I would have liked more vegetable choices like a squash and broccoli medley and I would have appreciated some crumb service. Otherwise fantastic!

Oysters Rockefeller was excellent. Steak and shrimp was good. However, I felt like the flavor was just ok for the price of the food. I would still recommend this place.

The food was absolutely amazing. I came here for a date night since both me and my boyfriend would be going out of town and will not see each other for 2 weeks. So glad I came here we will definitely be going again.

First time visitors to Lewnes' in celebration of our 45th anniversary. Everything was perfect from the moment we entered the restaurant until we walked out the door. We were greeted warmly, seated promptly, and met our waiter, Mack, soon there after. He was informative about the menu and promised not to oversell us on food. The Shrimp and Crab Bisque was rich and delicious. My Wedge Salad was so very crisp and fresh and the toppings were delicious. My husband had the Prime Rib and I had the Filet Mignon. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious and so big that we took enough home to have dinner the next night. The only negative thing I can say is that there is no parking or valet parking. We had to park in a public lot down the street, however, that is not enough to damper my review. I can't wait to go back!

Our first visit ever. Overall a good experience with some glitches.

Glitches: we were placed as the only couple across from a group of 15 men having batchelor’s party night dinner? It was quite noisy, and we would have preferred seating in another room with more patrons.

The asparagus was bland. Needs some serious help, perhaps roasting in seasoned olive oil. Just so not worth the money

However, we enjoyed the rest of the meal. Great Ribeye, super filet, tasty onion rings, and a nice (although again needs more robust seasoning) tomato salad. As a plu, the coffee was excellent. Nice ambiance, though the rest room was not as pristine as one might expect.

As with most steakhouse, pricey, and for a great many of us, best saved for special occasions.

This was my first time at this restaurant. The exterior does not reflect what is inside. As soon as you walk in you are welcomed and are escorted to your table. The menu is superb and is well explained by the waiter. The food is plentiful and well cooked. I was surprised by the dessert that we were given at the end of the meal. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Lewnes is classic style steakhouse. It was exactly what my family was looking for. The men in my family were visiting Annapolis on a weekend retreat and for the last night we wanted to have high quality steaks and some delicious sides. We were not disappointed. The ribeye was 12-14 oz and cooked to perfection. This isn't a steakhouse that relies on a bunch of seasoning and fluff. Its all about the quality of meat and the cut I received was perfect. At Medium, I got a nice marble and easily cut. The sides were great too. It was 5 of us, so the waitress suggested we just share 4 sides. They are big enough to split two ways. So we had the cream of spinach, asparagus, and two orders of mashed potato. It was all very good, but the spinach was the best of the 3. They found out we were celebrating our family and treated us all to desert! Not one desert to share... we got 5 deserts! That was EXTREMELY generous of them and we really enjoyed our warm chocolate brownies. I will definitely be recommending this restaurant to anyone I know visiting Annapolis. A+ service. A+ steaks.

Had dinner with my sister and her husband. I had petite filet mignon, they had shrimp. Both dishes were very good. Steak was very tender, no gristle or excess fat, and done just right. Restaurant is pricey (everything is a la carte) but not excessively so. Ambiance was ideal: large, leather covered booths, plenty of space, etc.

The service/food tonight was horrendous. We had an 8:15 dinner reservation, we were seated promptly at 8:20, the hostess brought us waters and it was all downhill from there. No one took our dinner order until 8:55pm. It seemed as if our waiter was actively avoiding our table. Took forever to get drink refills, the waiter literally was throwing plates down on the table when our entrees and apps arrived and flagging him down to get the check was another epic ordeal. Now all of this could have been overlooked if the food had been spectacular, but the meal was a 1/5. I ordered a steak medium that came out burnt and medium well throughout. There was the slightest hint of pink at the very center of the cut but the sirloin was ultimately tough and chewy, and i would have sent it back, but at that point we were so disappointed with the overall experience we just wanted to get our check and leave. Unacceptable when a cut of meat here costs $45-$50. Will not return.

This was our very first experience with your establishment. I had always heard great things from our friends, and we were not disappointed at all. The management and all those who we met were exceptionally friendly and personable.
However, our waitress left a great deal to be desired. She barely interacted with us, and just went through the motions of getting the job done. This was our 44th wedding anniversary and I wanted to make it special for my wife and myself. However, even if this was a regular visit, I would have expected much more from our server. Very disappointed.
But, the food, ambiance, and the rest of the staff are exceptional.

It was fantastic! We usually go to Ruth's Chris. This was our first time dining at Lewnes. I have Celiac disease so had some questions with the menu. All questions were answered and they went out of their way to make sure I was good. The waitress even brought out a Gluten Free roll for me. The food was prepared perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Best steak house in the Annapolis area. Better then Peter Luger's in NY. Elyse, our server, was excellent. Food was prepared as we requested. The drinks were great. Parking can be a problem especially on weekends due to the number of boaters out on the water. If staying at a hotel, take Uber.
