  • Mediocre
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/16/2014
    Our recent visit could best be described as mediocre. The server was polite and professional, perhaps a bit lacking in enthusiasm. The appetizer and martins were the highlight of the meal, steaks were not as flavorful as our last visit. As we have family members in the restaurant business, and know how hard servers usually work to earn their gratuities , we left a $40.00 tip on a $130.00 bill. On our way out we were completely ignored by our server and other employees milling about the front. I doubt we will return.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    I found the veal chop rather tasteless and very underwhelming for $35. Creamed spinach - watery! Mashed potatoes - no body, thin and soupy. Overall, an underwhelming meal... I did not complain since I brought a son-in-law and a daughter-in-law for a birthday celebration and did not want to ruin their evening. Nice atmosphere, but overpriced and disappointing.

    First, let me say, we love Lewnes. We have been coming here for many years because the steaks are perfect and we like the servers. Not so much this past Friday night on the steaks. They were just warm when served and they were not seared on the top like they usually are. The service was very slow but didn't appear to be that busy. I'm not sure what happened, but we will be back to see if this was an anomoly.

    Not big meat eaters but when we want a splurge, no place better to go. Food is awesome, wine list top notch and service perfect. Roasted oysters are not on the menu but when my daughter inquired, preparing them for her was a no-brainer. Lewnes' - not to be missed

    We were looking for a quiet steak house to have a "last" meal with our family and this was perfect. Quiet, super comfortable booths, excellent service, perfectly prepared foods and even a present of a yummy brownie/ice cream/whipped cream confection for dessert made this worth the drive and the cost! We each had a different type of steak and all thought ours was the best. The generous portions also made for great leftovers the next day. Thanks for a memorable evening

    Great food and top professional service. Wine list is excellent and prices are high but reasonable. Ambience is classic steakhouse: dark and well-appointed but not loud. Only issue is parking - not a lot of street parking and no private lot, that said - it's worth any walk you might have to make.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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...

    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.

    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'.

    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.
