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.

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.

My boyfriend and I tried this place as he always loves a great steak. Found the service to be excellent as well as the steak, but the sides were just ok.

Old style steakhouse with large fairly priced wine list offering superior service and terrific steaks and chops Unfortunately the sides come up short. French fries are really chips over cooked and unappealing. Creamed spinach is fair at best but too runny. Mushrooms were well done Service is competent and helpful. The surroundings are old style with comfy, close booths. Steaks... More
