    What can you say when everything was absolutely perfect? Our food had lovely presentation which was only exceeded by the taste. Our wait staff was extremely attentive, knowledgeable, and pleasant. The warmth of the subtle holiday ambiance and then view were extraordinary and couldn’t be beat. It was the perfect night celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary.

    The food was lovely. The server was very nice. It was clean and filled with decorations for Christmas as usual. The apple cider with rum was so good. Me and a friend had 2 of them. The peach drink was ok( I forgot the name if it). Great location off the harbor. Parking is 9 bucks with the ticket validated. The parking spaces are very small so please get there in enough time to find a decent parking location.

    Even for the restaurant business, outrageous markups on wine. For example, Vielle La Ferme, available at most wine stores in MD for $10 per bottle, sells here for $59 per bottle.

    The Thanksgiving buffet was over-the-top delicious. Attendees to the buffet were on it, refilling when needed. The servers were also on it making sure all drinks were kept filled, dirty dishes were taken away. All in all, an EXCELLENT experience.

    We have been going to Rusty Scupper for Thanksgiving for 10+ years. This year; however, it was quite disappointing. Some dishes do not need to be changed. The Salmon and the mussells were horrible. Stick with the standard and stop trying to change things. YUK!

    Food is subpar at best. Had filet w/crab imperial and mash potatoes and are were cold. Got bread & dip about 10 min after being there. Had to ask for another drink each time instead of being offered. This is an oldie but no longer a great staple For Baltimore. I suggest a HARD PASS on this restaurant there is Much better food at McDonald’s.

    Hostess was not happy when we asked for a different table, even though they were not busy. She put us in a section where we were the only diners which caused delayed service. Crab appetizer was awesome, entrée so-so. Limited diary free options.

    Food was okay but overall I felt rushed. The check came in before we asked for it. I was two glasses of sangria down when I received my check. Drink was also a bit watered down. I was looking forward to meeting this place but food and service wasn't as expected.

    My husband and I ate her for dinner on November 5, 2022. We ordered the crab dip and stuff shrimp with mash potatoes. We were pleasantly surprised with the flavors in our entree. To say it was delicious is an understatement. We live 2 hours away and I would came back just for the entree. As for the crab dip, it was good. I thought there should have been more crab and it lacked the crab dip flavor we were hoping for.

    Mark was excellent and our experience was also excellent! Only issue was my confusion regarding parking. The website correctly states that parking is available with validation at a cost of $9, however, the phone number provided does not allow you to make a reservation and the restaurant did not return my call for clarification and assistance. Other than that, the experience was excellent.

    The star of our meal was Alex our waitress. She was top notch, taking care to bring our various drink and food orders on time and perfectly places. She checked on us frequently and even brought our bill right on time. Needless to say the food was outstanding. I had the Baltimore Fish Fry. It had a generous portion of deep fried rockfish and large shrimp but only two oysters (four would have been so much better). Thank you Rusty Scupper. We'll be back soon enough.

She anticipated our wants and needs without us even making requests. The timing of service was well paced. I wasn’t expecting such a wonderful experience. I look forward to returning.
