Reasonable but nothing outstanding

A popular, noisy restaurant serving standard fare and a menu with a large variety of items. Food and prices are reasonable although nothing is outstanding. Servers are young, busy and disengaged. Sometimes a band plays, the place fills up and this might be the highlight of the evening.

I ate here after a memorial service for my sister in law at Ramapo College. She had hung out here while attending school. I had the steak sandwich and it was absolutely delicious. It practically melted in my mouth. The kitchen did a great job serving the 12 of us who arrived after the kitchen had closed to pay tribute... More

I have eaten there many times over the past 8-10 years. The service has always been friendly, and the food good. I have always been there for lunch with a colleague or more. Menu has some variety, and the bar is usually busy which is a good sign.

Well this place has sure gone down hill from the last time I was there. The lobster bisque soup was the best part of the meal. The server was very nice and efficient.

The ribs were exceptional too! Pulled apart so gently. Max had the bartender fix me up a most delicious beverage. The atmosphere is cozy, clean and comfortable! Stop in, when you are near!

The Mason Jar is a wonderful neighborhood place to go. The food is fresh and prepared well. Their home made pizzas are fabulous. Their dinner platters are served as in a four star restaurant. They have amazing burgers as well. The blueberry cobbler dessert is out of this world!

I like a good Cob salad which they had. It was large, filling and tasty. They also have a large selection of grilled meats and fish. A good place to take friends and enjoy the atmosphere.

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.
