I have been eating here for 15 years, he just makes good pizza. This is an island that has NO fast food places, it is nice we can always count on getting a pizza from Mate. They are NOT frozen pizza's so it takes some time to make and cook, but well worth the wait. Be sure to try different... More

Extensive menu offering choices that will satisfy any pizza lover! Cool atmosphere too; or takeout if you wish. We first ate at Mate and Jenny's 27 years ago, and the restaurant's success is still going strong. Mate and Jenny's will continue to top the list until they decide they've rolled enough dough...

We had read the great reviews on TripAdvisor and were anticipating some delicious pizza on our first night on the island. Unfortunately the pizza we were served appeared to be a frozen pizza. It had the plastic-y cheese and tasteless pepperoni of a frozen pizza. Definitely not a place we would visit again.

Pizza was very tasty and affordable. We took it to go, it was very hot inside the restaurant. Very nice staff and I liked that they had a bar.

Great pizza and wings. Go in grab a beer, watch a game and chat with the bar tender. You won't be disappointed by the pizza either.

I had a small pepperoni pizza with 5 wings and it was good. Do take out, since there is no AC. I ordered on the spot and the full order was ready within minutes. The cook/server was very friendly. Feel free to ask her about site seeing spots, she is a great resource.

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.
