Sandwiches are great tasting meals!

all the sandwiches are freshly made. Pricey but you get a lot of good food in the sandwich. They also have prepared dinners to go which we wanted to try but missed out due to closing time. We used Sam&Jack's 3x in our week in St. John's. The owners are usually onsite and monitor what is going... read more

Met the owners. They were super nice! Grabbed a few Uncle Peep sandwiches, Big Time Drew and homemade chips to take to the beach! They kept in the cooler very well and were delicious!!!! Stop by for an easy beach lunch! Great quality!

Saw these guys on HGTV so wanted to stop in for a visit. Bought some subs and a salad. The subs were good, pasta salad was ok, did not finish it. Homemade chips were good. The salad was not fresh. Seemed to be pre-made. We were greeted when we came in and asked if we had ever been there before.... More

We needed a meal that wasn't $60 or $70 while visiting St John, so we decided to stop by this place in the Marketplace. It was just what we were looking for - I had the Meatball Sub (I forget the name) and my wife had the Sammy Hammy. They were both very good, and our son approved of both... More

It is on the top floor of the marketplace and it doesn't seem to affect their customer base. Even the simple sandwiches are packed with very good meat and veggies. We wrapped a couple of sandwiches for a picnic on Trunk Beach and it was perfect.

And we're ready for something outta this world...but, it's a normal good deli, and those are hard to find on STJ. Not bad, but not certainly worth all the stars.

We went the last beach day to get grub to take to salt pond. I wish we started here day one and saved the $ on grocery at the starfish market. The sandwiches were GREAT and the prepackaged meals to go looked fantastic too ( we never got to try them) I loved it and the prices are good. I... More

This was probably my 4th visit to this deli and I absolutely love it! First of, the character in the ambience is perfect, a very pleasant surprise in St John. But the food is what's important and everything I have ever had is excellent. They have both hot and cold sandwiches and I've had both. From meatball to pulled pork... More

My husband and I stopped by after a short shopping excursion at Starfish market. The seating area is outdoor and completely enclosed, so the temperature was a little more than comfortable. I had the lasagna w/meatballs and my husband had the meatball sub. The lasagna was good, although the meatballs were bland. What I would recommend is to order the... More

Very pleased with the friendly customer service that goes way above what is customary here on the island. They should open up on coral bay! Great food!
