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.

Good Food & Drinks at the Forks!

Muddy Waters is a good place to stop in for a drink and a bite to eat while at the Forks. The food is good and it's conveniently located. The drinks and service were good and my burger was quite good but the Smoked Cheddar Mac & Cheese was more like cooked dry macaroni with melted cheese on top... read more

cold ribs, defensive owners when we complained. Apparently that's the way they are supposed to properly come. There was other things that we got, but it was just awful, not worth the $$.

We have eaten here numerous times and the food quality is steady. If you like barbeque and casual dining this is a great spot to visit. Excellent service and always has been fun for us!

Friendly wait staff - I like to ask what the staff recommends at places in visiting for the first time. Mary-Margret was engaging and set me up with ribs Mac-n-cheese and bacon-corn - great meal and great service.

I went out with a bunch of colleagues for supper - the service was good, the food was tasty (I loved the bacon and corn) and the ribs were filling. The price was what you would expect for being located at the forks.

One of our favorite places to eat in the Forks area. Monday thru Thursday evenings are less crowded and although the Forks is always busy in the summer, we find parking more easily accessible on weekdays. I rarely stop at Muddy Waters without having a salad. My favorite is Greek Salad but the Garden and Caesar salads are also good.....fresh,... More

We have visited Muddys numerous times and keep going back because of the quality food and service. Just an evening out, and looking for dinner. Ribs and fixings are always good. And the service is excellent. The server was very attentive and food and drinks were at the table very promptly.

After visiting the Children's Museum (at The Forks) with our 6-year-old granddaughter, we decided to visit Muddy Waters. We had not been here for several years. It is located just opposite the main terminal buildings at the Forks so very convenient. We were quickly greeted and seated. As the outside temperature was 36C, we decided to eat inside. We ordered... More
