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.

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.

Phenomenal as always. There is a reason it has been here all these years. Come all the way from Vegas every time I am in Phoenix area.

Don & Charlie's does it again -- I've been to the restaurant a number of times but got to take two friends with me for their first time and they were quite impressed. Even though we had a late reservation and ended up being the last table in the restaurant, we were still given full, first class service. Everything about the experience was excellent from start to finish, and I certainly know I'll be back before long.

We have stopped by here yearly but sadly this year was not the best experience. I love the sports memorabilia but the ribs did not match up to the quality of teh past visits. Ribs were dry and not very meaty. One person at our table had the filet and it was great. The baked potato and slaw remained super but the ribs are the big ticket item and they failed this time

Great ribs, great slaw, great salmon, and Boston cream pie. It’s been along time since I have had a good dinner like this one.

The service was outstanding! I’ve seen never seen memorabilia at this level. It’s on steroids!

Decided to take my wife here for a birthday dinner and it was Far and Away an excellent choice. Had a reservation and was seated properly and greeted quickly by Rob. He gave us a great wine suggestion to pair with our meal and also gave us some great options which turned out to superb! Service was constant but yet respectful and the food was the best we've had since we moved to Phoenix 6 months ago. Loved it!

Don and Charlie's offers great food and excellent service. We were all in the mood for meat and this restaurant is definitely the place for steak and RIBS! I thoroughly enjoy Don's charred ribs and recommend them. The sides are large,too. If you are a fan of banana cream pie this place should be one of your 'must go' spots.

If you want to visit an authentic steak house with a great tradition, this is the place. My escort, who has lived in Phoenix for 20 years, had never experienced this wonderful spot. On my next trip from Florida to Phoenix, I will make sure to visit the bar.

I have lived in the area for many years and heard great things about Don and Charlie's. I had mixed reviews on my first visit. I loved the ambiance and memorabilia. That was very cool. Our server as witty, fun, and knowledgeable. I ordered the Don's special ribs and we were told before hand they were not "fall off the bone" however I did not expect them to be so dry. There was also limited amount of meat on the bones. This was very disappointing. My baked potato was very good and so was my one drink, and old fashion. Little did I realize that this small size drink would be $11! One shot of house whiskey and some ice basically. Beware of those kind of drinks I guess. I will be back but will be looking for something more inviting on the menu.

Had some family in from Michigan who wanted to dine at a place that was different and served great food. Don & Charlie's accomplished both. The sports memorabilia theme of the restaurant was a big hit with our guests seeing as how they were from a sports town like Detroit (i.e. Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, Pistons, etc). Food was outstanding and our server, AMY, was amazing.

Chose to eat dinner at the bar over our reserved table. Tracy, the bartender, won us over with cocktails and great conversation. Folks around the bar were friendly and we all enjoyed talking and watching sports. Drinks were very good, and the food was as good as any steakhouse I’ve been to, and I’ve been too many. Definitely recommend the au gratin potatoes and two filet medallions, wife loved the ny strip. Creamed spinach was awfully good as well. Pass on the onion rings.
