My family and I went there to celebrate my aunt's birthday. Some of my family have been there before but it was my 1st time. The food and service was fabulous! I enjoyed my crab cakes and the family style side dishes, especially the melt in your mouth onion rings, but that Lobster and Crab(creamed base) soup was the star... More

My family and I have been going here for the last 10 years ever since our real estate agent gave us a gift certificate for here. The food has always been outstanding. For appetizers we have gotten the oysters on the half shell and the shrimp cocktail both are excellent. Sometimes we will get a salad instead of an appetizer... More

We have come to Lewnws's several times a year for thirty-plus years. We do not eat red meat all that often, which is the main reason we do not come more frequently. The other is the quite high prices, especially for the wines. We have always had good service; timely, attentive and not obtrusive, even during the Christmas office-night-out season... More

This cozy steakhouse is a classic through and through from the white-coated servers, to the simple, beef-focused menu to the extensive and interesting wine list. I do everything I can to avoid "chain" steakhouses and this one did not disappoint. The seafood bisque starter was fantastic. My veal chop was cooked to my exact liking and had a fantastic taste...

Whether you are visiting Annapolis by boat or by car, Lewnes is the choice for great steaks. It is close enough to the harbor to walk and there is no problem parking if coming by car. Four of us had a business dinner on a recent Monday evening. Three of us ordered the aged ribeye and the fourth had prime... More

It was wonderful having the four of you in for your Monday business dinner. I'm thrilled to hear all of the steaks were to your liking, as well as the sides and appetizers. I'm also very happy you tried out our wine list and gin maritins. They really start the meal off right. Thank you so much for choosing us... More

This is Annapolis and perhaps the mid-Atlantic's best steak and chop house. Quality beef, great lamb, a good selection of seafood and all quality ingredients. Several visits over 20 years and never a disappointment.

Had dinner for 8 on a Monday night, initial service/drinks/appetizers went very well. Of the three prime rib meals, two had to be sent back for being cold and the other was undercooked and barely warm. The filets were marginal, undercooked and tough. The potatoes were cold, as were the vegetable side dishes. The spinach was chopped so small that... More

I am so sorry you had to go through this at our place. It really pains me to hear your steaks weren't cooked to your liking and that your waiter never asked about desserts, as we always try to have the most attentive staff and perfectly cooked dishes.

Preferred giving a non-chain a try but steak came underdone. Cut, as requested, but cold. Creamed spinach fell thru my fork (too wet). Server was pleasant but "where you for so long when we wanted to order? And to ask how our food was? And to ask us if we wanted anything else...no, just the check at this point." Disappointing...

What a wonderful evening. Nh ad a great booth in the wine room which we love. The meals was outstanding. Hubby had oysters to start. We shared the large filet and lyonnaise potatoes. Steak was melt in your mouth delicious and the potatoes were a perfect side. Look forward to another visit here in the future when traveling. Strongly recommend
