My husband and I ate here last weekend. The food was okay, I probably wouldn't eat there again, but it was okay. The staff was decent, again, nothing to brag about. The location was nice, close to the river and shopping at the Forks Market.

This place has a great summer patio for a relaxing meal with friends. There's a nice view of The Forks area. The food is decent and the beer is cold. Our service was a bit slow, but not so much as to spoil our experience....More

We love going to the Forks and sitting out on the Muddy Waters patio in the summer. It's never the same when winter rolls around ! However, on our last visit, we did eat indoors because the bees were buzzing around and couldn't be convinced...More

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....More

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.

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.
