Don & Charlie’s menu reflects the kind of fine American dining that has never gone out of style. The most popular menu items remain USDA prime steaks; hickory – smoked BBQ baby back ribs and chicken; prime rib; and fresh fish.

Don & Charlie’s features a comfortable atmosphere with warm wood paneling, banquettes, and crisply white – clothed tables. The star attraction is the veritable sports museum housed throughout the restaurant. It is thought to be the largest collection of sports memorabilia west of the Mississippi. It includes literally hundreds of autographed bats, balls, jerseys, and photos from athletes of past and present. It is not unusual to see celebrity players from every sport dining at the restaurant.

Don & Charlie’s is a Scottsdale landmark with a national reputation, their food and ambiance have been lauded in Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Gourmet Magazine and dozens of other publications.

The food was awesome, service very good, baseball/ sports motif. In town for spring training game 1, I did not feel out of place wearing my Dodgers jersey with many people more formal. A friend recommended Don & Charlie’s and said pro ball players eat here...it’s true. On the first day of spring training and Clayton Kershaw walks past our table...Wow! I think eating at Don & Charlie’s may become a tradition.

First time here. Great place for baseball memorabilia enthusiasts. The place is like a museum. Food was very good and service was excellent. Only drawback is the sound level; the restaurant was packed and we were told it always is this way. Almost had to shout to hear yourself heard. But worthwhile experience for a few hours of shouting.

Perfection! The menu has a good variety of options and I’ve never been disappointed. If you aren’t sure, go with one of their recommendations. The service is perfect without exception. It is not romantic but an elegant yet causal sport themed restaurant.

the good - the food was great. the table staff was quick and friendly.

the bad - the rude woman at the front desk with the dyed red hair.

we had 7 in our party. 3 of those are over 85 years old. 2 with canes. we had 6 out of 7 there ahead of time. the 7th was in traffic, but on the way. the woman wouldn't sit us " until your entire party is here"...i understand that policy so 1 person doesn't hold a table for 10....however, when you have 6 of 7...and 3 are old...making them stand, wait, sit in a bar...is just plain rude . So if one of the 7 got in a car accident and couldn't show up would they cancel the reservation? she was rude about it as well.

a shame that one person can put a sour taste about an otherwise lovely place.

great salad and sides, but the ribs were tough. couldn't pull apart . really difficult to cut.
ate almost half. took the rest home and steamed them. a little easier to eat.

The baby back ribs were wonderful. While the appetizer of chicken tenders was too salty, the manager was very concerned about our happiness with the overall the dining experience. He offered another item and a free dessert. A great place and will definitely return. The memorabilia is worth the visit!

We dine out a great deal, and consider this restaurant one of the best all around dining experiences . Superior waitstaff, incredible atmosphere what with a museums worth of memorabilia, and quality food at a fair price.

Got there and was seated very quickly. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and really nice. Food came out fast and was delicious. Really cool atmosphere with all the sports memorabilia throughout restaurant. I took my gf out for Valentine’s Day and she loved it. Looking forward to the next time I eat there.

My girlfriend has been coming to Don & Charlies since she was a kid vacationing with her family. She introduced me to this wonderful place, and Don, and Betsy many years ago.
We love it here. It's loud for sure, but everyone is ok pretending that they know you ... sit down and you're bound to have a chat or two with the person at the next table. Don's just puts you in that mood. The wait staff are family there, and they know the menu inside out, backward & forward. It feels casual and they treat you like family, but family at a semi formal "We want to impress the family" dinner. I just love this place. Recently my family came in from Brooklyn. This is where we went ... all 9 of us. My brother loved it so much he & his wife gave us a generous gift certificate for a Christmas gift. We used it for Valentines Day!!

Anyone from Chicago is familiar with Lettuce Entertain You and Carson’s Ribs. Don & Charlies is the perfect blend of both worlds. The Lettuce empire guarantees great quality and outstanding service and this Scottsdale, Arizona eatery offers them up with all the favorites. Great ribs, chicken, fish and the best prime steaks. Amazing sides, salads and apps and desserts worth saving room for.
The Chicago sports memorabilia can take hours to view. The walls are filled in every nook and cranny.
This is simply the best food in the Valley.

We were there for Valentines day. Needless to say, it was busy and thus somewhat noisy. We had the BBQ ribs and broasted chicken. Both were tasty, although the ribs were not as meaty as I expected. The server did a good job of matching our needs and then checking back without being obnoxious. Generally a good experience.

My wife and I love Don and Charlies, and wanted to have a casual dinner in the bar area, with cocktails and comfort food before seeing Hamilton at Gammage. We had a great booth in the bar, of course surrounded on every side with more sports history and original memorabilia than you could ever look at over the course of a dinner. My wife had a salad and what I consider to be the best burger in Phoenix, while I had their house coleslaw, and a ribs and chicken combo. These ribs are second to none - charred, sticky, sweet and cooked perfectly, served with two different BBQ sauces (original and spicy, at my request). The chicken schnitzel was excellent too, although I probably didn't need it, the full rack of ribs was more than enough. Throughout the meal, we had some great cocktails - martinis, wine and beer, with a chocolate martini and chocolate caramel pie for dessert. Everything was perfect, food, service, and of course, the best atmosphere in the city. This place is consistently outstanding and remains a staple for us, especially at this time of year.
