Love Uncle Peep!

We went to Sam and Jack's twice earlier this month while on vacation. Both times we ordered the Uncle Peep sandwich because it's just that delicious. One sandwich easily feeds two adults. We met Sam's parents in Coral Bay and tried to persuade them to share the recipe for the cranberry-walnut... read more

Had the special Ham and Cheese with Alfredo sauce. Amazing. My husband had the Chuckles - also great! Chocolate Chip cookies and homeade chips were also great!

What a jewel in the Caribbean! The location is perfect, the menu is extremely diverse, they have a wonderful wine selection! The ham is delicious, as were the yummy olives! They make fabulous baskets of goodies to go, which were perfect on our deck during cocktails.

We walked in to get some sandwiches for the evening and were looking at the menu board. The cashier stated "The kitchen closes in four minutes." She didn't ask if she could help us or take our orders or anything. We had to ask, "Can we still order?" to which she responded yes in a somewhat displeased way. We put... More

Sam and Jack's deli continues to be the best deal for sandwiches in Cruz Bay. One sandwich will usually feed two people so it is always a first stop before heading to the beaches. Great friendly service and wonderful choices.

Great sandwiches and you can call ahead to order and then stop at the market downstairs, get your beverages and ice, get your food and then hit the beach. If there's a downside it's the location, up on the 3rd floor in the back of the Star Market building. But it's really not that big a deal. Also, one day... More

We arrived at 11:45am to order 4 sandwiches to take to the beach, right before another 10-15 people arrived. All of them got their orders before we did. The staff was very unapologetic about the 25 minute wait. When I joked that I thought they had forgotten about us, the server said, "just a lot of orders"....but they all were... More

Their sandwiches were wonderful. We went the night before our beach day and took back to fridge. We really enjoyed them sitting on the beach with our beer. Packed perfectly.
