“Nice venue”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We enjoyed a pleasant dinner at the Mason Jar. The service was fine and the entrees were well-prepared. The fried green tomatoes appetizer was delicious as was my spinach & pine nut ravioli. The mahi-mahi was okay, but not wonderful. We enjoyed the ambiance of this cozy restaurant.

“Delightfully homey!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

After coming here several times, I am happy to report that The Mason Jar is consistently good and a warm, friendly place to dine. The two of us came twice for dinner....we started with salad and fried pickle appetizer...crunchy long wide slices of pickles with a light, tempura-style crust, served with a mild creamy dip. We have ordered the short ribs (huge, saucy, piquant), the walnut crusted mahi with apples and onions (prefect texture with crunchy bite, but a bit bland, the half duckling with honey( perfectly cooked, flavorful, nice balance of sweet and salty) plus sides of corn pudding (sort of like corn bread and fresh corn, delicately sweet), Mac and cheese (comforting and mild) and Brussels sprouts leaves with lots of pistachios (savory, sweet and nutty), green bean casserole (like Mom used to make...yum!). While there, we saw gorgeous fried chicken, pork chops and ravioli. Looking forward to trying these sometime. A really nice place, moderately expensive $70 for two for salad/appetizer and two main courses at $26 and $24 with one glass of wine...but free refills on iced tea! Try it...you will like it!

“Nice Find on Federal”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Really enjoyed the homey atmosphere of this inviting restaurant on Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. The menu's focus is on 'comfort' food and they deliver!! The salad was fresh and crisp with a wonderful house dressing. I ordered a special seafood entree (snapper) and it was outstanding!! There are many 'sides' to choose from e.g. macaroni and cheese, roasted brussel sprouts, glazed carrots, etc..I ordered the carrots and they were very good. My mother was with me and she had delicious, crispy shoestring fries. She also ordered the salmon and loved it.
We didn't have room for dessert!! Very lovely!

“delicious comfort food!!!”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

We went on a Sunday evening & it was perfect comfort food. HUGE portions.....we had between us southern fried chicken with delicious green bean casserole, a big salad & delicious grouper. Excellent desserts & it was very inexpensive for the amount & quality of the food. Not a buzzing place as quite a lot of elderly eat there but the food is good if you are looking for something homely & quiet.
