We were greeted by a very friendly hostess who explained the specials. The entire wait staff was great. Food was excellent. Best place in Mariposa.

Normally when my wife and I travel, we never go to the same restaurant twice. This trip we had the great pleasure to dine at the Charles Street Dinner House each of the three nights we stayed in the lovely town of Mariposa,CA. Three things brought us back each night. The fantastic food by Chef Raymond Newman, and our very... More

After a day at Yosemite, we selected this restaurant based on positive comments from both TripAdvisor and Yelp. Our expectations were met! salads were very fresh and the house yogurt/honey/lemon dressing was outstanding. I found the garlic bread a little dry. Our entrees for four were: Rib eye, clam pasta, fried chicken and hangar steak...all were great, especially the hangar... More

We spent the day hiking in Yosemite and were ready for a nice meal. We stopped here and got a table right away. At first they asked if we had reservations but they had tables regardless. I had the night's special of alfredo pasta with steak and my wife had the mussels with angel hair pasta. My wife declared this... More

We stopped here for dinner during our trip to Yosemite. We didn't have to wait for a table but noticed there was a queue 30 mins later. Staff were extremely friendly and very efficient. We had the ribs and fried chicken, which were both amazing and very good value for money. We'll definitely be back!

Walked in and just got a table (strongly recommend booking ahead). Ambience, service and food top notch in this cozy, unpretentious restaurant. Had the filet mignon, a ny strip sirloin, 2 glasses of really good Fat Tire beer and a decent glass of sauvignon blanc for $88 which included soup or salad, 2 coffees and a free desert ((courtesy of...

After the four couples from TN enjoyed a day in Yosemite National Park, we arrived at Charles Street Restaurant for dinner. I had checked Trip Advisor for recommendations and this restaurant was rated #1. We went & were thrilled we did! I had the special of the day - halibut, and my husband had the ravioli. The halibut was prepared... More

Ate here twice during our stay in Mariposa visiting Yosemite. Good quality food and plenty of it. Made very welcome by the hostess and in particular our server, Sheri, who remembered us on our second night. A good relaxed ambience. Would highly recommend eating here.
