Diner Reviews
  • "We went to Lewnes for my birthday. For what their prices are, we thought the food was going to be amazing. It was good, but not for the price we paid. The server was nice, but did not wow us either. There are other places in Annapolis we would rather spend the money."

  • "We've been coming to Lewnes SteakHouse for the past 10 years and always enjoy a consistently delicious meal. The food isn't fancy, but it's cooked perfectly!"

  • "even though it is a 90 minute drive from home, Lewnes is our favorite restaurant. We always go there for special occasions. We even make up a special occasion reason to justify going, especially if we have not been there in awhile. The service is aways top-notch and the food cooked to perfection."

  • "Great service by our waiter John. Extensive serious wine list with offerings to please high and low budgets. Steak cooked to perfection, mashed potatoes were a little "soupy". Better steak and wine than the well know chain steakhouse down the street."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Probably the best steak you can get in the greater Baltimore area, but raid your piggy bank before you go because this place is expensive. Great for special occasions. Excellent wine list but prices are multiples of retail cost. All part of the experience!"

  • "Took my wife here for our 10th wedding anniversary, couldn't have picked a better location! The food was amazing, the service was outstanding, the ambiance wado perfect. We will definitely return in the future for special occasions. Just make sure to take your wallet, you get what you pay for and this one isn't cheap."

  • "They need valet parking. Such an elegant restaurant, BUT NOTHING in the way of parking. I personally would have paid extra to have some park the car. It was pouring rain that night."

  • "Great local gourmet place for steaks. Our service was great as was the steak and wine."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Mashed potatoes - better than grandma's! Creamed spinach - to die for! Steak - cooked to perfection. Lamb chops --- must have been a BIG lamb --- meaty & tender. Only disappointment: Had hoped Charlie would perform Ave Maria at our table!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Great staff, good drinks from the bar. Great wine list. Food not up to par. Steaks not cooked properly (they were done Chicago style, burnt on outside raw in the inside) not a good cut of meat for ribeye, was obviously an end cut which I was not expecting from a place that serves prime rib as well. wife had the filet mignon which lacked seasoning and was charred, tasted burnt. Sides - mash potatoes were soupy...so pureed they were watery and no flavor; asparagus cooked properly, but no real flavor; mushrooms roasted in the oven and okay Was our anniversary and they brought us a desert on the house, which was a nice touch, but not the desert my wife was planning on for our anniversary and they never asked... Desert was okay..."

  • "Lewnes is a perfect place to celebrate an anniversary or birthday. The food is always cooked perfectly . And the wait staff goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and help you understand the menu and wine."

  • "The best beef steak anywhere. Also the best tuna steak. The Lewnes family have maintained this goldmine of a restaurant for years and they have found the best receipe for the perfect dining experience."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Nice place that has terrific service. Bar and wait staff were very accommodating and professional. All steaks were cooked as ordered. The bread served was okay, good be heated up more and have a better crust on it ( too soft ). I had the lamb chops which were good but not stellar, a rack of lamb instead might be a better option. The big negative was the wine list that should have a better selection of more affordable bottles. The cheapest was $60.00 and goes up pretty fast. Despite that sticker shock, we would still recommend Lewnes, just have a bottle of wine at home ready when you return!"

  • "Based on reviews and recommendations from others, we chose Lewne's as the location for my son's "last supper" before he entered the Naval Academy. The food was great and the wait staff very accommodating and personable. She was well aware of the occasion and went out of her way to set my son's mind at ease. Highly recommend."

  • "Already known for its steaks, Lewnes also did a fab job on the yellowfin tuna. Veggie sides were also very good, and service over the top."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "I wanted to try a "different" steakhouse and I was very disappointed. The food was at best average, and the service even worse. The parking situation was very poor as well. I should have gone across the street to Ruth Chris."

    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. The steaks were top quality and cooked perfectly. In a more quiet neighborhood an easy walk from the main street scene of Annapolis. My only negative was the classic steakhouse decor; it was a little dark for a beautiful summer evening in Annapolis."

