    The Steaks here are always excellent as are the cocktails. I had the 2lb Porterhouse T-Bone cooked rare and it came out perfect. Of course I could not eat it all in one sitting so I have a wonderful steak for supper tonight. The House salad is my favorite and I get my steaks with the made in house French fries. They prepare blur cheese stuffed olives for my Martini which I also always order. We also ordered a dozen tamales for the table which come with chili on the side, very, very good. Over all a fun place with excellent food.

    We were a party of 6, and had a most enjoyable evening. The service and the food are top notch, remaining steadfast through the years that we’ve been going there. Because the price of EVERYTHING has skyrocketed, the total cost of the meal sort of stung a bit but no fault of the restaurant itself. We have always enjoyed the casual atmosphere where we are comfortable in the surroundings while enjoying a delectable meal. That makes it all worth it!!!

    I think there are much better steakhouses in Baton Rouge for the price you are paying. The ribeye was okay, cooked well but the seasoning was lacking. The sides were disappointing - mac and cheese tasted like butter noodles, creamed spinach was basically queso with a handful of spinach tossed in, the bread tasted like beignets without sugar, the mashed potatoes tasted like it came from a box - the smothered greens were the best side. For the quality, I would put it on par with Texas Roadhouse, however, it is close to triple the price. Everything else - the service, atmosphere, etc. - was great, but it doesn't justify ever going back to eat.

    NEVER fails to deliver!!!! Fun, informal & DELICIOUS!!!! Being the end of Restaurant Month, we branched out and tried several of their special menu items. All were great! Ribeye steaks, braised short ribs, NOLA-style BBQ shrimp & filets plus their KILLER tamales! Was a fantastic way to celebrate several January and February birthdays. Looking forward to our next meal there, Per usual, it'll be like going back home for a great family gathering.

    Nice place, the tamales were good. We had a waiter that wanted to be anywhere else than at our table. He would disappear for li g periods of time and them was very uninterested in helping us with two steaks that were extremely under cooked.

    Doe's never disappoints me. We ordered from the restaurant week menu, and while it wasn't my usual Porterhouse, my ribeye was great. The greens were to die for, and the dessert (tres leches cake) was really good. Service was great, and we had a great evening.

    We do not live in Baton Rouge but the drive to Doe's is well worth the time. We try to eat there as often as possible. The Tamales as an appetizer are great and the steaks are wonderful. The steaks are flavorful, juicy and very tender. I like to get the French Fries with my steak but sometimes order it with the new potatoes. They serve a unique bread that is almost like a round small cake donut and with the honey provided at the table, you will fight over them. My server, Mary, always has a Martini for me when I sit down and a very cold beer for my Wife. The food is excellent and the service could not be better. A great restaurant that fills the bill if you like steak. They have other types of dishes but I go there for the steak and therefore can not comment on the others.

    Enjoyed a casual dinner with friends. Service was well-paced, and drinks came quickly. Steaks were outstanding, as always. House salad was tasty, but had too many dark greens for me. Love the fries, and there are a lot of them.
