Disappointed! We have visited Lewnes many times before and had a wonderful experience. This past Friday was a different story. The service was fine but the food was VERY inconsistent. Some good some bad. But all of the food seemed like it was thrown onto the plate. It really seemed as if NOBODY cared about the food. I think that is the point of being in the food business. I fully understand how busy things have been since the recovery but it was a sad visit to one of our local favs. I hope they recover!!

We've been going to Lewnes for 20 years and have never had a bad meal. Last night was excellent as usual. The service is outstanding, the steaks are the best in the U.S. and the wine list is great. Highly recommend foregoing the big chain steak house and eating at the Lewnes.

For 25 years this was 5 star. Always get the NY strip this time ordered rib eye medium. Came out rare. Sent back waited close to 10 minutes came back as requested with alot of additional butter.
Waiter not attentive other than filling water glass. Did not want to convese other than his robotic speel of specials.
Will go back because of past history.

We had a room wonderful evening. We arrived a little early and the host seated us expeditiously. The staff were friendly and accommodating, and the food was delicious. Portions were larger as we expect to see in many restaurants these days, but that meant plenty to take home for the next day’s breakfast or lunch.

Best steak house not only in Annapolis but maybe in DC-Annapolis area. We dine here often and always celebrate my birthday there as we did this time. Always a fabulous evening. Love that it is relatively quiet.

My wife and I celebrated our 27th anniversary at Lewnes Steak house. From the time we entered until the time we left, we felt very pampered and well attended. We enjoyed our celebratory Toast, the appetizers were prepared very nicely. The entrees were to die for, along with the veggies. We were treated to an acknowledgement of the occasion. Our "Day" could not have been any better!

Our first time here and it was a terrific evening. We did have a pretty early dinner, so it wasn't very busy, but that was best for us since we have 3 young toddlers. Our waitress was very accommodating (and patient) with the kids. And of course, the food was fantastic. An overall very pleasant dining experience.

Dinner was great and so was the wine. Enjoyed taking out of town family here as it's one of our favorite spots. Filet is fantastic and everyone's steak was cooked precisely as ordered.

The quality of food and presentation are only surpassed by the excellent customer service! Josh was very accommodating when the size of our party grew due to last-minute out of town guests. Cheryl gave us insight into the specials, creative additions, and wine recommendations as she graciously served us, making as feel like welcome family! The creamed spinach and shrimp were both amazing. They provided every attention to detail and remembered that we were celebrating a birthday and surprised us with a special dessert. It is so great to see such a fine family establishment still serving high-quality food in an elegant setting. We look forward to visiting again soon!

Eating out is, different, now that the pandemic restrictions are over. We went on a Wednesday night and the crowds out around town and at restaurants looking like a Boat Show Saturday. Lewnes was backed up due to staffing issues but the ones that were there bent over backwards to make up for it. The quality didn't slip, the food came out a little slowly, there were some things that we out of stock (baked potatoes! Really?) but all in all it was still a good night and a great meal.

From start to finish was AMAZING. Tyson made the best Mojito’s I have ever had. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door. The food was beyond terrific. I got the 3 1/2 lb lobster and my fiancé got the 28oz Porterhouse steak cook to perfection. I would highly recommend Lewnes Steakhouse. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you for a great Date Night.

Server was in such a rush, though we were not slow at making any decisions. Described an appetizer as bacon on a plate. Removed our bread and butter without asking. Brought an ordered dirty martini with no dirty at all and asked for the needed olive juice, for which we had an up-charge!! We were unimpressed with the service. The food was good.

We've made it a habit to celebrate special occasions at Lewnes due to the consistent quality of food prep & great svc provided by the professional waitstaff....everyone in our Father's Day party was in agreement this year that the entrees were outstanding (as usual) but also that the numerous side dishes ordered were similarly outstanding!
Our only regret is that everything was sooo good that there were scant pickings left to take home to our doggie!
