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.

Would not go back

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... read 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

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

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
