Awesome chicken wrap loaded with veggies

I had a nice fried chicken wrap loaded with veggies. The service was quick and the food was delicious. I literally looked at the wrap and said, now, this is awesome! I would definitely be back.

Large sandwiches with great veg options. The tofu based sandwiches were delicious. The only improvement would be more drink options beyond the standard sodas and other sugary drinks.

I discovered this place while shopping at the STARFISH market just south of Cruz Bay. It was like being back in Manhattan at a HEBREW NATIONAL deli. Great selection of deli meats and sandwiches. There are several benches inside the deli to enjoy your food or eat at one of the umbrellas on the second floor patio. There is also... More

Their sandwiches are great - enjoyed the Sammy Hammy and made-to-order ones for the rest of the family. It takes a bit of work to get there (3rd floor of a "mall" where the Starfish Market is) on the road from Cruz Bay toward the Westin. When we were there it was cash only. The sandwiches, though, are totally worth... More

The food here was good. At first I thought it seemed a bit expensive, but the portions are large so you get your money's worth. I believe the sandwich I got was called Uncle Peep. It was really good--and big! You can eat there or do what we did and get take out and take it to the beach with... More

OK, we did see Sam and Jack on HGTVs Caribbean Life and made it a point to come while we were on St John. They didn't disappoint. We stopped in to grab some to go lunch for the beach cooler. My wife got some GF food out of the fridge while I ordered the Angelina wrap - everything was outstanding... More

Fresh, quality food...that's what they offer. We simply ate breakfast a/o lunch here, but always wish we'd picked up a dinner for later warm up. Next time we will! Everything's always fresh and yummy, with an island twist. If you seek healthy (or not) options, they have something for everyone! So happy they're still here (and worth the third floor... More

Good food all the way around. We had warm sandwiches and cold ones, pastas and pickles and was not disappointed. I think if you try this early in your stay you will see that this would be a good place to come and pick up some sandwiches for the beach. We enjoyed everything here.

We fell in love with this great deli while visiting the island last August. They have delicious sandwiches and tiramisu. For me, this was my favorite meal of the week. We went to ZoZo's, and several of the more expensive restaurants, but eating The Wolf sandwich on Scott Beach at Caneel Bay was my best dining experience by far. It... More

I have been eating at deli spots up and down the east coast and throughout the West. Sam and jacks is at the top of my list. The lunch meat is fresh and they are not afraid to stuff a lot of it into there sandwiches. The specialty menu has a great blend of sandwiches with delicious flavor combinations. I... More
