Sims is the go to spot in Charlottetown if you want to treat yourself to a memorable steak or outstanding seafood dish. The beef is Island raised and aged in house for a minimum of 45 days. The restaurant has an open air oyster bar showcasing oysters from various parts of the island. Sims is a great spot for a romantic dinner or gathering with friends. The lunch menu also has great options at a lower price point. My favourites: The seafood bruschetta, tenderloin steak, and mac and cheese!
