We were wandering down the main street of Mariposa wondering where to eat and decided to try here. It was around 6.30pm so we just walked in and had no trouble getting a table. The service was efficient and friendly and the meal was excellent though a little pricey compared to similar restaurants.

Late dinner after a full day in Yosemite, took a recommendation from other travelers on our bus. The outside was in line with the feeling of the town, an old mining village. The inside is decorated with the theme of a country cozy saloon. The servomechanism and the food were outstanding, we had a fettuccine special, lemon chicken and fried... More

The atmosphere is very friendly and gives a sense of eating at a friends house. The service was good and the owner took the time to wait on us herself and go over the history of the area and of the building that now i is her restaurant. Food was very good, veggies were fresh, French fries are home made... More

We stopped in Marisopa on our tour. We were recommended this restaurant by the lodge we were staying at. We were made very welcome and taken to our seats where we were advised of the specials of the evening. The waitress took our order and she was also very friendly. Our meal was delicious and the service was excellent .... More

What a magnificent dinner! Everything was done with class and very delicious. We ate here two nights in a row. The swordfish was perfect! Veal Scallopini was excellent.

The Charles Street Dinner House was recommended by our hotel (the Mariposa Inn). (Tip- our asking for a good dinner recommendation resulted in a reference to this place and a coupon for a free glass of wine). A bit more formal/ traditional sit-down dinner place than some of our other meals in Mariposa, but we had a good meal and... More

Ate here on a Sunday evening. Hubby ordered prime rib. At $32 he expected a melt in your mouth cut of meat. Unfortunately, even with the steak knife, he had to work at cutting it because of the gristle. Chewing took effort as well. The seasoning was just ok. I had the baby back ribs. While it was a generous... More

I went for dinner on a Friday night before going to Yosemite Saturday, so was looking for a good meal. My expectations were blown away. Very friendly staff who really seem passionate about what the chef is cooking, for good reason as the food was incredible. Very tasty and very good portions. Left very full and happy, I would differently... More
