From the moment you step out of your car, you'll know by the kitchen aroma that you've made the right choice and found good country "home fixin's" ! You're greeted by pleasant and attentive servers that want you to enjoy your meal and time spent with family or friends. Excellent choices start early every morning from 6:00a until 11:00a for...

This is a local favorite but then a person has to really like eating richer, homestyle, diner food. But the servers were really nice and that can make it a favorite too. I came here with some coworkers and we all had an assortment of options. I chose a turkey reuben with a side of tropical fruit. I wondered what... More

Lunch was great, but not worth the price. $45 for lunch is ridiculous (2 adults, 2 kids meals -sandwiches). It was freezing and staff kept complaining it was hot, I know they are on their feet but when customers are going to get jackets from their car it's a problem. $2.59 a drink is way too much. The servers were... More

service was adequate, food was OK, ordered a breakfast off the 'special' of the day board, that is not on the regular menu, as well as a breakfast off the regular menu. When bill arrived was shocked to see a surcharge added to both breakfasts to compensate for the increased cost of eggs.........this should have been explained up front instead... More

The food, service and the attitude of the Mason Jar...Superb...It's in a small quaint town of Mt. Dora, Florida which adds to the experience...I rarely write anything about restaurants but this place just amazed me...

Good food and a little pricy for what you get. You have to pay extra for raisins and for brown sugar if you want them with your oatmeal??? If you want something good and tasty and plenty of it, order the ham steak... I have always been there for breakfast, so I can't say what the menu is for lunch... More
