About Don & Charlie's
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.

Don & Charlie's Ratings and Reviews
Our dining group have enjoyed cuisine at most of the finest (& most expensive) restaurants in the Phoenix area. Don & Charlie's is, without a doubt, as good as any food at any other upscale restaurant. The difference is a reasonably priced menu, without pretentiousness. The servers are a joy to interact with. ENJOY!!!
This is an "old style" restaurant: dark wood, green lampshades, crowded tables and noisy, serving "real" American food.
The restaurant has a LOT of baseball memorabilia, which was interesting to peek at during the long wait for our table (even with a confirmed Open Table reservation!).
Basic food seemed to be the best choice, so we went with steaks, cole slaw and baked potato. We weren't disappointed! Steaks were excellent. Side dishes were undistinguished but good.
While there was a long wait to get started, once we were served, wait staff were friendly and food was timely.
If you are a sports fan, we learned many baseball players / staff regularly visit the restaurant during spring training.
Took our son there for his send-off back to college after the holidays. He wanted a great steak and he got it!! Don & Charlie's is always a great place to eat. We love the atmosphere!! It's warm, high end, and fun!!! Prefer to sit in the bar area, but it's usually full as it's a favorite. The food is always fantastic and never fails!!! Service is consistently great!!! We try to go at least once a year.
Went to Don & Charlie's for our Anniversary, always wanted to go there but just never made it? It was very, very good - the service was awesome, blue cheese crusted steaks were perfect, good sides, excellent desserts, we will definitely be back for another special occasion. The restaurant was packed but the flow and service were spot-on, they were well staffed so the energy was there from having a full house but the service and pace were perfect.
The staff was super busy but never took it out on the customers. They did everything they could to streamline the customer experience. We ate at the bar and you could tell the bartender was under stress but never made it known to us. She was nothing but helpful, courteous, and above pleasant. She encountered customers that were less than pleasant with a big smile. The food is excellent but service was outstanding!
Priced a bit less than other Scottsdale steak venues but the food quality is much lower. Tried the ribs and steak. Robs are good but by no means great. The steak was fine but they offer no sauces at all. It came to the table cooked very rare after I ordered it medium. Had to send back.
Hostess service is a bit rude. Table service was very good.
Go once to see the cool sports memorabilia and then never again in my opinion.
A consistent treat in Scottsdale. If you have an interest in sports then the visit is even better with lots of memorabilia. The favorite spot for players, coaches, and owners it is a treat to be welcomed by Don Carson. The food is great and interesting. I love the chopped chicken liver as an appetizer but the shrimp cocktail is also delectable. Many people eat ribs and chicken but I always order the Bud Selig which is a massive chopped steak. The desserts are a treat. My friend loves their banana cream pie. I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant.
We went to Don and Charlie's on our anniversary. We had a cocktail in the bar where we enjoyed conversation with colorful characters. Moved seamlessly to our table where we received excellent attentive service. Ribs and steaks were delicious, although I wish they offered spare ribs in addition to baby back ribs. Baked potatoes were among the best we've had in restaurants in the valley.
Best rib eye ever at the suggestion of the best waitress we have EVER had any where any time !
She suggested the right entree for everyone , noticed our grand daughter 7 year old was not happy with her food and brought her a side salad and encouraged her enjoy ! Moreen I believe was her name just there 4 months short blond hair! We want to go back every week , noise level was good and we could visit !
Love love the food ❤️.
I have been going to Don & Charlies since 1984. I have always gotten the full slab of baby rack ribs. Not once have I even thought about eating anything else they serve there, that is how good the baby backs are. Highly recommend going.
Be prepared with a second choice if you want BBQ chicken which is fabulous.....been there numerous times over the years but lately 3 times they have run out of chicken!!! Steaks are wonderful, ribs too......we'll go back but in the future might order the chicken when I make the reservation.
A neighborhood hidden gem! Amazing SERVICE, FOOD & ATMOSPHERE! A must for any major sports fans. They have sports memorabilia signed on every inch of the walls. Our server Jeff was beyond amazing, it's hard to come by great customer service these days and Jeff hit it out of the park. Highly recommended :)
