“Granny's in the kitchen. She loves ya.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

Knotty pine booths nearly filled far after lunch time on a weekday. Generous portions of "Granny's" best chicken fried steak, pickled beets, green bean done right, the list continues. Servers are bustling, attentive and as fast as possible. Great place for very comfortable comfort food from Granny. Remember, Granny knows cookin'; she knows nothing about diet, saturated fat or cholesterol. This is a great place to pretend you know nothing of those either!

“Good but not great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

By appearance alone, you would expect the most perfect comfort foods to be served. The fried chicken is very good but the side dishes are below average. Mashed potatoes taste instant, green beans taste canned with a little ham hock thrown in. The biscuits taste frozen. I was excited to visit this place but left somewhat disappointed.

“Dinner with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

Very cute restaurant. Southern cooking. Large meal portions. Husband had liver and onions and I had hamburger steak. Others had the fried chicken, with each meal you get your choice of three side dishes. Everyone said that their meals were very good except a few said the liver was too thick but other than that was very good. Also served with cornbread muffins which were very good. Very inexpensive meals. On the chalk board they have the specials of the day. And there was a lot to choose from. Water was served in mason jars. Waitress we had very good kept checking on us to see if everything was ok and if we needed any refills on our drinks. They do not serve beer or wine here.

“Local Diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

We had breadfast at the Mason Jar. It was the weekend and there was a small short wait. It is decent country cooking but nothing that made us want to come back. Restaurant is old and needs a lift.

“Easy and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

My family loves the Mason Jar Restaurant. The food is down home country cooking and it's at the top of it's game. Go for the all you can eat fried chicken on Sundays, you won't be disappointed.
