They did a great job with setting up the outdoor dining for social distancing, however we unfortunately got the table right where people are usually walking up to check in/ wait, so we had some people sitting around us while we were trying to eat. It was also incredibly windy tonight which wasn’t anyone’s fault but it would’ve been better had we been up on the crab deck. Service was awesome too! Will definitely be back, just hopefully not at that same table!

The platter had a hard piece of fish, the shrimp tasted frozen, the crabcake tasted like fake crab meat and the calamari were waay to small with only a fried taste, no flavor. We didn't even finish our meal. I will never eat there again.

Everyone's food was cold and everything was so expensive considering the poor quality. Sadly, we'll have to find another crab place when we come back to OC, MD.

Couldn’t even get more food because they give so much! Not sure we needed the fried chicken, fries or corn since we concentrated on eating all of our crab legs and shrimp. Crabs were very sweet as well.

We had a reservation for 12 p.m. but, when we arrived it was closed with a sign saying it would not be open until 2:30 p.m. It was quite disappointing as it was to be a special treat for my daughter.

All you can eat crab legs is NOT all you can eat. There is a charge for reorders that they claim is due to the price of crab legs. Was told the legs cost them $9 - and they sell reorders for $9.50. The price of the all you can eat is $49.99 - so they are making $40 on the AYCE?!?!??!? Wife got fish and chips - 1 piece of fish?!?!? I got the crab cakes $30 for 2 small crab cakes?!?!? Not sure if I will return??!!?!?

They were low quality- very light. I would not recommend this restaurant. It’s was very dirty and the bathroom’s had a putrid odor. Many better choices in OC.

No paper towels given, we had to ask. Missing a few food items that we had to ask for.

No issues with our Open Table reservations and we were seated right away. Our server came over to the table almost immediately after we were seated and brought out complimentary hush puppies for the table. Perfect for my hungry toddler to much on before dinner came. After we ordered, our meals came out quickly. All of the food was delicious (crab imperial, snow crab legs, charbroiled oysters, crabby burger), the crabcake was good but not the best we've ever had. It was a bit warm and noisy inside. Nice play area out front for kids. Would come here again.

We were pleased that there was a lot of parking available at the north Ocean City location. Our party of 8 was seated within minutes of our reservation time. None of us is a crab eater. We planned on Higgins because of its extensive menu of other things and an excellent children's menu.

I chose from the kids menu and the waiter wouldn't allow my order. believe me we were spending money eating there. I had to pick a steak sandwich which was aweful and only a few dollars more than what I could eat from a kids menu. I'm never going back and I'm sharing my story too others. there are plenty of places to have crabs and it wont be at higgins for us.

We ordered large and they were small and light with little flavor. The steamed shrimp and clams were also just fair. We won’t rush back.

A better explanation if you don't want the all you can eat but want a full platter is there a difference in price. A little more attentiveness and refilling drinks not after your done with appetizers and entrees do you ask me if I want another beer

Our waitress Julie even made it a great night for my 3 year old nephew! Highly recommend! They have playground to keep the kids happy and lots of drinks (to go) to make the adults happy! Do recommend handing out handi-wipes after messy crabs. That’s the only negative thing I have to share- they didn’t offer any.

This time was very disappointing. I had a reservation for 10 and we were promptly seated. A portion of our table was extremely close to an outside door, and with a person sitting there, the waiters had to bump into the person every time they went in and out. Also, every time the door was opened, hot air and flies came in and were biting us. The table set-up was poor and unacceptable and there was no where we could be moved to. We ordered our drinks and crabs, and it took a very long time to get the crabs. I went and found someone so they could check on the order. Some of us ordered large crabs by the dozen to share, and another 4 people ordered all you can eat. The crabs by the dozen finally came, but it took much longer for the all you can eat to come- they should have been delivered at the same time. The all you can eat crabs were over salted and it ruined the flavor. They don't use Old Bay, they use another brand which isn't as good. The last dozen of all you can eat were so small, they looked illegal. Several members of our party said they would never go back after this experience. Higgins, what's happening- higher prices, mediocre service and over spiced crabs?!

It’s fun and seaworthy decorations add to your experience. The staff is very friendly and even when the placed is packed they make sure your drinks are filled and you have everything you want. We totally recommend!!!!!!!

Then they proceeded to take us to a table for 2 when we clearly pointed out that it was for 4, as stated in the reservation. Food took over an hour and a half even when the place was almost empty at 6 pm. Good news, food was very good, but would think before going back.

We ordered a steamer bucket, a fried platter, oysters on the half shell, and a kid's meal. The steamer bucket came out cold. Of the 4 blue crabs, 2 were cooked dead and therefore had a foul taste. The best thing was the crab cake. That was worth the money. The rest wasn't.
