Coming back from AC, we decided to have a steak dinner; asked SURI for nearest steakhouse and landed at Lewnes. One of the best steaks ever!!!

I took 4 friends to this highly recommended local steakhouse. We were celebrating the arrival of a new professor at the local university. The service was disappointing. I had to ask for the waiter to come take our order3 times at the beginning, and the restaurant wasn't that busy. I felt like we were a bother to the waiter. For... More

On a friend's recommendation we journeyed from Baltimore to Annapolis to dine at Lewnes Steakhouse. It was quiet there on a Monday - lots of diners at the bar and a sprinkling of folks in the dining room. You don't get the waterfront view of Annapolis, but the booths are comfy with their high back leather benches and we were... More

We stopped in for dinner last Saturday. Overall it was very good. Staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the atmosphere. I ordered the filet and mashed potatoes, both amazing. My dinner partner ordered the chicken and another potato side dish, we split the filet and chicken to share. My only negative comment would be how dry & flavorless the... More

Have been to Lewnes numerous times over the past 19+ years and have noticed a decline in the quality of their steaks. On our last visit,my favorite (the NY Strip Sirloin) was a big disappointment... tasteless and tough (and over cooked). My guests also commented on the quality and preparation. All steaks were ordered medium rare but cooked medium and... More

We didn't plan to eat here on our last night in the USA, but we just sort of followed another couple in, and were so glad we did, it was just the place for something a bit special. Our ribeye steaks were cooked perfectly and were delicious as were the vegetables. We couldn't fault the food or the service, a... More

Recommended by a friend and Tripadvisors high rating. Unfortunately - my porterhouse was a poor cut of meat, with no char or even a grill mark. Worst expensive steak I've ever had. The rib eye was a bit better- but was not on bone. Excessive amount of butter. Sides were OK and the pecan pie was nice - not too... More

Our group of 6 went to the restaurant on a recommendation of some people at the marina we are staying at. All guests are steak eaters from across the US so their experience has a lot of background.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Lewnes! I had a prime rib that was cooked to my specifications and was perfect! The filet was wonderful as well. I think they use a house dry rub that is delicious. The side dishes, asparagus, mashed potatoes, and mushrooms were fresh, tasted home cooked and were delicious. The cocktails, a Beefeater martini was... More
