Food reminds us of home4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWow! Even if you are not aWow! Even if you are not a sports fan you'd be impressed with the memorabilia that covers these walls. 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.

All the food was excellent, and the service was superb.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Evening!Took my Father for his 81st birthday. He was very happy with the service, great food, and the restaurant in general. One of the Chefs came by to say "hi" and make suggestions on specialties that he created, like the salmon special that evening. My wife and my Step-Mother equally enjoyed the evening. 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.

Knowing Don Carson is an unrepentent Cub fan the lack of Chicago White Sox stuff is shameful. (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. It is one of my favorite in the valley.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there early (5:15)We were there early (5:15) so don't know aobut night life. Food was great. Service was speedy and friendly. We will go back for sure!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBaseball Memories and Great FoodAlways reliable. We dine here once a year when in Scottsdale. Never disappoints. 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.

Make sure to make a reservation.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a nightThis is our 2nd year there after a Dodger spring training game. We plan on making it an annual event. I thnk I could spend all day there and still not see all of the memorabelia. I drool everytime I walk through the front door. It was nice to see the autographed baseball from my old classmate from Van Nuys high school Don Drysdale and my all time favorite Dodger Sandy Koufax. Last year on our visit there we got to meet Ned Colletti. Took pictures with him and chatted. He's a class act. looking forward to next year.

Ribs do not fall off the bone like we hoped. Our only complaint.
Sporting memorabilia is massive and really cool.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDon & Charlies is always great,Don & Charlies is always great, a Spring Training visit must include Don & Charlies. The chicken is always a winner! Their salads are great too but the baseball mementos are un-
beatable!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great dinner, andIt was a great dinner, and the added atmosphere of all the baseball items to see during our spring training visit was a reminder that previous players who had preceded these new players we watched this week were once just rookies and possibly old hands still trying for one more season before being traded or released.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great meal here duringWe had a great meal here during our Spring Training trip.

Looking for a quiet place - don't come here. Baseball fans will have tons of fun and the crowd is fun loving. I love the prime rib but there's plenty of other choices.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMour server, Hershey, was terrificour server, Hershey, was terrific & very attentive!12/16/2012 12:00:00 AMOur table for four was readyOur table for four was ready when we arrived, and we were able to move from a square table to a booth. The main dining room was busy and somewhat noisy. The creamy cole slaw is outstanding, and more than enough to serve as an appetizer. The broccoli was over cooked and had no seasoning. The special rack of ribs was tasty, but somewhat overcooked and not as moist or juicy as we would prefer. The service was attentive. Overall, it was an enjoyable meal, but not the type of place you need to keep going back to with any frequency more than once per year with so many other fine restaurants in Scottsdale.12/7/2012 12:00:00 AMWe go to Spring Training everyWe go to Spring Training every year and Don & Charlie's are always on our list of places to dine. The food is great and if you are a sports fan, this is the place to experience.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
