I love Doe's with my family for special occasions. It isn't anything fancy, but it is pricey. The steaks are well worth it, though.

Every Doe's is a bit unique per their single digit locations. But the steaks are as good as you will have anywhere. Every time people come into town, they are frankly shocked by the quality of the meat AND the wine list.

This place does not look great from the outside but it is definitely a unique experience. Do not wear heels! :) The interior looks like the inside of a cave from floor to ceiling.

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.

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.
