The Water's Edge Grill at Muskoka's Lake Joseph Club

Perched on the shore of Lake Joseph in magnificent Muskoka, The Water’s Edge Wine Bar & Grill is a charter member of Savour Muskoka, whose mission is to offer a wide selection of regional culinary products and experiences unique to this region of Ontario. A favourite destination for many entertainers, actors and professional athletes, The Water’s Edge also has one the most exquisite settings to enjoy a leisurely lunch on the restaurant's multi-tired terrace in the midst of Muskoka's spectacular scenery.

Guests can park and access the restaurant through the club's glorious gardens
