On a long weekend away, the Mason Jar was the perfect place to hang out. Within staggering distance of the hotel in which I was staying, and live bands two of the three nights I was there, it was perfect to let down what's left of my hair and relax. The tap room is in the center of the building,... More

It's a nice restaurant, been there for years. Unfortunately, on Saturday night at 5:30, it seems they could only bring out cold food from the kitchen. I ordered a pizza, and it came very much ahead of the other 3 dinner guests at our table. I get that it cooks quicker, but the waiter could have alleviated this problem. On... More

We made an overnight stop in Mahwah to get an early start into Manhattan the next day. We picked The Mason Jar from a mapping app because it was close. What a pleasant happenstance! It's a large restaurant, but divided into 4 dining areas in addition to the bar, so background noise was acceptably low. The menu is extensive, all... More

We come here for lunch often during work. They have an extensive menu including brick oven pizza. The choices for salads and burgers are great.

Happen to run into this place because were staying in the Fairfield Inn next door. Turned out great. Excellent bbq for 2. Even had leftover and took them to our fridge and then warmed them up next day for lunch. People are friendly...servers and guests. Great time with 2 toddlers and a 3month old!

Three of us had a Trail Conference business lunch. My squash soup was perfectly made, and my vegetable wrap was fresh, generous in size and each vegetable cooked to its own perfection. Tables are far apart and so even though the place was half full at 12:00 noon, and filled more as we ate and worked, we had no trouble... More

Stopped in the Mason Jar for quick lunch. We were seated right away. Our server was very friendly. The chilli is very good. I had the cheeses teak sandwich and my wife had a bbq burnt end sandwich. Both were good and just the right size. It's not a bad place to eat and worth the stop.

Went in to watch Football on Sunday afternoon. Had to wait with no host to be found, then I was stuck in a corner with no TV view and a row of filthy tables full of dishes and trash all over the floor. Employees were just standing around and chatting. I left.

This is a little strange review! Don't be such a grouch...all you had to do is say please seat where there are no dirty tables, & I can see the TV...The host would have easily complies... Or ask to see a manager.... I think you just might have been looking for a problem... Best, Ira & Joel More

Wine by the glass is a four ounce pour & less-12.00 each Burger was below our expectation; crumbly roll fell apart Cobb salad average Onion soup light on cheese Dinner took awhile although not busy. New girl coming out of the kitchen dropped it all. That can happen, I guess.
