The Mason Jar has a great food selection that has a southern flair. The waitstaff and owner are very friendly and congenial. It is quite often you will see the owner/chef sitting with a patron creating a relaxed atmosphere. He also make tremendous desserts. Ask...More

I see potential here, but after reading my review (I'm very picky) you may be left wondering why. My wife and I, having lived in the south for a couple of decades combined (and I'm talking AL, TX, KY, VA and NC - not NJ)...More

This restaurant is part of the Barter Business Unlimited network so we decided to try it. Very small with not much seating. People extremely friendly. Hush puppies were delicious as was the honey butter. Corn bread was dry and the grits underneath my chidken breast...More

When it comes to breakfast in Bristol, your options for good food and service are very limited. There are many diners in Bristol, but they all seem to share the same idea: cheap ingredients, greasy and poorly presented. Mason Jar tries to break away from...More
