We come to OC as a family every chance we get for vacation and drove past this place every time, but when we saw the new renovations we had to stop in this time. Our server Woody was amazing and greeted us with a smile and even took us to our table himself. The crabs were amazing and he kept... More

Our family visited twice during the month of June. Both times we enjoyed excellent crabs on the new rooftop deck. We prefer to eat by the dozen and were thrilled with the crabs on both occasions and at a fair price. The hushpuppies brought to our table were perfect. The recent renovations both inside and out are well done. There's... More

We were down here last weekend for an early visit to the beach. Higgins had been recommended by friends. My party of four had the All You Can eat crabs. They WERE delicious! They were only medium size in the All You Can eat deal but the taste was as good as any we have ever had. Even better was... More

We stopped at Higgins on our way out of Ocean City and are so glad we did. Woody was our waiter and he was awesome! We had never picked crabs before and asked him to just give us an overview, but he was genuinely excited and sat down to show us how. Food was great, service was excellent. Overall a... More

I am from out of town and came down to visit a few friends. I was not expecting much from the crab house, but it was truly great! Although I am no connoisseur of crabs, but I thought these were delicious. Although I have to say I feel the prices could be better matched with the size. However, OH MY... More

AYCE crabs were great! Came with chicken, fries, hush puppies & cole slaw. Great deal for the price. Pitchers of beer were slightly expensive but necessary!

We all are familiar with the all too common night out that is ruined by a rude service person. We were down for a softball game and it was just me and my daughter. I had a special request, because although my daughter loves crab, I'm allergic to shellfish. Taylor took care of us with a big smile throughout the... More

My family and I stopped in for a lovely dinner at Higgins during our vacation. The food was average, but our waitress Michelle really made our experience so much better. She was so kind and nice, I highly recommend going to Higgins just to get her as your waitress! Thanks Michelle!

We had the AYCE crabs! They were empty, small and taste was horrible. Reviews were mixed so I had hoped they just were exaggerated. First and last visit.
