Yummy dinner

We ate at the Charlotte the first night of our stay. The food was quite good. Not a huge menu but we managed to find some great choices. I was really pleased when they remembered it was daughters birthday from my check in and added a candle to her dessert and sang for her!

This lovely hotel has a great restaurant that offers unique entrées and fantastic desserts. The wines are all produced "locally" (not that there are vineyards in that part of the Sierras!). The mixed drinks also looked pretty unique, though I didn't try any of them.

We only ate here, but the food was so good we came back a second night. A short menu, but very tasty, great service and atmosphere, and the desserts were fabulous.

Firstly this is a good location in Groveland which caters to a little more than the Mom and Pop business. Good selection of local Sierra wines, try the Hechter's, and a small but very enticing menu. We shared the Yam Gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce which was outstanding. The Off the bone short ribs was more than enough accompanied with scalloped... More

The six of us had a meal here, staying on the property (which does earn you a meal discount). The two of us that ordered the BLT were not real satisfied, but the rest felt their meal was excellent. We shared an excellent dessert also. The service was fast and pleasant, and the atmosphere was cozy and welcoming. While there,... More

Had a meal here last summer whilst on an RV holiday in Yosemite with family. The host was extremely welcoming and knew his local wines. A few questions bout our food and preferences and he'd selected just the right wine to accompany our food. There was only one table so I, my sister and brother-in-law sat at the bar whilst... More
