We ordered clam chowder that had no flavor and wasn’t warm.. The only good thing we’re the hush puppies! But for the price to only have good hush puppies is ridiculous. It was a big anniversary dinner and was a bomb.. Waitress tried her best but I would never recommend this place to anyone

Most of the crabs were cooked well. Some were over cooked but for the most part we enjoyed them. Our server was very nice but she was very slow. There were a few times we had to wait over 15 mins for new crabs. Also waited 20 mins for her to come with the check. Our buckets sat full for a while. Finally, a busser came over to empty them after multiple employees walked by and saw our towering buckets. I don’t know if our sever was new but she was struggling. She only had 3 table but all, including us, seemed to be waiting a while.

First they give you fried chicken, hush puppies with powdered sugar on top, and a cup of soup. Afterwards then the fun begins the waiter brings out a tray of crabs and corn on the cob. A bucket is placed on the table for your waste etc. Oh before I forget they have signature drinks and a nice selection of beer! You really can’t beat their prices and for the most part their food is pretty good. I would definitely come back for another treat! It was well worth the four hour drive when it should have only taken three.

However we arrived with a reservation at 8:45 and while the staff was already cleaning up it was inexcusable that we were seated by 2 large and smelly garbage cans. There were plenty of other options. I can only guess that since those tables had already been cleaned they were not available seating. Please note I paid as much for our meals as earlier arrivals so should have been able to expect that ANY table in the place was an option. My son moved them further from our table but from my vantage point those garbage cans were my view - not pleasant. If they are taking late reservations then it is not acceptable to relegate anyone to sitting and eating by trash cans!

Ayce are the SMALL crabs. They bring you 3 at a time so you may be waiting which wastes your time thus u eat less crabs. They over do it w the old bay too.

Each time they tore a piece it was very loud and disruptive. The food was very overpriced; I don’t expect a $30 entree to come with pre-packaged butter (not real butter BTW), sour cream and salad dressing. Additionally, they did not bring our food to all members of our party at the same, leaving some of us to wait uncomfortably for others to receive their food. Overall, we were very disappointed.

We chose this after deliberating over buying jumbos by the dozen. We were not disappointed. The crabs had a lot of meat and were well seasoned. The service was fast and friendly. The peach whiskey drink was really good. You're outside on the strip, so there will be noise, but it didn't bother us.

I like sitting upstairs. Though the sun was on half our table which was uncomfortable. My family enjoyed their meals. My crab cake didn't have lump crab meat and it had a couple of shells in it which is really unpleasant.

We arrived 15 minutes early and they sat us promptly.I had an 8 oz. chargrilled steak with a baked potato and corn. It was very good.My wife enjoyed crab soup and a crabcakes. Service was very good. Would go back.

When the bill came they charged me for the baked potato ($3) which I did eat - no problem, and $3 for a container of applesauce that was the little plastic cup other restaurants send salad dressing home in with takeout orders. I asked the waitress if there was a mistake and she said no. I was OUTRAGED! I got back to the condo donated our Higgins shirts and ball caps to GoodWill and after many, many years of eating there 2X every year and recommending it to all our friends who vacay in OC, will NEVER return to this establishment again.

I took a couple of days off from work and took my teenage daughter to the beach. We ordered the all you can eat crabs. They were juicy and quite meaty. Some of the best Blue Crabs one could ever have. Lucas was our server and he was on top of it. I left with the impression that he always has his A game on. Live music, cold beer and friendly people. It truly was one of the better dining experiences I’ve had at the shore.

Overall it was good but I had no idea the crabs would come out absolutely smothered in old bay. I assume that’s a Maryland thing (was just there visiting for the weekend from another state). I got the bottomless crabs so I didn’t have the heart to send it back even though I hate old bay. We also weren’t allowed to switch tables to one in the shade (it was about 95 degrees and we were in the sun) even though we were only one of about 5 tables sitting out of about 20.
