Being brought up with Louisiana style cooking, I was very pleased to see Crab Hut nearby when I moved to San Diego a while back. This is just like home.....crab brought to the table, a bib to cover your clothes....then you start cracking away.

They have shrimp, crawfish, blue crab, Snow crab legs, king crab legs....chowder, jumbalaya...etc. When getting the shrimp, crab, crawfish boiled (Steamed) you can choose your seasoning and spices. I usualy get the Garlic butter 1/2 mild and the Cajun seasoning mild. A side of corn and I am good to go. There are two Crab Huts...one on Convoy and one Downtown. Convoy parking is tight, and I mean very tight. Downtown, you can park in the mall for three hours free. I prefer Convoy...not sure why the cooking is better there, but it is.

Excellent, fresh seafood served in a bag! The buckets are actually seafood steamed in your choice of sauce. Unique experience and very tasty.

Lots of food, very tasty. Parking is tight and the space is small, but it is worth it! The seasoning are delicious and the king crab is my favorite. I tend to do the king/snow crab combo. Had the mudbugs, but they're not as good as what you get in texas or nola.

I was in San Diego for business and saw the Carb Hut II sign across the street with the Health Department grade "A" posted. Love cajun food, so decided to try it fro lunch.
San Diego was in an extended "Dine Out" promotion, so we chose the price fixed menu. Gumbo to start followed by jambalya, which I may speel wrong, but can attest were both awesome! Rich, thick broth and Spicy. Very filling and a great value.
The location is mainly a sports bar theme. Relaxed. Not too busy on a Tuesday at lunch, but could get noisy with a crowd. Service was fast.
I would definetely return and recommend.
