Really nice restaurant and very good steak! My dad was generous enough to take my family and I out for my birthday. Between the 7 of us we had a verity of the cuts and side dishes. The winner were the prime rib my dad had the porter house I had and the NY strip my older son had. Members... More

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

This is so distressing to hear. We're committed to only letting the finest cuts enter our kitchen, so we're so sorry that didn't reflect on your table. 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.

Amy, good choice on those crab cakes! And it's wonderful to know the rest of your party also loved their steaks. We hope to see you back soon! Best wishes, Sam Lewnes, Manager More

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

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
