Kellie MacKinnon

General Manager

Q: Where are you from?

Kellie: I grew up in Grand Tracadie, PEI – close to Dalvay Beach.


Q: How did you get into the industry?

Kellie: I spent six summers at Dalvay By the Sea where I worked my way up from dishwasher to busser, to server, and then finally the daytime dining room manager.


Q: How long have you been at Sims?

Kellie: I’ve been at Sims for almost 10 years now – I started off serving, then moved to Assistant General Manager and now General Manager.


Q: What are you most excited about with your new role?

Kellie: I’m really excited to learn new things and see the ideas I have come to life.


Q: What are a few of your favourite Sims memories?

Kellie: I have a lot of great memories here! We all have so much fun together and I have met some of my best friends here. I guess it mostly comes down to meeting so many great people and really creating a work family.


Q: Someone is dining at Sims for the first time…what do you recommend to them?

Kellie: There are so many good options! For appetizers I would recommend choosing between some of our signature items: the Shrimp and Scallop Goat Cheese Bruschetta, our Steak Bread, or our Beef, Bacon & Bleu. For an entrée, I love our Gouda Cheese Crusted Tenderloin, and you can never go wrong with a side of Mac N Cheese. Dessert…definitely our Sticky Date Pudding or the Hazelnut Cheesecake with a scoop of Cows Toffee Ice Cream.
