top notch steak house

Pre wedding dinner with dudes. Steaks tender and done perfectly to order. Mushroom appetizer excellent. Wine selection good. Never happy with a la carte for veggies etc but quantities for a couple of us and were good. Pricey but very good.

I happened upon Lewnes while looking for highly ranked steakhouses (ahem: on Yelp, of course) in Annapolis or the Bowie area. We initally had reservations for four for a Friday evening for my birthday. We called to switch to Saturday evening for four and we were told that there was nothing available. Wow. So we told them we would add... More

First off, I just want to say happy birthday! I'm very pleased that you enjoyed your steaks, however, I'm very sorry that one had to be returned. Usually, we get it right the first time around, but I'm very happy you brought it up to us so we could get it replaced. Also, I'm so glad you saved room for... More

This was my wife's and my most enjoyable premium steak house experience ever, period, hands down. We enjoy Morton's or Ruth's C every now and then and they are always good, but, this is the next level. We look for a cozy atmosphere, outstanding food, and personal, friendly service - we experienced all three here. Lewens has a long history... More

Lewnes knows steaks. And lobster. And Greek salad. It's not the least expensive meal you'll ever have, but it will be worth every penny. The best beef, perfectly grilled, and served by an expert waitstaff. Take your family, or take your clients, when you want a special meal that will never disappoint.

My son surprised me with a wonderful lunch at Lewnes Steakhouse in Annapolis. The manager greeted me with a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate Mother's Day.

We have eaten here frequently on our trips to Annapolis. Until this trip I thought they had the best crab cake I had eaten as well as an excellent strip steak. But this trip there were several misses. The decor is pleasant with fairly comfortable seating. The servers wear white coats which contributes to the steak house atmosphere. And they... More

Disappointing should never be the word used to describe our steakhouse, and I'm so sorry you and your wife were let down. Especially after so many wonderful visits. If there's ever any dish that's not up to our usual standards, please send it right back to the kitchen. We only want you to leave 100% happy and watery spinach and... More

I’ve enjoyed a NY Strip in NY, and a KC Strip in KC, but Lewnes served the finest Filet Mignon to ever cross my lips. It took some coaxing from trusted friends to try a steakhouse amongst a sea of fresh crab joints in Maryland, but I thanked these people profusely the next day for their recommendations.
