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

Good food, but nothing special. Would definitely come back for lunch, but would not go out of my way.

Excellent Food and great service. Highly recommend it. We food shopped and alcohol shopped at the Market Place and had lunch at Sam & Jack's as soon as we got our rental jeep. What a great way to start our vacation!!

We began and ended our vacation at Sam & Jack's, picking up delicious sandwiches when we arrived on St. John and to go when we departed. They offer an interesting variety of sandwiches, with original twists on Italian deli classics, chicken salad, pulled pork, etc. Get a brownie for dessert! Fresh brewed iced tea and lemonade were excellent; bottled drinks... More

When you visit a location more than once, there are places that become near and dear to your hearts and stomachs, lol. Sam and Jack's is one of those places. We love to eat lunches out and then stay at the villa in the evening. Our new tradtion, three times now, Peachy Peachy Pie Stromboli, Garfield Lasagna, and a side... More

Best part for me was that were very accommodating for our dietary needs. I eat gluten free because I have to, plus vegetarian, and they had gluten free bread available! Two more meat eaters, two more vegetarians: they were able to meet all of our requests and make very excellent large sandwiches.

Ordered salads and sandwiches for take out on two occasions. Ingredients were fresh and delicious and cost was comparable to other options. Many of the sandwiches are large enough to share with two. They vegetarian in our group was pleased with the quinoa salad and Aubergine(sp?) sandwich
