The Mason Jar was one of the worst restaurants we have been to. The service was awful, the food was bland and greasy, and it was overpriced. To top it off, two people who ate with us had an upset stomach the next day. I wouldn't go back here if they paid me! Avoid this place at all costs!!

Diana, it's concerning to read this review, because we take extra care when it comes to hygiene and food prep. We're so sorry to hear about your friends, but this isn't typical of us, and we're happy to follow up if you'd like to give us a call. Still, your food and service should always be on point.

Casual place for a quick bite. Pulled pork is a favorite. Can be noisy and sometimes there is a wait.

Staying so close to this restaurant and lounge, it was a natural. With little expectations, I found a pleasant place, good people and service and good food at a very reasonable price. Good selection of everything.

I had the ruben and it was yummy and my co-worker had a schnitzel and it was huge! portions are very big. We had a potato soup that was heaven. I could have just eaten that. The owner and waitress made sure we had everything we needed. Plus you get to drink out of a mason jar. So cute!

I had the brisket platter and it was average. Had the same dish at Virgil's in Times Square and Virgil's blew this away. They've been in Mahwah forever, I recall they opened a location on LBI some years back but it closed pretty quickly. $100 for dinner with tip is just too much money for dinner here (2 adults, 1...

It's a shame to see you didn't love our brisket platter. Just to clarify, we use the freshest ingredients available, and we price everything accordingly. Our brisket isn't for everyone, as each place has it's own twist on BBQ sauce. Still, I'm confident that we've got what it takes to find something you and your family will really love, so... More

Felt like I was eating in a hallway. The Sunday brunch is good a regular meal seemed like everything came from Sysco's frozen prepared line.

First and foremost, I checked their website menu before deciding to eat here with my wife and daughter. The selection looked good and the price points were reasonable. That said, the actual pricing listed on the menus at the restaurant were 20%+ higher than the web site. This is important because when you add 7% tax and 15% tip to... More

It's truly disappointing to read this review. While we try to keep our website as up-to-date as possible, it looks like we could be more exact on there, and for that, we apologize. As for your meal, it sounds like everyone enjoyed their dishes, aside from your wife's disappointment with the amount of tuna in her sliders. That said, we... More

Don't leave your valuables on your table here, even for an hour! We have patronized the Mason Jar since my boys were young, and my oldest is now 33. When my two other sons, 31 and 24, wanted to go to lunch together we thought why not the Mason Jar? We had an ok meal, which is what we expected,... More
