Our service was excellent and our server was knowledgeable, friendly and made our experience very enjoyable. We will return again. Everything that we selected from the Oysters to the Steak were prepared to perfection. The reviews that I read prior to making Lewnes Steakhouse my designated selection were right on point.

A neighborhood steak house as opposed to a national chain.
Annapolis offers great food from the sea.
Nothing beats a well prepared beef meal here. Giddy up

I am dairy free and meat free and the server was very knowledgeable on what I could have and how everything was cooked; she even knew of my restrictions before I started to order. The salmon was the best I have had in a very long time. My husbands steak was huge and was cooked perfectly and seasoned very well. It was worth the 1.5 hour drive to get there and will be back again.

Beautiful restaurant, the food was spectacular and the service impeccable. The warm bread was outstanding and the mixed drinks were the best. The food could have been served hotter but delicious none the less.

For the most point everything was superb. We were a little dissatisfied with out waiter thought. Don’t get me wrong, he was prompt with his service but extremely casual. I feel like for the amount of money being spent was should feel “special” and not like we’re being served at McDonalds. Some examples of what I mean are: he brings me a bear, sits it on the table and slides it to me without once looking at me or slowing down at the table. He also puts his arm on the back of the bench and leans on it as he’s speaking to us. This happened more then once during our dining experience. I’ve been to many other fine dining establishments and the waiter is always very formal.

Was not impressed with the food the price we paid. I ordered lobster. The server made it seem as if I was getting a lobster tail and there were different sizes. I picked the smallest. When my food came out it was an ENTIRE lobster. I was literally in shock as were the other diners around us. When we got our bill I found out the lobster alone was $93!!! Never would I ever pay that for anything alone. I was not happy to say the least. I did not complain because I did not want to make a scene in such a quiet restaurant but I feel like something of that price should be told beforehand. Also, the lobster was very tough and completely flavorless. My husband said his steak was good so that was the only plus side. Will not be returning.

Lewnes is our favorite special occasion restaurant and it did not disappoint! My husband and I brought our 14 year old son with us who has a severe nut allergy. They were very understanding and worked to accommodate us. One of the owners came over to us and spoke to what he could have. The food was delicious as always and the atmosphere very relaxing. Our server Matt was great as well. Highly recommend!

Great food. Service was a little slow, but it was Valentine’s Day. Will definitely go back on a slower night. Still, the food is outstanding and I like the “smaller”, quieter atmosphere versus other larger places.

We love to go to Lewnes. The steaks are so amazing that I have never had a chance to try some of the other dishes. The Greek salad is one of my favorite sides but the tomato salad is also amazing As are the vegetables. The servers are always very polite. I don’t think it’s possible to be disappointed with Lewnes.

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.

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.
