Muddy Waters Smokehouse.....The place that loves to party! Located smack dab in the heart of The Forks market, we serve up good ol' Southern hospitality at its finest. The trademark menu at Muddy Waters is a mix of authentic and not-so-authentic Southern style Bar-B-Que. We serve up messy portions that you literally have no choice but to get into body and soul. We invite you to "Put some south in yo' mouth" with the BEST downhome Barbecue this side of the Mississippi! Muddy Waters is home to two of Winnipeg's hottest patios - on the river at the Forks! Take all the great BBQ fixin's home for the easiest and tastiest party you'll ever have.

Great Wings!

Been a regular here for a while. The wings are always good, if not some of the best in the city! Staff is friendly and the patio by the water is a great spot for drinks!

My two teenage daughters had the pulled chicken and pork sandwiches and they liked them. I had the burger and for me it was a little burned and really salty. My husband had a spicy chicken sandwich which he enjoyed. The service was good, and it was nice to sit and watch some soccer on the TV's. We would go... More

I'm not a fan of BBQ but ithis place had a lovely patio and it was a hot sunny day so we could not resist. The salt and pepper chicken wings were tasty and they had the most amazing corn side dish made of butter, honey, fresh corn and bacon. So good! My dining companions had the Louisiana ribs, which...

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

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.

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

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.

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
