Great food, friendly people

We make this a frequent stop on St John. Great sandwiches and salads. Pastries are spectacular. Super friendly people. Feels totally comfortable, and the food is terrific and reasonable.

Stopped by S&J two times over five days, and picked up sandwiches to go. One sandwich is large enough for two people, so you can order light. Also, the grocery store is on the 1st level (S&J on the 3rd level), so you can pick up other items. The breakfast sandwiches are also very good. You can't go wrong with... More

Had a great meal - Chuckles (pastrami & Cole slaw) grilled and my wife had a spinach salad with shrimp. Portions are hearty. Constant stream of customers as all orders are done immediately. Plenty of seating inside or outside. Lots of local people so you know it's good and worth the price.

We found this deli by accident. Stopped into the Marketplace for another reason and followed our noses upstairs due to yummy smells. Breakfast sandwiches on fresh biscuits were delicious. A build-your-own style to choose egg, cheese, meat etc. Only thing is my husband picked sausage for his sandwich, expecting a breakfast sausage patty and instead it was little slices of... More

Had some great sandwiches here. Baked goods and muffins weren't great, though. Real turkey, big sandwiches, great multi-grain bread. Just don't expect New York pastrami!

We stopped by here to pick up lunch on the way to the beach and ended up just eating it at the open air tables outside. Everyone's sandwich BUT mine was delicious. I ordered the Chuckles (pastrami, Cole slaw, Swiss on marble rye). The pastrami was tough and hard to chew, should have been cooked more. Others ordered the meatball,... More

A deli on the 3rd floor? Soon into our St. John vacation, we grew to like our climb, because Sam & Jacks was at the end of it. Reliably delicious food to pack for beautiful St. John beach picnics. Next time we'll try the prepared food for dinner others raved about!

Four of us dropped in for lunch. Very friendly staff, gave good advice on what to order and answered many questions about the island and different ideas on what to do. All 4 of us ordered different food, everyone was happy with selections Salads daily special was also great.

This deli has great salads, subs, and full meals. Don't miss the Whoopie Pies and the cookies! Their bottles of wine are also quite lovely; a step above the liquor store in the first floor of the Marketplace. I had a chef salad that was great. My partner had an Italian sub that was also quite good - - I... More
