We went to Lewnes for Valentine's day. Even though it is not one of the most romantic spots in town, the food was amazing. We were seated in the middle of the room, which didn't allow for much privacy, but when my husband requested a booth, they were extremely accommodating and were more than... read more

Had dinner reservations for two at 7:30pm. We arrived on time and were promptly greeted politely and shown to our table. My date wanted to try a Cabernet and our waitress, after assessing my date's taste preferences suggested Oberon Cabernet. We place our dinner order, Clams Casino, Petite Fillet, New York Strip, Asparagus and Spinach ala George and of course... More

Had surprise birthday party here. Separate room upstairs was perfect for the number of attendees. Great walk around hors d'oeurvre trays (bacon wrapped scallops were outstanding), very attentive wait staff, excellent meal with varied menu for those with dietary concerns. The building has a charm indicative of Annapolis.

Dory, I cannot apologize enough that you were embarrassed bringing your national manager here for a business dinner. We strive to offer nothing but prompt and friendly service, so I cannot imagine what happened. If you would reach out to me at the restaurant, I would be more than happy to make this right.

We were a party of 4 on Saturday evening. There were many empty tables yet no one seemed to know where our waiter was. An employee from a different section took our cocktail order. My prime rib was tasteless and extremely fatty. My husband's porterhouse steak was difficult to cut do to all the fat. The couple with us were... More

If there's any disappointment in your meal, please let us know, and we'd be more than happy to remake it in-house. Thank you for this feedback, and we hope you'll give us another... More

I had crab cakes that were delicious, and my friends raved about their steaks! The private rooms upstairs are particularly great for parties of varied size.

Lewnes has been in Annapolis for many years and is right up the street from Ruth's Chris. It more than holds its own against the competition. Great steaks, sides, wine list, etc. Ask for a table in the back near the wine cellar.

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
