My favorite- a pound of shrimp, full house flavor and half medium in spice ( which is pretty spicy). Order a side of white rice. Then pour the sauce on it! If you don't want your hands to smell like garlic for two days, ask for some gloves. I like both locations in San Diego. Less wait downtown though, but... More

From the time we entered to whe we left, the service was impeccable. The food was wonderful and the server was absolutely the best ever. My husband and I were there for my conference in August and decided to experience San Diego's seafood delights. We hit the spot and found the Crqb Hut. We had shrimps, craw fish and mussells....

We had dinner there with friends, ordered lots of seafood and it was delicious. The service was good, the food was good, the location is great (at Gaslamp district), the price was normal. In short words it's a good place to have seafood.

Tell an Australian you can get fresh king crab cooked and served in the most delicious chilli-lime-ginger etc sauce ever for US$36 a kilo ($18/ pound) and they will tell you "You're dreaming!". Sorry if the humor is lost in translation, but when the local Perth (Western Australia) fish market sells king crab for $80/ kg and you don't get... More

Okay, this establishment serves their food spicy even when you ask for mild! Just prepare to get down and dirty with the crab, crawfish, mussels, or whatever else you order; they cover their tables with paper so you know what I mean now. This place gets crowded and loud for dinner; this could wreak havoc on young kids (they don't... More

By far the best crab seasoning! Loved the way they serve your crab legs in a plastic bag (that helps keep food warm too) and that you don't eat from a plate! really enjoyed it! A fun place to go.

Louisiana style cajun seafood themed restaurant. Very good with a relaxed atmosphere. We went on a Monday evening, and were seated promptly. While not necessarily over spicy, a little "kick" is part of the style of this type of cooking. The food has more character than what is normally available in your corporate chain type restaurants. I would definitely go... More
