Still the Top Sandwich spot

Sam and Jack's deli continues to be the best deal for sandwiches in Cruz Bay. One sandwich will usually feed two people so it is always a first stop before heading to the beaches. Great friendly service and wonderful choices.

Great sandwiches and you can call ahead to order and then stop at the market downstairs, get your beverages and ice, get your food and then hit the beach. If there's a downside it's the location, up on the 3rd floor in the back of the Star Market building. But it's really not that big a deal. Also, one day... More

We arrived at 11:45am to order 4 sandwiches to take to the beach, right before another 10-15 people arrived. All of them got their orders before we did. The staff was very unapologetic about the 25 minute wait. When I joked that I thought they had forgotten about us, the server said, "just a lot of orders"....but they all were... More

Their sandwiches were wonderful. We went the night before our beach day and took back to fridge. We really enjoyed them sitting on the beach with our beer. Packed perfectly.

I wanted to love this place - the sandwiches sounded so great. But unfortunately, they were just ok. We will try again though.

This seems to be a good place to get decent sandwiches for lunch or to take for a hike or day trip. It is spacious inside and ordering is quick and easy. There is a good variety to choose from. You can also order a custom sandwich, which I did (roast beef). Items are decently priced and has some to-go... More

This place saved my hunger several times... Pulled pork Sammie- to die for! Service was lovely, atmosphere was great, and the food was heavenly. Don't pass this place up when you go!

Ordered a chicken parm tray for 18 people at the last minute and they were so very accommodating. Sandwiches were great and their home made pesto was wonderful!

After watching the owner's house hunting segment on HGTV's Caribbean Life, I told my wife that we had to sample a lunch at Sam & Jack's. We were not disappointed. Upon entry, we were greeted by friendly staff, the menu explained, and our food was fresh prepared to order. We sat outside the deli in a relaxing atmosphere and enjoyed... More

We went here straight off the ferry and then headed downstairs for a trip to Starfish Market. The Ribeye special was fantastic! The sandwiches are huge and delicious! Big enough to share but also makes great leftovers.
