Limited menu but what they do, they do very, very well. Daughter and I thought the lump crab cocktail was superb--excellent crab. Wife loved oysters Rockefeller. We all had filets and loved them. Sides (spinach and lyonnaise potatoes) were terrific. Service excellent. Decor rather dark with old school booths.

We enjoyed a perfect day in Annapolis and planned dinner at Lewnes Steakhouse. With high expectations, we arrived early for our reservation and the hostess greeted us warmly while arranging for our table. We were seated and immediately impressed by the inviting atmosphere of the restaurant. While the service was great, the highlight of our meal was the selection of... More

We have eaten at most of the "name" steakhouses all over the country. We have NEVER had a better steak. Are the others as good, more varieties? - yeh! Better - NO! Small intimate atmosphere, great steak and wine list. We moved from Annapolis to the west coast, but whenever we are within driving distance of Annapolis we go to... More

This restaurant indeed serves very good steaks, but we also loved the oysters. The wine list offers a good selection of interesting wines. The ambiance is traditional and luxurious with separate booths for the tables. We had good service. However, the price is a little too high for the quality of the experience.

Rob, we're so glad that you loved our steaks as well as our oysters -- we take a lot of pride in both! We want to thank you for your kind words, and let you know that we would be honored to have you in again for another delicious experience. Best, Sam Lewnes More

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
