Better than a chain and had a great atmosphere for family of four. Food was good and serving sizes were appropriate. Good value for money.

My husband and I frequented this place awhile back almost regularly, because we live fairly close and we enjoy live music. We were so disappointed on our last visit, though. We ordered a pizza and salad. The service was terrible and they must have gotten a new chef because the pizza was awful. There are too many good pizzas in... More

This is very much a college beer joint, with an extensive beer menu and hamburger and fries menu. The food menu is much more expensive than that and many adults can be found there specially at lunchtime. Fairly clean, with an interesting decor and very friendly service. I am often in the area at the trail conference and eat there... More

I have been to Mason Jar several times as I travel to the area regularly for work and usually stay at the hotel in the adjacent parking lot. This is a very casual restaurant with a relatively pleasant atmosphere. I will say that this place gets very busy after 5pm. That is not necessarily a bad thing (business is great,... More

A group of four of us, up to seven or eight some times, search the area for the best BBQ. Together, we've tried about 6-7 BBQ specialists.

My wife and I have family in the South, so we've had southern bbq many times. We tried Mason Jar's bbq offerings and they were just ok. The service was good, but the prices were a little high. May go again, may not.
