Old town atmosphere.

An old brewery is now Ft Smith's popular restaurant for expensive steak dinners and has a bar upstairs. Located about 4 blocks off Garrison Avenue, downtown near the river. You may need reservations if you have more than two in your party.

This place was located off the main area of town so there is lots of parking. The place reminded me of a castle with all stone on the inside. The parts I saw were pretty dark, but it had character. The menu is very clear about what to expect with each steak and let you know they are very large.... More

We went on a Saturday night and apparently you get good seating if you have reservations. We got there @ 5pm when they opened and were the first one in line. We were put @ a table in a very dark area right by the kitchen and we were in a corner. We never got to see any other part... More

When you eat here, ask to be sat in Justin's area...this guy is fun. Just let your guard down and enjoy his personality. As for the food: Salad is nice and refreshing. Steaks are massive in size. They taste amazing. If you get fries, ask for a small dish of the steak juice to dip them in (or if you're... More

Great local place for steaks that cut like butter. Get there early or make a reservation...it's usually busy and service is relaxed.

A Fort Smith landmark steak house located in a beautiful old restored building. The steaks are good, the ambience nice but the delivery is flawed by lousy salad, cheap plastic dishes, inattentive service and tiny paper napkins.

If you really need a steak, Doe's is your place. Great meat, cooked properly, and coupled with sides and bread that make for a wonderful meal. Service was very good. We sat upstairs and outside to enjoy the spring evening, but that did not seem to lessen the attention we received. Great sweet tea as well. All in all a... More

The only good thing about my experience at this restaurant was the stake. It was really good and the wine was a perfect match for the stake. On the other hand, the service was below average, with a waiter always in a hurry, although the restaurant was not busy by any means, and he was dressed rather like a pizza... More
