Great tasting and well displayed food in an open hotel Bar and restaurant. Excellent service and nice young energetic couple that operates/owns the hotel.Stay there and enjoy but watch the steps inside and out. We are going back

I'm not sure exactly how to rank this restaurant. It was definitely the best dinner restaurant in Groveland and was very pleasant. However, the food was pleasant but I would certainly not drive out of my way to eat here.

This restaurant just outside of Yosemite is just amazing. The food is different and delicious and the staff is really wonderful!

We were staying down the road and the Blackberry Bed and Breakfast (amazing!) and this place was recommended for dinner. We ended up here twice for dinner (the other night we ate in the park-what a let down). We had quite a few tapas, a cocktail and I had some wine. It is very boutique-y food, and very yummy. We...

We snuck in just before 6.00pm to make sure we could sit at our favorite table, the wait staff smiled and welcomed us. I enjoyed a couple of glasses of Hops of Wrath while Isobel stuck to her favorite Rim Fire Red, a red wine blend from Yosemite Cellars. We had an excellent meal sharing an innovative salad consisting of... More

Arrived having driven up coast from LA and en route through Yosemite to L Tahoe. Having eaten at highly recommended restaurants from Santa Barbara, Cambria and Carmel (and underwhelmed at each), we were delighted with Charlottes... a great improvement over the standard US menu. Well done. For any other traveling Australian foodies who know good food when they taste it... More

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.
