Seems like yesterday the last time I really enjoyed Don & Charlie's. But it must have been several years ago because some of the significant changes that have occurred since then. Restaurant still has the club house feel. Nice setting and good service. But that's...More

I had the Parmesan Crusted New York with baked potato and a house salad. The steak was average quality for a $33 entree. Reminded me of a chain steakhouse. I suspect that one of the $40-45 steaks is better. The baked potato and house salad...More

Dear MC, Normally I would invite a guest back for dinner but you don't do average. I thank my lucky stars you are in a distinct minority. I wish you nothing but the best in your future dining endeavors.

Fun place in Scottsdale. Tons of baseball memorabilia to look at. Pam, our server, was attentive. Everyone liked their food. The crusted ribeye (44$) and the full rack of ribs (29$) were winners. I got the ribs charred as recommended with the southwest sauce, which...More

Don't bother spending too much money on less than average food. Steaks were overcooked, chicken tenders were tough, chopped steak was mealier than bad meatloaf, onion strings were not served hot and spinach/artichoke dip was dry and chalky. The mac/cheese and the twice backed potatoes...More
