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.

First visit, older crowd, felt like an old classic Chicago Restaurant, which is very refreshing after all the new age, ritzy restaurants in Scottsdale. Wife and I absolutely loved it. Food was great, not cheap, but worth it. Packed solid on a Thursday night!

Been to Don & Charlie’s many times. Food is always very good. Great Chicago style ribs. Best twice baked potato.

Service, this time however, was lacking. Completely emotionless server who we felt like she was doing us a favor by serving us.

Asked for a refill on the bread, we never got it until the bus boy asked again and he promptly brought more.

The bus boy was terrific. The server...not so much. Definitely a person who shouldn’t be in the service industry.

The amount of sports memorabilia throughout the restaurant was amazing! I had the beef short ribs and it was delicious but those at my table called it a "dog bone." It would have made some dog very happy though! Most of the table had the ribs and they said they were okay. It had an old-time steakhouse feel...kinda dark...but no complaints! I hear it's closing and scheduled to be torn down, not sure if that's true so try it soon!

Two orders of charred ribs and an order of chopped steak were all perfectly cooked. Sides were large and delicious. Server was friendly, efficient and attentive. What more could a person want? We are upset that D and C is closing next year and plan to return often until that happens.

Don and Charlie's is very dark, cold and loud. Food is too expensive for what you get. We've been there several times in the past and don't recall the high prices!!

Ribs were tough! Not worth the price when you only get 6 ribs. No meat on them, but good flavor. Would never order again'

Steak prices are way over priced!!

I guess you pay for the name and reputation

Wait staff is excellent!!

Ribs very tough for the second time in a row. Charleston's i ribs are far more tender and less expensive. D & C's seems to be relying on its past Scottsdale rep and a strong following from Chicago.
Way over rated.

The sports memorabilia on the walls is amazing, like being in a museum. Our server was excellent, helpful and friendly. The filet mignon I had for dinner was hands down the best steak I have ever eaten. From start to finish a great place.

It had been a long time since we last visited Don & Charlie's. When I read in the newspaper that it may be replaced by a boutique hotel after spring training 2019, I knew it was time to revisit.

I ordered chicken schnitzel w/baked potato. OMG! The baked potato was the best I have even eaten. The skins had been oiled and salted and it was delicious. The schnitzel was very good. My ony disappoiintment was my Moscow Mule. The menu stated it was a "signature cocktail" so my expectations were high. I became suspicious when it wasn't served in the usual copper mug. The taste was flat and not up to par.

Of course the restaurant was crowded even though it was a Monday night after spring training ended. I think the tables are way too close together. It is impossible to have a conversation. I also thought the restaurant was VERY dark--what are they trying to hide?

Still, I will hate to see the restaurant go.

Meat was not cooked to order (they couldn't get it right for the table next to us either). Very slow in bringing the food. Three people, no alcohol and yet $260. Not worth the money even to see the great memorabilia on the wall.
