this scottsdale institution has been around for a long time for a reason. the food, the service and the atmosphere. we shared the world famous chopped liver. ehhhh, not great, but my daughter loved it. they chomped down on a rack of ribs which didn't stand a chance while i tried the spicy broasted chicken, it ranks in the top 3 i've ever eaten. the sides of spinach and potatoes au gratin were terrific, but the steamed broccoli was only steamed broccoli. our server was personable and seemed to be able to juggle a lot of tables without dropping a single item. the atmosphere was loud, happy and convivial. not a place to go to romance someone, but certainly enjoyable with my grown children.

Don and Charlie's Restaurant has been here forever, and reasons why!! A literal museum of baseball memorabilia, great food, great service. It has spanned decades while other restaurants have come and gone. Reservations a MUST! Every night of the week filled to capacity. Great place for memory lane with kiddos. Noisy, but worth it!

My family has been coming to Don & Charlies for years, yet I have never written a review for it. Here, they treat you like family. From the owner down to the wait staff and hostesses. It doesn't hurt that they have the best ribs in town, but there is so much more. I have had the broasted chicken, the salmon and even the burger. The best thing about Don & Charlies is consistency; consistently great. For first timers, you must get the ribs (charred) and the au gratin potatoes. The decor tells you that this place has been there for a long long time. They are just getting ready to open a patio (a good addition). Right now, this is a dinner place, but I hope they will open for lunch soon.

Cool casual steakhouse that has ton's of sports memorabilia, the night was pretty busy but had a reservation and was sat pretty promptly. Our server was nice but seemed to be in a hurry with everything, possibly since it was so busy, however it did make us feel slightly rushed. Steaks came and while were good, we not anything special especially for the price.
