I was very happy to join 5 of my friends for dinner here this week. None of us had been here for years and we were all very delighted with the variety offered on the menu. We all raved about our meals. The staff was all super friendly. I was very impressed with the way they accommodated me with my... More

With the downpour in Yosemite, we were part of the population that had to abandon the park as the winter storm was looking like it could flood the park! Our disappointment, however, was quickly abated by the Charles Street Dinner House. We decided to stop for the night in Mariposa, a sleepy gold rush town an hour outside of the... More

The food was okay and our server was efficient. Our issue was the hostess. We have a Spanish last name (reservations) and the comment made upon our arrival "Oh you look like a Espinosa (not our last name)", after realizing that my daughters boyfriend (white) was not me. We also received uncomfortable stares from other patrons of the restaurant. The... More

This little spot is rustic and has a home feel to it. If you don't have time to wait you might want to try somewhere else. Our wait wasn't bad but it's because everything is freshly made, the way it should be. Nothing about our meal tasted as if it had been frozen for days. We had the BBQ Bacon... More

Having dined here many times, I looked for to a visit upon my latest trip to work in Mariposa. The rack was great, the service was cordial and the ladies were friendly as usual.

We were in town for Thanksgiving weekend and booked for Friday night. It was busy, and the hostess was very apologetic that we were slightly delayed in being seated, diners were taking longer than usual, no big deal. Very good service from all the staff. We both had the French Onion soup to start which was very tasty, a good... More

Had dinner here based on the motel front desk suggestion. The place was packed but we had made a reservation so we were seated right away. Good friendly service. I had the pasta special of the night and my son had a steak. Both were very good. We were pleasantly surprised to find a good dinner in a small town... More
