The place is not that big to accommodate huge people waiting outside. Once you get your seat the excitemnt begins. We ordered a bucket of seafood, a sampler and clam chowder. The bucket came in a plastic bag! Yeah isn't that aomething? The flavors, the aroma man so good. The clam chowder was soo good too. I recommend this restaurant.... More

Although we had to wait for a while, almost one hour, we enjoyed eating at the crab pot. Once we sat down our food came quickly. We ordered the bucket which came in a huge plastic bag filled with crawfish, shrimp, A king crab leg, a few blue crab legs, and sausage potatoes, and corn on the cob. We ate... More

I like the lobster there and spicy taste. However, it is a little expensive. Very good service there.

Shrimp and sauces were delicious. Also, loved the hush puppies and corn. The only downside was the wait.

The sauce selection is pretty diverse and they are all some sort of spicy without overpowering the freshness of the meat. I would definitely recommend the Dungenese or King Crab. Potatoes and sausages mixed in with the gumbo gives you just the right amount of variety to keep you going (portions are huge). Best with Corona with a little salt... More

Tiny place. Thought the food was good. No sooner was I back to the hotel, than I was sicker than a dog-for hours. I won't be going back there. Seafood gumbo. ;(

This is a tiny hole in the wall which is well worth the 3 block hike from the car once you find parking. I suggest the full mixture of flavor in your bag of goodies! Service is great, price is right. I suggest this little gem to anyone.

Crab Hut is a fun place with delicious seafood in a casual atmosphere. It is located in a strip mall packed with locals in a non-touristy area of San Diego.

With a rental car for just one night I did my research and decided to give Crab Hut a try. It was highly rated on this site and also Zagat rated, so it had to be decent. I was surprised to find out this restaurant was in the corner of a strip mall, but don't be fooled - this place... More
