I remember eating at The Mason Jar when I was a kid and I'm glad to take my kids there now. It's a nice locally-owned restaurant, not part of a chain (not that that's a big deal, but if that's what you're looking for...). There's plenty of food and quite a variety at that. While the food is good the more memorable part is the eager and enthusiastic service and the down-home feeling of the restaurant itself. I'm not sure the decor has changed since when my parents took me there as a kid but that's actually part of the charm of this place. We don't make it to the Springs that much but when we do we make it a point to stop by The Mason Jar.
