Everything about Lewnes is a superlative. LARGE comfortable booths. Pleasant, peaceful, interior design. Superior playlist (for people like me who like jump blues and big band). Lewnes provides generous servings of exquisite quality food that is simply but superbly prepared. I took my Mother there to celebrate my birthday, and we were both blown away. She had the filet mignon,... More

Celeste, we do all of these things in order to make sure our fantastic guests know how much we appreciate them, and it's pretty clear from this review that you appreciate our extra effort. A medium rare ribeye is always a smart move. Topping it off with a brownie sundae is even smarter -- thanks so much for coming to... More

I dined at Lewnes both nights this visit to Annapolis. Service was very welcoming, drinks were great, and the food was quite exceptional. In the land of crab cakes the ones I ate there were the best ever. Also the Greek broiled shrimp over rice was delicious. If I was local I would go every week. Its been a long... More

My wife and I drove across the bridge from Annapolis into Eastport to visit Lewnes at the suggestion of a local. It was an excellent choice. The restaurant is bigger than it appears from the outside. We sat in a booth on the far side of the restaurant. We shared a delicious Cowboy Ribeye. We ordered a Perrin Las Sinards... More

I was here some time ago and loved it. This time, it was ok. A good steak at a place with an extensive wine selection. Did it feel like an occasion? Not really. The food wasn't bad but not really that special. It would be hard to justify going back as it was not a good value. This probably sounds... More

My husband and I have been going to Lewne's Steak House for years and it is nothing short of excellent. Last night was no exception. Upon arriving, we were greeted warmly by the hostess and Josh, the manager. After a refreshing drink at the bar, my husband and I proceeded to our table. Our server, Eric, waited on us last... More

My BF and I went to Lewne's for his birthday. I've heard very good reviews about this and decided to take him here. We decided on the filet mignon which was SPOT ON! I've never had such a tender well done steak like there's (and that's saying a lot because I've ate a lot of steaks) Our server Patti was... More

Great steaks at Lewnes are just the beginning. The food is always very good along with an outstanding wine list and super service. My wife and I visit Annapolis every few years and always include a visit to Lewnes Steakhouse. We are never disappointed.

Had a filet and toe sides. It was all good but everything was so much smaller than the last time I was there. The sides use to serve at least 4 but they barely served two. the filet was at least 1/2 the size of the last one I had there. The filet was only about $36 so that may... More

Consider this restaurant for a special occasion when you want a really good steak and the usual accompaniments. The quality of the food is excellent. Service is very good. But everything is rich and buttery. If you get a pass from your cardiologist as well as your banker, treat yourself to an evening at Lewnes.
