This place is great! Coming out of Yosemite we stopped in Mariposa and found Charles Street, and what good fortune that was. Great steaks, salad, lobster... lively staff and lovely presentation. Big city high end dining at a foothill price.

Great food and service. Molly in particular, a long time employee, was most accommodating and knowledgeable. French onion soup and filet mignon were superb.

Very pleasant surprise. Nice, cosy atmosphere, friendly welcome and food was very good and enormous portions. You don't need to order a starter, as the mains come with copious sides and additions! A really nice spot to stop at and good value.

I would suggest making reservations for a large group. But you can walk right in without and they will seat you as soon as they can.
