So happy for Higgins to be open again. The food was excellent as always, and although it felt a little strange to be so spread apart from other diners, it is of course necessary.

This was my first time to go to a nice restaurant since my wife of 49 years passed away in April. This was a restaurant we went to many times before covid and it has maintained it high standards for food, service and ambiance. Thank you Higgins for making my 72nd birthday a nice one to remember.

Higgins has had to remove some seating in the bar area, but as far as food, drinks, overall quality, it is still my favorite place to eat.

With downtown business destroyed by the Mayor's policies, parking is actually quite easy.

Make a reservation. Higgins still the best place in town.

Consistent preparation and delivery of very high quality farm to fork food is the hallmark of Higgins. The wine and beer selection is extraordinary. The mixed drinks pours are generous. Portland has many choices of restaurants but this place is not to be missed. With no disappointments it has been my go-to-special-occasions-place since 1994.

Ordered a salmon burger. Didn’t like toasted bread. Would have preferred a bun. Salad needed more dressing. Do you make potato salad?

We went to Higgins Piggins for an early Sunday lunch for my daughters birthday. The service and our server were excellent. The day was a little cool, so would have been nice if heaters would have been on, but we lived thru it and had a very pleasant lunch. Kind of wished that they would have presented a birthday cookie of something since they do ask what the occasion is on your reservation. but overall the food was wonderful, service excellent, and hour and a half that we spent there were a great way to celebrate the day!

I had the mushroom tart, which was delicious but skimpy for the price. For a dollar more I could have had a big salad and that Giant delicious looking burger.

We dined at Higgins Piggins on an evening with questionable weather in the forecast. We dressed for rain showers but were seated under a large, lovely umbrella and feasted on some of the finest fare in Portland. Way to go casual, Higgins. Beautifully done!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Piggins on September 21st. We both had the vegan corn soup, which was lightly spiced and tasty. I had the salmon patty on brioche bread that was excellent. My husband was very pleased with the turkey schnitzel on a bun. The restaurant was careful to follow the CDC guidelines of servers wearing masks, having good spacing between tables, sanitizing the tables and chairs between customers and providing liquid sanitizer for customers. We look forward to returning for future lunches.
