A friend told me about The Mason Jar Cafe in Fort Lauderdale, and said it was a good place for nice, home, cooked meal. I was not impressed at all. Tonight's special was a 12 oz prime rib for $25.95 which included either two sides or a salad. I chose a Cesar salad which was small and had the most bland Cesar dressing I ever tasted. The withered lettuce made it even look ugly. My 12 oz prime rib tasted good but it had about 5 oz of fat around it. The atmosphere was pleasant but I know many comparable restaurants which serve much better food for the same or lower price. Sometimes "Home Cooked Food" can be a lost leader to make you think you're getting something really good, but I've been in many homes where the food isn't good at all. "The Mason Jar" falls into this category for me.
