In terrible location. Very, very rundown. Floors unlevel. Could see the ground and grass outside through the wall at the floor. Lots of flies inside. Our table was in the kitchen no more than 36" away from the stove where they were frying French fries. I could not eat the limp, soggy salad. No dressing options, either. Only Italian. 2... More

Does is the best steak in the Delta!! It is an experience to eat at Doe's, and the steaks are wonderful, but the broiled shrimp are excellent as well! And the staff is as friendly as family. The salads are humble but delicious - ask for anchovies if you want them on your salad. But a reservation is always a... More

This place is the real deal and no mistaking. Walk in off the street to be hit by a blast of hot air from the meat grill and the fabulous smells of cooking. The place will be full and lively, you may have to share a table as we did: not a problem as we met the charming Stokes family... More

Doe’s Eat Place is just minutes from downtown Greenville, Mississippi. It is in a small wood frame in the middle of a neighborhood. Let me just say the walking into Doe’s was like walking into my grandmother’s home, warm and inviting. We were greeted outside the building and even without reservations, ushered in and quickly seated. The first thing you’ll... More

What a great experience! We love visiting restaurants that are American icons and this place is one of the best. Our meal was delicious and the staff was so nice to our girls. They loved grabbing their own pop cans from the cooler and enjoyed their Spaghetti & Meatballs even more. The BBQ shrimp, tamales, and filet were cooked to... More

Not the best in my opinion. Yes the steaks are big with lots of flavor but in my case overcooked. Are party of 6 was over run by a group of 15 in a room that should hold 10-12. Doe's is a landmark and should not be missed. We were dinning on a Tuesday night thinking it would be less... More

The original Doe's in Greenville, MS is a truly unique dining experience. It's in an old house in an old part of town and from the outside doesn't look like much except for the number of vehicles parked on the street. As you go inside you actually walk through the kitchen area and are guided to a room with tables.... More

The front entrance is the kitchen. The food is awesome. Tamales are really good. Got my order to go, but would have loved to stay and eat.

Does is a Greenville (if not Mississippi) establishment. The service is fantastic and the food is phenomenal. The building is run down, but it adds to the charm. I would highly recommend Does!

This place is fantastic, perfectly cooked giant steaks in a historic part of the city. Everything about Doe's Good Eats is unique, interesting and delicious. The salad dressing made by one of the original family members is simple yet unbelievably good. This meal is worth a wait if necessary to complete your visit to Greenville. Don't miss this!!
