Our waitress was awesome! The crabs were hit and miss. Some were really full and other it was like the meat cooked out of them. We did go later in the evening prior to close, so who knows, maybe the crabs are better earlier.

When we arrived they had no knowledge of our Open Table reservation. They seated us near the kitchen door/server bar area where workers were congregating. If the crabs we purchased were Large, I would hate to see how small the small all you can eats would be! We went because it was within walking distance to where we were staying and are supposed to have the best crabs in town. I would not go again and mark as a "tourist trap". Positive note: our server was wonderful!!!

Chicken on salad was inedible rubbery and hard. Prices for lunch explain why it was empty on Fourth ofJuly weekend. Many many better choices in OC even on main road. Don't be taken in by it being a rare Open Table listing in OC, their computer doesn't work.

Pretty good MD seafood. Had the soft shell crab sandwich with coleslaw. Wish they had the option to put it on something other than plain old white bread, but that's ok. The creamsicle frozen cocktail barely had any vodka in it in my opinion and could use a bit more of an orange flavor in the mix. Service was quick and the server was pleasant.

Solid choice for a group of 9 people. The food was good and we had plenty of leftovers. We were seated outside so it got kind of chilly. It's right next to the main road so the honking and traffic can be loud.

I enjoyed the crab cake sandwich but my friend got a seafood platter and it was terrible. The fish of the day specifically was indistinguishable. Wouldn't recommend.

We visit Ocean City every October, and we always fit in a visit to Higgins. The service is friendly and timely, and we enjoy the food. Crab feasters will like the crabs, and the sides are good too. We especially like the hush puppies and the corn on the cob.

Ordering tip: If you're not going to eat more than half a dozen crabs or so, it'll probably cost less if you order crabs by the dozen instead of one of the all-you-can-eat offerings.
