“Great steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

If yo like beef this is the place. Thick cut steaks sold by the pound. A Porterhouse is enough for 2 or 3 people. The sides are homemade and they have really good tamales. Great bar service as well.

“Pretty pricey, but worth the money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

In my opinion Doe's is the best steak in the area. I have had people and work colleagues from around the country come here and say that they have eaten steak around the country and haven't had a steak as good as the one that they had at Doe's. They charge by the pound, so it's not cheap, but if you want a special place to go in a really neat environment, Doe's Eat Place is the place to go. It is located in the old Joseph Noble Brewery and is on the National Historic Register. Great building!

“Good place for Stake, make sure you have an apetite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

Somewhat unique place located in an industrial area.
Place is a little outdated, a makeover would not hurt.........
It is a Steak House, the Steaks are big......a small size for a not so big apetite is not possible, which is to bad, the only option is to share.
I was not impressed with the Bar and Wine list, very basic.
Service is friendly but not very professional, they can use some training in serving and handle a bottle of wine......
While not being very professional, our server "Eli" did go the extra mile to satisfy his customers which is nice for a change, keep up the good work Eli....
The Steaks, (T-Bone and Filet) were exellent, well seasoned and grilled to perfection, I will go back for the Steak.....
I will not call this a place for fine dining in a romantic atmosphere........
A place to experience when in Forth Smith,AR.

“Steaks are incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

Go for the steaks---have a tamale as an appetizer!
The atmosphere, the food---it's all wonderful.
We go with friends or sometimes just the two
of us and we have always been delighted.
