good soup and nachos

Quick lunch of corn chowder and a plate of nachos. Sat outdoors on the patio. The chowder was very good. The nachos were good but not spectacular. There was a Cdn Air Force band playing out front, so had free entertainment over lunch. Mostly old tunes.

It all began with 3 waitresses who ignored while they texted. There was no one in front of us or behind and we had to ask to be seated. While we sat for another 5 minutes these 3 waitresses stood with their backs to us and continued to do nothing. We asked for service, and after another 5 minutes we... More

We arrived at 7 on a week night and the restaurant was not really busy at all. We asked to sit on the patio and were told we would be wait listed , despite there being plenty of space. When they finally cleared the tables, we were seated. We ordered food and after an hour and 10 minutes asked what... More

Thank you for expressing your concerns. We do have a waiting list for our patio and those guests on the waiting list are allowed to wander the forks until their table is ready, at which point, we call them. There are times when there does appear to be empty tables but in fact are reserved and awaiting someone's arrival. The... More

Restaurant not clean. Poorly taken care of.Burned out light bulbs. Unplugged tv. Kinda sad and depressing .The seat in the front entry had the rings on it where obviously food pales had been put on it. MORE THAN LIKELY the morning food delivery. We came at night so it might have been that way all day. On a Saturday!!! Absolutely... More

Your experience is not consistent with what are striving to achieve here at Muddy Waters. You did visit us on a very busy day at the end of an equally busy week. We do our best to clean up as we go throughout the day and it is unfortunate we missed something. We are addressing your concerns and dealing with... More

I'm really surprised this place has been around as long as it has been as it's really not great quality. Have been twice for drinks and appetizers. The cocktails are horrible i.e. mojitos from a mix, caesars that taste funny, and the nachos tasted like they had days old chicken on them, guacamole like what you get in the store... More

Had dinner on a Saturday night. Tried the full rack of ribs. The ribs come with fries, corn, coleslaw and beans. Unfortunately the ribs were really dry. Flavour was good but it didn't really matter. I expected much better from a restaurant that specializes in that type of food. Service was good. Meal was expensive. Won't be returning.

The ribs were very good as were the fries and salad. The chicken wings (sampled from my companion) were dry but tasty. The staffs was very friendly and efficent. The atmosphere, with the floor to ceiling windows, and the location are superb.

Quite often these days, ribs are more enjoyable as a concept than as a reality. Many chains seem to have pre-packaged frozen ribs that all taste the same. Muddy Waters is better than that. Their ribs are succulent and meaty - done so that they are slightly charred on the corners and with sufficient sauce. The fries are good too... More
