I went for the first time and I got food poisoned. Never again. Very casual environment. Our ticket got lost and the waiter realized after 30 minutes. We were given an extra sausage which was nice. Food was tasty but not worth violent vomiting...

Perfectly seasoned and authentic Cajun fare. Great for families, groups or couples. Take out service is outstanding as is the catering. Great service and hefty servings and sides. You can't go wrong.

Mudbugs is obviously a popular place. When we got there at 7, the signature crawfish was out and had to be made again, other seafood was totally gone. We ended up waiting an hour for our highly spiced crawfish. It has been a few decades since I've eaten crawfish, but I don't remember it being so highly spiced with cayenne... More

Was not pleased with Mudbugs at all. The service took forever to bring out the food. Had to ask if food was ready after niece starting get upset because she had been waiting so long and her food was cold. The draft beer was flat and asked for one that was not flat and the owner was very ugly and... More

Mudbugs is a nice convenient place for crawfish in the reservoir area. The employees have always been very friendly and helpful. The crawfish is very good as is the shrimp. I have nothing negative to say about Mudbugs.

I went here expecting a hole in the wall to pick up some crawfish. When I pulled up I found a large parking lot full of cars, and an indoor outdoor eating area with patio style seating outside and large picnic style tables inside. Complete with bar. They also have other things to eat other than crawfish however I didn't... More

We look forward to Crawfish Season all year and hate to see it go, but with a few more weeks to go, we're making the most of it! We have been to Mudbugs at least 5 times in the last month and plan to make it double digits before the season ends. We love the casual atmosphere, the Spicy Crawfish,... More

I had heard about Mudbugs for a while but had only tried the crawfish and shrimp at a wedding reception. It was so well seasoned, I had to check out the place. My wife and I attended one Saturday night. You have to look for the signs; it's off the road and very easy to miss. But once you drive... More

The food here is great. Well seasoned and prepared crawfish. Delicious yellow cream sauce (lemon?). The atmosphere is good too. Plenty of seating usually. Good draft beer selection. Light years better than cross-town rival Crawdad Hole.
