We enjoyed crab cakes and ribs. The food was delicious and the portions substantial. Our take out order was ready right on time. The restaurant is cute and comfortable for vacation treats.

Went with the family. My husband and I each got the all you can eat crabs and corn. We ordered a dozen crabs for our 13 and 14 year old kids. We had asked that they keep the kids' crabs plain (i.e. no Old Bay)...More

These were the largest crab clusters that I ever seen and they were great! This is the first time that I ever experienced corn on the cob boiled with the husk on. The corn was moist and tender with melted butter on the side

The crabs were good but everything else was just OK. The quality of their food is not worth the prices we paid. We will be trying a different crab place next time.

The crabs are good, but who can mess up crabs? The rest of the food was below average. Old corn on the cob, dry pasta, ho hum burger. They are under staffed for sure. Not worth the trip.

Went down to OC for my birthday weekend with my husband and family and we decided to try out Higgins as my sister and her husband have been there before. Most of us ordered the AYCE steamed crab and shrimp. Can you say Old Bay...More

I didn't get the shrimp appetizer. But I'm pretty positive that it would mean that the shrimp are the "Large" ones as opposed to the med or small ones. LOL I'm pretty sure it would mean 12 shrimp. But that's not sounding... More
