The food always have great taste and the business is also clean. I've read through the post and everyone agrees about quality of food. The post concerning the use of tobacco in my eyes is informational and personally I liked to know these things. It was stop be from eating at the Mason Jar but I didn't see the person bash the place just post observation. Tobacco free means tobacco free including any kind of dip.

well i will say this i have been there yeah the food is great but he does dip he does yell he also breaks rules and laws paying a chef under the table (TAXES) cooking outback on a grill which is never cleaned lets his children run around in the kitchen (safety issue) the point is is that we all have things to go by and when we dont we pay the price not to mention when he caters to one whatever is left over he takes to the next catering and so on... thats not right someone else already paid for it but it is ok because he is someone special. has 2 chefs that come from the greenbrier and brin g there cooking skills there i mean how does the hotel feel about this . dont think they will like it they pay you well enough to be their cook not someone across the street too, well go eat the get sick complain and keep eatin his spit enjoy!!!!!!!

"Lives Around Fools"------>u made some good issues and never thought about using the grill to cook food without being inspected by health department. i heard some men in black paid him a visit one time and he took it out on his staff and no before some1 says it is rumor--WRONG--the person actually worked there. why cant he keep workers? let all his fans have their moments because leopards never change their spots. heck maybe we all should go out in middle of town and put a shrine up for him because he seems so angelic--whatever--just bc the food is good doesnt mean the person behind is. 2 crazy for colored television.

To the owners of the mason jar...you better watch your money because you've got an employee that's been suspected for stealing/scamming money on another job in the past. Might surprise you who it was!

The food is good for people who don't know bad food when they eat it. It is all frozen and pre-packaged tasting. I don't mind eating that crap if I'm paying for crap, but it is expensive....for crap. Nothing I have ever had there had been good, and I have been on several different occasions with different groups of people. For those who like it, great! I wish I had somewhere in WSS that I would enjoy eating besides Granny's breakfast.

My family and I used to be regulars at the Mason Jar. The owners are extremely nice, and at first the food was excellent. As time has gone on, however, things have gone downhill dramatically! The last time we were in there, the dinner buffet was going on so we decided to try it out. EVERYTHING on that buffet was cold AND old. The fried chicken tasted as though it had been there for a week and the beef brisket was way too salty. I could understand a buffet not being perfect if it was at the end of the shift, but this was at 5:30-6:00PM! In addition to the bad food, two waitresses were yelling at eachother, and were being very unprofessional. On top of that, a barefoot child was running in and out of the kitchen and into the dining room...It is highly unlikely that my family will ever return to this establishment!!!

the food is really quite goood, and the owners are very nice. never an issue of cleanliness and the place they ran before was good as well. some issues with the wait staff...some of the girls just don't put out the effort they should , and need trained better in customer service (they forget little details, like empty glasses-on the other side, they have a few gentlemen servers who are really on top of things. have noticed every once in while a bit of difference depending on who's in the kitchen, but that happens in any situation!

ps-granny's for breakfast being listed as good food? yikes sorry, but $8 veggie omlettes that have canned mushrooms, and processed american cheese are not my idea of good food. the mason jar does have items that are worth the $...the salads, and burgers are great deals and not pre-packed, and i am pretty sure the soups are mostly homemade, or at least they wer when it they served them at the grill n chill. i don't think they advertise as "gourmet", and you are getting a lot of prepakaged and canned foods at most establishment these days...from ruby tuesdays and applebees to to other kitchens that aren't what you would consider the "canned" type. rarely are any buffets "great". usually, not even good, as a rule of thumb.

I beg to differ. I have had the opportunity to see the chef cutting FRESH steaks, unloading FRESH seafood and smoking brisket. I have also witnessed him cutting up FRESH chicken and using his homemade buttermilk batter to fry. NOT CRAP, NOT PRE-PACKAGED or FROZEN products. No, I do not work there...but I have had to make deliveries there and have been able to view the kitchen from the back office (by the way, for those questioning the cleanliness: kitchen was spotless). Not many of today's restaurants, including Granny's, cuts their own fresh meats. I have seen the pride they take in the quality of their food. I have heard guests at catered functions rave about the food. This is the best restaurant in town, hands down!

The Mason Jar is definitely a good place to eat. It would have to rank pretty high in my book for this area. As far as the owners go, they are very good people. And the dip, if this really occurred, yuck. Although I have trouble conceiving this accusation. The small child..get over it. Now I will agree, running barefoot out of the kitchen could be dangerous for her-but as a small business owner sometimes that is the beauty of it all. The opportunity to succeed financially, as well as be parents to your own children instead of sending them away to child care everyday. Some of the wonders of small town living are the mom and pop establishments that are sadly dying away as I sit and type this post. The food there is fresh, the meat does not come frozen. Order one of their burgers and you will see. A huge patty of freshly ground beef, not a frozen patty consisting of ample other ingredients. The chicken strips will be cut and breaded, not the mystery nuggets from our over used fast food chains consisting of 20-30 ingredients...think of this the next time you shove a super sized value meal down your trap and chase the 2000 calories and preservatives with a diet coke. Yes, the wait staff could be better...as could almost all of our work force anymore. No one tries anymore, excellent customer service is dead. It is the worthless attitudes of humanity anymore, take, take, and take, some more-never slowing down to give a little back. Smile a little, enjoy what there is to be had. Quit damning the world for self gratification.

If you had read a little more carefully I did say the kitchen was an unsafe place for a child to be. With your fountain of information I assume you USED to be an employee? And by the way I have been in their kitchen, it is not dirty. Also, I forget to cover my grill sometimes, so I have probably eaten my fair share of dog saliva. I know the steak didn't just come off a cow out back, unfortunately it is against health regulations to sell meat that is that fresh. As for going across the street, I have and will again thank you.

wow. seems like area peeps can't stand competition. at least that is how it looks from here. hair dresser bashing, tearing down of eating establishments.....seems to be a spa city theme---for shame. appears to me that perhaps the combo of disgruntled employees and business propieters that don't feel confident in their work or food will hold its own like to use this forum as a place to smear the few businesses in this area. make it better, do it better, whatever- if you have a complaint, your actions will speak louder than petty words.

WE eat here every so often.... food is always pretty good, but I noticed that the last two times I ordered a Reuben I was disappointed with it, smaller and not as well put together as in the past, and my friend did not particularly enjoy the soup the "chef" had made.....some type of potato, I think....she said it was week and needed more body. That being said, every burger, salad and "fried chicken" special we have evenr had has been good, as well as the other random items we have ordered.

My wife and I went in there for lunch one day after getting the afternoon alone away from the children. We always have heard good things about the place so we decided to go there. I certainly was not impressed. Yes the place is a nice atmosphere but first of all the very young waitress was too interested in flirting with the much older gentleman who I'm assuming was a waiter or busboy (as a father it make me ill to see them flirting like they were with such a big age difference (she looks 16 and he looks 40) two: the food was over cooked I had the lobster tail with the steak a.k.a surf and turf and my wife commented that her mash potatoes taste like instant potatoes and were cold and clumpy the last and final thing was after just my wife and I eating our bill was $72. I am not a person that cares to pay good money but I expect a good meal, good service, and not witness kiddy porn while I'm trying to eat. I wanted to take my wife out for a nice afternoon lunch and not impressed with the place. Definately will not be going back.

I agree. I've been in there a couple of times the older girl is great but if you don't get her then plan on being thirsty and getting attitude.
