I guess, sometimes it was tasty restaurant for tourist traffic heading to Yosemite. But time is gone. Food is fine, servis reasonable, but the design is old fashioned and need some cleaning and repair. If you are hungry and you have reservation :) it's fine, but don't expect something outstanding.

We had a fantastic meal there, the steak was incredible and the onion soup really nice too. The place is very cute and decorated with a lot of detail - great for a romantic meal. It was absolutely packed and people were waiting outside to get a table - definately make a reservation if you want to come here. Despite... More

We've been to the Charles Street Dinner House twice this summer, once as a family and once just as a couple, and really enjoyed it both times. It has historic charm, and great food. The burgers are simply outstanding - and enormous! - and the onion rings are not to miss. I wouldn't say it is necessarily the best restaurant... More

This is the place to go for a nice relaxing lunch. Your meal will be prepared from scratch and served with a "WOW" presentation. If you are a good eater, they serve the biggest, juicy hamburger I shared with my daughter. Good service/Great food.

We were recommended this dinner house by our hotel (best western Mariposa). Even though the place was crowded (which is always a good sign !) the staff managed to give us a table. They are all extra friendly women, and one of them speaks French, Italian and Spannish fluently. For those of you who seek a genuine western old times... More

A really delicious meal. The steak & lobster dish was amazing. For such a nice place I would have expected a clean table cloth for each new client. They just wiped it. Even a paper cloth change on top would be better. Apart from that - great.

After a morning of ziplining at Yosemite Ziplines and Adventures, Charles Street restaurant as recommended to us. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table. Lots of cold water was brought to us which was like heaven after ziplining in 100+ heat. When the waitress came to take our orders we had a few questions regarding the sandwiches and... More

This was an over all excellent experience. I had a steak dinner that was cooked as requested and a quality piece of steak that was tender and great flavor and portions are decent. Service was pleasant and efficient. I really enjoyed my visit to Charles.Street and will return., This is one of the better restaurant I have found in Mariposa... More

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
