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
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?
It has been a while since we have been to Don and Charlie's but it is still just as good as we remembered. Excellent BBQ and the Broasted Chicken was great, nice option compared to fried chicken. Only disappointment was the dessert we order the Key Lime pie which is made in house. It was not comparable to Key Lime pie from Florida. Lacked the tartness, consistency was not dense enough (was more like a mousse) and the graham cracker crust fell apart. I would try the banana cream pie next time which might be better.
We love going to Don and Charlie's and Sunday night did not disappoint. The service was excellent as always and the food was exceptional. The sports memorabilia is always fun to look at and there's always something that wasn't noticed before.
For a small family get together our table was ready when we arrived. We started with the chopped liver appetizer, and a house salad. My sister got a burger, salad and fries. My cousin and I split a New York Strip and an order of shrimp scampi with skinny fries. Everything came out perfectly cooked. Service was great, the server split the one order in the kitchen.
It turned out to be a fun and tasty evening.
We'll be back!
We always love Don and Charlie’s. My group and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and all the offerings. Our only complaint with some of the elderly guest around us could not complain more about everything to their servers. I feel sorry for some of your waitstaff, to have to put up with them. But your servers in their defense we’re still completely gracious and accommodating.
If you love sports and great food Don and Charlie’s is the place. Close your eyes, you’re back in Chicago. Great ribs, steaks and all the mid west side dishes you could hope for. Usually come here 2x per year with friends or family. Never disappoints.
