If you want to go out and have some fun in a casual environment, eat some good food and drink as well then Riggins in a great choice. They have been in this location for over 30 years and that alone is an accomplishment. It's busy, loud and fast paced. Be sure to make a reservation during the season as... More

I come to Delray-Boynton area whenever I can and no matter what else is planned, a trip to Riggin's Crab House is always on the schedule. Sometimes the crabs are small, sometimes large, always very tasty and if you don't look outside you'll think you're in Baltimore. In addition to Maryland style crabs they have a host of other dishes... More

Only a slight exaggeration. Maryland is a lot closer to home than Boynton Beach Florida, but whenever I'm in South Florida I make it a point to visit Riggins. They make Maryland crabs the right way and they are always tasty and juicy (they will exchange if you do get a dry one). Their service is good, I've always found... More

This restaurant is located off I95 the Lantana exit. The restaurant is old and seedy looking. The Maryland crabs are their specialty. You get a mallet and bang away till you crack the crab. There is not much to eat but is was fun for the kids. The service lacks Much to be desired. This restaurant is a novelty and... More

After just landing we were starved and saw this place from the highway. After navigating the menu we decided to attempt the Maryland crabs and the lobster pie. The pie was fantastic and flavorful...the crabs were worth the work. We originally ordered the garlic, but after sitting there and reading some TA reviews we asked the waiter to switch to... More

i've had the crab legs and the seafood basket and fish and everything is prepared very well. I love their crab - you get plenty to eat. you'll make a mess cracking them but the crab is succulent. put Riggins on your list when you're in the area.

If you like crabs then this might be the place to go. But I wasn't impressed with their fish offerings. First I had the claim chowder new England style it was loaded with potatoes and few claims. The fish and chips I had was just ok. But not worth the price. They gave a lunch menu with lower prices but... More
