This is a steak restaurant that knows how to do steak and the usual fixings very well. Get a steak, some mushrooms, spinach, and potatoes and you cannot go wrong. Wine list is extensive, some very good choices at reasonable prices and some very expensive wines. You can find whatever will suit your budget and palate.

Another incredible dinner at Lewnes. The service was perfect! Our server did a wonderful job at helping our needs without being intrusive. The food was over the top as always. Filet mignon was cooked to exactly the proper temp, and the sides were delicious as well. I would highly recommend Lewnes to anyone that wants to dine at the perfect steakhouse.

My family (5) looked forward to dining at Lewnes since the reviews were very positive. Overall it was a very good meal with very good service. A couple of things were problematic. First there was a problem with parking on a Saturday evening, with no valet service. So as a result wound up parking a couple of blocks away and arrived a few minutes late. We were seated almost immediatly with our table in an alcove just off the bar and was a high traffic area between the bar and the restaurant, with an occasional high volume of noise from the bar area. Still for the most part the alcove was reasonably quiet and allowed for a normal conversation level. I cant emphasize enough how important the noise level is in restaurants today in that you often cant hear what your date is saying to you across the table. Lastly the whole menu is a la carte, so you should expect to add side dishes to the entrees. Two of the side dishes were 'potatoes lyonaise' and 'hashed brown potatoes' which were both badly overcooked and should have been sent back to the kitchen, but we didn't. Everything else was very good. The lamb chops were perfectly medium rare, the steaks, oysters, salads and seafood all excellent. The portions are generous and the drinks and wine list were outstanding! If you plan on going, ask for Matt who was a very attentive server, and did a wonderful job keeping our party satisfied. Thanks!

Great steak. Went for a business dinner with foreign contacts and they were duly impressed. Service was excellent, food was as well. I got a New York Strip and my associate got a filet. Excellent. Sides were very generous portions and also very good. This is a special occasion place -- a little pricey for everyday dining, but well worth it.

I've been going to Lewnes since they opened in the 1990's and it is consistently the best restaurant in Annapolis. I have no idea why anyone who go anywhere else for steak near Annapolis.

Def not worth the price/quality ratio. This is my third dinner here. One positive experience out of three isn't a good ratio. Salads were good but small for the price. Steaks are "okay". Two out of three side dishes were overcooked and I suspect reheated or microwaved based on their appearance and texture. Spinach was cooked well but bland. For this price point it should be an "experience" every time. It just isn't. I want my guests to be wow'ed when we walk out. It was also during a slow time of the evening so the kitchen was most likely not overburdened. Not sure who's watching over the line in the kitchen.

My wife and I came here for our anniversary and we're glad we did! First, it's deceptively spacious inside. From the outside it looks cramped, but there is plenty of room so you don't feel like you are on top of anyone. Second, the food was awesome. I had the strip steak and my wife had the petite filet. We shares the asparagus, mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach. Wow! The reviews we based our outing on were spot on. Would totally come back!

We're from Tampa and our son settled near Annapolis. The last two visits we took time to have dinner at Lewnes, it has rapidly become a "go-to" for our family dinner. The location, service and quality of food is outstanding!

We hosted another couple as well so there where 6 of us. Lewnes' made everything work smoothly. We had Erik as a waiter, who was a pure pro (he is the difference between dinner and a dinning experience) he was superb.

We'll be back!!

I am fortunate to have traveled the world. I can easily say this is one of the finest steakhouse in the country. Top on the eastern seaboard for sure. We lucky have it our backyard. Steaks melt like butter on your tongue. We save for special occasions but I want to go every night if I could. Well done friends at Lewnes Well Done.

Our expectations were high for Lewnes, but the evening never really felt special. For those of us that ordered steak, the food was excellent! The non-steak entrees were just average, and our server, while very knowledgeable, did not make an effort to make our experience memorable. The dining room also felt in need of a facelift. It felt a little tired in decor.
