“One of the Top Fort Smith restaurants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

This is a great restaurant in Fort Smith. Tucked away in a corner of downtown Fort Smith, this is an upscale restaurant with top notch service and very good food quality. Can't go wrong ordering anything on the menu. Enjoy!

“Best in Fort Smith”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

21 has the best food in Fort Smith. Their filet and seafood dishes are delicious. Beware of their "Black Martini" as it is awesome and can easily turn into several rounds before dinner is finished.

“Best filet in Arkansas...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Dined here twice in the past few months and had two excellent meals. Have not had a bad dish. The filet is phenomenal. Skip Doe's and go to 21 West End for hands-down the best steak in Ft. Smith.

“Business Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

The old town Fort Smith atmosphere is compelling. After a wonderful specialty martini, we ordered filet mignons. Both were incrediblly tender and cooked to perfection. The steak was so tender that butter knives were the only thing provided to cut the steaks. I was able to shave my bites with no problem. The merlot reduction sauce with spinach and goat cheese was to die for.

I highly recommend this restaurant for a business or romatic dinner.

“Stepped up its game the last few years!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

I must say that 21 West End has stepped up its game in a major way the last 2-3 years. I had the best filet I've ever had in Fort Smith about 3 weeks ago. Cooked perfectly Medium Rare. Decent wine selection.....and SERVICE HAS GOTTEN MUCH BETTER! Thank you Kevin for turning this place around and bringing out its potential.

Apricot Brie is awesome.... I always go with the house salad...9oz filet was perfect.

Only negative is I wish there was more of a main course selection.
