Not a fancy looking restaurant but has good service and food. Prices were good. Serving portions are fare the price. Would recommend others to try.

Nice restaurant. Seated quickly. We asked to sit outside under an umbrella. Was a windy day so was told to hang onto the patio umbrella. Kinda awkward to do this while trying to eat and drink. They should have umbrella anchors under the tables and...More

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.
