Service was great; building was really interesting - very old - odd part of town, but neat building. Food (steak) was excellent. My husband and I split a ribeye and each ordered separate sides. Price was reasonable with splitting it. There was plenty to eat!...More

First you walk into this 1848 stone building...unbelievable...loads of rooms with spectacular ambience. Then you order the "huge cowboy ribeye". Ordered the state medium rare..that's how it came. Only recommendation would be that I like spinach with my steaks😆.

Every bite was excellent. The service was superb. I had broiled shrimp and my boyfriend had the filet. Even my daughter loved her meal. We could not have asked for a better dining experience. An added plus-The building is on the historic register.

We decided to dine at Doe's eat place in Ft. Smith, Arkansas during our weekend get a way. Words cannot describe how good the food and service was. It was expensive, but worth every penny. I would recommend reservations on weekends.
