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
Ordered medium rare Parmesan crusted NY. Tasted well done. Ordered sliced tomatoes instead of the broccoli never got em. Told the waitress got an apology. From out of town so likely not coming back but service was great and flavors were good too.
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!
Visiting from out of state, recommended by locals. Absolutely loved this place, a treasure. Can see why it has been around for decades, such great food. Prime rib was the best we have had in years, wish we lived closer! Will be a "must do" whenever in area.
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.
Robbie our server best experience ever. If you want steak this is the place for value. Bone in ribeye with char is best steak ever tasted. U are losing out if you at least do not try if you have never been. Had many steaks in life and it gets better every time. 👍👍👍👍👍
First time for me and wife. Up shopping from Tucson
Staying the night locally. Waiter Rob I believe was terrific. Entire staff professional and friendly. Steak was prepared perfectly. Will definitely go back when visiting.
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.
We were looking for a steak place that wouldn’t actually break the bank and found this gem. The food was outstanding. The baseball ambiance was fun to look at. The wait staff, especially our waiter, Robbie, were well trained, extremely knowledgeable and both fun and friendly. We will go gain, and we will ask for Robbie.
Great ribs that do not fall off the bone, service good but a bit rushed. They kept removing dishes, bread basket, etc. from the table without asking first. Other than that great sports memorabilia to look at, but the food is the star here.
We,ve been going to Don & Charlies for 30+ years, and it’s our family favorite. Unfortunately, the food appeared and tasted like it was reheated from the night before. The twice-baked potato was crusty and hard, no creamy whipped potato inside the skin. The ribs were dry. This is unusual. Usually, it’s par excellence. Off night, maybe?
