We had been to Higgins before in our visits to the Delaware beaches, so we headed there again on our latest visit to Ocean City. It was a quiet overcast day with not so many people in the restaurant. The food was fine. The best was the crab soup. We ordered just a half dozen crabs as they were expensive,... More

This evening was our first visit to this restaurant. Ample seating for couples and large groups. Our server, Billy, was excellent! Asked if we could share a meal since it was later in the evening and didn't want much....not a problem! We decided on the seafood platter and ordered it broiled. Came with 2 sides (we had salads). Oh I... More

Reading all the adds in the local paper we decided to give Higgins's Crab House North a try. Great greeting once you walked in. Ordered a half bushel of #1's. (43... More

I went to Higgins on Saturday, 08/20/16. Had the worst experience ever. The crabs were old, tasteless and I had to send back to the kitchen three times. My friend ordered the Seafood Platter and everything on the platter was frozen, then fried. Nothing was fresh seafood. All frozen. I have been going to Higgins for many, many years and... More

We had some corn on the cob with it. Our waiter was friendly and observant - bringing us clean buckets for our... More
