Wedding anniversary! This is a great date night to dress up and spoil your loved one. Steak was amazing and cooked perfectly, my wife got the crab cakes and loved them. Wine list is extensive and so many options so look up some wines before and expect to double your bill just on a bottle of wine, but so delicious and worth it. They do sell some wines by the glass and have a full bar and beer).

Lewnes' is consistently a fine dining experience. From the welcome from the maitre'd, to the bartender pouring the perfect drink, to the best prime beef in Maryland, to the waiter serving dessert, the meal is reliably fantastic, every time.

Awesome experience at Lewnes Steakhouse. Adam is a fabulous waiter, a true professional. The steaks are the best in Annapolis, and the sides are almost as good as the meat. And the wine list is legendary.

But...I would recommend with some reservations, and not for a table. We have been patrons of Lewnes' for several years now, and it was always our "go to" Steakhouse for a nice night out, an occasion, etc. However, the last two times we have been there, the steaks we used to love have somehow not had the same crust, and subsequently had much less flavor than previous meals. Additionally, our sides were lukewarm on both visits. We love the ambiance, but really miss the crust on the medium rare tenderloin steaks we loved and had come to expect. The service remains world-class. Sorry, but the last two visits have been disappointing.

Great steakhouse! We’ll probably never go to Ruth’s Chris again knowing how much better Lewnes’ is, and we’ve been to several Ruth’s, the Palm, etc. Definitely worth the drive to Annapolis, and the water and a marina are just across the street when you’re ready to start walking off that special meal.

The food was great, the service was sup-par. In particular it was disconcerting to find that servers at a Wine Spectator Award winning restaurant don't know how to properly decant a bottle of wine.

Superb service and beautiful cuts. Wine, beer and cocktails are absurdly overpriced. Park diagonally across in lot. Lewnes is next door to Ruth’s Chris which has LOTS of parking and has comparable menu. I recommend the cowboy ribeye (bone in).

I have been to Lewnes many of times but this was the worst service I have received there. The waiter was border line rude and even my friend who had never been there before commented “That waiter doesn’t like you.” I will come back but I am not going to have that waiter again.

Our first impression was the friendliness of the waiter. Chris did not make us feel rushed and was helpful with all of our questions & selections. His advise on the menu was spot-on. He was sensational. Our 2nd impression of Lewnes was the cuisine. Every bite of every course was completely delicious. Our steaks were cooked exactly as ordered. My steak was little thicker than my Mom's. But both had achieved the same perfect hue of pink that we had requested. This is rarely seen at other restaurants. Ever. The 3rd aspect of our experience was the warm friendliness of a family run restaurant. One of the owners, Mac Lewnes, made us feel like we were an important part of his fine establishment. My Mom and I truly appreciated his hospitality and graciousness. We will definitely be returning for more memorable meals with friends and family.
