We were traveling through Ft. Smith and asked a local to recommend a great restaurant. Their reply was Doe's Eats Place. What a surprise! Don't be put off by the run down location or the parking. It is a great place for real food. The steaks are thick and juicy. The price was reasonable for what we received in high... More

I have visited this Doe's and the one in Fayetteville. They have the best steaks. No comparison. The atmosphere is nicer at the one in Fort Smith, especially for what you pay.

Visited Doe's for our anniversary. The food is excellent and the steak is fantastic! Cooked to perfection and the quality is without comparison. The wine list was nice and the suggestion was appreciated. Excellent service.

Although it is very pricey, it is worth it for the atmosphere and the special occasion! EVen for a non- drinker such as I, the nonalcoholic drinks were a treat!

We just left Does and this is the best steak place ever!!! We are from Texas and always looking for good steak restaurants. If you are in Ft. Smith, Arkansas you have to eat here. Ask for Justin, he was our waiter and so friendly.

If you want a big steak they have them. The steak was great but very expensive. Had to try it but you would have to share a steak to afford it very often.

We stopped in on a Friday night about 8:00 p.m. The restaurant was sold out of all cuts except the 11 ounce fillets and two pound t-bones (yep, a two pound t-bone ... let that one sink in). Deciding that our life spans are rather important, the three of us selected the fillets. The steaks were very flavorful and cooked... More

I and my husband visited Doe's eat place 2/18/17. First off, even though we made a reservation in advance and there was only one other couple that walked in after us along with lots of empty tables, we had to wait for longer than 20 minutes. Then we were escorted to upstairs bar which we could not believe they took... More

I went to Trip Advisor for a referral and chose Doe's...it was awesome. Our server suggested we share a dinner because the steaks are so big. We ordered the bone-in ribeye. For $63 we got 2 salads, 2 load baked potatoes, the fried biscuits (amazing) and two ice teas AND the most beautiful 2 inch thick ribeye we have ever... More
