We went to experience our first crawfish boil and it did not disappoint. The staff was very attentive and the there was plenty of food. For being in central Indiana, the crawfish were excellent and seasoned perfectly. The staff made you feel very welcomed. We will definitely do it again.

I've been looking for other Cajun restaurants to eat since moving to Indy in 2009. Being from New Orleans, this restaurant passes my test. Not to mention they also, occasionally have seafood boils! YAY!

Being from South Louisiana I am always interested to see what the "Cajun" restaurants have to offer in other area. I was surprised to find that the food at Mudbugs Cajun Café was true Cajun food. I was amazed that they are able to replicate the tastes and textures in a commercial setting. Excellent!

We live 3 hours away and every time we are in the area we eat at Mudbugs! The owners are so friendly! We plan to do some of their events this summer and fall! Great authentic Cajun food! You can even buy food to take home and keep frozen. DELICIOUS!

Located in the heart of the cultural / artistic space in Carmel, this small restaurant was a great find! Incredibly tasty cajun food, very helpful and friendly staff, quick service, good beer/wine selections, and they even let you taste-test any of the food you'd like to try before ordering. Honestly, you could probably just get by with just a few... More

Authentic New Orleans food and an atmosphere that will make you think you are right in the heart of the Big Easy. Excellent selection of traditional po'boys, seafood inspired entrees, beer, and other Cajun inspired delights. Reasonable prices & great service.

Food is very good with a lot of variety and good size portions. Staff greets you by name and treats you like family. Favorite dishes are the crawfish casserole and the beignets.

What a great place. Great service, great value, nice decor. I really can't think of anything that we didn't like about this place. They gave us a plate of small samples since we didn't have any idea what to order. We decided on the pick three combo. Plenty of food for two people to share. If you like hush puppies... More
