Mariposa has retained some "old west" charm, and Charles Street Dinner House is its exclamation point! Excellent food and friendly, efficient service. All salad dressings are house-made and are fresh and delicious. Fresh -baked bread was great. Two of our party of 4 had steaks and two had ribs. Everything was excellent, and portions were plentiful, so we had no... More

We ate in this restaurant on our second night in Mariposa. The food was good, the staff was kind, so we decided to go back also the following evening. This time our waitress was so concerned with us being italians that she felt the need to circle the tip suggestions with a pen when she brought the bill, plus just... More

The wait staff were very pleasant and courteous. The food was fab, I had the chicken lignuini and it was so so good. I would go there again!!! They were very prompt and yet so busy. While I think Savourys was excellent I think I would choose Charles Street over them because the food was a bit more tasty and... More

I recently celebrated my 50th birthday with my wife Anna at the Charles Street Dinner House in Mariposa, California. The staff were great and really made my birthday feel that much more special. The Rib-Eye steak I had was the best I have ever had! If you are looking for great food, a friendly staff that is spot-on with their... More

We visited twice during our stay, the first time on a Saturday, second the following day on a Sunday. On the Saturday night, the hostess at the front of house was excellent, telling us about the dinner house, all the food available and even helped us with a good choice of wine, of which unfortunately we can't get back here...

Ate here one night while staying at a local B&B in Mariposa and would highly recommend it. Relaxed, family atmosphere, slick service and excellent food. I had the steak salad with cranberries - delicious- and they make their own garlic bread which was also great.

We ate here as a family on two occasions during a 3 night stay in the Mariposa area and on both nights we had really great meals with very friendly service and at a very reasonable cost. The ribs were a big hit with the kids, with the meat falling off the bone. The burger is huge, but tasty, and... More

This is a very good choice in town. They do an excellent job with a small place to serve your meal. If I lived there I will be a regular.

Coming from NC, I know good BBQ. These were the best ribs I have ever had. Fall-off the bone tender and not overly sauced (they did have more sauce on the side). Everyone else enjoyed their meals too, especially the Italian ones. We did not have reservations and the service was a little slow (they warned us it would be),... More
