Best (little steak) house in Annapolis (family owned)

Love this classy place especially the high back black leather chairs and the intimate bar when you walk in. They go the extra mile and I can just salivate over thinking about the slow roasted prime rib. All of the al la carte items are huge and you will definitely take home a doggie bad but it will... read more

My husband and I decided to try Lewnes for our anniversary. There have been very few steakhouses that I walk away thinking, "that was worth the money" Lewnes was worth every cent. I love to cook and steak is one of my favorite meals to cook, so it takes a lot to impress me. My husband and I both got... More

This restaurant is one of the best I've ever experienced!! My husband and I dined here with another couple on a date night. Our server was very attentive, but was extremely gracious in allowing us to enjoy our evening out, not rushing us in the least. He also had a fantastic attitude and sense of humor. What a delight!

Hands down this is one of the best steakhouses I've eaten at. And I've been to some great ones. From Chicago to Texas to NY. Lewnes is right up there with the best. Great Service, outstanding menu and fantastic wine. If you're ever in Annapolis this is a must do!

if you are looking for a professional wait staff and superb food go here. Reservations are a must. Do not even think about an impromptu drop in. We were seated on time. The wait staff is knowledgable and attentive but not intrusive. The wine list is great but expensive. Plan on $60 a person and up. Table talk is easy... More

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 happy to move us to a...

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.

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.
