Nice "local" place. I enjoyed ordering my pizza to go and then sitting at the bar, drinking a couple Kaliks and chatting with Mate.

“Neat little local restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

We had the ham and pineapple pizza. It was just average, had alot better. Maybe we should have gone with the conch pizza which they are famous for. Pleasant atmosphere. Tried a goomday smash and it was very good. Ordered grouper fingers but she said no fish. Got wings and they were not much to talk about.

“A spot to enjoy with the locals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

We ended up here on our first night on the island, somehow pizza was sounding pleasant.

The service was great, very friendly and not try too hard.

If you want to enjoy a fun casual joint, without pretensions and decently tasty pizza.. go here! If you need someone to put your napkin in your lap and feed you... this is not the place for you!

“Great Local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2011

Visited Mate and Jennys most nights when we stayed at Palmetto Point. A great place for a quiet drink and a chat with the proprietor. Food was simple really good pizza and of course conch and the bahama mamas were fantastic. No matter how we tried, Mate wouldn't give up his recipe.
