"To our customers - It is bittersweet news for us to share with you that our last day was December 26. When we opened in 2007, we had more time to dedicate to the day-to-day operations of a restaurant. Now we have four spirited grand...kids and would like more time to spend with them - and to finally have some weekends free for fishing trips! - so we've found another family who is opening a new restaurant in our place."

Fast food Cajun. The service was friendly. I tried the sampler shrimp etouffee, jambalaya, and crawfish casserole. All were light on meat. The hush puppies were good. They had about 10 beers available in cans. The Abita Oktoberfest was good. The shrimp po boy was...the best thing we tried. The Carmal Arts district is fantastic. This restaurant is a good addition.More

Couldn't get over how thin and tasteless the chicken and sausage gumbo was as in " the gumbo had never seen a roux in the kettle." There are much better options for Louisiana type food in Indy, such as Yats, which serves, in my opinion,...the best Cajun in town, and have eateries all over Indianapolis. Mudbugs jambalaya wasn't much better, a little soggy and flavorless for my taste. I was thoroughly disappointed. I gave it two stars because the place was cute, the guy cashier/server was a nice gentleman, and I didn't taste the sandwiches.More

The Gnocchi was amazing, best we've ever had. The seafood jambalaya was really good. Nice place and very good service.

We were passing through Carmel, Indiana on our way to Southern Indiana. We are big fans of New Orleans so we decided to give Mudbugs a try. Although we weren't expecting much due to the location, we proceeded anyway. We were pleasantly surprised. I had...the red beans and rice; they had good flavor. My husband had an andouille po boy and he was pleased with it. The sausage was real New Orleans' style and the portions were very generous. I am not going to say they reached the pinnacle of New Orleans cooking but the food was good and hearty and we would return if in the area again.More

Roy serves up excellent Cajun food with a fun flair. The menu offers a variety of choices and specials a few days a week. If you are lucky you might stop by on 'Gator day!

Great people, great service but did not think the food reflected real Cajun. No heat in any of the dishes. Don't need a lot of heat but some would be nice. Portions are okay though they seem to skimp on the rice. There are other...Cajun restaurants that have better food. I won't go back.More
