Dog tired from our trip to Yosemite my wife and I stopped at Charlotte's to eat dinner. We barely made the 8:30 pm service closing time, but the food was excellent. We had a beef soup and nice salad with fruits in it. The cost was pretty high, about $40 total with coffee and tea, but considering the location in... More

Quaint, historical, trendy, not impressed by the food and a bit too pricy for what we got. Service was good and very friendly. I can now say I've been there. The hotel has a lot of history and local lore and like many old west hotels its a great representation of its time. They did upgrade the restaurant and the... More

Actually they were pretty good but I thought it was amusing to have tater tots at a restaurant that's trying to be high-end. The chef is trying to be creative and appears to have a sense of humor. I'm good with that. The food was good but since they are charging pretty high prices, it needs to be awesome. If... More

There is a small dining area in this B&B. We enjoyed our meal here the first night we stayed here. Although we didn't enjoy our stay as much, the food was good but tiny portions and not great value either. I had the fish and my friend had the beef. I probably will not go back.

This place was so good that we went back again. Our first night was just for dinner - which was excellent. Imaginative food and friendly staff. The next night we went back for a couple of small plates and a few rounds of trivia. It was great fun, and again the food was good.

Three couple went to try the food prepared by the new chef. The food was excellent but we made the mistake of going on a Friday. It was so loud, we couldn't have a conversation while enjoying our dinner. GO, but don't go on a weekend unless you don't mind noise.
