Ok

We dined there after a late arrival (we stayed next door at the Fairfield Inn). There was a reasonable choice. We enjoyed the Mongolian beef though slightly too sweet. The burger was nice and thick. It was a bit noisy but you can purchase your own music at the jukebox which was fun. The waiter was... read more

Went to the Mason Jar on a Friday night and it was very busy. I was shown to a table which was in a fairly dark and dingy area off from the main bar area. Menu was extensive and I went for a nice steak. Overall, good service, average food.

If you staying at the Fairfield Inn Mahwah NJ you don't have to drive anyplace to have a good meal. The Madon Jar is just across the parking lot and has an interesting selection ofeal options. I enjoyed the Mongolian Stir Fry. My wife had the Taco Salid. Both were good and more than adequate in size.

We're happy to hear your server was friendly, however, we were disappointed to read about the rest of your experience, Haylie. It sounds like we were having a really off night, and we wish we would have known you were so underwhelmed with the food. If you ever give us another shot, please let us know if anything tastes off... More

The Mason Jar has excellent menu choices - ribs, chicken, steaks, burgers, salads, etc. Drinks are served in a mason jar - nice touch. Service is good - but sometimes can be slow.

We're so happy you enjoyed our menu choices! Thanks so much for dropping us a line. Service can be slower at busier times like any restaurant, but we'd be happy to recommend times that aren't as busy. Now, we look forward to seeing you again the next time you stop by! Best, Ira & Joel More

The place is big and it's very rustic. The Sunday brunch is well worth it. It comes with a free glass of champagne or juice. The brunch has all kinds of dishes, seafood salads, hot dishes, cold cuts, salmon, breakfast dishes, bread, muffins, etc., the variety of dishes is tremendous; they can make you any kind of omelet.

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.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed the band, and if you ever visit again, we'd love to chat about your tastes to find something on our menu you'd love. Many thanks! Ira & Joel More
