We ordered take out lunches twice and a tray of eggplant parmesian once while here on our 1 week vacation. The food was really good, particularly the homemade salads and sandwiches. My only criticism is that they only take cash as payment. Hard to believe that they don't take credit cards, but we found that out when we picked up... More

We stopped a several times at Sam & Jack's to take out sandwiches and salads for our day trips around St. John and to the beaches. Interesting menu and daily specials. Everything we ordered was quite tasty. Good portion sizes and very friendly service. They also had ready made refrigerated selections to take back to your condo to microwave. Good... More

We came here mid afternoon ravenous after a day of snorkeling and swimming. We ordered the fish tacos which were just ok. The taco was neither hard nor soft- we're used to soft tacos- and were a bit difficult to eat. The fish wasn't great and the portion a bit small. The turkey and Havarti sandwich on homemade French bread... More

Good selection of lunch sandwiches. Have local St John's rootbeer. Must taste if a fan of rootbeer. Have full dinners to go. Picked up two dinners. They were great. Easy to warm. Tasted wonderful.

This quaint little deli has a welcoming atmosphere. The food is, simply put, delicious. Upon suggestion by another trip advisor customer, my husband had the "Mean Jean" and I had the "Wolf". The sandwiches were five star quality for a two star price. My husband and I have s new St. John favorite!

Angelina (name of the sandwich) was hands down the best vegan sandwich I've had! It was so good that I asked for their recipe. The staff was friendly and welcoming.

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
