Nimrods is a truly unique addition in the Charlottetown restaurant scene. It could have been just another average pizza place marketed exclusively to tourists and overcharging because of its location, floating in the harbour, but instead has turned into a hub for locals and visitors...alike by young entrepreneurs who see high quality food as a way to bring people together and build community. Everything from the pizzas to the nachos is cooked in a massive brick wood-fired oven (I have no idea how it floats, but I’m glad it does!) and buzzers ring when your food is ready. I’ve waited up to 30 minutes on a busy night, but has been worth it every time. The menu is limited to about a dozen different personal size pizzas/nachos, but they seem to do them all to perfection and we’ve always found something for everyone’s palate. The friendly staff always seem to be having fun (how can you not have fun on the water?!) and are always willing to recommend their favourites. There is a weekly special with meat and a weekly vegetarian special which keeps things interesting, though I often go for to the shwarmin norman. Nimrods also programs a weekly trivia night and live music many nights of the week in the summer, I am already looking forward to next season!More

Wow I cannot believe all the good reviews and 5 star rating for this place. Pizza is not good and very over priced! So disappointing. A group of us tried a variety of the pizzas and all were underwhelming.

We don’t know what’s better; the pizza or the service. This place is so much fun. Our family comes often during vacation in PEI because you never know what fun they have in store. -TKBS

I live in Nova Scotia but visit the Island frequently and have been meaning to try the pizzas at Nimrods since they first opened. I FINALLY got the chance when I went with my girlfriends this past weekend and boy am I ever kicking myself...for not trying it sooner. The pizza was phenomenal! We were all raving about how delicious it was and made plans to return with our significant others. Hands down the best artisanal pizza crust I have ever had (and I've had wood fired pizzas from all over Europe). They had so many awesome flavor combinations on their menu we had a hard time choosing so we asked the staff for recommendations and were not disappointed. Can't wait to go back so I can try another one :DMore

Delicious food, super friendly staff, and fantastic atmosphere! Great specials and deals and also really fun events and community engagement. I got their vegan pizza, with the vegan cheese, Fauxmage, made locally, and it was soooooo good! Can't wait to go back.

Going to Nimrods is not just about delicious meal, it's a sense of community. The atmosphere, staff and scenery all make for a wonderful time. Nimrods supports many local businesses whether it's buying locally made ingredients or donating to community groups. Their staff are paid...a fair wages and treated tremendously, which shows through their enthusiasm. The Nimrods crew are super accommodating for vegan diets, using locally made vegan cheese from Fresh Start Fauxmage to veganize any dish on their menu. Head down to the water and grab a pizza, you won't be disappointed!!More
