We had breakfast with friends and the waiting line was, out the door, for good reason as the food was very good and service was fast with the coffee flowing.

Nicole was perky, engaging, attentive and helpful. She was the best part of the meal. The food was pretty much average. The Italian wedding soup was robust and filled with flavorful ingredients. The beans and rice, just O.K. The 1/2 pound hamburgers were huge...huge and very O.K. The fried green tomatoes were not quite up to average. Tomato a bit... More

I was in the Orlando area for a business trip and had a few hours to kill before my flight home. So I went online and googled "best fried chicken in Orlando area" (I like fried chicken!) The search turned up a few articles, including one "10 best" list. I scanned the list and picked the Mason Jar. It took... More

Too much rush for me. Prefer to be able to sit down and relax enjoying a good meal without feeling pressured. This restaurant states they have offering Homestyle Cooking since 1979 and it feels that way. We found the food to be Ok at best and their service is so-so. The servers are always in a hurry, either bringing food... More

The place smelled like mold. The waitress was not friendly. The basic breakfast was okay. We won't go back.

Went here for breakfast while staying at a nearby campground. My husband likes "down home" cooking and this place fit the bill to a tee. Large menu variety for both breakfast and lunch. Prices are fairly reasonable, some items seems overpriced. We had standard breakfast fare of eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. Only got two strips of bacon but everything... More

I moved an hour away from my long-time home four years ago, but today I was back in the area, meeting friends for lunch at this long-a-favorite-of-mine Mason Jar restaurant. The place was crowded with the lunchtime crowd, and it felt and tasted like home to me. One of my friends eats there every Friday (says the fish is great)... More

"Meh" about sums it up for this restaurant. Food was "good", but nothing to write home about; think Cracker Barrel if you get my drift.

The Mason Jar is a casual down home country kind of place. The servers are all friendly and you will become "honey" or "sweetheart". The food is very good, try the fried chicken, it is yummy. I think the breakfast is what really shines at the old jar. The eggs are cooked just like you ask, great grits, home fries... More
