When there is a 5 year gap of time between visits (only do to not living in AZ) and it is even better than you remember that is saying something! I know it's been a Scottsdale staplemark for many years so it may seem in a bit of an odd location due to the modern apartment buildings surrounding it but... More

The sports memorabilia is enough of a reason to visit this place but the food and service are excellent every time. I had the chicken, my friend had the ribs, both were excellent. The service was first class, the hostess was friendly and funny. I've been here before, I'll be back whenever I'm in Phoenix again.

Not knowing the restaurants near our condo we were renting, we took a chance on this gem. It's full of sports memorabilia from many signed baseballs to signed Sports Illustrated magazines. The food was the best!! Huge prawns, a very tasty beef bone, wonderful moist pork chop, creamy cole slaw, and the best baked potatoes we've ever had! Service was... More

Don & Charlie's has the best prime rib ever. In fact, their food never fails to delight. It's just delicious! My husband loves the creamy cole slaw and I love the deli style. Their crispy fries are perfect. The deserts. The chocolate cake is perfect....moist and not overly sweet. The fudge sauce is the best ever. The turtle pie is... More

My combo, baby back ribs & prime rib. Hmmm Yum! I shared both dishes, half portion with my BFF. We sat by the bar & had a front row seat to all the action. Big screen TV, customers strolling in waiting to be seated & getting a drink by the bar. I watched all the action sipping my blueberry margarita... More

Specialties of Prime Rib everyday, ribs two ways, and broasted chicken. Extensive menu with many choices of cooking styles, sauces and sides. $$$ Service was exceptional although the restaurant was very crowded with people waiting for space. Only drawback and an important one for us was the noise level. We might try a week night instead of Saturday night, but... More

We were with a large group at Don and Charlies. We had great service --they even gave us individual checks. The food was really good and a great variety. We had the ribs with shrimp and loved it. We got there early and we were glad because by 6:30 on a Sunday evening they were very busy.

While visiting the Phoenix area, our friends who are locals highly recommended dining at Don & Charlie's. Their suggestion was spot on as we found Don & Charlie's to be a very excellent bar and restaurant. We made reservations and we are glad we did. It was a Tuesday night and the place was packed. Being so crowded during a... More

My husband and I split a delicious shrimp cocktail (with sauce that packs a ppunch!), then the large prime rib. Rare done right. Some places they flood the plate with au jus, which can be very salty. Here it was plain and simple and splendid. The waitress split the deli cole slaw in half for us, as well as the... More

If you get the chance, GO! Low ceilings. Darkly lit. Tables packed in. Sports (mostly baseball) memorabilia everywhere. The waiter was very attentive and helpful in ordering. The trout (pecan dusted?) was fantastic. Willing to split a prime rib order tor two people. Great time!
