Ok food but where is the crawfish etouffe?? Not on the menu. The Crawfish casserole was good but you get these really small bowls. The beer selection is not good some odd ones and the usual watery stuff. The location is nice as is the atmosphere but if your really hungry you will have to get double orders.
I got the Crawfish corn chowder and there was no crawfish in it.

We love Cajun and the choices here were all enticing an we love what we ate. Great options for children too! The location is in such a unique artsy and beautiful area. A real gem of a spot.

We had a great lunch here. I had a pick two special, I picked shrimp étouffée and red beans and rice with sausage. They both were delicious. It also came with bread. The place was spotless. You order your food at a counter and they deliver your food to you. They are very friendly. I definitely will return.

The first thing one notices when entering Mudbugs is the sparkling condition of the restaurant. Many times, these DDD-type places are a little earthy, but this place shines, both in appearance and food. Many patrons were having all-you-can-eat gumbo, a bargain at $7.95, but I tried the "you pick three." Great flavor, very fresh, very nicely prepared. If I were a local, I'd eat at this gem over and over. It's one of those restaurants where I'd like to march through the entire menu.

Mudbugs, located on old Main Street in Carmel, is an excellent choice for better than average Cajun cuisine, outside of Louisiana. Portions are large and and the food is flavorful. Try one of the "You Pick Two" or "You Pick Three" combo's, as the variety cannot be beat. Dishes are a little pricey, based on fast food prices(which this place is). Mudbug's seems to be stcuk in between a sit down and get served, and fast food restaurant, and the measl are priced more like the former.
The Crayfish Etouffe is "to die for" here.
