This was a great place for lunch. Service was fast and the food was excellent. It was outside the shopping complex.

Had dinner here our first night in Winnipeg. The soup was very good, the salad dressing too bitter for me. My husband and mother each had the meatloaf which they both enjoyed.

The food was not what we expected. Baby back ribs were tough and chewy. Nothing was particularly good.

Muddy Waters run both patios on a first-come, first-served basis during the busy summer months. If the main patio is full, the lower patio/bar is usually a good bet.

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.
