Our family went out for a good steak the night before Induction Day 2015 at the Naval Academy. So we had a Plebe in the making with us. We chose Lewnes for her last meal before the big day. It was our first time there and went pretty early 530pm. The restaurant a darker lit interior in somewhat of an... More

Thank you for your detailed and thoughtful review. I will definitely take your feedback about the cocktails back to the team. Also, I do apologize that the oil-to-steak ratio wasn't ideal. Here at Lewnes', we like to include all of the steak juices on our plates for maximum flavor, but I understand that isn't always to everyone's liking. I hope... More

The restaurant is over the bridge from the main part of town, but an easy walk in good weather. The service was attentive and the decor is pleasing. Our veal chops were okay and acceptable, but not outstanding. With so many restaurants in the Annapolis area, we certainly would like to try other places on our next visit.

Thanks for the feedback! If you didn't love the veal, I recommend trying one of our steaks -- they're our most popular offering! Next time you visit to the Annapolis area, I'd love to have you back to deliver an exceptional experience. Best, Sam Lewnes More

Instead of choosing the best hotel and walking to a good restaurant, do the reverse: make a reservation at the best restaurant - Lewnes - and stay nearby. Reasons for dining here: 1. Service: Patti was a wonderful and personable server, again. 2. Atmosphere: Ask for the wine cellar room, if available. Charming view of an impressive collection. Soft jazz... More

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.

There's nothing quite like sealing the deal with a perfect steak. Nice choice. I'm really happy you loved the wine selection, too. I do hope the wedding is beautiful, and the whole team and I wish you happiness and send along our congratulations! Best wishes, Sam Lewnes More

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.

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

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.
