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 Ratings and Reviews
My wife's daughter and her three sons were in Scottsdale from their home in Maui. Everyone had an outstanding meal. The oldest had the kids prime rib dinner and the piece was as big as an adult would get. Nothing left on the plate. My stepdaughter had a rack of ribs "don's way" which were amazing. The smallest had mac and cheese and the middle boy had the kids rack of ribs. My wife and had the broasted chicken and their chicken is the best anywhere. Great evening and everyone left full and completely happy.
I was very excited to try this restaurant having heard about it from a few friends from Scottsdale. After finding out they ran out of Shrimp for their appetizer and their mashed potatos to accompany my steak (they still had every other type of potato availble) I received a well-done, black charred filet mignon that was mediocre (after ordering it medium-well). My favorite part of our meal was my grey goose martini. Ambiance was nice but dingy.
The meal was horrible. Been living down the street for a year & a half & thought we would try it. The filet was priced higher than Mastros & over cooked, the ribs were so tough I couldn't even get them off the bone with a knife. $136 not including tip & a very average bottle of wine. We must have really ordered the wrong things.
We depend on Don and Charlie's for good food and friendly, efficient service. In a multitude of visits spanning over 13 years, we've never been disappointed.
Not so incidentally - if you're a sports fan, first time visitor to this place, you'll be blown away by the massive collection of displayed memorabilia.
My wife, daughter and I dined at Don and Charlie's in order to celebrate my birthday. I enjoyed seeing all of the sports memorabilia which they have on display. I have never seen quite a collection! The food was great. We had chicken, steak and ribs. All were top notch. Robbie took excellent care of us. He displayed a great personality and provided wonderful service. I really appreciated the fact that he took the time to acknowledge my birthday. I absolutely loved the baby back ribs (Don's style.) We all look forward to our next visit to Don and Charlie's.
This used one of my favorite restaurants. They have changed their menu to a la carte and squeeze every dime out of you. I upgraded my coleslaw to a dinner salad and they charged me $6.99! The chopped liver that they used to bring complimentary is now $8.99. What a complete and total rip off.
We met my grandson and his wife for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. No rush and the food was excellent. We all had different entrees from salmon to ribs to steak. Yum! We will return in the near future with other friends for more delicious food. Our waiter was excellent, attentive without being overbearing . Thank you for a fun, relaxed dinner.
First time at this restaurant, and was very impressed.... atmosphere (cozy, relaxed, friendly neighborhood feeling); food (very good), service (server was friendly, accommodating, very attentive) ... everything was great. Will definitely come back.
Don & Charlie’s was wonderful—it always is. We celebrated our anniversary and we had a wonderful time. The food was excellent and the service was the best we’ve had. Don Carson greeted us and was so gracious and kind. Another fine, relaxing evening & meal. Thanks, To Don and staff.
Always an excellent and exhilarating experience . But this time it was embellished by a splendid preparation for the Rosh Hoshhana holiday. I cannot say "thank you" enough for the respect and courtesy this wonderful restaurant showed. We are a customer for life.
We visited this restaurant because my boyfriend had been here several times with his buddies during spring training. The sports memorabilia is phenomenal. I'm more into health food, which was a little harder to find here. I prefer an non-ice burg lettuce salad, and more on the vegetarian side. This restaurant is more for the extreme carnivores!
Once again, Don & Charlie's hit a homerun! The food was great. The service was great. And our wait time upon arrival was minimal. We had called to change our reservation time (open table showed a much-later available table than we wanted), and they were extremely accommodating, for which we were very thankful! We will be back!
This is our favorite place to go eat for special date nights, birthdays and anniversary's. The food is always amazing. The ambiance is great! This trip the server we had was not the best and not as attentive as usual. But it is still our favorite place to go.
Once again we traveled to Scottsdale, AZ for a week long getway. We never miss the opportunity to eat at Don & Charlie's at least once every trip when in Scottsdale. This year's we had another great dinner at the restaurant over a Saturday night. I was afraid we would have trouble getting in, however, we were seated within ten minutes of our reservation. I had ribs "Don's Way" which were delicious! Charred on the outside with BBQ sauce on the side. My wife broke from her usual filet to a small cut of prime rib. It was the most beautiful piece of meat I have ever seen. Moreover, it was even more delicious then it looked. There was no fat on the prime rib it actually look a filet! The taste was incredible... I tried to trade a couple of my ribs for a chunk of my wife's prime... but she would have none of it! I only got to taste the prime rib when my wife could eat no more! After tasting it I understood why my wife wouldn't trade!!! As usual, we split a huge twice baked potato... which was as good as ever. My only disappointment was they were already out of their banana cream pie... and it was only eight o'clock! I can't give this wonderful steak house anything other then is was, again, a 5+ star dining experience!
