Great food but needs more blackened catfish and variety. Love the music played as well. Become more Louisiana style.

Very good cajun food although I would recommend J Gumbos and Yats over this place. They did have a homemade king cake around Mardi Gras that was very delicious. I would recommend this food and you can't beat the location. Definitely try the shrimp poboy!

My dad is from southwest Louisiana and Mudbugs tastes the closest to what I know Cajun food to be. The pork roast and gravy is the best!

Visited today and cannot say enough about this place. Wonderful customer service. Owner treated us Chicagoans like we were something special. Offered a sample platter with a taste of everything, and having been to NOLA several times, I can attest this is some of the best Cajun cuisine there is. Try the gumbo with an Abita beer. Amazing. Thanks to... More

Really enjoyed our trip here great food and service. The lady taking our order was the owner she was very knowledgeable of Cajun food and New Orleans in general. I traveled there a few years back and miss the food we were able to talk about the sights and the food. Great indoor and outdoor table service.

Excellent customer service with awesome Southern cuisine. I tried the sampler and found the food to reflect the Southern Taste of Louisiana. The Gumbo has a mild roue with a hint of filet while the Shrimp Etoufee was creamy and delightful. Beignets was very tasty. I would definitely recommend stopping and enjoying this Cajune Cuisine.
