Mudbugs Cajun Cafe and Restaurant Brings Cajun to Carmel, Indiana

There’s only one Mudbugs Cajun Cafe in all of Indiana and across the entire United States. Upbeat, upscale Carmel, Indiana is the lucky host for this unique restaurant. The owners of Mudbugs are of the opinion that theirs is a Carmel restaurant offering more authenticity, personality and downright Southern culinary love than any chain, ethnic or not, can bring to the table. And they are proud to have created a spicy environment and adventurous fare to go with it.

Bold designer colors surround you at Mudbugs Cajun Cafe and Restaurant, which sports bright yellow walls punctuated with enormous strips of deep purple, pumpkin orange and lime green. All the colors reflect the spirit of the food served in this fun Carmel restaurant, which draws its fans from miles around, and makes a great afternoon or day trip from nearby Indianapolis. You can enjoy the seating inside or out, too.

For the Mudbugs folks, nothing is more important than authenticity in the Cajun craze that has lately swept the country. If you’re going to get a Crawfish Etouffee, thick stew full of fresh crawfish over rice, then get the real thing, is what they say. Don’t miss the Red Beans & Rice with sausage and those all-important Cajun seasonings when you’ve got the chance. Mudbugs Cajun Cafe serves up the freshest, most authentic around.

Know what a Po’Boy is? It’s a Cajun sandwich served on French bread. You’ve got your Shrimp Po’Boys, your Pork Po’Boys and your Catfish Po’Boys at Mudbugs, each served with your choice of sides.

Mudbugs Cajun Cafe and Restaurant is easily found, right in the middle of beautiful downtown Carmel, on Main Street. Get in the groove and go Cajun at Mudbugs next time you find yourself in Carmel’s Arts & Design District.
