Pretty good steaks but a bit pricey

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... read 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!

The steaks were cooked perfectly. Wishes the sides had more flavor. Loved the building and environment.. Just very pricy 😉

I will be traveling to Fort Smith several more times for business. I will make this restaurant one of my staple tops every time I visit. The owners know exactly what they are doing. A bit pricey, but definitely worth it. Food, service, building...... everything was perfect. I was not paid to write this review, I just really enjoyed the... More

Celebrated our 42nd anniversary at Doe's this past December in conjunction with our friends in celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and New Years Eve! Shared the King filet with my husband and it is 14 ounces of pure deliciousness! So tender and juicy it nearly melts in your mouth! The menu sides are limited but you can't go wrong with the new...

My husband went to this restaurant for our 31st anniversary. I had heard about it for years. It is housed in a historic business and if you get to eat in the basement (we didn't), you can see the original full arch ceiling made completely of dry stacked stones. Ask to see it if you aren't seated there. I suppose... More
