Our food came out Luke warm. The salads were the best part of the meal. My husband ordered the spicy broasted chicken & ribs, broasted chicken should be crispy, it was soggy, ribs were tough. I had the twin filets, while tender, they ere cool also. Won"t be back.

Took my wife here for her birthday. The menu has a lot of options and you can't miss out on the steak options. All of the sports memorabilia is fun to look at. Don't miss out on this place!

Fun crowd place with excellent service. I had the baby back ribs that were "OK" not fall off the bone. My wife had the steak filet which was great. Had a great time talking to people around us which made our time very here wonderful. A must place to try when your in Scottsdale.

Sports memorabilia is enough to visit for! Then add the great apps, come slaw, and perfectly done prime rib and filet mignon and this an absolute must visit when in Scottsdale!

This is more of a follow up review as I love D&C's in my last review I complained about the cocktail cherries. Well my last visit and they had a delicious dark cherry in my manhattan. I give it a big thumbs up and thanks for taking my review to heart much appreciated now that's what I call service.

We were here nonspring training time and it was still packed on a Saturday night. Waits without reservations were 45 min. We had a reservation and got seated right away. This is a traditional Chicago steakhouse.I loved my filet. However, the ribs were also excellent. The chocolate cake was sinful. Excellent wine selection.

This is an old established restaurant with the walls covered with baseball memorabilia and other sports. The food is very good. If you like ribs the ribs "Don's" style are outstanding. Steaks are also good. The service is very good. Don't expect a quiet place, it is very noisy. Reservations should be made.

The food at Don and Charlie's is good, consistent and plentiful. I was in town with a friend from Chicago and he was in the mood for comfort food. Nothing says "Chicago" more than Don and Charlie's. I think the owners were originally from Chicago. Meat dishes dominate most of the menu but that is not uncommon for a Windy... More
