Don & Charlie's
Great dining experienceAlthough we arrived late the Hostess and our waiter were very pleasant and made us feel welcome. The food was well prepared, it was very tasty and the portions were generous. We will definitely be back. Anyone interested in sports will find this place to be a both a fine dining experience and a sports memorabilia museum.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMArizona's best ribs hands downI have been coming to Don and Charlie's for over 20 years.

Been coming there for at least 7 years x 4 x a year.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMnostalgicOur son, a sports fan himself, was in town so we took him there to see all the memorabilia on all the walls. It was rather crowded the evening we ate so we were unable to check out all of it. Next time we will have to come when it is less crowded.
That night apparently there was some problem in the kitchen so our meal was delayed but we didn't expect to have 'fast food' so we were fine with it. We saw the owner pitching in to get things moving in the dining area. That showed us that he cared about the service for his patrons.
The meal was delicious and the table service was excellent - the waitress was pleasant, efficient and attentive.
We would go there again!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Don & Charlie's!This is one of our favorite restaurants. Our entree's always come out quick and hot. The food is always very good!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for out of town familyWhen my brother and his wife visited this weekend from San Francisco, I took them to Don and Charlie's for dinner on Saturday night. As always, the experience was perfect - outstanding food, great atmosphere, and impeccable service from both the servers and management. The ladies both had excellent salmon while my brother and I enjoyed the steaks, ribs and chicken. A few bottles of wine, lots of great food, some cocktails and dessert, and we had the perfect evening. I always bring out of town guests to Don and Charlie's, as the experience is consistently exceptional in a uniquely Phoenix environment.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMRemembering ChicagoIf you are from Chicago's northside, this restaurant is a must. If you are not living in Chicago anymore and crave the Chicago foods, this is the place.
We had BBG ribs, french fries, cole slaw and cheese bread for an appetizer.
The carbs just kept on coming, but it was all very high quality.
Atmosphere is fun, especially if you are a sports fan. Amazing sports memorabilia.
Plan to make this a stop whenever i'm in Scottsdale.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW - exceptional eveningThis is a Lettuce Entertain You (LEY) Restaurant facilitiy, which is based out of Chicago.

I told my family, the restaurant was the sports version of Planet Hollywood. The food was very good and plentiful starting with the garlic cheesy bread and shrimp de jonghe appetizers. The shrimp de jonghe had plenty of shrimp and the right amount of garlic and breading. I was in foodie heaven. Each meal we ordered came with a salad and side. We had plenty of food to bring some home to enjoy later. The staff was very attentive and friendly. We plan to bring friends and family back with us.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the sports thehe andLoved the sports thehe and decor. Food was done perfectly.

We will visit again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in Old TownWe are always happy to dine at Don & Charlie's; great food, good service and fun sports memorabilia atmosphere. We like the Burger bar.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI had not been here for yearsI had not been here for years as I live in NYC but the food is even better. I was disappointed that they don't have the lamb chops on the menu any more and the chicken liver they used to give gratis is now an appetizer choice. The chicken liver was wonderful though and the parmesan encrusted steak is fabulous! The service was great and I will return sooner. Jean4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBaby back ribs are alwaysBaby back ribs are always a hit, we had broasted chicken and the halibut entree also. Very good.

(Just Kidding ) As to the Cubs: Anyone can have a bad century!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our recent dinnerWe enjoyed our recent dinner at Don & Charlie's during the last week of spring training. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable and overall we had a much better experience that our trip to D & C's in 2012.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent.The food was excellent. The service was ok. Not great. The place was very very busy because of the end of spring training. It seemed like our salads and food came out a minute apart! We had to stop eating our salads to eat our food. We Felt rushed for sure. But the food was excellent! We will go back just maybe not at the same time of the year!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been going to thisI have been going to this restaurant fo over 20 years.

Always packed.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTry it OnceDecided to try after hearing Giant's fans talk about it during Spring Training. It is a popular hangout so reservations are recommended. Food was very good. Our server, Patrick, was knowledgeable and entertaining. The skirt steak, which he recommended, was a good choice, cooked to our exact wishes. The string onions were very good. The calamari appetizer was best part of meal, not greasy but crisp and delicious. The "award-winning" ribs were just okay -- a bit dry but flavorful. The baked potatoes were enormous with heavily spiced skins -- too peppery to eat with the potato. The walls are interesting, packed with memorabilia from many sports and locations. Prices are in the same league as fancy steak houses, $100 for a dining couple.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDon and Charlies is a "SportsDon and Charlies is a "Sports Restaurant and Bar" as well as a great Steak House. A long time "go to" place in Scottsdale, AZ it is wall to wall and ceiling filled with memorabilia from every sport imaginable.
The Rib's, a house specialty, are perfectly done, I had them Don's way with extra char - yummy.
We've seen groups served (an entire college baseball team that arrived by bus) as well as couples.
One more thing make reservations a month in advance it is always packed during Spring Training.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWas everything I was toldWas everything I was told it would be. Great food, and great service. Never felt rushed an any way even though it was extremely busy. Would definitely recommend this restaurant as a "must do" when you are in Scottsdale.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMeal was delicious, serviceMeal was delicious, service was awesome, and the sports memorabilia was incredible!!!
