I like the Forks and the Muddy Waters restaurant is usually on our sights when we go there. I recommend the burgers which are outstanding and the curly fries are neat too. Recommended.

Great little hangout to grab a bit of lunch on our first trip to Winnipeg. Beautiful, warm autumn day with lots of activity outside the restaurant. Enjoyed our lunch and tried poutine for the first time. Really very good. Burgers were a very hardy helping. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful.

This is the first time I ate inside, and it was pretty good. Normally I sit outside in the sun (under an umbrella) to enjoy the hot Winnipeg summer weather!

Group of us decided to stop in for a meal before meeting. All i can say that we sent back 4 of the 9 meals. They were cold upon delievery. The service was very slow even when told that it wouldnt be any problem.

Went here for an early dinner. The place was not busy and we didn't have to wait for the table. One of my colleagues recommended this place, but she said after that it was not the same as she remembered. This place offered regular pub style food, nothing extra ordinary. The staff was nice and helpful.

Muddy Waters Smokehouse & BBQ is part of the Forks Market in Winnipeg, situated in the central courtyard, near the Johnson Terminal. The restaurant features a smaller inside dining area with a larger patio enclosure for the more temperate times of the year. My wife and I visited late in the evening but settled on splitting a grilled Reuben. The... More

I went here for patio drinks and wings last year. I ordered a dozen salt and pepper wings but all they tasted like was salt. My friend ordered a drink with gin and grapefruit, the waitress called it "the grapefruit thing"... Like come on, if you don't know the products you probably shouldn't work there.

We visited this place with two relatives who had come here before. The food and service were very good indeed and the portions were very generous. We were in the air conditioned part but could have dined outside though at the time Winnipeg was having a rather hot evening so inside was better. Speed of service was very good indeed.

Lovely sitting outside this place int he sun, having a beer and chowing down on a huge burger. The food and beer were excellent and the staff were very friendly. Its great to sit outside and have the hustle and bustle of the Forks pass you by.

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.
