Stayed in Mariposa for 2 nights three weeks ago and went for dinner both nights at the Charles Street dinner house. The first night we were greeted warmly by the staff and showed to a lovely table where the waitress took us through the menu and all the specials that were on offer. She warned us... read more

Great local restaurant. The food and service were both above average. Be prepared to wait, which is always a good sign!

We ate at Charles Street two nights in a row and if they have had breakfast we'd do that too. It has a staff which make you feel like your at your moms place!! Nice cooking and friendly faces! First night we had the pasta Alfredo. The steak in this dish was so tender, first time yet this trip. Second... More

The food in general was bland, heavy and overpriced. Salads were so-so, dressing was heavy and not very flavorful. Steaks were good - if you go here I would recommend getting a steak. On the plus side we had young children and the place was friendly and accommodating to them - so definitely kid friendly.

My husband and I were staying at the Comfort Inn at Mariposa (nice hotel) and decided to check out the village down the road. We stopped at Charles Street Dinner House for some dinner. Excellent food and services. I am quite a critical person as I enjoy eating healthy, and I could not complain about anything. The place was extremely... More

We had a group of 12 people and were accommodated with hospitality and grace. Food was fine, nothing super special, but the atmosphere and service made up for any possible shortcomings

I've been traveling the United States for 2,5 months and this is one of the best meals so far. The french onion soup was very flavorful and the filet mignon was perfectly cooked. I would definitely recommend a visit here if you're in the area, as both the service and the food is excellent.

Great place to go in Mariposa for dinner. Make sure to make reservations as they get full very quickly with people waiting outside. Good portions with good options - especially for dessert. This along with Savoury's seem to be the best places for dinner in Mariposa.

We had dinner in this place, the hotel made a reservation for us. We had good food, the portions are very big. If you are 4 I suggest to order for 3.
