We had just spent the day at Yosemite Valley walking around for 11km. We got back to Mariposa and decided to have dinner there. We literally walked in off the street with no reservation at 6.30pm. We were greeted by the very friendly host. My husband had the New York steak and said it was the best steak he had... More

My wife and I ride my Harley to Mariposa a few times a year. Beautiful drive up and it's on the way to Yosemite. Watch your speed. CHP frequently patrol the stretch of road from Merced.

My wife and I are in Mariposa for a few days and we just ate here. Both of us had the shark special which was delicious. Overall the food was very good although the soup was a bit bland. The service was good once we got seated. The restaurant filled up early so go early or make reservations.

After a day of hiking Yosemite, we made the trek back to our hotel in Mariposa, looking for a nice meal to close out a calorie consuming day. We hit the spot at the Charles Street Dinner House! Small and quaint, we weren't quite sure what to expect. We found the ribs and roasted potatoes to be delicious. I had... More

We don't go if we need to get through a meal quickly but the food is always excellent and I have yet to go wrong with any dish. One of my favorite restaurants to visit. Staff is always incredibly kind and helpful, just seems to take a bit overlong to get things.

I just eat my best BBQ Ribs ever. Great environment, good prices for very good and quality food. All the workers have been fantastic with us and I was really sad to stay in Mariposa just for one night otherwise it could become my lunch and dinner place!

Visited 18 August - Dinner. The service was good. Friendly and professional. Minimal wait for meals. A bit overpriced for us. I did expect better food. Husband had steak and ordered medium/well, he got medium/rare. I had the soup and pasta, both a little bland. Would we return? Yes, as it may have just been an off night.

Thank nixchik
