The staff suggested some of the dishes they are known for. The ribs were tasty but extremely dry. Fries and coleslaw were average and seemed out of a bag. 3 piece chicken was ok but salty and also served with coleslaw and fries. A beer...More

Stopped by and had their meat loaf from the comfort foods. Came with fries and Cole slaw. All were tasty. My wife had a salad which was fresh and crispy. Nice atmosphere.

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.

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.
