We went to Sam and Jacks a couple different times while visiting St. John. My husband loved "The Chuckles." We also ordered one of their platters so we didn't have to cook one night. Overall the food was great and the servers were friendly.

Thank goodness for Trip Advisor as we otherwise wouldn't have known about this place! We had visited the Starfish Market several times during our week stay this March, but there is no signage outside of the building to indicate that this deli exists! Once you get inside the building, there is a small sign indicating what's upstairs. We only tracked... More

Most Sandwiches are about $12 and are big enough to split. I asked them to wrap each half individually, which was nice when passing out at the beach. Super yummy breads. I would advise you call your order in, in advance. It took about 20 minutes for my order. They sell blueberry muffins for $1 each. Cinnamon Rolls are pretty... More

I read a number of reviews of Sam & Jack's Deli that begged a visit when my wife and I went to St. John in March. It was as described and better. The sandwiches, my wife and I had four different offerings during our stay, were large and delicious with a fine mix of quality meats and condiments. "Aunt Dute's... More

Based on a friend's recommendation we picked up a sandwich to take with us to the beach. It. was. delicious! I believe the name of the sandwich was a Hammy Sammy, which was a very generous portion of ham, with Gouda cheese, crispy friend onions (think French's like you use in the green bean casserole, but homemade) and some tasty...

This deli is great! . We stopped either on way to beach or homeward bound. Sandwich selection is interesting and each sandwich feeds two. The only complaint I had in sandwich selection not enough vegetarian choices . Chips are made daily, and the hummus was excellent. Although available, I didn't try the grab and go dinners , but they looked... More

We ordered the Grilling Package from Sam & Jack's for our first night on St. John, after traveling for 20 hours none of us wanted to shop. It included some marinated (BBQ) chicken and some steak strips with potato and macaroni salads. We all agreed that the steak stripes were some of the best we have ever had also the... More

We ordered both sandwiches and salads for our group for lunches (twice), and their fabulous lasagna with both sausage and meatballs for dinner for our group. They were all fabulous! What a great place. Friendly, efficient, and really good!

If you are going to get sandwiches for the beach or just for lunch, definitely make this your destination. I think what makes this place so great is the passion the employees have for their workplace. We met Frank, Josh and Chris and they seemed to really enjoy their jobs and had pride in their sandwiches and you can certainly... More
