Made reservations for 7PM, arrived early and was seated right away. My girlfriends birthday, host came by to wish her a happy birthday and desert was on the house. Food was excellent, service was great, very nice atmosphere. A place to go if you want to be alone with your date.

Solid dinner .
The food is amazing. Best Greek salad I have ever had. Veal Chop was perfectly seasoned and cooked. I mean perfect! Wine selection is great, and recently heard that you can bring your our wine (corking fee applies, obviously)...great idea!

Lewnes's doesn't disappoint. It is very similar to A Ruth's Chris type steakhouse but independent, locally owned and operated. You get a nice feel for that local ownership with the service staff, many of whom are family.

Everything was fantastic! The service, food, atmosphere, and location combined make this restaurant exceptional. The aged steaks are well worth the cost! I would like to find something to say that could be improved, but during our dinner everything was perfect. Lewnes is not inexpensive, but the establishment does provide an exceptional total dining experience.

Service was too slow - server was knowledgeable but assumed never asked how to pace the meal. It was our first time there so we had a lot of questions about the food and menu.
Salad which had the word special in it was not special - lamb was great. Potatoe chips were over cooked - she called them French fries. She never offered hollandaise for our meat - not planning to return.

Lewnes offers a lovely old-time ambiance that you rarely get anymore- nice and dark enough for intimate conversation and feeling like you're the only ones there. The steaks are beautifully prepared and always tender and why we return again and again. This time, we brought our new neighbors, both steak-lovers, who said it was the best restaurant experience they'd ever had! To round out this review, the service is caring but not intrusive. It was as if we were the waiter's only diners.
We'll be back.

The server, Amy, was wonderful. She was there when we needed her and let us take our time. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and really helped us enjoy the evening and the delicious food. The clams casino were great, they had a crunchiness on the outside and a creaminess on the inside. The crab balls needed a little more crab. We split the cowboy steak which was done to perfection. The mashed potatoes were rich and smooth. The creamed spinach had a little sweet taste that had me intrigued. All of the staff were friendly and did their jobs very well. It seemed like everyone worked as a team. We had a very wonderful evening, the food could not have been better. At the end, we were surprised with a brownie with ice cream which capped off a lovely evening.

Our server was excellent. She made perfect recommendations. We let the staff know it was our wedding anniversary and our dessert and coffe was comped. The steak was delicious and the sides were fantastic. We have dropped over $300 for a comparable dinner in Vegas (our check was half of that). We had a wonderful time.

We had a pleasant experience. It was our first time there celebrating my husband's birthday. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The Food was FANTASTIC! Hands down the best steak I have had thus far. They even gave my husband a complimentary birthday dessert. I would go back and recommend them. Thank You Lewnes for an Awesome experience.

My husband and I went to Lewnes Steakhouse with another couple. The other couple had been very kind to us and we wanted to treat them to a great dinner. Well, it absolutely turned out to be a GREAT dinner. The atmosphere, the service, the food and the entire night was fantastic. Thank you for a top notch evening.

Really outstanding in every way. Love this place and will be back. Everything was prepared perfectly - outstanding talent of the Chef; Service was outstanding - attentive but not intrusive and helpful with choices, explanations, etc.; Atmosphere was lovely - steakhouse and Annapolis charm blended for a relaxing, upscale dining experience. Don't change a thing !!!!

Very disappointed in food. I ordered lamb chops and requested they be cooked to medium rare. When the lamb chops came they looked and tasted like someone had microwaved them first then put them on the grill. The texture was poor...they were still cool in the middle. My son had roast beef. It arrived arrived in swimming pool of juice. I have never seen anything like it. There was so much juice the waitress spill a good quarter of a cup just serving it. It seem like the roast beef had been cook a long time ago. Very little taste.

