"Dive in while we get the facts on Riggins Crabhouse. It's right down the road from Barton Elementary School. All the most marvelous seafood you could ever eat is right there at Riggins! The first thing I want to mention about Riggins is the beautiful décor. There are many aquariums and sea related features throughout the restaurant. When we are seated I notice something you don't see everyday ... paper table cloths! Why paper? This is because paper is not harmful to the environment of many sea animals such as crabs.

reviewJoni was our waitress, and she was very nice. The first thing she did was give us menus and take our drink order. I ordered the lemonade. When our drinks arrived at the table I took a sip of my lemonade and mmm ... it was the best lemonade ever! While I sat and looked at the menu I could hear the beautiful harmonies of music in the background. While looking at the menu I noticed an interesting thing. I saw the initials MP. This stands for market price. That means that the price of something, such as crabs, may be different from time to time - depending on how many crabs are available at the market. Now it is time for us to order our food. We order chicken nachos and crab stuffed mushrooms for appetizers. When the food arrived I dove right in and all can say is "mind blowing". Our main courses arrived and everything was totally delicious. There is one more thing that made Riggins even better… and that is the DESSERT! I ordered the chocolate fudge volcano cake which comes with ice cream & whipped cream around it. Mmm too good to be true!

After dessert I met the owner Danny. He gave me a tour of the kitchen. It was crowded, with a few cooks and lots of fish and crabs. He shared some interesting facts with me about crabs. I learned that live crabs should stay at 41 degrees or lower in the refrigerator. Male crabs have blue colored claws and female crabs have red claws that look like red nail polish! Crabs are very interesting and taste good!
I had such a great time at Riggins Crabhouse. You should go there and try their wonderful, wonderful food. Danny even gave me my own Riggins tee shirt! If you love crabs and seafood, then you'll love Riggins Crabhouse! It's the BEST!"

Absolutely my favorite south Florida restaurant! All of my kids buy me gift cards for Christmas, birthday, etc. so I can enjoy it as often as possible!

You guys really know how to steam crabs. We come from MD and feel right at home eating steamed crabs at Riggins!!

I am from Md. But have lived here for over 40 yrs. We have been going to another crab house here in Broward over the years but recently was told about your place. We came on Mother's Day and without a doubt, yours are the best crabs I've had since I left Md. Will not be returning to that "other" place any time soon.

I grew up across the bay from Annapolis, MD and your crabs are the best I have had in FL. I try to come at least once a month

We took my parents to dinner at Riggins and had the time of our lives! We loved their garlic crabs and crab cakes best.  We’ll be back again and again.

I’m from Maryland and like the fact that I can get the real deal when I visit my son here in Florida.  The fact that they use the male blue crabs is as authentic as it gets.
