Mason's a mediocre neighborhood joint
Super happy hour. You can drink for 2 hours at Mason's and they'll end up owing you money...A dozen raw with some of their delicious onion rings, and maybe one of their Cuban sandwiches occasionally...The broiled oysters are exactly how the OP described, but for some reason I enjoy a 1/2 dz of the broiled to compliment my dz raw sometimes...That's about it for me and Mason's food.
I always go to the bar area at Mason's because I like to be close to the liquor....And the bar staff does seem to have a problem not only being attentive, but actually being behind the bar waiting to serve you. Plus they stand at the register with their backs turn to you and are oblivious to customers. So you have to sometimes yell/cuss at them to get more liquor.
Updated restrooms-- men's room is ridiculous
A AC that can keep up in the summer
A new ceiling that's not disgusting
A cook that can make most of their menu items tasty
Employees that don't have a deer in the headlights look
Also, with the new Woman's Hospital nuclear power plant right next door to Mason's, my pee color is now fluorescent goldenrod.
