This restaurant was a pleasant place to take a guest who was staying at a nearby hotel at The Forks. The ribs were tasty but not as robust as other restaurants. The service was friendly. Lots of folks watching the hockey game on the monitors. So, good for friends to visit, but not for anything fancy.

Over cooked and not great sauce. The wings were over cooked and the sweet chili sauce didn't taste like sweet chili. They tasted better the next day. I wouldn't go again.

I had to spend an afternoon at the forks and needed a place to work on some paperwork. This restaurant was very accommodating. A couple cold beer, a football game on the TV and some great wings and coleslaw made for a fantastic Sunday afternoon. The service was also very good.

I tried Muddy Waters Smokehouse & BBQ as there was a Groupon. I had never been there before and I'm not sure if I'd go back to be honest. It's wonderful to sit outside in the Forks and the service was friendly. The food however, was quite dry. I had chicken wings which were all dry and my father had... More

This place has terrible food! We bought a Groupon for it and went with moderate expectations (given that the huge billboard on Disraeli says "best fall of the bone ribs in town"). The ribs were impossible to chew through, wings were burnt and had no seasoning, beans were lackluster and all the other sides were bland. Don't bother wasting your... More

We stopped in while we were touring the forks. My wife and the Caesar with chicken, my buddy had a burger and I had the chicken wings. All were very tasty. The server was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable of the menu. There were a couple of small irritations. The beer tap had just been fixed so there was no beer... More

If you are in the Forks area this is a wonderful restaurant to try. The food is excellent, very good value, their drinks are also reasonable. The waitress we had was great, very friendly and helpful with advice for visitors/newcomers to Winnipeg. Will definitely return to this restaurant when I am travelling to Winnipeg.

We strolled through The Forks in downtown Winnipeg, but at suppertime they don't have much to offer. We came across Muddy Waters and took an outdoor table. We had a great people-watching spot on a lovely Saturday evening. We both ordered ribs. The sauce is definitely the vinegar-based, North Carolina style. The meat was tender but not to the level...

We ate in the outdoor seating area in Forks. Split an order of Nachos supreme, they were great. Glad we didn't get one each, it was huge, nice ambience right in the Middle of the Forks area. Great for people watching. Would go again

Great patio area for enjoying food, drink, sights and sounds while at The Forks. There is usually something going on just outside the patio to enjoy so location is perfect and with only this one exception the food has been too! A favourite of ours here has always been the nacho plate (with choice of meat) we usually have the... More
