    My meal wasn’t great which is unusual at Lewnes. My filet was undercooked and the baked potato had a weird taste to it. We were so looking forward to this dinner and I left disappointed.

    Best fine steaks in Annapolis, dark and cozy atmosphere, perfect for a special occasion We usually get the beef filet but the ribeyes get high marks as well A Lewnes med-rare is like a rare other places, so if that’s your go-to, you may want to order a med-rare ‘plus’, which is an extra minute The hash browns and onion rings are superb, and be sure to try one of their signature cocktails, fantastic bartenders Matt is our favorite server, he is charming and warm and always a pleasure, but all of the staff at Lewnes in top notch

    My steak was cooked perfect but had no flavor. Didn’t seem to have any seasoning on it. The baked potato was very hard to cut into and didn’t seem very hot. I told the waitress that and her response was do you want me to go reheat it up. Ummm for $9:50 you are going to reheat it. When I took a bite of it, it was hard and over cooked. Didn’t see the waitress again until the meal was almost over, so I told her I didn’t want the potato. My husband ordered KeyLime pie for dessert but the waitress came back and said they were out of it but I brought you this Brownie as an apology for not having Keylime pie. I noticed she also brought it to another table. Made me wonder what was wrong with their meal. For the price you would think you would get better food and service.

    The restaurant is nice, however the value is not equal to the food. Some places compare lewnes to Ruth’s Chris. We found the food no well seasoned, overall lacking for the price. The ambiance was nice and the staff was amazing. The food could be seasoned way better.

    Outstanding filets and ribeye! Cooked perfectly and with a little char that was not too much, but just right. Sautéed mushrooms and sautéed spinach, mashed potatoes, all delicious and perfectly prepared as well. Onion bread should not be skipped! Thanks very much to our server as he delivered a very pleasant evening!

    It has been way to long since our last Lewnes Happy Meal and it was worth the wait! Started with a Tasty Lemon Drop hand crafted by Tyson along with some decadent crab balls and oysters. Outstanding filets, grilled sea bass and all the delicious sides round out the Lewnes Happy Meal feast. Brian was wonderful and patient with his table side manor and we appreciated a Lewnes history refresh from owner Sam. Still the best steaks (Fine dining Happy Meals) in the country. Prove us wrong!!! FYI: won best steak house in Annapolis yet again this year! Sincerely, Jeff, E, Jorge and Michelle

    If you're a true carnivore, this is the place to go! The meat is of the highest quality, short of being Kobe, and it is always cooked to absolute perfection. Service is attentive and professional, and the atmosphere is home-like. You definitely feel welcome here and everybody has fun.

    I had high expectations from my friends and family. I googled best steak houses in Maryland and Lewnes came up as number one. So me and my Girlfriend went there last night for our anniversary and we we’re very disappointed. I asked for my steak Medium well and it came out purple on the inside. Also gushing with blood as soon as I cut it open. My Gf said I should send it back to get cooked in the middle. But the outside of it was already burnt and I was afraid it will be shoe leather if I sent it back since it was already burnt. I asked my Gf that got the Chicken breast was it good and she said it was very dry. She was glad she had gotten mash potatoes to eat with the chicken as it made everything taste a tad better. But the mash potatoes were buttery soup. The service was good and I don’t mind the high prices for a 10\10 place but unfortunately I was very disappointed and unsatisfied.
