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

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!
