What a let down. Before the location changed, it was one of our favorite places to enjoy a great meal. We were so disappointed with every aspect of our visit.

My husband and I And a friend went for dinner. The ambiance inside is very nice. The service was great. We got the chicken pot pie and the meatloaf. Huge portions and very good. The cheesy potatoes were ok. Not very cheesy. Sweet potatoes had an anise spice which I didn't care for.

Food was very good, the Mahi was walnut crusted with caramelized onions& apples and it the biggest and most tender we've ever had. Pork tenderloin medallions was a special and it was moist and tender. Appetizers tried were fries... More

This charming restaurant with a wonderful assortment of interesting, delicious selections to choose from is hidden in a tiny strip mall off US1 and has parking right there. The service was above & beyond our expectations. I had the most delicious tomato soup which was served in a small pot w/cover. I also had a wonderful sandwich of a terrific... More

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.
