They where closed for the season. I feel a call or a message on open table saying this would have been helpful. We did find a place to eat dinner

Terrible crabs for all you can eat crabs.
Size was fine but mostly empty and mushy.
2nd time thus summer season. Won't go again for all you can eat crabs

Visiting Higgins is a tradition for our father/son back to school golf and crabs trip to the beach. Ask for the server Tony! He's kind and a true humble server.

DID THE ALL YOU CAN EAT CRAB AND CORN SPECIAL, CRABS WERE REALLY SMALL AND REALLY LIGHT, A LOT OF THEM WERE SOFT OR NOT GOOD AND WE WOULD GO THROUGH A TRAY OF THEM AND OUR SERVER WOULD TAKE A REALLY LONG TIME TO BRING US MORE....THE ONLY REDEEMING QUALITY, AND IT'S MINOR, IS THAT THEY HAD A PLAYGROUND THAT THE KIDS COULD PLAY ON WHILE WE SAT ON THE PORCH EATING.

The crabs were fresh, hot, perfectly seasoned and delicious. The steamed corn was cooked great too. The ribs fell of the bone. The steamed shrimp were easy to peel. Our server was Jack and he was amazing. Very attentive and engaging.

First time at Higgins and was not impressed. When my party of 8 got there, the tables were beginning to clear out. Our waiter was friendly and apologized for any wait time and said they had been busy. There were no problems until after this point. Our side dishes came out first, with a pretty long wait in between for our entrees. We also asked about the crabs we ordered as an appetizer but never got before the meal. The waiter said they were still cooking. We ended up cancelling them since we were already finished with dinner by then!! Not sure what happened, but overall the night was, in a word, disorganized.

We went to Higgins on our beach vacation, and our entire party ordered the AYCE crab feast. Three added ribs, and one just did the crabs and shrimp version. Our six year old got the kids crab and chicken meal and loved it. The food was delicious. The crabs were the perfect flavor and the surrounding items were also outstanding. The drink refills came slowly and stalled our ability to keep eating for a bit, but once we got refills we were able to keep going. 2-3 hours well spent with family!
