We've been to the Mason Jar several times and have never been disappointed. It's just "down home cookin'!" Their meatloaf is really good. We went there for St.Patrick's day and their corned beef and cabbage was delicious....and we had plenty left for leftovers for the next day. If you are in Ft.

After living in Ft Lauderdale for four years and eating out often, I am happy to have found another great option for good food, friendly service and great prices. The country style dining room is reminiscent of a roadside restaurant in New England.

This place has great homemade food. From burgers, to soups, to fish and chicken everything is tasty. Try their lobster bisque on Fridays. It's a must!

A cozy restaurant with great home style comfort food. We had the meatloaf, Mahi Mahi and short ribs...all delicious and plentiful. Try the desert sampler, but get multiple forks! Great service in a friendly atmosphere.

I live in Fort Lauderdale and consider the Mason Jar to be one of the best. They are popular with locals and regularly have a wait time. The atmosphere is simple and comfortable. The staff is as friendly and welcoming as can be. I consider this to be southern comfort food with class. Fried green tomatoes, rack of lamb, homemade... More

Lovely dinner with friends. Everyone enjoyed their meal. They are know for their chicken pot pie and it looked awesome. I had a swordfish special dish that was amazing. I will definitely return again.

Thank Sidronnie
