We had dinner there with friends, ordered lots of seafood and it was delicious. The service was good, the food was good, the location is great (at Gaslamp district), the price was normal. In short words it's a good place to have seafood.

Heard about crab hut from my brother-in-law so we tried it when we visited San Diego last march. I still think about their food every now and then. Skip the sampler though. Just go for the shrimp and crabs with the "all of the above"...More

I love me some crab hut. Crab Hut is a Louisiana style crawfish kitchen. Their food is very good. They have excellent beers. The service is very good. You should make it a point to check it out.
