My husband wanted to eat here because it appeared to be more of a local spot vs a tourist trap. I got the fried chicken which I thought was good. I got mashed potatoes and green beans for my sides. Potatoes were good, green beans were undercooked. My husband got the ribeye steak but said it was a little over... More

The chicken fried steak was pretty good. The service was okay. She checked on us 3 times in 60 min. Would still recommend it to anyone.

This was our first stop upon arriving in Colorado Springs. We were staying in Manitou Springs and the Mason Jar is just a couple miles from there. It was lunch time and we were hungry. My first impression is that it appeared similar to The Cracker Barrel and I would still agree with that, except the seating is not as... More

When we head to Colorado we ALWAYS eat at the Mason Jar. It is always good. The owner is there and on top of things. The service is perfect and food is too. With all the places we want to go when we are there this is the only one we make sure and stop at multiple times.

We were advised by the guys at the visitor center The Mason Jar was a classic 'Mom 'n Pop' eatery. I think we agree. Although the appetizer was served on shredded red cabbage. A first for me. But it did act as a natural drain for any extra fry grease. I had the fried chicken, good crunch and tasty. My... More

Good food, average prices, service was ok. Probably wouldn't make it a point to go back when in the area again just because it was ok and average. Nothing wonderful.

The service is great and friendly. It is clean, rustic and cozy. The trout was cooked well, delicious taste, however it was not filleted the right way and had so many bones you couldn't even chew it without spitting out 6-7 each bite. The manager was very nice, didn't charge us for it. The mashed potatoes were to die for!... More
