After a few disappointing meals at other restaurants in the area, this was my final stop before heading back to the Midwest. It was the right choice. Fantastic service from smiling faces and terrific food. They made me a burger off of the lunch menu, even though it was dinner time, and it was one of the best burgers I've... More

The menu offered several different options including steak, chicken, and fish. I ordered the stuffed pork tenderloin (stuffed with cranberries, blue cheese, and walnuts). My friend ordered the chicken fettucini alfredo which was some of the best I have tasted (not just your regular fettucini alfredo - had more flavors and spices). The only disappointment was the house salad dressing... More

Steak is meat that is heated, with minimal chef touch. Other entree's on the menu are unique and much more enjoyable, a reflection of the chef. Their pasta dishes are unique and tasty, as are the appetizers and soups. The clam chowder is better than what I have had on the CA coast. I also recommend whatever ravioli they have... More

I was very happy to join 5 of my friends for dinner here this week. None of us had been here for years and we were all very delighted with the variety offered on the menu. We all raved about our meals. The staff was all super friendly. I was very impressed with the way they accommodated me with my... More

With the downpour in Yosemite, we were part of the population that had to abandon the park as the winter storm was looking like it could flood the park! Our disappointment, however, was quickly abated by the Charles Street Dinner House. We decided to stop for the night in Mariposa, a sleepy gold rush town an hour outside of the... More

The food was okay and our server was efficient. Our issue was the hostess. We have a Spanish last name (reservations) and the comment made upon our arrival "Oh you look like a Espinosa (not our last name)", after realizing that my daughters boyfriend (white) was not me. We also received uncomfortable stares from other patrons of the restaurant. The... More

This little spot is rustic and has a home feel to it. If you don't have time to wait you might want to try somewhere else. Our wait wasn't bad but it's because everything is freshly made, the way it should be. Nothing about our meal tasted as if it had been frozen for days. We had the BBQ Bacon... More
