We have had pizza from here (take-out) a couple of times and it was good. Don't know if I would eat in - no AC and it was very hot both times we were there. No sure about any of the other food. We pre-ordered 10 pizzas and they were ready within minutes of our scheduled arrival time.

We had a rental home within a 2 minute drive from this place. Arrived at the home Saturday night around 7pm starving and decided to venture out. Ordered a large take out pizza that took one hour and 15 minutes to complete. BTW there was only one table seated in the place so it's not like they were busy. Paid... More

Mate & Jenny's was down the street from our rental. We tried the conch pizza, ham and pineapple, and pepperoni. All were good. Very cheesy but good. I wouldn't drive all the way to south palmetto point for it but for us, they were open when we got home from a day out and were convenient.

Wow, this place was bad. The pizza was cafeteria quality and overpriced. There were no "delicacies" as advertised in the lonely planet guidebook. Nothing but pizza and wings. (No sandwiches were on the menu.) Restaurant was stuffy inside and smelled like a deep-fryer.

We went for dinner tonight. It's easy to walk to from the Unique Village, if you don't have a car or don't want to drive. We had a small veggie pizza and a medium pepperoni and brought the leftovers with us since the pizzas were pretty big. We got great service from the one person working tonight, super friendly! We...

Not sure what exactly people like about this place. We tried to eat there but it was so hot and grubby inside that we took our pizza to go. The pizza was honestly pretty bad. I could make a better one at home.

THE pizza shop. Not a lot of atmosphere, but pretty good pizza. Not great, but okay good. Mate is a long time fixture on the island and I think a community leader.

Incredibly expensive pizza that tastes like it was frozen. While it was convenient to where we were staying we preferred to head up to Governors Harbor and pick up our (cheaper and much tastier) pizza's at 1648.

Hands down, among the best pizza we've ever had, anywhere. We recommend M & J's to all of our guests, and we order here about once a week. Thinner crust, with a nicely flavored sauce. Pepperoni and pineapple is our favorite. It is made to order, so call ahead to cut your wait time.

If you want to have some food, hang and chat with the locals, and have some drinks.... this is a fun place to be! The pizza is good and they have salads and a few other choices as well. There is always something for everyone!
