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

18 motorcyclist gave it a 50% rating. Average food and service. To be fair, we will try it once again. Too many good places in the area to settle for second rate.

I should have known better than to trust the restaurant critic from the Orlando Sentinel. Last week she wrote an article, The Best Fried Chicken in Central Florida," and the Mason Jar was her top pick. My wife and I stopped by earlier today, and the chicken is nothing that a million decent home cooks couldn't whip up. It was... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch on the way to somewhere else and were pleasantly surprised. The menu has a lot of variety but the core of it is good Southern food -- fried okra, country fried steak, biscuits, green beans with ham. We tried the hamburgers, fried chicken, and country fried chicken. All were great. The staff was... More

If you're looking for reasonably priced home cooking, the Mason Jar is where you want to be for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The pies are also great!

I was so excited to see a "southern style" cafe in Umatilla. I had visions of fried chicken, country fried steak, roast beef falling into tender pieces, spicy meat loaf, chicken and dumplings.....all the great things you used to be able to find in every tiny town in Florida. We try to be fair, and recognize that every restaurant can... More

Knotty pine booths nearly filled far after lunch time on a weekday. Generous portions of "Granny's" best chicken fried steak, pickled beets, green bean done right, the list continues. Servers are bustling, attentive and as fast as possible. Great place for very comfortable comfort food from Granny. Remember, Granny knows cookin'; she knows nothing about diet, saturated fat or cholesterol.... More
