“Charles Street Dinner House......Excellent!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I recently celebrated my 50th birthday with my wife Anna at the Charles Street Dinner House in Mariposa, California. The staff were great and really made my birthday feel that much more special. The Rib-Eye steak I had was the best I have ever had! If you are looking for great food, a friendly staff that is spot-on with their service, and makes everyone feel welcome regardless of the occasion, the Charles Street Dinner House is off the charts on everything! Thank you again for a truly memorable dining experience!

“A great place to eat in Mariposa!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We visited twice during our stay, the first time on a Saturday, second the following day on a Sunday.
On the Saturday night, the hostess at the front of house was excellent, telling us about the dinner house, all the food available and even helped us with a good choice of wine, of which unfortunately we can't get back here in the UK, as it was superb!
The food itself was cooked to perfection and presented excellently.
It was clear that it is a popular eating place, we guess with locals also.
All in all, great place to eat when staying in the area.

One thing that did spoil it slightly, was that on our second visit, the service was not as good and we felt we were being rushed to leave, having been given our bill before we had even been asked if we wanted dessert, then had to specifically request coffee. This was a shame - although the food second time round was just as good.

“Faultless”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Ate here one night while staying at a local B&B in Mariposa and would highly recommend it. Relaxed, family atmosphere, slick service and excellent food. I had the steak salad with cranberries - delicious- and they make their own garlic bread which was also great.

“Great value, great food and very friendly service”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We ate here as a family on two occasions during a 3 night stay in the Mariposa area and on both nights we had really great meals with very friendly service and at a very reasonable cost.
The ribs were a big hit with the kids, with the meat falling off the bone. The burger is huge, but tasty, and the steaks are also really good - all served with excellent baked potatoes.
No room for dessert here as the helpings are quite generous.
If in Mariposa you should make sure you stop off at the Charles Street Dinner House.

“Dinner on a Friday night”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

This is a very good choice in town. They do an excellent job with a small place to serve your meal. If I lived there I will be a regular.
