Highly recommend coming here! The food was great. My family and i (4 people) got the bucket and some rice and wow that got us very stuffed! Kinda on the pricey side so i recommend going with some friends or family to share the big meal with!
We requested to treat a make-a-wish family to dinner anonymously and the manager split the check with us with the utmost discretion.
THE entire experience was great. I enjoyed being Down Town in the city on a week night. I had the best server a guest could ask for. It was my first time at Crab Hut and my server made a lasting impression. Suggesting things on the menu and offering advice on parking in the down town area. I enjoyed my experience and i will be back again.
In town from Seattle: we drove the whole way. Went for crab legs for my wife. She loves them. It was creole style, which was great for spices. I just didn’t prefer the multitude of crawfish in most of the dishes. I hadn’t ever had crab and we tried both snow and king and it was good. I got salmon and asparagus and that was pretty amazing. Unfortunately, it wasn’t what I wanted (Fish and Chips). They were out of their Cajun style fries and the only option for a sub was okra and sweet potato fries. Both of which I don’t enjoy so much.
However, if you love Cajun spice (I do) and varied seafood options different from the norm, this place is for you.
Everything was amazing, from the food to the server!!
We were in San Diego for a fun trip with my husband. The food was ok.....definitely messy. I don’t think I would go back. The bucket is brought to you in a plastic bag and you are given gloves to wear. Pretty gross. Lol. Food was ok. I didn’t love the seasoning I chose.
Outstanding food, really spicy even when requesting medium so beware! LOL
Great experience and delicious food!
Best crab pot place! Always come here when visiting San Diego
All of the seafood we ordered were fresh and delicious.
The inside was neat and the staff is all kind. We all enjoyed it so much. If we go to San Diego, we would like to visit again.
Great food I notice the prize was higher and the seabucket had less shrimp... maybe it was a new cook. I hope it gets better next time? Thank you.
Imitation calamari and no Dungeness crabs not enough snow crabs for the price..Food is priced high not good quality..no parking down town
I love crab hut go a country le times a month
Usually the snow crab is quite big this was the first time it was NOT. Figure 11/2 pound a person. They are improving on their bread too, but I still think they could date a half of loaf of French bread for the price like Fisherman warf serves French bread. With Crab you need yummy bread please
Restorant is below expectation. Oysters were good but lobster was spicy irrespectevely of my request.
Forks for lobster are plastic!
Got the gumbo and it was pretty mediocre, 1/2 shrimp is always a winner! Overpriced appetizers but really good taste (not the gumbo)
We are visiting and really wanted seafood and it was delicious!
The pictures do not do this place justice! My family and I were looking for a spot with yummy food and this place did not disappoint! Food was excellent and so satisfying. A few of us got the "boil-style" buckets. They were a nicely portioned and having the option to choose different seasonings was great. Their cajun pasta was delicious as well, I chose to get shrimp instead of chicken! We loved everything about this dining experience. We are not from the area, so it was a nice find on Open Table.
Great as always! The food is definitely worth the price and we always have a great time.
Food and service are great every time I go to San Diego I make sure to eat there
Fantastic food! Excellent environment! Spectacular service! Recommended to all seafood lovers!
I have to say this place wasn't great at all. The decor was cool and it looked great, however the food vs price ratio was off par, that includes quality, taste, and even presentation. I mean they deliver your entre in a plastic bag, wtf is that all about. Extremely messy and difficult to enjoy your meal. Super expensive and not worth it. But staff is nice and they have an ok happy hour.
The food was delicious. The staff and service was really good. The restaurant itself was dirty... all the wall hangings (fish, pictures bathroom door hinges, etc) all had disgusting layer of a gooey greasy dust.
The food was excellent especially given the Louisiana type seasoning! Service was outstanding and fast. If you enjoy Cajun seasoned shellfish, this is a place that you must go to!
Decor and ambiance are minimal, but the food was fabulous and it was very easy to carry on a conversation despite being completely full.
Service was poor. Didn’t get my drinks maybe 20 mins after seating down. No waiter come to introduce their self. Won’t be coming back to this location.
Very bad quality and after taste. The shrimp was clearly not fresh as well.
Food was excellent
Crabs are amazing!
Perfect spot! Great restaurant to enjoy food with family and friends. Truly enjoyed the experience!
It was fast. The food was excellent!
If you love seafood and don't mind getting your fingers messy, this is the place for you. Great clams and shrimp, with garlic bread to soak the sauce. Great spices. Yum!
The food was delicious and plenty for all. The requested spice levels were very good and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We will come again.
Excellent late night dining in San Diego Gaslamp area. Best Gumbo outside New Orleans aka Nawlins!
No Hush puppies but cornbread filled the bill. Hubby was only a little hungry but he ate two bowls!
I enjoyed a bowl of Tomato basil soup. It was rich and not overly salted like canned soups.
We have definitely added this change of pace to our dining favorites.
We had a wonderful dinner once again. However, may I suggest a non-spicy sauce option for small kids? My 2-year old niece loves seafood, but she couldn’t have any because the sauce was too spicy for her
The seafood tasted great! Service was very attentive and timely. Great value for the cost. Tried both flavor loaded crab and plain, the quality was excellent
Delicioso todo !! Lo único fue que nos ensuciamos todos y después me di cuanta que daban guantes y a nosotros no nos ofrecieron
So great to find Louisiana spices in San Diego!! Everything was really good!!
Love this place! Always great service, friendly, nice, etc!!
It was a no frills place with straight forward food. I didn’t like the “throw your shells all over the table” option but, when In Rome!
