Nimrods' is PEI's first floating pizza bar created by some fun-loving friends that set out on a mission to create a one-off-a-kind restaurant, and after their fair share of challenges were given an opportunity to create something fun for the Peakes Quay marina. They put their heads together and with the help of the community, they found a way to float a 5,000lb brick wood-fire oven and in five weeks created a Caribbean-inspried pizza and pasta bar that offers unique gourmet pizzas, hand made pastas, local craft beer and refreshing tropical cocktails. Their open concept kitchen and bar allows guests to enjoy the entire pizza making process, so you can hop on up to the bar and sip on an apple

We happened across this on our way to see the Van Gogh Experience. So happy we did. The oven fired pizza was delicious, the best in a long time. Also got home cut fries and these were equally as good as the pizza: crisp and...well cooked.More

I ordered the lobster pizza with tomatoe sauce since the one on the menu was a white sauce. They said they could make it and they did. It was truly delicious and my first lobster pizza ever. This is a must have.

How can I explain this one...a pizza restaurant on a floating platform in the Peakes Quay harbourfront. A small menu, but well prepared food. Awesome pizza, we had the "Meatzilla" pizza. Good toppings, excellent taste. The staff are pleasant to talk to, know their stuff...around a wood fired pizza oven!!! Don't have a thing to say wrong about these guys!! Well done and will definitely return on our next trip to Charlottetown.More

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

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

My husband and I headed down to the Charlottetown waterfront for a casual date night. We sat on the patio that has such pretty views of the river, and ordered a wood oven pizza from Nimrods'. I had the Veg Head and I loved it!...Candied Figs on pizza is my new jam! My husband had the Moo Kids on the Dock, and the combination of flavours were a tasty play on a Big Mac, it even had lettuce and pickles!! Who would of thought pickles and figs on pizza!! We will be back again, and again...and again! Oh, and if your wondering about what to drink, ask the good folks at Nimrods' what they suggest. We had a Raspberry Lemon Zest Vodka Seltzer and a Colliding Tide both from local breweries, yum!More

I rarely write reviews, but I can't give this place enough stars. The food was phenomenal, the service outstanding and the setting is the quintessential PEI experience. The atmosphere is so relaxing and funky, with ocean air and gentle waves while enjoying literally the best...pizza I've had outside of Italy. A must-do PEI experience for both locals and visitors.More
