Drinks are good but pricey. Steak is the way to go and the 12 oz filet is only $4 more than the 8 oz. Choice of potatoes comes with it and for a few bucks more add a salad. Ask for extra bread for your filet sandwich tomorrow.

I've been coming here since the place opened up in the early '80's and have been a loyal customer. But tonight was the last time. The food is still good and the service superior. But, and this is a big one, they have significantly reduced portion sizes and increased prices. Plus they made an error on our check (my wife,... More

I have been going to Don and Charlie's for years. The staff is great and the restaurant looks like a sports museum. The food is wonderful, but I highly recommend the Ribs. Best I have ever had.

The ribs were great, just the way I remember them from Carsons years ago. We went early and got right in. The BBQ salmon was awesome. Had the twice baked potatoes which were wonderful.

We asked for a good restaurant to eat steak and this truly is. The atmosphere is nice with a lot of sports memorabilia and the staff are friendly. We had a really good time here. Recommended!

Food is good but you can go broke buying their thimble sized drinks. No Happy Hour either. Been going there for 19 years. They quit doing a lot of their promotional stuff and we probably will cut back on our visits. Just can't understand why they can't pour a good drink.
