Executive Chef Adam Koppany utilizes fresh, local ingredients to create regionally inspired seasonal menus for Watermark. A native of Ontario, Adam has spent most of his professional cooking career in Alberta hotels including Banff’s renowned Rimrock Resort Hotel. He explains, “my cooking style is French-based with Canadian regional accents. I believe in using good quality seasonal ingredients from local sources wherever possible. By keeping food simplistic, good ingredients will speak for themselves”.
Watermark also features an intimate wine bar serving international vintages and a large selection of Ontario VQA Wines from Prince Edward County and the Niagara district. In addition, the restaurant’s waterfront terrace boasts one of the best views in the 1000 Islands region, making it the ideal place to enjoy expertly prepared local fare.

For more than 60 years the legendary fishing guide “Muskie” Jake Huntley led guests of The Gananoque Inn on their quest for the illusive muskellunge. Taking fishermen from all over the world to his secret fishing spots to hunt Muskie, as well as bass and pike, Jake has become a part of Gananoque’s history. The St. Lawrence River provides an excellent habitat for these amazing game fish, the giants of the pike family, which weigh up to 69 pounds and “Muskie” Jake was a master of the chase. Most days during the summer you can still see his fishing boat, the Muskie Jake (now belonging to the Inn) tied up at the dock.
