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

Fantastic. Great for special occasions. Wine menu is extensive and the staff is generally knowledgeable for meats and wines. Expensive, but it’s consistently met expectations.

Dinner was very good. Our entrees were perfectly served as were the appetizers. We didn't expect to spend quite so much for 4 people however it would not stop us from going back for another special occasion event.

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.
