The steak is the best I town, bar none. However, the sides are limited as is the menu. The salad is not noteworthy. Your bill will be high. With a few tweaks it could be AWESOME but as it is it's just so so.

Located in a historic brewery in Fort Smith, you will enjoy melt in your mouth steaks, good wine and a well stocked bar. Bring your honey and share one for only $10.00 more. While you're there, touch the 100 plus year old rock where beer was crafted for the locals.

Well, actually I make a pretty good steak on the grill but Doe's has me beat hands down. Their steaks have a wonder flavor and are so tender it is like they are pre-chewed for you. All kidding aside, the place is fantastic, the atmosphere is very unique and the staff couldn't be better

A couple of friends and I decided we wanted a steak dinner. At first we thought we had gotten lost because Doe's is off the main drag. What a place! First off it's on the national historic registry. The beer cellar is an awesome vibe but it gets loud with more than a couple tables. Kudos to the bartender. We... More

If you enjoy steaks, Doe's is a must do! Steaks and shrimp are the only entrees and the steaks are hand cut, huge and wonderful! Come hungry and you will definitely leave satisfied!

For a business dinner this was a strange place. Looks like a hole in the wall. Very rustic and old tavern kinda look. There is a bar upstairs which is nice and small. Small place there with a large screen TV for a business presentation. Folks loved it. Food tastes amazing. Especially the steak! Service was great. Not a fancy... More

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.

Thank Bruce H
