Amazing food the petite filet mignon was huge and the best I’ve ever had and I had crab with bearnaise sauce Oscar style. To die for. The most delicious high quality food.

My wife and I wanted to try a steak place in Annapolis, close to downtown so we could walk, and selected Lewnes' based on those criteria plus the other strong reviews. FABULOUS choice when in the Annapolis area. The staff was especially accommodating when at the last minute we ran into friends and extended the reservation from two to four with fairly short notice. Big kudos there for flexibility! Around the table we tried the prime rib, the regular-sized Ribeye, and (drum roll) the super-special pork chop. I forget all the details of how the pork is a special hybrid breed, though I believe there was an article in either the Wall St Journal or USA Today a few months back about this. But it was the most amazing pork chop ever-- and off the charts recommended if it is available when you dine. Otherwise outstanding across the board, and the fact that the Lewnes' family still owns and operates the restaurant just adds to the special ambiance. You feel connected in a way that you don't get at Ruths' Chris, Chart House, or another respectable steak establishment. 100% satisfaction across the board and we will 100% return during future visits to Annapolis. An easy 5-10 minute walk from the Annapolis downtown docks/marina over the Eastport bridge.

Our recent dinner at Lewnes' SteakHouse was nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment we walked in the front door, we knew we were in for a special experience. Our table was in a quiet corner of a small room. Our waiter was wonderful and helpful and provided over the top service. We all ordered Filet Mignon, each with a different cooking specification, and each one was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. Our two sides were asparagus and onion rings. The onion rings were amazing, definitely the best I've ever had and I'm old! At the end of our dinner, the waiter brought us a large brownie dessert as a surprise, to help us celebrate our special occasion. Each person on staff that we encountered contributed to our enjoyable evening. Thank you!

Lewne's lived up to expectations. I wanted a special event venue for my wife's birthday. Lewne's didn't disappoint. I asked for a champagne toast to star the evening and Cheryl greeted us with a chilled split. The wine list is extensive and our steaks were amazing. Service was wonderful -- between Cheryl and the serving staff, we wanted for nothing, yet I hardly noticed the wait staff. They were attentive without interrupting the flow of conversation and seemed to anticipate our needs. For dessert, Cheryl surprised us with a ice cream smothered brownie and birthday candle. The best part: the bill. Dinner for two, with cocktails, wine, and dessert for well under $200.

We had a lovely dinner celebrating my birthday. All of the food was excellent. As others have said there are not a ton of choices at Lewnes but the choices you have are all amazing. The clams casino in particular was the best I have ever had. The steaks were perfect and were well seasoned and served with just butter --- which was all they needed!
This was our first time dining at Lewnes but we are already looking forward to going back again.

We selected Lewnes' Steak house to celebrate the end of Plebe Summer for our 4/C Midshipman- we wanted to take her our for a great meal and Lewnes did not disappoint. The Service was very good, though sometimes our server did seem very busy, but still very good and attentive otherwise. The starters were great- excellent salads- and the steaks were perfect. Some of the best steaks we've ever had outside of Texas. We look forward to returning.

My husband and I came to celebrate my birthday. Ambiance was nice, food was delicious and service was good. We had oysters, crab balls and shrimp cocktail as appetizers. Oysters were wonderful, crab balls and shrimp were average. We both ordered filet mignon, and both were perfectly cooked and delicious! Our sides were Lyonnaise potatoes and mushrooms. The potatoes were not prepared in the traditional manner, and I would not order them again. They were okay, but nothing special. The sauteed mushrooms were delicious and were a good accompaniment to the steak. Overall, it was a nice dining experience. I would recommend Lewne's to family and friends.

Without a doubt one of the Best Porterhouse Steaks I have ever had and the sides were also delicious. Don't leave out the Keylime Pie afterwards if you dare to try and squeeze it in. Nick my waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list and his suggestions were right on. I can't wait to go back.

We had moved to Annapolis last Fall and finally had the opportunity to try out Lewnes' for my husband's birthday. The service was spectacular - you don't feel rushed or oversold, but instead you feel welcomed and valued. It's a simple menu that screams quality over quantity. The wine list was vast and our server was fantastic in helping us navigate the options. We'll be back again in the near future because their ribeye still has me salivating. :)

Also, it's nice to mention that just on the other side of the block is a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Lewnes' is a neighborhood gem and staple and can rival even the most popular of chain restaurants.

If you have a special occasion and want to celebrate it with a good steak Lewnes' is the place to go in Annapolis, MD. The cuts are superb, and the wine list and service are excellent. It's what you'd want an authentic steakhouse to be like - high backed booths for privacy with comfortable leather cushions and a quiet dining room with nice jazz playing quietly in the background.

This is an exquisite steakhouse with the finest food in the state of Maryland. The filet mignon promises to be the best cut of steak you will ever find for sure. Make sure you try the onion rings because they taste like they are straight from heaven. Everything here is fresh, made from scratch and comes to you in a perfect presentation. Their wine list is exquisite. Their staff is the most professional staff you will ever meet. I cannot say enough good things about Lewnes. This is a perfect date-night or special occasion spot for sure.

Booked reservation at the last minute because one of my sons is a steak connoisseur and the wait at Boathouse Grill was still going to be 45 minutes. They had to set up another room for our party of seven. But we had excellent steaks. Only complaint from my boys was that they pshould have ordered 25 oz ribeye rather than 16 oz. And the other son ate every bite of his filet mignon. Seafood not as good but very little was left over. Pricey but excellent steak and good service on short
