Loved this small quaint restaurant in beautiful Mariposa. The staff was friendly, the food was great and it was conveniently located on the main street. Call ahead for reservations as they get very busy especially during tourist season.

Amazing food - the ribs were melt-in-your-mouth! We called at about 730 and had a table by 8pm, skipping the line of people waiting outside. Can see why it's so popular, food and service was great and the decor makes your feel like you could...More

I would suggest making reservations for a large group. But you can walk right in without and they will seat you as soon as they can.
