This is not another steak house. As they explain, you're getting the rare top cut of steak (and pay more for it). But you also get excellent, mature service that remembers your anniversary, birthday, etc. The high-back booths create privacy without isolation, the wine list goes on forever (both elite pricing and more down-to-earth), and the atmosphere is romantic, classic,...

Visited about a year ago, and it was great. The service was, as always, exceptional, since wait staff are very well trained and attentive. I had a great martini, but we needed a table since two of our group can't do booths very well, and that seemed to be a problem. While the food was good, it just didn't seem... More

I appreciate your feedback, Bryna, but I do wish you'd left this review sooner. It's hard for me to follow up with my team when the information is coming a year after the fact. Since it has already been a while, maybe you'll reconsider coming back to see us -- I'm sure you won't be disappointed nowadays. Sincerely, Sam Lewnes More

I have tried this steakhouse perhaps three times over many years time. On each occasion, despite looking forward to a great meal, I came away very disappointed. This last time, I admit I was not excited about going but we were guests so how bad could it be? Answer: Bad enough to be sorry that someone paid that much for... More

I understand that you were disappointed, but I want you to know that I am equally concerned if not more so. What you describe here is far from what we normally hear especially when it comes to showing folks the best for a birthday. Even though I never want to make excuses, it sounds like we haven't been at our... More

We decided to have a date night at Lewnes. Don't be deterred by the dated décor, the food is great. We started with the salad and house vinaigrette. We both had the petite filet and husband got the crab cake on the side. We also got a side of mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious. The server was...ok. Not that I... More

It definitely was an off day if our service was just okay, so I apologize about that, but it is still wonderful to see that we earned five stars with our food. I'm excited you joined us for your special date night, and I hope you'll come back again soon for another one. Warm wishes, Sam Lewnes More

On our anniversary weekend we chose to celebrate at Lewnes. We were not disappointed. The food is outstanding, service impeccable. Yes, the menu is old school steak house. And boy, do they do it right! Our steaks were cooked perfectly. I recommend the Greek salad-it's what a Greek salad is supposed to be! The brownie a la mode they surprised... More

this is a special event place. we like to go for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and new years eve. it's very masculine with the dark wood booths and black leather seats. making it private and romantic. the food is just perfection. steak is the best ever. their sides are served 'family style', so it is shared. lots of great options, mushrooms,...

Steak is what we're all about here, so it's always good to hear folks rave about them. As for the sides, I'm not used to hearing that they haven't been equally delicious, so perhaps the ones you've tried just haven't been quite to your liking. Please never hesitate to ask your server for a recommendation because I'm confident you'd be... More

Have eaten at Lewnes many times, as well as most of the other steakhouses in Annapolis. Lewnes is, by far, the best. Great atmosphere, impeccable service, wonderful sides, and the steaks -- oh, the steaks -- are so incredible. Have had every steak on their menu and have never been disappointed. A bit pricey, but definitely worth it.
