We have never been to Lewnes but heard about it from friends that live in Eastport. We had reservations for 8:45 but were not seated immediately and we were starving. However we got a booth all the way in the back which we loved.
The food was great but they ran out of backed potatoes but the mashed potatoes were very good.
We go the filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection. The wedge salad was delicious as well.
The only concern was the service, perhaps because we were seated late and were in the back but we felt forgotten. We got bread without butter and neither of us got our drinks refilled so we opted just to finish up.
With their reputation, I would have thought service would be much better!

Simple steakhouse menu but everything is done to perfection. The waitstaff is polished but also warm and kind. We got three different cuts of steak, and none of us went wrong with our choices. A lovely meal.

Food and atmosphere was fantastic. I believe Elise (sorry on spelling) was our server and she made the experience even more special for us. She displayed a great knowledge of the menu and was friendly with us the entire night. I think we stayed almost 3 hours! Will be returning ASAP.

We've lived in the Annapolis area for more than 10 years and have never tried Lewnes' until last night. It was really interesting to see how the restaurant is split between multiple rooms instead of a traditional restaurant where most is viewable and it seems . like they must have multiple kitchens to serve the two floors. The Greek Salad was excellent and so was the bread. The steak was cooked perfectly and was fantastic; the thought of asking for any sort of condiment didn't even enter my mind. The sides were good, but not great; however, they are very reasonably priced. If they were more expensive then I would have been disappointed. Overall, I think their entrees are reasonably priced and better than other top quality steak houses like Ruth Chris right down the road. My only constructive criticism is to have more wine options. I think there were only a handful that you could order by the glass and not everyone in Annapolis is a wino. We will return, but I would be more inclined to return sooner if I knew that a third of my bill was not the cost of a bottle a wine. My personal opinion,I know some will disagree or state I have a choice not to drink, too, but all I am saying is to provide more options for those who don't mind having a lesser quality wine with their steak. I don't think it will hurt anything. Oh, and their Brownie Sunday was amazing!

Our place to go for special occasions... upscale, great service, classy atmosphere. The food is always good and abundant. Highly recommended. Parking in Eastport is the only challenge, but we usually find a place within a few blocks.

A steakhouse that’s been in business since 1921 knows it’s stuff. Dependable for great tasting meats, and traditional sides such as mushrooms, creamed spinach etc. You can count on Lewnes for a meal that you don’t need to take a chance on. Downside to our meal was we were seated next to a very noisy large party (not entirely restaurants fault) but just highlighted that ambience could have been better.

We had a great dinner at Lewnes' steakhouse. The broiled crab balls and Oysters Rockefeller were both outstanding. We both had the filet's and they were generous portions that were cooked perfectly. The waitress was great. Our table was exactly what we had requested. Looking forward to returning the next time we are in Annapolis.

First time diners. The service was very attentive and not intrusive. Oysters (Rockefeller) and clams (Casino) were delicious. All of the side-dishes were well prepared and easily served four: mashed potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, creamed spinach and onion rings (the one we would not order again). We had two petite filets that got rave reviews, one strip steak, also well received. I had the porterhouse and was disappointed. It had multiple lines of tendons and gristle that were impossible to separate from the meat with the knife provided. Also, and this is on me for not sending it back to the kitchen, what was supposed to be medium rare was quite rare. When we go back, and we will, I will opt for a filet or strip steak and stay away from bone-in cuts.

The food was good and my husband loved his rib eye. Very tender and flavorful. The clams casino was yummy and the wedge of iceberg lettuce with blue cheese was delicious. I did have to send my veal chop back as it wasn't so much medium as really rare which is a bit too much for me. They responded very well and brought us some extra dishes we didn't really need. Our waiter was terrific and we enjoyed our time there.

Lewnes' Steakhouse has the best steaks in the Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia area. I highly recommend this steakhouse. The sides and desserts are excellent. Even the half-size portions of the sides are large and you can share. If you are deciding among steakhouses, definitely go to Lewnes. The atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. Our service was excellent, and our waitress did not have to be reminded of anything. She listened and took good care of us. I was considering another highly rated steakhouse, which is inconsistent, and I am so glad that I switched our reservation for four to Lewnes.
