“Unique casual seafood spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

This is a very casual seafood restaurant. you are given a bib, paper is placed on your table, and if you get one if their specialties prepared to get your hands dirty and chow down! Oh yeah, they give you plastic gloves to eat with too!

“We liked that unique experience very much”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

It's a Louisiana style seafood restaurant.
You order the seafood you choose, in the quantity you choose and you choose how spicy you want it and receive it in double plastic bags.
You get a plastic apron and disposable gloves and start eating.
We had very tasty clam chowder (in cups).
Then, we had Shrimps and Mussels, both in butter and garlic sauce, which were excellent.
We had Corn Bread which we soaked in the mussels sauce and it was delicious.
Their beer was good too.
Service was pleasant and friendly.
We definitely recommend.

“Divine Pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The Crab Hut was like finding lost treasure, Captain Jack Sparrow would be proud to call the Crab Hut his "Black Pearl."
The food was excellent in every sense of the word.
We tried 3 entrees and all exceeded our expectations. The Gumbo, was delicious and tasty. The Jambalaya was amazing! The blackened shrimp was simply to die for.
Our meal had a beautiful presentation which complimented its divine taste.
The service was warm friendly and sincere.
If you like sea food, and or cajan you must put this eatery on your to do list.

“Go if you love sea food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Great selection. It looked like a lot of locals were there. Food was very good. I sat at the bar alone to eat, but did not feel uncomfortable at all. The bartender was friendly. Great local beers.
