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

My wife visited Doe's for our wedding anniversary the first week of May 2015 and were pleasantly surprised on the interior atmosphere of the building. Our wait staff were great and informed us that Doe's building may be the second oldest building in the city of Fort Smith. The inside was very cool with large stone floors that were uneven... More

This restaurant is absolutely fantastic. The service is great! It's located in an old brewery, so the atmosphere is very cool. The best thing about this place is the steak. I'm from a big city and have been to a lot of steak restaurants and this place serves the best steak I have ever had!
