fairly casual and basic with some nice accent decoration. The price was average for its type, with the... More

We just spent Thanksgiving weekend in Ocean City. On Saturday afternoon we went to Higgins Crab House. We got the A.Y.C.E. deal that include crabs, corn and fries. The crabs were just OK but, what can you expect for this time of the year ? The chicken was awesome ! What I really wanted to comment on was the service... More

From a recent trip to O.C., we are moved to write only 2 reviews: One because the place was so good, and one because it was so bad. Sorry to say, this review is the latter case. We are aware that this and other such establishments are best known for big batches of steamed crabs (which we have a lot... More

Higgins has been a staple of Ocean City trips for my husband and me for a few years now. We're never let down by the seafood menu; the all-you-can-eat crabs and corn option keeps us coming back, and we've even planned lodging around its location. On our last trip, we had the fried oyster sandwiches for lunch, then went back... More

A very casual place to eat. Don't look for any glitz. BUT, if you want all you can eat soft shell crab this is the place to go. We have tried the others, they don't compare. There is also a regular menu to order from for those who don't want the crab and also a choice of other "All-U-Can-Eat" dinners.... More

I have had crab here several times (softshell). Last time I did the ribs, shrimp and snow crab. All you can eat and that makes it worth the money.

Higgins was crowded when we arrived but a table opened up quickly. The waiters were friendly, attentive yet professional. The waiter was able to give us good recommendations about the menu. The crab soup was flavorful, filled with crab meat, the portion was large. Crabcakes were prepared well, had large chunks of crabmeat and very little filler. The vegetables were... More

We visited Ocean City in October which is out of the regular season. The result is that a lot of the regular places are closed or operate on limited days and hours—usually weekends. We ended up at Higgins after finding out the places closed or limited to buffets. We opted for a dozen medium steamed crabs instead of the all... More