Made reservations but table wasn't ready upon arrival. Once seated, took 30 minutes to order. After we told the waiter we were now a bit pressed for time, the service was excellent. Food was good, but not great for the price. Sides are advertised as enough for two; when they brought out the baked potato, it was large, but was simply served on a plate - was not cut into two, no butter or extras, etc. Salad was small
Parking is also a challenge.
All in all, a good restaurant, but not great. A little pricy for the quality. Will look for other options next time we're in town.

Our anniversary celebration at Lewnes' confirmed the obvious: it is a reason to visit Annapolis, we'll definitely dine here again. The steaks (porterhouse and New York strip) were cooked to perfection, appetizers and wine were superb. Just a reminder that this place is more formal and on the expensive side.

We have been to Lewnes many times. It is our favorite restaurant in Annapolis. The steaks are delicious and always cooked to perfection. The dinners come a la carte but the sides are generous portions served family style. This is a great restaurant for special occasions because the noise level is kept to a minimum and you don't have to scream to be heard by the other people at your table/booth.
The wait staff is professional and service is excellent. The wine list is very extensive with prices ranging from moderate to extravagant.

I have been there several times, but on this occasion I took my daughter for her 23rd birthday. It was her first time and she absolutely loved it. They walked us through the wine room upon request as an extra treat! Can't wait to visit again, as their steaks are perfectly cooked and always mouth watering!

Food, service, ambiance....whatever the category, Lewnes' was "spot-on". Our meals were perfectly cooked and our waiter (Richard) knew his craft....food, wine, and attentiveness....isn't that why we go to nice places. We're looking forward to our next visit to Lewnes'. Truly a treat.
When I moved to Annapolis 10 years ago, ...
When I moved to Annapolis 10 years ago, I was made aware of Lewnes' and I must admit, whomever was responsible for that deserves an undying debt of gratitude. It is a traditional steak house, but with an Annapolitan flare. You know you're in a steak house, but the casual ambience of Annapolis pervades throughout. Not to say people don't get dressed up or use it as a more formal setting for special occasions, but the regulars (who often dine at the bar) are just as likely to show up in sailing attire as they are in business attire! But don't kid yourself: People go there for hand cut, in house aged, prime beef. Their NY Strip is as good as any steakhouse in the country. They confirm the temperature (medium rare is warm red center, and that is what you'll get) and they execute it flawlessly. Split up a Greek Salad after you try the Oysters Rockefeller, and then wait for the steak and sides (Lyonnaise potatoes are always solid, creamed spinach, mushrooms, asparagus....what you expect to find in a traditional steak house is there and prepared brilliantly). The wine list is wonderful, but the highlight invariably (aside from the protein offerings) is outstanding service. They will accommodate you at every turn, with knowledgeable suggestions and a keen desire to make you very happy. Lewnes' is a gem for those who live here and for those visitors to Annapolis (and Eastport) who have been fortunate to find it during their stays!

The entire evening was a delight! Everything was amazing, Food, Waitstaff, Location and Ambiance...I highly recommend the dirty martini w/ blue cheese stuffed olives, filet and mashed potatoes (you can add in toppings) we went for bacon and blue cheese...they were awesome!

Classic steak house atmosphere and menu. Food was good even if a little bland. After 10 minutes with their "notable" wine list, we picked the perfect bottle and dinner. "Oh sorry, we ran out of that wine." Nothing worse for someone who loves wine and decides on their whole course, only to be told their choice ran out 10 minutes later after the food order is submitted. Total amateur hour.

The best steakhouse in town. Large portions on the sides (everything can be split and they can serve it split ahead of time). and the wine list is amazing, wish there would have been more than two of us so that we could indulge in another bottle. Remember Maryland now allows you to take home unfinished bottles. Waiter Nick was exceptional.

Sorry, this was as disappointment. While the crab cake was good, the filet was not hot, only warm, and not very tasty. One large baked potato for two was plunked down whole on the table. Not very elegant. While there is an extensive wine list, few are offered by the glass. Parking is hard to come by and a hassle. We won't be back.
