I went here with my mom and grandmother for Mother's Day. We got the all you can eat crabs. The crabs were okay. But our waitress? Where's our waitress?

The food is filling and the hush puppies are unique and tasty! The crabby burger is made just the way u want it and the shrimp is so fresh and fried perfectly. The atmosphere is beachy and comfortable. There are lots of all u can eat options - didn't get to try any but think it's worth a 2nd visit... More

We enjoyed drink specials for Happy Hour on a pub crawl of the north end of town. The prices were fair

We found out they had oysters for $1 each and we ended up eating 2 doz per person and they were fresh, clean cut, and on ice.....very delicious. The waitress was very friendly and we had a great time talking to her. I'm going to come back for more oysters!!!! Great price.

We had been to Higgins before in our visits to the Delaware beaches, so we headed there again on our latest visit to Ocean City. It was a quiet overcast day with not so many people in the restaurant. The food was fine. The best was the crab soup. We ordered just a half dozen crabs as they were expensive,... More

This evening was our first visit to this restaurant. Ample seating for couples and large groups. Our server, Billy, was excellent! Asked if we could share a meal since it was later in the evening and didn't want much....not a problem! We decided on the seafood platter and ordered it broiled. Came with 2 sides (we had salads). Oh I... More
