Must be one of the best places in the country for a perfect cut of meat cooked to perfection. The Filet Mignon is second to none and the Ribeye is succulent with flavor. I recommend the French fries along with the house salad to complement the meal. The wine and beer selection is also extensive and the waiters and waitresses... More

The steaks were excellent and cooked to the perfect temperature as requested. Service was also great. However the sides were not up to par...green beans tasted like canned green beans and fries were dry.

We chose Doe's during our travels because of the steak. Unfortunately we did not get the same experience as others did for the food. The interior of the restaurant used to be an old brewery. It has been refitted into a restaurant leaving the original stone floors, walls and wood beams. It is very dark in here because of this.... More

This place served the best steak I've ever had, hands down! The cowboy cut ribeye is amazing, melt in your mouth good! I will definitely be visiting another Doe's shortly!

If you're ever looking for that great steak in Fort Smith, look no further. There is honestly no other choice so Doe's beats out the rest of the competition by default. As regulars, we go for the filet and we are never let down. There is also a nice bar with some very good drinks. Enjoy yourself!

After our check arrived we noticed on the bottom portion, "special Monday's 20percent off on t bones..." service was great, but could have been better if we had known. The beef here is exceptional. Pricey, but worth the experience. The biscuits are a plus if you are after a delicious way to increase your cholesterol grease levels. Bottom line, special... More

This restaurant is not where you'd expect to find it. It's not down town. It's not by a mall. It's in the middle of I don't know how to describe the neighborhood, but the closest description is an industrial district. The serve these fried "rolls"? Yummy. I don't remember what they called them. The steaks are the bomb! Ambiance is... More
