“Good food, good price, good venue.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This restaurant offered great food for a great value. We ate during the early bird six by six and it was a small selection from the menu for cheap. It was a bit busy, and busy means loud. The venue was excellent it featured all sorts of memorabilia from professional sports teams overall I gave this restaurant a 5 because it was outstanding in all these category's.

“Was Great Now Only Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We go to D&C about 4 times per year, our last visit on Christmas Day 2012. While the place used to be great it is now only good. My ribs were so tough I had to return them. When the manager brought a new rack, he apologized and said these will be better. I guess why were they not good the first time? I saw another diner return his ribs as being tough and they too were replaced. My wife had a steak which was OK...but far from being very good. While we will continue to support D&C most likely it will be one time per year.

“This ain't no sports bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This is our favorite "celebration" restaurant in Scottsdale. Everything is superb from the liver pate to the banana cream pie! I had lobster the last time I was there and it was excellent. They are best known for the steaks, chops and ribs; all out of this world. For especially friendly service sit in Donna's section.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great Food, Great Atmosphere, Great Sports Memorabilia - I try to make this a stop on my Birthday every year....also, the Prime Rib I think is the best thing on the menu. Cowboy up, and get the Don's cut / medium rare. Service is excellent as well. I have never had a server there that has been less than excellent. I will continue to go back, year after year.
