great meal

Tired and hungry from a day in Yosemite, we just wanted to fuel the machine. We drove by the Charles Street Dinner House, made a u-turn and went on in. Looking at the menu we found that it was much closer to fine dining than a burger joint and thought, ok, we're here. Let's eat. And it was great... read more

A great place to eat. We ate the ribs, we were blown away. The service was also excellent. It is a very cute little restaurant.

We arrived this evening at the start of a three day visit to Mariposa & Yosemite. After unpacking our things our host advised us to make it quick if we wanted to eat out as our town 'closes down early' !! We asked for where to go & where to avoid & this came out as one of the 'hits'... More

The best! Anything and everything is outstanding, first class. The Filet is one of my favorites as well as the special BBQ Ribs. You won't leave hungry and don't forget to have hot apple pie with rum sauce - oh so good!

We try to eat here at least once a year-we live out of the area. This year it was our 10yr, so we opted to stay in Mariposa on the way to Yosemite (where we got married). We ate at Charles Wed night- we went to the Ahwahnee on Thursday, then we HAD to come back to Charles Street on... More

My husband and I shared a full rack of baby-back ribs and a large salad. They were delicious and nicely presented. Nice atmosphere and good service.

They had the best Sunday brunch ever. I loved the prime rib it was breaded and the best country potatoes and a Mimosa. Perfect meal. Would love to go back.

Just enjoyed is what I think the best salad I've ever had: steak and spinach. Big chunks of filet mignon, blackened and pink on the inside, were on a bed of fresh spinach, with feta cheese, nuts, cranberries, and a delicious honey-lemon yogurt. Even the garlic bread was not just bread with some butter and garlic spread on it; it... More

Usually a good sign when you have to wait for a table & certainly true here , the Charles Street Dinner House is a great choice during a Mariposa visit , I would recommend booking in advance as we had around a 30 minute or so wait , the line was big for a small town, food was great with... More

We ate here whilst staying in Mariposa, we originally went to a place over the road (Savoury's i think, the place was dead and the waitress walked past us twice whilst we were stood at the door waiting for a table and did not say a word so we walked out and went to Charles St Dinner House).
