Description: 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.

We found that this restaurant came highly recommended so we tried it out. Food was average at best and was quite pricey. We would not go back again.

Since we were staying in a suite hotel and normally cook dinner, this was our night out while attending a conference in Winnipeg. We were not disappointed. We went as a group and while the place is not large it was comfortable and not too noisy. The patio area was closed but we could even see the cyclocross competitors racing... More

We dined out at this restaurant prior to going to MTC. Found the waitress very friendly. She was working solo, but managed very well. Was very friendly. Food was awesome! Loved the smoky flavour. Side dishes were wonderful and the French Fries were awesome!

Located on the river of the Great Forks with a nice view and the food was better than what I expected (You have to try the NACHOS) at a reasonable price

Arrived in Winnipeg as a solo traveller for a conference and went for a wander to the Forks Saturday night. Found Muddy Waters and chose it as I could sit and watch the world go by. Staff immediately welcoming and found me a table on the patio. Exactly the right balance between making sure I was ok and leaving me... More

Spent a lovely happy hour time here yesterday with friends. The atmosphere is like a a beach bar with reggae tunes playing in the background. The bartender accommodates your drink selections. A great place to chill after work on a warm day.

Stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The Forks Market was bustling with people and I wanted to sit outside with a beer and a burger. After reading the menu at the other major outdoor patios here, I chose Muddy Waters. I ordered a beer, a burger with salad and a side of onion rings.... More

We had a lovely meal, but what really made the meal was the service. The server and manager bent over backwards to help us with our gluten intolerance issues. Our son (13) ordered a hamburger and was distressed to receive a burger grilled with BBQ sauce. The server didn't make a big deal about it, sent him out extra fries... More
