Happy stop

We were on a great Saturday afternoon ride and stopped in for a late lunch. We had pulled pork platter, double ribs, steak salad and a chicken Caesar. ALL were great, and I'm fussy. Bartender nice guy and helpful. We shall return.

Went with family (5) . Waited over 20 minutes to get a table which was a good sign. Although when seated noticed 6 empty tables ranging from 2 tops to larger size. Waitress was disinterested almost like she had to be there. No silverware when served app so had to ask another waitress for them. Had very basic food: spaghetti,... More

Although a bit out of our way, the Mason Jar is a great experience. We travel twice a year back and forth from Vermont to Florida. The owner remembered us from a year ago and gave us a nice welcome. As an appetizer, the owner suggested his new recipe for thin-crust pizza and it was super. The ribs were cooked... More

Wings were good. Blue cheese dressing was yummy. Convenient to Fairfield inn and suites. Price for a burger and salad was a little more than I usually pay

I've never written a review before but don't want anyone else to go through what I did. My husband was served a drink that had something suspicious in it.

Jacqueline, what you are saying is extremely serious and concerning. We would never put any type of drug in our drinks and hearing about this is upsetting. If you wouldn't mind giving us a call to discuss this in further detail, we'd appreciate it. (201) 529-2302 Many thanks, Ira & Joel More

This was within a dangerous walk from the Doubletree hotel. No sidewalks from one to the other so I was walking on the road precariously. the food was good and lots of it. MId range price so be prepared to drop a couple dimes for a steak or anything more than a burger but probably worth it.

I used to go to college in the area and we would sometimes stop at the Mason Jar. The food was never terrific, but I kept thinking that it was just a fluke.
