Convenient location to our place of stay. We sat on the roof deck (at the bar) and enjoyed drinks and all you can eat crabs, snow crabs, and shrimp, while watching the sunset. Very family friendly, with plenty of tables upstairs on the deck, or down in the main restaurant. They tape the brown paper to your table, hand out... More

Stopped in as my wife wanted crabcakes while we were vacationing in Ocean City, MD. We knew nothing of the place, but it looked like a decent place, and it didn't look too busy as we drove by so we pulled in...and boy are we glad we did! It was 6:00 on a Wednesday night in July and got a... More

what is so nice about Higgins all you can eat crab dinners is you can pick the sizes of the crabs which are different prices and you can choose different sides along with the crabs unlike other crab places. Our waiters name was Darren which couldn't of been more informative about the different items you could order to your taste,... More

Walked here from the boardwalk, sat outside on the balcony. We ordered the 2lbs of crab legs and were a little disappointed. It comes with a side salad that was not very good. The blue cheese dressing did not have blue cheese crumbles in it. I got a bucket of Rolling Rock which were pony bottles. The crab legs themselves... More

Loren was out server. She went above and beyond. And I mean Four Seasons Hotel type of service. We had four kids and a baby in our party. Loren was constantly checking in with us. She ensured every person lives their meal. When my 3-year old ran to the lobby, she paid for him to play the "claw" machine. In... More

We ordered a bushel of crabs and 3 lbs of shrimp to go. Had a group of 10 people eating and we all couldn't be more pleased - the food was great and sitting there picking and eating and drinking and talking...a wonderful time! Note: Half a bushel of crabs was enough for 10 people. We had a half bushel... More
