Excellent food - best filet mignon I can remember having. Cooked perfectly. I hope to get back some time soon. The service was excellent.

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.

Best steakhouse in Annapolis. Better than most steak houses in Chicago, NY, other major cities. Service always good. Family run business. Sam Lewnes does a great job & always visits. Sides are family style. Shrimp entree (Garides) also delicious. Can't go wrong.

I've eaten at many steak places and this is one of the best! Fantastic cuts of beef, cooked to your satisfaction however you may like it. Everything we had was great from the warm bread and salad, to the filet with asparagus and mushrooms to the dessert. They also have an incredible wine selection for any taste or budget. Our... More

I can't wait for you to come back either! It was wonderful to see you were impressed with everything about your visit from the service to the complimentary breads and steaks. I'm excited you stuck around for dessert and that it didn't disappoint either. Looking forward to your next visit, Sam Lewnes More

This was probably my tenth time eating at Lewnes and it has never failed to impress. The steaks are always of the highest quality and cooked exactly as requested. The sides are all good, and I have tried nearly all of them. Not only is the food great, but the setup with small rooms gives the restaurant the feel of... More

A great quirky old building that serves great steaks. The only complaint is the parking...the Steak house down the block has the market cornered on parking.

I know our parking isn't ideal, but I'm very happy to hear our steaks have made it worth it and always keep you coming back. Thank you, and I hope we'll see you again soon! Best, Sam Lewnes More

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
