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

My friends who live in the area brought us there and told us what it was. The Crab Hut! CRAB, who wouldn't love that? It was so much more than that. I ordered clams, crawfish, snow crab and it was all in delivered in individual "baggies". All the flavors were in each bag - the herbs and spices. They always... More

Our server made the right portion recommendation among the many options the menu offered. The bib and gloves were fun! The king crab was to die for! We've been talking about this place for days!

Fresh shrimp, unique serving style (the shrimp come in a plastic bag with the selected sauce), and pleasurably messy. Also had their chowder which was excellent.
