Great up-scale home cooking! Six of us for lunch, all very happy with our choices. The brussels sprouts are unique and relish! The chicken pot pie enormous. Crab cake sandwich very good. Generous portions all around, and everything comes with "a side." Our wait staff was just the best!

We love their chicken fried chicken and their brussel sprouts are amazing! And be sure to get the their spoonbread or mac and cheese (yes that's a side - who needs green things on a plate!). We also enjoy their chicken pot pie and their crab cake sandwich. This is not a place that serves bread before a meal so... More

We went to the Mason Jar Cafe for dinner on a busy Memorial Day weekend after we called ahead for seating. The Mason Jar is located on the busy a Federal Hwy stretch where there are many restaurants. The Mason Jar is unique for South Florida in that it serves "country" food with a bit of sophistication thrown in, meaning... More

To those of us not from Florida, it seems like all you see are chain restaurants. Well, welcome to the Mason Jar. It's on North Federal Highway (US1) and Oakland Park Blvd. Oh, most parking is in the back. This was our second time here and we were very glad to be here. It's a good vibe. If you are... More

We arrived at 8:50pm. The kitchen was closed, there were people inside, we were denied service. The restaurant hours were until 9:30pm.

We enjoyed a pleasant dinner at the Mason Jar. The service was fine and the entrees were well-prepared. The fried green tomatoes appetizer was delicious as was my spinach & pine nut ravioli. The mahi-mahi was okay, but not wonderful. We enjoyed the ambiance of this cozy restaurant.

After coming here several times, I am happy to report that The Mason Jar is consistently good and a warm, friendly place to dine. The two of us came twice for dinner....we started with salad and fried pickle appetizer...crunchy long wide slices of pickles with a light, tempura-style crust, served with a mild creamy dip. We have ordered the short... More

Really enjoyed the homey atmosphere of this inviting restaurant on Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. The menu's focus is on 'comfort' food and they deliver!! The salad was fresh and crisp with a wonderful house dressing. I ordered a special seafood entree (snapper) and it was outstanding!! There are many 'sides' to choose from e.g. macaroni and cheese, roasted brussel... More
