Mason Jar Ratings and Reviews
Nice ambience for casual dining or happy hour. Big space. But what comes out of the kitchen needs some work. We went early for lunch. The 1st customers of the day, so it's not like the kitchen staff was busy and rushed. Food was ok. Appetizers a little too salty for my foodie friends. Pulled pork sandwich was very dry for all 4 people that ordered it. We drowned it in sauce.
from the moment i called to say i was running late,,until we left
they don't really care that you're there, just try to push drinks on you
food was OK, my pulled pork was cold, portions generous
bbq turkey was cold, too
beans & sprouts luke warm,
we sat at a table, our waitress left mid meal and we saw her when we left flirting with a table of guys
we had to flag somebody down to pay check, next time I want BBQ, i'll go back to Virgil's or Hill Country
The food was very good. The ribs were very good. They were better than most of the BBQ places I have been to in the city. The Fried chicken needed a little more flavor but was very crisp and crunchy. The cole slaw was very good! I also had the pork egg roll and that was great! Good flavor with a great crunch. The service was a touch slower than I would have liked especially since it was not busy. All in all a good experience. I will go there again.
This visit didn't go as previous visits have went. I'm not sure what the problem was, but the service was frustratingly slow. Other times I have been here have been a lot better. I'm hoping this is part of the exception and not the rule. I will give Mason Jar another chance...just not anytime soon.
This place is more of a bar with a good food menu. They have interesting southern options included fried pickles and pulled pork - more a novelty for those of us in NYC. If you are looking for a meal that will change your life, walk on by. If you are looking for a decent meal with a large selection of bourbons and great service, this is perfect! Their brunch menu is decent enough with unlimited drinks - sit at the bar!
Bustling bar and restaurant with seating that can be slightly tight & booth style.
After work type crowd. Food was good but came very quickly. We would have loved to have tried the Brisket but it wasn't ready which suggests it's prepared and cooked onsite.
I would go again if in the neighbourhood craving some good BBQ.
Food was pretty good. We got several different items from the menu and everyone seemed to enjoy their entres. The mac and cheese side was awesome! Service was great. The only thing that detracted slightly from the experience was that the music was so loud. It was hard to have a conversation without yelling.
Heard great things about the food at Mason Jar and decided to give it a shot. Taylor was great! Really friendly and helpful. We had the fried pickles and pulled pork eggrolls (house specialty) to start. They came out quickly and even though fried, were not greasy as i was expecting. very tasty. For dinner, I decided on the fried chicken and could not have been happier. it was cooked perfectly and the breading had just a slight kick. I also had the brussels sprouts on Taylor's suggestion (not usually a fan) and was pleasantly surprised (the bacon made all the difference). My friends raved about the mason burger and short rib grilled cheese. I'll def be trying one of those the next time. and trust me, there WILL be a next time!
Liked the food at this place, but the music was blasting to the point where my friends and I had to shout to be heard. Seeing as I was in the dining area and not at the bar, I was hoping the music wouldn't be loud enough to try to mimic a club, but I was wrong. The food was iffy: one of my friends ordered a pulled pork sandwich and ended up sending it back because the meat tasted off, while I ended up dumping one of the wings from the order we picked up because it was definitely turning and sour. The beer selection was pretty okay. It's worth going here if you work in the area and want to knock a couple back before the ride home.
Great service and great atmosphere. Very well taken care of American/bbq joint with plenty of space. Steak and eggs was good.. sevice was excellent compared to most american/bbq places you would go to in the city. I want to come back to try the smoked turkey.
The Mason Jar is a pretty good spot for burgers, ribs, or brick-oven pizza, but the food is not particularly impressive beyond that. We live local to the restaurant so I have been there several times through the years. Their Sunday buffet brunch (not offered in the summer) is worth a look. On this particular evening, I had a chopped tuna salad which was strange at best. The people in my group did better with a burger and a vegetable panini. Drinks are served in mason jars - which is pretty cute. They had no record of my Open Table reservation when we arrived- which I found to be a bit annoying. Overall, an OK place for very casual dining.
Good food, great service. Pretty reasonable prices for dinner. Only complaint was that it was extremely loud however partially our fault as we did not realize there was a basketball game playing at the time of our reservation. Overall, glad we tried this place.
Was surprised to find decent BBQ outside my native South. Brisket was done perfectly and pulled pork was tasty. Too little sauce can on the sandwiches. Requested additional sauce which kicked up the flavor a good bit. Definitely ask for additional sauce. Server was attentive and very knowledgeable of the diverse beer selection.
