We tried three different times to visit Sam and Jack's but never had the right time. I'm so glad we tried again! I had the Wolf and my husband had the Mean Jean. Both were great! Fresh bread and quality ingredients. They also make family meals to go. The owners were there and were very friendly. Next time we will... More

We love this place!! We ate lunch here several times on our 10 day vacation The sandwiches are huge, delicious and very reasonably priced! We have tried so many different ones and they were all good. We also love their homemade chips. Unless they've changed they only take cash so be prepared for that.

My husband & I rented a villa on Bordeaux Mountain for a recent 10-day stay on St. John and upon arrival at our villa we were greeted with a wonderful welcome basket from Sam & Jack's Deli. The basket consisted of all homemade items such as chocolate chip cookies, Dill potato salad, marinated mozzarella, veggie cream cheese, spicy cajun Remoulade,... More

We walked the 6 blocks from the ferry dock based on all the excellent reviews. It was well worth the walk. Excellent food. Tiramisu was amazing. Sandwiches were huge with tons of meat. We could have split one. I would have probably done back but we were only on st. John for one day.

Billed as a gourmet deli, Sam and Jack's has a blackboard listing great-sounding sandwiches. While the chicken salad with crispy beets was delicious, the crab salad was bland and the 'rare' roast beef was overcooked. Not sure that the prices warrant another visit.

We grabbed a sandwich after hiking the Lindt trail. Friendy staff, eager to please. My husband ordered the roast beef sandwich and it was mighty big. I ordered the Rock shrimp salad with goat cheese. It was wonderful and I was very impressed with the salad. I could not believe how tasty it was. The deli also has italian dishes... More

This deli serves wonderful sandwiches that are large enough for two (unless you are starved). This was the only place on the island we ate at twice because the food was so good and the prices were (for STJ) reasonable. The tiramisu was excellent. The only "miss" were the homemade chips which were very overdone. Although we didn't try it,... More

We wish we would have known to share these humongous sandwiches. We spent a small fortune eating lunch here. Though the potato salad was recommended to m by the woman at the counter, it lacked flavor. I would not get this again. The homemade potato chips were completely burned. All of the chips in the basket looked this way (dark... More

My husband and I grabbed a quick lunch here and it was great!! I got the meatball sub which was fantastic! Menu has a full variety of options and we both loved our meals and it was nice to leave the beach for an air conditioned lunch!

This place has a wondeful, wine country feel to it. Lots of fresh food to choose from whether it's the pre-made sandwiches and meals or the ingredients to make your own. I give this place my business every chance I get. So unique to this island, I hope they stick around!
