The food was excellent! My first shrimp boil! It was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I like how you are able to make your own lemon butter dip, and add as much or as little of each as you want. Reminds me of being a kid, where you eat everything with your hands and leave a big mess afterward! So much fun. Fairly decent house wine, and good happy hour menu. Parking is the only thing that is not so good, but that's Downtown for you. I will definitely be coming back to try the crab boil!

Great expierence, will go back very. My wife and I had the seafood bucket it had everything in it. It was enough for us to share and we still had a little leftovers. We were ready to go back the next day.

Looking forward to coming back.
I normally never write reviews for food. But this is an exception. I was blown away with how delicious the food was and great beer selection. I came to celebrate my boyfriend’s ocean themed birthday. He loves crawfish, so after research, I found you guys. He can't stop talking about how great it was to his friends and even strangers. As soon as we left, he said he can't wait to come back. I also enjoyed it very much. I was a little bummed that they sold out of my first choice but after I received my second choice, I didn't even care because it was so good. Food came out quickly which was a big bonus. Price was way less than I expected. Overall, it was a memorial dinner with the love of my life. We can’t wait to come back.

My family and I enjoyed your restaurant. We had never been to this type of restaurant and truly enjoyed the food and our waitor was excellent. The next time we are in San Diego, we will definitely make this place a necessary stop.

The food was awesome. You
The food was awesome. You have to try any of the seafood buckets w/ the addictive full house sauce. Definitely the best crab bucket my husband and I have ever had hands down. The seafood was very fresh and sauce was amazing. So glad we stumble across this gem of a find. We will definitely go back whenever we are visiting San Diego.

I am a seafood lover and Crab Hut provides very tasty seafood and very well seasoned. I look forward to my next trip to San Diego so I can go back.

My husband surprised me for mother's day, I've wanted to try out the crab hut for a long time now. We arrived and thank god we had reservations because the wait list was crazy long! We were seated right away. The service was good, the only thing is the pricing on the crab was too much, I was charged for 2lb crab which was obviously about 1 1/4lbs, but they only charge by the 1lb...so it was a 20$ difference, but the crab was delicious! Otherwise had a great experience.

Best Crab Ever!
Firstly my husband is allergic to nuts so I must commend the staff for acknowledging this and checking our order thoroughly. The server was friendly and the food was fantastic. The crab had so much flavour and came out piping hot. It's a great way to eat crab!

The place to go for seafood
Loved the seafood bucket. Our family of 5 had more than enough. Boat sampler appetizer was a lot as well. Enjoyed a hearty meal

They have which may be college students working there, but they move slow as far as waiting on you once your seated. It took us a hour between being seated & ordering food which I had reservations as well. Food was great, but needs to speed up the servers cause it wasn't packed when we dined

GOOD FOOD AT A GOOD PRICE
Selected Crab Hut on a friend's recommendation and I was not disappointed. Portions are excellent. If you are a person who does not eat food that is seasoned "spicy", do not ventrure past 1/2 medium. I will definitely return to Crab Hut.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very clean, great service, and reasonable prices for fresh seafood!

Seafood to die for!
We had been here for lunch on a previous trip to San Diego, but this time my wife and daughter and I went there for dinner. We started with some delicious oysters. It was the first time our daughter had tried oysters and she loved them. Then for the main event, we ordered the $55 seafood bucket, which included king crab legs, mussels, clams, prawns, corn and potatoes all cooked in the full house sauce in a plastic bag! We also ordered a 2 lb. lobster. It all came in a couple of bags. It was messy, but it was fantastic! One of the best seafood meals I have had since living in Singapore! Highly recommend this place. The total bill with key lime cheesecake for dessert came to around $140. Enjoy!

Crab Hut was a great find.
We were in San Diego for comic con and we wanted a little something different than generic good like burgers and fries. This place helped us end the weekend on a great note. The crab was delicious and the appetizers we got were all great.

If you love seafood this is a place for you. Not too expensive either.

Ultimate seafood experience!
Is always fun to do the crab pot simply dumped out onto the table! Just dig in! Only reason I didn't give a 5 for the food is the crab legs were rather soft so bent when you tried to break them open. Maybe a little overcooked. Tasted great though! will definitely eat here again!

Unknown to us
I was very excited to try this restaurant during Restaurant Week here in San Diego. The food was excellent and the service was great. This will not be the last time I visit this excellent place.

The food was delicious and they have good happy hour deals
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there wanting to get crab. Let the waitress talk us out of the restaurant week special to get a cheaper dinner selection. We ended up getting a boil that was very good we were just looking for more crab

Having fun with your food
I love Cajun food and it is really lacking in San Diego and I was really wanting something from that region. I searched the internet and found the Crab Hut listed and decided to give it a try especially since my wife loves crab. I was planning on some Jambalaya but was persuaded by our server Roshawn that we should try one of the seafood boil's. We had the seafood Bucket with the Full House sauce. For me I can take or leave crab there are many other seafood items with better flavor for less money but I love shrimp,clams,mussels and cajun sausage. I figured at 1/2 lb of each item there would be plenty of crab for my wife. If you want your crab New England style stay away but if you want food full of flavor come here and have fun.

Fun, good food
Great casual eatery. Go in, order some good, food, enjoy cold beer and relax. Try the house specialty of seafood boils, Southern/Cajun style. Had a great experience, highly recommed.

We celebrated two birthdays of very different ages.
Everyone had a great time young and old.
Food was cooked to perfection and delicious.

Just what we were looking for
We had been looking for good seafood since Seattle, and we found it here. Nam our waiter, was excellent. He helped us design the meal we wanted and had the kitchen prepare it.the seasoning was excellent. The service was excellent. We would highly recommend this place to anyone. If we lived here we would come here frequently. Being from Charleston, South Carolina, we know good seafood, and The Crab Hut has good seafood.

Best Cajun food in San Diego! We stopped for lunch and were very impressed. We'll be back for sure!

The Crab Hut is more than just a name, it's an expierience! The menu has plenty to chose from as well as simple, tasty fare. It is a "must try" for those who are visiting as well as local diners. Let the experience begin.

Outstanding fresh dungeness
Outstanding fresh dungeness crab; very sweet and perfectly cooked. Best restaurant prepared crab I've ever had!

We had reservations and were a little late, but we were seated right away. I've been to the 5th Ave location twice and the service has been consistent.

This was our first visit to the crab hut. I decided to take my husband for his birthday and he loved the food! We got the seafood bucket and the flavor was just great. I say it was unique because you don't have to worry about not getting messy and using a fork and knife. You receive a bib and gloves and enjoy!!! They also have happy hour during the week which includes 1 dollar oysters!!! My husband loves oysters and he said this were the best he had ever had!
