We found ourselves staying overnight in Fort Smith, Arkansas and needed to find a place for supper. A quick check on TripAdvisor pointed us to Doe's Eat Place. We arrived to find the restaurant had no available tables, but they offered the patio. Since we were hungry, we were happy with the arrangement. The server was very helpful and attentive... More

This place knows how to serve some meat! There are steaks on the menu that I can't even finish. The shrimp appetizer is excellent. They make homemade tamales too. You must try them excellent. I finished out dinner polishing off a bottle of Rombauer Cabernet.

Best steak ever. Been lots of high $$ steaks places and this beats them all! And on top of that prices are much more reasonable.

Want a huge, perfect steak? This is the place. When my husband has important customers in town, they are taken here. Don't choose the large stone room for parties. The acoustics are terrible.

I payed $150.00 for a over priced meal. A Bottle of overpriced vinegar tasting wine for $40.00, 2 side salads that tasted like a plastic bag unwashed full of gritty sand, and 2 boiled potatoes. Along with a tough gristle cut of steaks.

Hello! I apologize for not responding sooner, but I must have missed your review. I wanted to take a minute and apologize for your bad experience here. This does not represent a typical dining experience here. I'm so sorry. We would have been more than happy to replace your bottle of wine and steak for you. Quality and service are... More
