“A hit with fans”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

A good choice for steaks, ribs (it's related to Chicago's renowned Carson's family), chicken, etc., this is an obligatory stop for baseball fans -- especially during spring training, when the place is crawling with players (mostly veterans), coaches and ballwriters. Walls are literally covered with memorabilia, and the signed-baseball collection is remarkable, but don't think this is a sports bar. In fact, the bar area is kind of tight. This is relaxed, white-tablecloth, two-martini dining. . . and unless the kids are into martinis, leave 'em home.

“Great place I have been missing for many years”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We have not been to Don & Charlie's for 15 years. Went last night and it was great. They were really busy for a Sunday night. The huge meal was fantastic. Don't miss the creamy coleslaw.

“Good as always”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We usually go to Don & Charlie's 2-3 times per year. Our favorite dish is the ribs, of course. My company just had a large group gathering, they put us in the backroom - nice, I've never been back there - they were very efficient in serving such a large group. A note to regulars - they are no longer carrying Fat Tire :( and now have an Oak Creak Amber in its place - still prefer Fat Tire myself...
