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

Not only is this place the best deal for food on the island - it is delicious! High quality food, friendly service and enough to keep two teenage boys full! We ate here 3 times during our stay and got lunch for our trip home.

Friendly staff quickly made us sandwiches to take on our fishing trip. I had the Big Drew (House-Made Sundried Tomato Chicken Salad served with Mixed Greens and Topped with Crispy Fried Beets--very unique. They have several sauces you can add on top. Everyone in my family enjoyed their sandwiches.

We had a care package from Sam and Jacks in our villa upon arrival. The potato salad, turkey salad, dips, bread, chocolate chip cookies were all wonderful!!

all the sandwiches are freshly made. Pricey but you get a lot of good food in the sandwich. They also have prepared dinners to go which we wanted to try but missed out due to closing time. We used Sam&Jack's 3x in our week in St. John's. The owners are usually onsite and monitor what is going on. Maybe because... More

Met the owners. They were super nice! Grabbed a few Uncle Peep sandwiches, Big Time Drew and homemade chips to take to the beach! They kept in the cooler very well and were delicious!!!! Stop by for an easy beach lunch! Great quality!

Saw these guys on HGTV so wanted to stop in for a visit. Bought some subs and a salad. The subs were good, pasta salad was ok, did not finish it. Homemade chips were good. The salad was not fresh. Seemed to be pre-made. We were greeted when we came in and asked if we had ever been there before.... More

We needed a meal that wasn't $60 or $70 while visiting St John, so we decided to stop by this place in the Marketplace. It was just what we were looking for - I had the Meatball Sub (I forget the name) and my wife had the Sammy Hammy. They were both very good, and our son approved of both... More

It is on the top floor of the marketplace and it doesn't seem to affect their customer base. Even the simple sandwiches are packed with very good meat and veggies. We wrapped a couple of sandwiches for a picnic on Trunk Beach and it was perfect.
