We had a wonder meal here. We wanted crabs and they certainly gave us what we wanted. We went in thinking we would get all you can eat, but the same as every other place the crabs are all small medium for that. We didn't want to work that hard so we ordered a dozen Jumbo and they were so... More

My husband and I and our four kids went here for dinner while on vacation. We arrived early, around 3pm, to avoid a large dinner crowd. Outdoor seating was full, so we chose to sit inside where it was pretty empty. We waited a full 10 minutes for a server to approach our table, though several walked by many times.... More

The third time was definitely that charm. We went to two other places before coming here.

When we walked in... More

Bad service, not clean, food wasn't good. My 5 year old grandson even said his hot dog didn't taste good. Stay away.

While everything was good, all you can eat means just that. No advertising (other than menu comment) had a 4.50 charge for each additional serving of Alaskan King Crab legs. This is not all you can eat. . .

North not so hot..go to 31 st location to enjoy..We got there early for Early Bird discount and we eat crabs often and can taste a good steamed crab..something missing at times with Higgins crabs.. Maybe later they would be better. Good menu basically a seafood place. Restaurant has nice atmosphere good waiters and normal crab prices..

Went for a small dinner and drinks with my bestie. This place was very nice. They have a roof top dining/bar area. Over looks the main strip of OCMD. Great atmosphere, good food and drinks. Easy place to sit and drink all night

Thank Jessie A
