The service, food quality, and even the way the food was packed up were all outstanding. We had the ribs, filet, and a burger and everyone loved their meal. Thank you!

Though it's closed for a while now I'll be at the head of the line. Bit grungy and definitely a dive bar vibe, but loads of fun and good people.

Standout restaurant in Mariposa in a historical building.  Elegant dishes with a down home feel. I appreciated the kids menus (and reasonable kids prices). The hostess could not have been friendlier. Ribeye was well seasoned and cooked perfectly. Honey bbq ribs was a favorite.

Great food!!
We were amazed at the food here. They had just reopened when we ate here so it was a long wait and they were understaffed but that being said it was still worth it.

Amazing! In the midst of all this craziness, Charles Street Dinner House really shined through. They were able to open just in time for our wedding day and stayed open late just to accommodate us. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Jenn and Rachel went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect.

Charles Street has been one of my family's favorites for YEARS for so many reasons.

Jean Ain via - Mar 11, 2020
Polecam. Żeberka petarda. Świetne w smaku i idealnie odchodzily od kości. Medaliony z 'porka' w porządku, ale ser z farszu bardzo dominował i może nie wszystkim smakować. Zupa cebulowa z grzanką również bardzo dobra. Byliśmy tam w marcu i była to chyba najdłużej otwarta restauracja. To również zasługuje na pochwałę.
Kamil Grudziński via - Mar 11, 2020
(Translated by Google) I would recommend. Firecracker ribs. Great in taste and perfectly detached from the bones. "Porka" medallions are fine, but the stuffing cheese dominated and may not taste good for everyone. Onion soup with toast also very good.
