We have had several meals at The Mason Jar Cafe and have never had a bad meal. Once you go, you will come back. Great service and atmosphere. The specials are always so good! The prices are reasonable and the quality of the food is awesome. You can get quality homemade soups every day.

My favorite restaurant in the Fort Lauderdale area for good home-cooked meal plus the little upscale dining also.

The menu was varied, thus allowing each person at the table to find something they liked. It is not "Fancy" dining, more along the lines of "home cooking". Flavors were good, quality was very good and we all enjoyed our meals........ in fact, when we departed, each person commented that they wanted to plan another visit for dinner.

My fiancé and I love the mason jar!! We always start with the French onion and tomato soups... Probably two of the best soups I have ever had... For dinner we share the filet topped with blue cheese and a salad... All of the entrees come with your choice of two sides so there is plenty of food! Our favorite... More

Based on many reviews, we opted to try the Mason Jar [folks said it reminded them of good South GA comfort food]. While we did not find it what we think of when we think SGCF, we did enjoy their menu options. I think I would call it gourmet southern with a few homey twists. We did not try the... More

They recently moved locations to a spot around the corner in a cute shopping center. I cannot say enough about the quality of food and how truly delicious it all was. Salads are big with fresh ingredients, sandwiches are amazing. French onion soup is out of this world. Loved the phyllo dough appetizer. Wish I lived closer so I could... More

Third visit, and not disappointed. Food is yummy & fresh, staff friendly, and prices affordable ... perfect combination. My last visit, I ordered the Country crab burger .... real crab meat patty on a kaiser bun w/ 1 side (homemade shoestring fries). The endless ice tea is always being refilled. If you're thinking lunch time, then arrive before noon, as... More

Last Night my friends took me to The Mason Jar for my birthday...i went there to their older site several years ago and was not overly excited, even thought the portions were huge..plenty to eat for 1 more day. But that does not always make for a good restaurant. I noticed then that the chef was using way too much... More
