What we ordered: Crab wraps with cajun fries, a pound of shrimp (garlic butter, half-medium spicy), a half-pound of sausages (garlic butter, half-medium spicy), a half-pound of potatoes (garlic butter, mild), steamed rice
Number in our party: 3
Final check amount: $31.80


  • The food comes out in plastic bags, and you just peel everything and dump the shells on the table, which is covered in butcher paper.  No plates!  It’s messy, interactive, and fun!
  • The wraps had a lot of crab in them, which we like.  Crunchy and delicious!
    The fries are crinkle-cut.  Nothing special, but fries are fries — always yummy.
  • Crab Hut says they have a Louisiana kitchen, but everyone who serves there is Asian.
  • This restaurant would be greatly improved if they had a hand-washing station outside the bathrooms.

Whom not to bring: Vegetarians, prissy people who don’t like to get messy.
Chopsticks: Not offered, even with the rice
