Service was attentive without being annoying. I always appreciate that. Elaine took good care of us and it was a pleasure dealing with her.

My wife had the ribeye and I had the petite filet. Steaks were cooked to perfection and we had two sides to split. Good thing because there were huge. Creamed spinach and lyonnaise potatoes which we had never heard of but they were terrific.

Overall a wonderful experience here. Highly recommended.

Fine dining at its best. Food was fantastic, steak was cooked perfectly as well as the sides. The perfect dessert to finish the entire experience.

The environment was very nice, it was slowly paced, but not too slow. Very nice date night.

From the starters (Oysters Rockefeller, Crab Soup, Greek Salad) through the amazing 40 oz. tomahawk cut Ribeye (carved tableside) the meal, service, etc. was amazing!
Hats off to the Lewnes Team!

The food was amazing, as always. The service was also good. BUT— IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC, you had TOO MANY UNMASKED RESTAURANT GUESTS IN EVERY BOOTH, BREATHING THE SAME AIR, IN THE SAME AREA. It was UNSAFE. I don’t know if you were trying to maintain empty seats upstairs in order to satisfy the 50% capacity limitations imposed for public health reasons by Anne Arundel County. But YOU FAILED to protect your customers, as envisioned by that public health order. You had WAY TOO MANY UNMASKED PEOPLE PACKED INTO THE DOWNSTAIRS AREA. It was dangerous.

The service was lacking; we waited a few minutes at the host station while two employees chatted about some other reservations. The menus do not have cocktails or a liquor list. I ordered a whiskey only to find out minutes later they had run out of it. Our sides lacked flavor; for example the asparagus is simply steamed. The petit filet was very tender and perfectly cooked but my strip was tough and flavorless. For $200 I expected a higher end experience and certainly a meal of a higher caliber than I can cook at home. We won’t be coming back.

We came here for the night before our wedding. Due to Covid, we didn’t want to do a full rehearsal dinner. Instead we opted for a dinner with our two close friends. We had such a good dinner, and the service was awesome. It’s definitely expensive, but it was okay, because it was a special occasion. We will definitely keep Lewnes’ in mind for other special occasions.

Chose Lewne's for our anniversary, and it was wonderful. Had a reservation and were seated right away. Their wine is a bit over priced, but they provide a wide selection. They also offer half bottles which is nice. I chose Honig Cab Sauv. We had oysters and shrimp as appetizers and enjoyed both. Our choice of entree's were filet for my husband, and rib eye for myself, both Oscar style which consists of crab and a delicious bearnaise sauce. Amazing! Steaks were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Sauteed mushrooms and two potatoes, Lyonnaise and mashed, completed our meal. We had enough leftovers to have a second dinner at home the next night. We would both highly recommend Lewne's.

Thank you Lewnes’ SteakHouse for making the birthday dinner memorable. Long after dinner was finished, sitting there talking, laughing and enjoying the sounds of big band music was romantically satisfying. We enjoyed EVERYTHING!!! Highly Recommended.

Arguably the best steakhouse on the East Coast; quality of the beef is exceptional and always prepared as ordered. They get the temperature just right. The service is impeccable and the ambiance is what you want from a steakhouse. The wine list is very strong too. We enjoy Lewnes' for special occasions, but it is also a great meal on any occasion.
