Service was excellent, food was okay - three of us had the prime rib special - flavorful, but very fatty. The other two had a filet and a NY Strip steak, both were excellent. Sides were plentiful, our service person was fantastic.

Adam our server was excellent with his recommendations for our party of 6 (this was our first time at Lewnes). We got a wonderful tour of the wine cellar. The food was excellent. Thank you. When I called to ask some questions about the reservation the gentleman who answered the phone was rather curt and the hostess when we arrived was similarly curt. Thus the reason for four versus five stars.

The staff and waitress were courteous and attentive. Portions were generous but quality and presentation was not as one would expect for the price. Salads were overly smothered in dressing and bake potato was on the dry side. Seating was comfortable and noise level was low to have quite conversation

Lewnes has been my husband’s favorite steakhouse for many years. We come each year for his birthday and other occasions. On this particular occasion we celebrated his 50th birthday. Never a disappointment from the hostess to the server, the cook, and everyone in between exceptional quality and service is always delivered!

Very good place for steak; however, the salmon is from a farm, which was a bit disappointing. For such an established restaurant, one would have thought the salmon would be wild from the New England coast, not farm raised. Other than that, very nice establishment and sophisticated atmosphere.

The food was delicious and so were the Martinis!! The service was outstanding! The only bad thing is the restaurant is a bit dated. It could use a makeover! It was still a very comfortable environment and I would definitely go back and I highly recommend!

One of my favorite spots in all of Maryland for not only the best meal but service and atmosphere.
A must it you like a perfect steak, especially the bone-in ribeye.
I travel a lot and still put Lewnes up at the top.
Enjoy

It blew the head of my cock off. Great apps, great wine list (much better than a typical Morton's, Ruth's, Palm, etc), steak was great, sides were great. Did not have dessert, because i'm afraid that would have burnt my balls off. Truly a great experience. Will be back soon

Amazing steaks, sides, and drinks. The best steakhouse in Annapolis. You can never go wrong with the Filet. It’s the size of your fist! Buttery goodness, cooked to perfection. I love this place. Highly recommended for special occasions.

Lovely old school steak house. My wife had the peitite filet mignon and I had the NY Strip steak. I travel a great deal and this was one of the best steaks I've had in a long time and my wife felt the same.

Overall, Lewnes’ is always a safe bet for a wonderful meal in Annapolis. Food was excellent, but this time the service left a little to be desired. Our waiter seemed to be in a big hurry and didn’t really listen to questions and particulars about our orders. Even cut me off one time when I asked him a question by turning away dismissively! Never cracked a smile, wasn’t exactly warm - didn’t affect his tip as the busboys and other personnel were very attentive. But that didn’t exactly make up for his behavior. The restaurant was busy that night, but still everyone at the table remarked on his manner.

Best restaurant in Annapolis to enjoy a meal with that special bottle of wine. Service is top-notch. Server knowledgeable and provided timely and important advice regarding food choices. Good for virtually any occasion. Noise level is minimal, allowing great conversation.

The ambiance was beautiful. I have never been but my husband has and Has only said positive things . I ordered a filet medium well... which I know is not how the majority eat their steak, however it is how I enjoy mine. It came out medium rare but closer to rare and was also a tad cold to the touch so I kindly asked the waitress it take it back. She said no problem . She brought it out and it must’ve been placed in the broiler because it was charred on the outside but still completely rare on the inside. For $44 It would’ve been nice to have been prepared a new filet.

We always have great service and food is always excellent when we are there. Our family is all in agreement that the steaks are the best but we like it better without all the butter. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants.
