Superior service, superior steak, seafood and the sides are beyond delicious. It's hard to do justice to the consistent excellence of this family-owned establishment.

There aren't enough superlatives to describe this fantastic restaurant in the Eastport section of Annapolis. We went on a Saturday night to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was a perfect evening. Our booth in the wine room was comfortable and private. The steaks were the best we've ever had, and perfectly cooked. We shared 2 sides --creamed spinach and... More

We have tried MANY highly rated steak houses around the US... Ruth's Chris, Peter Lugers, Charlie's, Capitol Grill... This is THE best of all. I highly recommend if you are in the Annapolis area you HAVE to give it a try. Great service. Nice intimate setting.

We had four different cuts of meat ... each succulent. Oysters Rockefeller were wonderful. (It was a first for us, and we are not oyster eaters.) The creme spinach and potato medallions were very good. Service and ambiance was excellent. and the bread was to die for.

Went to Lewnes to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Moved a couple of years ago from NY where we knew all the great steakhouses. This was the first amazing steak we've had since moving. Aged, cooked, and seasoned perfectly. Will become our go-to spot!

Forget the other steak houses in Annapolis, Lewnes is the best. An opinion? Sure, but isn't that the purpose of a review. Do yourself a favor, make a reservation and compare for yourself.

We had an excellent dining experience, as good as a steakhouse can be. Great wine, steaks, and crab cakes. Perfect service, we closed the dining room. A must for special occasions.
