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

Yeah, best steak I've ever had a restaurant. I am normally unimpressed by steaks prepared at other restaurants because I feel like I can prepare one better at home but not at Does. The steak was amazing and huge! Pricey but worth it. Service was timely and attentive. If I would have a criticism I would say off the beaten... More

The steak here is way better than Ruth's Chris and the location is in a historic brewery! Request to be seated on the main floor as the seating in the lower level can be loud.

First time Doe's, so wasn't sure what to expect, but it was my birthday so I wanted to treat myself. I was seated promptly and was given a menu. First place I've ever been to that charged by the pound for a steak. I chose the 11oz Filet with fries, cooked Medium. The salad was basic, but the Bleu Cheese... More
