We went for Father’s day dinner and it was superb. The food was amazing and the service was great as well. The booths make you feel as if you are in your own private dining room rather than a crowded restaurant. Highly recommend!

Our steak was under cooked per the requested temperature. While our side orders sat and got cold we waited for our steak and when it returned it was over done. We pointed out to the waiter. Steak was dry, sautéed spinach tasted like a plate of garlic and baked potato under cooked.

Lewnes' Steak House is a guaranteed great meal for special occasions. Sean and all the other servers, we have had over the years are friendly and accommodating. I like family restaurants, and they care about their customers.

We went here for our son's birthday. This was our first visit. Steak was cooked to perfection. The sides of mushrooms and potatoes - outstanding. The brownie dessert was excellent. Our server, Patti, was the best. The whole group liked her. She was funny, and just the right amount of attention - not overboard but was there when appropriate. It is expensive, but we knew that ahead of time. We will be back.

This was one of my many visits to Lewnes. We drive down from New York to play golf and this is a must stop every time. I have never been disappointed by the food or the staff. Looking forward to my next visit.

Consistently one of the best steaks my wife and I have had ANYWHERE. The wine list is superb and the service is equal. And for what you get the prices are reasonable. You will not be disappointed.

Our reservation was for 7 and although we were seated promptly and attended to by our waiter, we did not receive our entrees till 8:30. We were told that the chef was backed up twice by both the waiter and the manager. They did compensate us with complimentary glasses of wine which was nice but we were still hungry and had no food. For the amount of money we spent, I did not think it was worth it. Our waiter was excellent and it was obvious it was not his fault for the delay. Overall, not the best experience.

Lewnes has become my favorite restaurant and that is saying a lot. One of the BEST true Steakhouses in the country...eclipsing such standouts as John Howie in Seattle, Manny's in Minneapolis and Del Frisco's Double Eagle in Vegas. The ambiance of an intimate, quiet dining in an old world setting. The consummate host, Sam Lewnes makes every diner feel welcomed and special. The cuts of meat are superior and are perfectly prepared. The sides are well done and compliment the entrees perfectly. And the wines...aah the wines...variety and great vintages to die for. Many still don't know about this place...and maybe that is a good thing? But you don't know what you are missing by not trying this old family gem.
HIGHLY recommended!!

I recently celebrated my wedding anniversary here with a nice and quiet dinner. We had an early spot. Service and the server were good. Food was also good, too good that we saved half of it for dinner the next day. The onion bread was also good. As for our surprise we got a hot brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and topped with lots of whipped cream. It was good. Also the price is really good and this include 2 cocktail drinks, nothing compared to the restaurant next door, you know which one it is, yes I will come back again.

The only part that I did not like was the weird smell when you enter the restaurant right in front of the bar and the no easy to find parking spot, if there were a "valet" parking then it was not in service when I arrived or not offered.

Have been here several times before and was always excellent. Not so good this time. One guest asked for a medium steak and it was so rare he had to send it back. One guest had rib eye that contained so much fat that it was not enjoyable. Will think twice before going back to such a pricey place w soso food

Love the booths that give diners a bit more privacy! Food was excellent. On par with the competition down the street but the booths clinch it for me. One can have a conversation and not worry about eves dropping or disturbing others.

First of all the service is outstanding, very attentive but not annoying so. Food & wine are of a superior level. Price reflects the quality of food. Although it is a steak house there were plenty of other options. Our party of four were seated upstairs in a beautiful booth designed for privacy. I'd go again in a heart beat.

Went to Lewnes last weekend for our 22nd Wedding Anniversary. Everything was wonderful - as it always is. My husband got the Shrimp Cocktail and Filet - and I had their out of this world Greek Salad and Ribeye. We shared the buttery mashed potatoes and sauteed mushrooms. Loved the Complimentary Brownie Sundae. Our waitress, Cheryl, was perfect - as always. She isn't overbearing - just always around if we need her. This by far is my favorite restaurant in Annapolis - and we look forward to any date night that we can find to get there.
