The petite filets were both cooked exactly as ordered, were extremely tender and very flavorful. The Greek salad was very fresh and flavorful. The baked potato could have been baked a little longer because it was huge. Our waitress claimed that the key lime pie was the best in town and we agreed.

Slow Sunday night for them so our area of the dining room was nearly (eerily) silent but that was fine with us. I am sure on busier nights it gets a bit louder.

That said - would absolutely recommend. Don't blow your money on the chain steakhouse across the street. Support the local business!

From our initial contact to our greeting to seating to service, it was outstanding...Chris, our server was on top of everything we needed...from the wine pouring, to the service etc., it was outstanding.

I would recommend your restaurant to any one I come into contact with that is looking for an outstanding steakhouse and I have been to many like the Metropolitan in Seattle, to New York, San Francisco etc.

Well done and thank you...David P. Gerlach, Sr.

Lewnes' Steakhouse is a definite gem in the heart of Annapolis. You will enjoy the quiet setting, the soft music, the excellent service and exquisite and delicious menu items. Our server Dave was knowledgeable, entertaining and quite attentive to our every need. We will be returning soon to enjoy another wonderful evening of dining and conversation.

As someone who is frequently taking clients to NYC steakhouses, I can easily say that the steaks and lobster at Lewnes that my wife and I enjoyed were on par with the finest city steaks Ive ever had. Couple this with a friendly bartender, a knowlegeable and helpful waiter, and the personal touch of having the owner himself stopping by for a quick chat...this was a first class experience. Great food, great staff, great ambiance! I hope to go back soon.

Our first and look fwd to next dinner...loved our meal, great wine list and service. Mostly.
Issue: Husband ordered Beefeater Martini. Taste was off. Too much vermouth? Server brought second martini and then said oh, by the way, this was Bombay as was first. “Out of Beefeaters”. Really? Did someone mix up the B-gins? Never mess with a man’s martini. Should have asked first. And might be good to review Martini 101 “extra dry”. Expect good cocktails would be slam dunk here.

The food was good but not great. My husband said he can make a better steak at home. We waited a long time for our food to come out which also didn’t help. We won’t be back.

It was my In-Laws wedding anniversary.
Food is always delicious and the atmosphere is warm, classic and always cozy.

The worst part of the evening and set the night off poorly was our waiter. He was frank, rude and cold. Not that we are looking for a best friend but when you are spending at least $300 for a dinner, a certain level of service IS expected. My In Laws were very taken back by his rudeness. Very dissatisfying for the restaurant.

We were disappointed once again - perhaps our expectations are too high. We hadn't been to Lewnes in a few years because of our last mediocre meal a while ago. We decided to try it again but unfortunately had the same results. My wife's $90 lobster was soggy and overdone. My New York strip was okay, but overloaded with garlic. The mashed potatoes were beyond salty. The server was very pleasant but the food was a huge disappointment.

The steaks at Lewnes are second to none. I come here annually for my birthday with my daughters and get a filet mignon every time. It tastes amazing, is consistent and tender, and they have very generous portions. The simple elegance of the atmosphere is comforting and refreshing. I'm already dreaming about my trip back next year!

Great steak! My husband and I like to go for special occasions. We get two sides to share with our steaks. Servers are always very polite and professional. We usually
Spend about $200-$250 with a tip when ordering wine and dinner. They have given complimentary dessert for both my birthday and my husbands birthday.

Heard a lot of great things from friends. Food was great but it was RUINED by the awful waitress we had. Ordered a cosmo for my wife and before I could request vodka she rushed off. It was the same thing with everything we would order. She waited on us as if she was doing us a favor. Absolutely terrible...she ruined what we thought would be a great time.
