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.

This place had to be the worst dinning experience yet. The crab was awed and the fritters were over fried in bad burnt oil. The place was not appealing and actually kinda dirty. It was so bad we had to send everything back and ended up leaving. Riggin's Crab House has been there forever and I just never thought of... More

On a recent trip to Florida we went in search of crab legs. I remember going to Riggins as a kid and so we gave it a try. I'm glad we did! It's great value for the quality and quantity that you get. The peel and eat shrimp are good, too. We will be back on our next trip!!

Thank BethGold
