Lewnes Steakhouse is the best steak in the US (that I have had). They cook the steak perfectly and the sides and wine selection are outstanding. The service is second to none. The decor is 'classic' 1970's; but clean. It is a little in the pricey side, but I would much rather eat here once than go to a less... More

Not just a steak house, but great seafood as well. Service is impeccable, anything you ask for will be delivered. I like my gin martinis with a "mess of olives" not just one or two, Eric our server brought mine with 8 olives on two skewers... 5 extra kudos!! Of course red meat is the star here and I usually...

So glad you've enjoyed our place. I love reading reviews about the prime rib, as it's one of my favorites as well. I do hope you make it to dessert one day -- we have an excellent pecan pie that I'd love for you to try. Hope to see you around soon, and thank you for leaving us this. Sincerely,... More

As with any city, you have a bunch of choices for a steak dinner out. As you know....you do pay for the experience...$50+ per person on average. If you are spending the money in Annapolis, Lewnes is the place to go. I have been to the "other" well known steak house where the food is good....but service has really lapsed.... More

Wow, just wow! Last night was our last opportunity for dinner in Annapolis. We were celebrating our 7th anniversary and after several days of wonderful seafood were ready for some red meat. First off, we were recommended to ask to be seated with Patty, which was a great decision. Patty took excellent care of us and provided some fabulous recommendations.... More

A couple of years ago I went here for my wedding anniversary and was blown away. The steak (I had ribeye) was the best steak I've ever had for sure. Other stuff is also solid. Ambiance is lovely, it's in an old house and has a really nice homey feeling. It is not cheap. The wine list in particular is... More

My wife and I hosted good friends at whose home we were guests in Annapolis at Lewnes Steak House in Easton, a few blocks from their home.

Any time my family is celebrating a special occasion, we always go to Lewnes. It is locally owned with a long history of serving excellent food. their wine list is extensive. We have stopped ordering onion rings anywhere else, because we always found ourselves comparing them to Lewnes. Their Greek salad is delicious and can be shared. The steaks are... More

Lewnes is a top shelf steakhouse in beautiful Annapolis MD. The 2500 bottle wine cellar is as extensive as the numbers suggest. The menu is alla cart. The sides are large enough for two. We both had the petite filet mignon. The steak was among the best I have ever had. The service is excellent. It is a pricey, but... More
