If you like crabs then this might be the place to go. But I wasn't impressed with their fish offerings. First I had the claim chowder new England style it was loaded with potatoes and few claims. The fish and chips I had was just ok. But not worth the price. They gave a lunch menu with lower prices but... More

Each year I get dragged back to Riggins by Virginia natives who want blue crab. That's fine if the other food was any good. Unfortunately, it isn't. Crab soup was mediocre at best and fish and chips was just horrible. The restaurant itself is tacky and as cheap as it gets. Asked the server who brought my food for some... More

I wrote a review back in 2013 and gave this restaurant excellent ratings. Was there a few days ago with my wife and son for a birthday meal. This was not the same level of service or food as was the case in my last review. On my last visit, I loved the fried cod with slaw and fries. Ordered... More

We recently had a great dinner here. If you are a crab lover this is the place to go. They feature various types of crabs plus other seafood in so many different ways. The service was attentive. We had time to visit with friends while not feeling we were being rushed thru our meal. A place to return to next... More

This is a fun place to roll up your shirt sleeves, put on that apron and dive in with your mallets. Do not expect high dining, but the evening may turn out to be fun and quite tasty.

We went to Riggin's last week and had a wonderful experience. Service was great -- the staff seemed happy and worked well as a team, and the food was excellent. This is not a luxurious restaurant... it's your typical Florida eating establishment... serious food and clean surroundings. We ordered stone crab, shrimp cocktail (enormous) and Caesar salad. Everything was fabulous.... More

It is not romantic unless you are already romantic. The atmosphere is noisy, and family oriented. The Crabs are GREAT.. you go here for the crabs.. not the scenery, not the atmosphere and not the service although the service is pretty good. You go here because you want to simply dig into crabs, crabs and more crabs.

I have never had a bad meal there, but it is a really cool place to go eat Maryland Style Crabs. It is one of the places celebrities go when they are in town.
