I was staying at the Fairfield inn next door and the front desk suggested I have dinner at Mason Jar as I didn't feel like driving. The BBQ was great as well as the sweet. Potato fries. They included a sauce that was cream cheese with a hint of cinnamon that was divine. Unfortunately, I must agree with another reviewer... More

We met our family at this half way point between our homes this August. The menu looked great and the tea was sweet and yummy. We had BBQ sliders and lobster mac and cheese. We loved the food, but the area it was served in showed a lot of dust in the afternoon light. A good place to eat but... More

Last night my family stopped in to have dinner (8/18//14)- When we were seated the hosts put us at a table that was so tight a sardine couldn't fit in it. I couldn't to the table because I was in a wheelchair. She thought nothing of it and we needed to approach another hostess if we could get another table.... More

Stopped in for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. There were no more than ten tables occupied at that time, but there were adequate servers around. We both ordered from the "special" menu and we waited at least 35 minutes for a simple sandwich and a salad. First of all, I would wonder how long the wait would be... More

Janice, it's truly disappointing to read this review. You shouldn't have to wait 35 minutes for a sandwich and salad, so we want to personally apologize for this. Although it's not an excuse, our service is usually friendly and speedy, so we'd be curious to know when exactly you were in. Please don't hesitate to follow up, as any additional... More

When on a business trip with others you are either prepared to compromise on the choice of restaurants or you will be eating on your own. I have been to Mason Jar a few times (all in 2014) and I have just become super cautious on what I order. Earlier this year I ordered Mac and Cheese, which you don't... More

It's a shame to read that you've become "cautious" when it comes to our menu. We want you to feel confident that everything you order here will deliver, so it sounds like we missed our mark. We can assure you that we make everything fresh in-house. so we're not sure what happened with your mac and cheese. Please know that... More

The Mason Jar is a great place to meet friends and family for a leisurely dinner or drinks.

I went here for my last meal with my friends from Oakland and the food was really good. I ordered a pizza and it was very yummy. I don't think there was anything to dislike about this place.

Went to Mason Jay last night and was surprised with the variety of meals available. Our waiter, Jonathan, was most helpful. His pleasant disposition and guidance made for a great night. The table ordered pulled pork appetizers to Rib eye steaks, and spare ribs to chicken taco salad. Everything was fresh and good tasting and cooked to perfection.
