“Was sicker than a dog”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

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. ;(

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

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.

“Yummy cajon crab!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

This place is AMAZING! However you come here for the crab crawfish mussels etc. some ppl complain that their pastas and jambalaya a are "so-so" lol umm this is a crab restaurant! That's your problem right there! Their crab is out of this world yum! I usually come here with a group of ppl, since its always fun ordering buckets and sharing it with the table. For 3 ppl their $60 assorted bucket is a good amount of food. Also I can handle heat but I got a 3 and towards the end it's ridiculously hot, so eat at your own risk! Other than that, I love their crawfish and mussels. Their crab is great too but get ready to get messy! Don't wear your nice clothes because you will walk out smelling like crab hut... That's how you know it's good!
