First visit off the Ferry

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.

Saw them on TV program and checked them out to see if it was real. Yes, very real and very good! Had Gazpacho soup and Uncle Peel sandwich. Great location, well done, would be a regular if I lived here. Up on the 3rd floor of the Market Place. Brian the proprietor is very nice, runs a great operation. Well... More

Hot and cold killer sandwiches and salads. Wines, trays of lasagna and homemade dill pickles make this a great place for great food. Eat in or take to beach, ferry or your balcony.

San & Jack's is a eat-in or takeout restaraunt on the 3rd floor of the Starfish Market building. There were several appetizing sandwich and salad selections, for the vegetarian and also for the non-vegetarian crowd. Service was fast and convenient. There was also plenty of parking (a rare commodity in St Johns!), due to sharing the same building as the... More

on the 3rd floor of the Star fish market area, this place serviced great sandwiches, salads. We came twice to pick up lunch and enjoyed our meals. Love the rock shrimp salad or sandwich. The lemonade was bad but everything else great.

This is a great change of pace from the standard pub grub offerings found elsewhere. The subs are made to order, quite filling and a good value. There were a few occasions when we just wanted to pick something up and eat back at the shack. Each sub made two meals for each of us. Combine this with a trip... More

This a great alternative from other deli resaturants. They have great sandwiches which you pick up on the way to the beach.You can also get dinner and of course deserts and ice cream. Nice upscale place with great food, and I had the lemonade which is home made and really good.

Excellent way to keep fueled up for those long relaxing days at the beach. Many of the beaches do not have concessions or other amenities. We stopped here to pick up a couple of sandwiches so that we could stay out of town longer for the day. Lots of great options and build your own sandwiches as well. Just pack... More
