My husband and I had dinner recently to celebrate our anniversary. We remembered eating there in the past and we're prepared to be blown away. Instead we found the food good and our waiter friendly but we waited longer then we would like to request...More

My husband and I decided to try a new restaurant and decided upon Lewnes. The ambiance is great, staff very helpful, and food is delicious! I ordered the crab and shrimp bisque as well as the lamb chops. You will not be disappointed!

OUTSTANDING!! We found Lewnes' on Trip Advisor for a spot to meet our son and his new girlfriend. We flew in from Florida and trusted Trip Advisor to advise us properly and Trip Advisor did a great job. Small, clubby, very "old school steak house"...More

If you are looking for a mouth watering steak done to your perfection, this is the place. It's right down the street from Ruths Chris but we like Lewness much more.

Server was not very informative for it being our first visit. Steak was fair (Ruth Chris is better). The mashed potatoes have the consistency of grits and the asparagus was fair. The 1/2 portion of the salad is enough to share amongst two people. The...More

I didn't take notice to be honest as we went to just have steak. I'm sure they have non meat items on the menu. I would not recommend their sides though as they were greasy and over cooked.
