Don & Charley's is an icon to Scottsdale. The ribs, steaks, prime rib are always excellent. No one can beat their mayo Cole slaw. The sports memorabilia is something else. It will be a real potty to see this great restaurant close its doors next year for a new hotel to be built. We hope Mr. Carson decides to re-open his restaurant in the new hotel.
Fantastic experience. We’re from Indianapolis visiting Scottsdale and we were visiting a friend who is from our hometown of Gary, IN. This place was a little slice of Chicago heaven. It was truly like stepping back in time and eating at a restaurant in the Chicagoland area in the 1960s/1970s. The food, service, and overall experience was outstanding. Was it worth the price tag of over $200 for 5 people? No. But we had a darn good time and meal. It’s a shame it’s going out of business. If I had one measly complaint it would be of the busboys. They were a bit preoccupied with the young hostesses and would congregate up near the front of the restaurant. It was practically like pulling teeth to get one of them to come over and help you (and our server was overwhelmed without their help.)
Genevieve was a great server! Food was great as usual
I would have given five stars except hostess completely overlooked the reservation note about celebrating my husband’s milestone birthday. Nothing was said the whole evening, and we decided just to leave it. Otherwise, solid five stars, always.
I have visited Don & Charlie's many times & have ALWAYS had excellent food & great service.
Never had I ever had a complaint.
Service was good, prime New York was cooked perfectly and tasted great! Both desserts were tasty as well. Will definately be back again
The service was the most awful we have had at any restaurant here in over 3 years. The cudo cut of beef was substandard. The chicken was excellent.
I indicated that dinner was to celebrate a birthday. No mention of this was made during our visit.
Everything was absolutely wonderful. We’ve been going there for 30 years and are never disappointed!
We only go when Donna is working .she is wonderful!
Only VERY disappointing thing was their baker changed the rye bread recipe and I hope they go back to the original. Spoke with Mgr and he agrees and is attempting to speak with the baker.
Food is great. Portions are large. All of the sides are amazing, especially he macaroni and cheese. Food is a little pricey
Consistently delicious food and attentive service. Our go to Scottsdale restaurant for comfort food.
We are regulars at Don and Charlie’s for over 20 years. Food is always great and the experience top notch! Our favorite!
Great service and food. Enjoyed looking at the memorabilia.
Fantastic as usual
FABULOUS AS ALWAYS
My wife and I wanted to experience a unique local restaurant in Scottsdale and this came recommended. We were NOT disappointed! The bone-in ribeye was one of the best I have had. The filet medallions, creamed spinach and the rest fell right in line as well. Hope we get a chance to go back before they close up for good.
Very unique and comfortable environment with lots of sports memorabilia. Great menu including steaks and barbeque with a very good wine selection. Pam our server was knowledgeable, accommodating and made the experience a joy. Looking forward to our next visit.
We love Don & Charlies and have come for various celebrations over the last 25 years! The prime rib and cheesy potatoes were excellent but the ribs, which are usually outstanding, were a but tough and dry this time. Very unusual. Our server was wonderful, support staff very attentive and overall still one of our favorite places to dine. So sad to know that one of our favorite places will be closing.
I checked in advising the person behind the desk of my reservation for open table. I was not credited for showing up. The bartender in the bar was very accommodating and professional. She saved the day. I will come back because of her.
It was good but seemed a bit pricey for the quality - I didn’t walk away thinking oh that was an awesome meal. We did love the baseball theme that was a winner.
I have been going to Don & Charlie's for decades. The service and food is always top-notch. My prime rib was excellent. The double-baked potato melted in my mouth. I enjoyed the iceberg wedge salad with thousand island dressing. My server, Jeff, was very attentive. He suggested key lime pie for dessert, which I graciously declined. I sat in a different part of the restaurant and got to see memorabilia I had never seen previously. I can't wait to go back.
Always a great meal
The chopped salad was excellent. The calamari was a meager order, plumped up by a thick piece of bread in the bowl. The ribs were okay. We had staff standing nearby carrying on a conversation that should have been done in a non-public area. We sometimes waited a while to see our waitress. We've gone to Don and Charlie's many times, and this visit was a little less than what we expected.
Great spot and food. A bit of a wait after our booking time but overall a great night.
We love Don and Charlie’s Pecan crusted trout!!! Their coleslaw is such a good tradition to a superb meal.
We had another delightful dinner at Don & Charlie’s. We always enjoy our visits to this special place. Great food, great service and a wonderful and memorable experience each and every time.
What can one say about this resturant that hasn't benn said before. The wait staff is excellant
Donna is incredible. The food always great have tried many items never yet been disappointed.
My husband had Parm incrusted steak wow was it great with twice baked. I had ribs this time which I had served with 2 sauces and we always split the chopped salad which is wonderful.
The meal comes with 2 types of cole slaw to choose from and a variety of potatoe options.
They send us home with our cole slaw because we have the chopped salad (how nice is that.)
Lets not forget the Bagel chips and bread oh yum...Thanks Don Carson and Staff
The food was incredible, the waitress was amazing. She was friendly and very attentive to our needs and even brought us a small taste of sauces before we order. The experience was great except for the hostess. We had reservations for 6, but when we came we told her it was 4. She was extremely rude and said next time let us know before hand. Well I didn't know until we where getting out of the Lyft, that the party of 2 had an emergency and could not make it. If she would have said it nicely I would have told her what happened. But she said it so rudely I thought to myself "keep you mouth shut because you will just as rude as her" and I did not and would not stoop to her level. The first person that greets you is a reflection of your establishment. I would review it with your hostess staff because your restaurant was amazing.
Our dinner was outstanding and the service was great! I highly recommend this restaurant to others.
Great food and service
Great place for the baseball lover. The food is excellent!
I love this place. It is probably my favorite restaurant in the Valley because of my Chicago routes.
Best bet for great food and attentive service every visit.
The food was great, as always. I requested a booth on my reservation and got one! The place was packed on Wednesday night and really loud...
Don’s is always excellent.
We came for our anniversary and had a great time with great food. The rib eye was fantastic!!!
Great food, wonderful service, good value especially with $20 promotion coupon.