  • "We love Lewnes. It is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. Fantastic sides as well as entrees."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "All of the food was excellent. Our appetizers, delicious, salads fresh, steaks ,perfect and prime rib was juicy and perfectly cooked. Sides were great. The wine selection was really good and not terribly overpriced as are many restaurants in this neighborhood. Good experience for all 6 of us."

  • "We have dined at Lewnes' steakhouse several times and have come to expect great tasting steaks. This time our steak had little flavor, though we did not complain/comment to our server. Everything else was wonderful, except the noise level from the table behind us - way to loud for the dining area and something we have never experienced at Lewnes'."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "If you love beef, then this is the place to be. We sampled Filet Mignon, Ribeye cut, and Prime Ribs - all simply outstanding. Our knowledgeable waiter, John, provided frank guidance ensuring all orders met - and exceeded - expectations."

  • "We love going to Lewnes Steakhouse for our special occasion dinners. The food is fantastic and we love the large booths - very private. We try and get Nick as our waiter when we eat there - just superb service. Thank you for making our experience that much more pleasurable."

  • "My wife and I went to Lewnes' Steakhouse for our Anniversary, and everything was great! She had a filet, and I had the lamb chops. Both were delicious. The sides are served separately on the table in big bowls so we can each take what we want. We ordered the creamed spinach, onion rings and the lyonnaise potatoes, are of which were excellent, as were the drinks we ordered. The waiter was always there when we needed him, friendly and helpful."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "This is our special occasion restaurant. In this case the occasion was an out of town guest. She loved it, of course. In all the times I have been at Lewnes', I have had beef, but on this occasion I had tuna for a change. Also excellent."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "I almost called the restaurant number while dining so I can get help with my poorly done steak. Waiter was no where to be found. He didn't check back after serving. My first time here and will not return. "

  • "Second time in Lewne's and will be back. This time our waitress was not as "good"/"professional" as the first one. Service was not quite right on this time but we still like the food and ambience."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The resteraunt has a really nice cozy feel (no windows). Our server was nice but slow. It took 2 hours to complete our meal. The food was average and overpriced. I had the filet mignon medium well and it came out burnt. My husband had the lobster which he enjoyed. Mashed potatoes were goood too. Crab cakes were let down. Overall probably wouldnt go back. Food was way overpriced for quality. "

  • "My family and I went to Lewnes to celebrate a graduation. They were able to accommodate our group easily and we ended up with a room to ourselves for most of the meal, which was great. All of the food was fantastic - particularly the prime rib. All of the sides were great and our service was great. I would recommend Lewnes for a special occasion or a romantic night out. Great ambiance and delicious food! "

  • "Lewnes has an old school charm only found in independent restaurants. The service was friendly and attentive. The ambience is old and a little crusty, but in a good way that makes you feel at home. When we arrived, we were seated upstairs, which is creepy and dingy. We asked to move downstairs and were accomadated, which was much better. While my steak was first rate, the sides were so-so. Creamed spinach was average, onion rings were sub-par. We tried some of the desserts and all were excellent. My only other complaint is that our bread, which was served warm, had clearly been reheated a few times to hide the fact that it was pretty stale. So, sit downstairs and stick to the entrees, wine list and desserts and you'll leave happy. "

  • "OVER THE TOP!!! Everything was excellent. Nick is a great server. His recommendations where spot on. Really enjoyed our fifth anniversary and will be back for our sixth...probably won't wait that long...smile "

  • "Went to check out this very old steakhouse on a recommendation. The ambiance was that of a very old building. Booths large and private, dark and very quiet. Steaks were good, nothing I would return for. The server did get us a very nice brownie dessert and coffee for free since we had never been there before. With all the restaurants located within such a small area, parking was not available even at 5 pm. "

  • "Lewnes' is our go-to place for special occasions. The beef is absolutely excellent. I'm told by friends that the fish and lamb are first rate too, but I have never personally tried them. The appetizers and salads are, for us at least, too large for one person. They can be split into two portions and still seem generous (indeed three or even four could share a salad, it seems to me). A half portion of a spinach side dish was more than enough for the two of us. The wine list is wonderful, although pricey. Service is excellent. Tables and booths are well spaced. We go to Lewnes' perhaps three times a year. Like all good steak houses, Lewnes' is expensive (c. $200 including tax and tip with a lower end bottle of wine). "
