We have breakfast here twice a year when we visit family in the area. I prefer to eat at family/local restaurants whenever possible. This is among my favorites. The coffee is hot and plentiful. The food is always excellent and more then I can eat. Give them a try and you'll be glad you did.

The Mason Jar is a small family owned restaurant that is most definitely the place to go in the area for breakfast. Service is great, the food is fabulous and the cost is very reasonable. Forget the big restaurant chains and try this place. You will not be disappointed.

I have lived in Lake County longer than Mason Jar has been a restaurant, but not by much. The family that is and always has been Mason Jar is local and has many friends. I am talking about breakfast but I may have eaten some of almost everything. Coffee is excellent, always hot and refilled as often as you want.... More

We live very close to the Mason Jar and eat here often. The daily selection of fresh, southern-cooked vegetables are a hit every time. I don't believe I've ever had a disappointment here! All you can eat fried chicken on Sundays is awesome!

Spent the day in the Mount Dora area, and had read an article in the local newspaper (Orlando Sentinel) proclaiming The Mason Jar as having the best fried chicken in Central Florida. It was a Sunday and they offered all you can eat fried chicken with 3 sides for $10. The fried chicken was excellent, not overly breaded, and incredibly... More

This is by far the best breakfast place in the Central Florida area! Do not waste your time or money at Cracker Barrel, it doesn't compare!

They served canned gravy on my biscuits and gravy. True southerners are offended. The servers seemed to be more attuned to the locals than giving good service to other patrons. What happened to Southern hospitality.Well maybe next time if i stop i will try the chicken.

I almost canceled our hour plus ride to Mason Jar to try their fried chicken after reading a recent negative review. But, It was a chance to take our new Harley for a ride, so we decided to go anyway. SO GLAD WE WENT!!! Went on 9/7 for Sunday all you can eat fried chicken. They give you 3 huge... More

Being that this place is an hour away, I was really hoping that it would be as good as the reviews said it would be. We went for the all you can eat fried chicken on Sunday and it was so so good! The meat was so juicy that it melted in your mouth and the sides were as home... More
