Always Good! Big Portions!

I have never had bad food at Sam and Jack's! The prices are worth the quality. The Uncle Peep is my favorite. The specials are consistently fabulous as well! Once, they had this crispy pork belly special that I still dream about. Also, take a look in the cold case for take home meals, and... read more

Just returned from St. John where we spent a week with friends from college days. I had read about this deli on TripAdvisor so decided to give it a try. We had great sandwiches for lunch one day and ordered a take out meal of lasagna that we had for dinner the next night. Both were very good. We ordered... More

We got take out at Sam and Jack's twice during our week long stay- excellent take home meals for a quiet night in but best of all were the deli sandwiches!

I found the sandwiches and the service to be excellent! Meals to go looked tasty and they are the best place to stop for a picnic lunch.

A St Thomas local recommend Sam & Jacks so we gave it a go. My husband had the Wolf sandwich (cripsy prawns, arugula & a spicy aioli) and added smoked gouda cheese....it was to die for! Nice fresh ingredients & friendly staff. A must try if you fancy a gourmet sandwich in a casual atmosphere.

It took us a few days to figure out where Sam & Jack's was, but the place were we stayed on St. John gave us a gift basket of goodies from Sam & Jack's, so we wanted to get there ourselves. We finally found it and were very happy we did. Terrific sandwiches (including an offering of gluten-free bread) and... More

It is a great deal on the island and we will be back for more!! The desserts in the cabinet looked incredible also!!! Prepackaged for... More

We selected 4 sandwiches that were delicious! The homemade chips were great and enjoyed by all! The location is comfortable with easy parking above starfish market.

We decided to check this place out for lunch after reading so many great reviews on Trip Advisor. We were staying in downtown Cruz Bay so this place was a bit of a walk from there and up a large hill. Resturant sits upstairs in a multi use building. Sandwiches were good and had home made chips.

We really liked the food at Sam and Jacks. Top quality ingredients used and great combinations. They only accept cash so be prepared. Staff is not tolerant of: confusion regarding the menu, a look of dismay when told "cash only," asking their option about different options. Seriously. Gather your thoughts and get your entire order straight BEFORE you approach the... More
