    Excellent HH experience…bar tender responsive and made great drinks! For dinner, was ~ 15 min wait to be greeted by waiter. Had to engage manager for service. Once we were visible, service improved. Food mostly good, except the Sea Bass Asian style was way too salty to enjoy.

    The four of us had a table by the window with a beautiful view of the lights reflecting on the water. however, the heating element right beside the table was overwhelming. The service was a bit sketchy, the waiter was odd and a bit smarmy. Some things were forgotten, a knife was dropped, and never replaced, and the waiter would only take a few drink orders at a time. The food however was very good and the portions enough for two people! Note: The uber drivers were confused by the ticket gate that you had to get through to drop the customers off by the front door. So we had to walk down to the street to get a ride back to our hotel.

    First time at the Rusty Scupper and enjoyed some great food and wonderful views of the Inner Harbor. Our server - Tyler - made some great food suggestions, and my wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We had the crab cake appetizer which was excellent with good sized lumps of crab. My wife had the Salmon prepared Maryland Style, and I had the Chilean Sea Bass prepared Asian Style - all were excellent and served piping hot. For desert we shared the Warm Butter Cake which was also very tasty. The only downside was paying $62 for a $14 bottle of wine, and their gift card processes. I mention the gift cards because we purchased a $100 ecard prior to the visit which included a $20 free bonus card. Since the card was an ecard, the server had to take my wife's phone away to process it - and when I checked the bill the next morning, we never received a credit for the $20 bonus card. So be sure to check your bills and your phones, and hope that the server is honest.

    We always enjoy the food, atmosphere and service at The Rusty Scupper. The crabcake appetizer is the standout item as far as we’re concerned. Always fresh and perfectly cooked with a delicious sauce. another favorable is the butter cake for dessert. So good!

    We went on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, so a quiet night. The waiter was great and the starter soup was great, but unfortunately they served me an unfresh piece of mahi mahi and I was sick all night. For such a premium restaurant, they should know better.

    First time dining at Rusty Scupper and it was a great experience. It’s a beautiful restaurant on the water and it was decorated for the holidays. My husband ordered a custom surf and turf and I had the mahi. Both dishes were well prepared and delicious. Although it is pricey, it’s definitely worth it especially for a special occasion.

    Excellent service! I wish I could remember our waiter's name. He was fairly new - just moved here from GA, but was so nice and made great recommendations. The food was exceptional. We had the small raw bar tower, the cream of crab soup (amazing), I had the bay scallops - which were perfectly cooked, and my husband had the ribeye and lobster - also perfectly cooked. We wished we had room for dessert, but we're actually sharing the steak for lunch today because we were so full. Beautiful harbor views, good music (and not too loud). Glad we chose this for dinner after our show!

    We ordered wine to come with our entrees. The entrees arrived and the server realized that he had not coordinated the wine. It was only then that he discovered that the bottle of wine we ordered was not in stock. Ten minutes after we began eating, he broke the news and asked for an alternative. Our meal was over $100/per person (party of 4). What was otherwise good service was marginalized by this failure.

    4 of us Dined Thanksgiving 2023 at Rusty Scupper Baltimore. This is our 3 rd time in a row. It's become a Tradition now and as usual it was Fantastic. Rusty Scupper does not disappoint. They had all the traditional Thanksgiving items on the hot, fresh buffet and a Great meat and dessert section. My friends said the Turkey was moist and flavorful & I absolutely loved the Beef and Ham. Especially that Delicious Ham😋 They also had Oysters, shrimp, & Clams! Everyone loved the Decadent Double chocolate brownies, chocolate chip cookies, sweet potato, pumpkin, apple,butter pecan pies! Also yummy Bread pudding with caramel! There was all kinds of puddings & sweets too many to name here. Our waiter was fantastic. She even went to find Cranberry sauce & brought it to our table because we didn't see any. We will definitely be back next year! Thanks Rusty Scupper ❤️

    Having frequented The Rusty Scupper for past Thanksgivings, this year's experience left me less than impressed. Not only did they increase prices since last year, but they also made cuts to the buffet offerings. The overall dining experience felt like a nickel-and-dime affair with additional charges for parking and an obligatory 18% gratuity. When factoring in the buffet, tax, gratuity, parking, and non-alcoholic beverages, the total per person amounted to $111. Sadly, these changes may lead us to explore alternative Thanksgiving venues next year.

    Way over priced. Honestly, the holiday mark up is not worth coming. It is a nice buffet for NON-Holiday. The reduced food selection was a surprise. We have been coming to Rusty Scupper for years, but won’t do it again.

    Beautiful and bountiful buffet for Thanksgiving with plenty of well prepared dishes. The meats at tge carving station were a little dried out this year. The side dishes were wonderful and the buffet main dishes were wonderful as well. Rusty Scupper makes the best bread pudding I have ever had! The noise level was high and one table near us was way too noisy and irritating! A great feast!

    Dante, our server to a great job. Thank you. We reserved a window for our 30 year first date anniversary, which happen to be at the Rusty Scupper. We made reservations on a Wed for Sunday evening. I put that in the notes. Little disappointed we did not get a window seat. There were seats available. We were put at table for 6 and there were only 2 of us. Little taken back with the seating placement. Just wish they could have accommodated our request, for a special evening. Take care, Mike Marcus. Other than that, you can never go wrong with the Scupper.

    Rusty Scupper - BaltimoreResponded on November 24, 2023

    Thank you Mike for celebrating your 30-year first date anniversary with us, and we're honored you chose Rusty Scupper for such a special occasion. We appreciate your kind words about Dante's service. However, we sincerely apologize for any disappointment regarding the seating arrangement not meeting your expectations. Your feedback is valuable, and we will address this internally to ensure better communication and accommodation in the future. We truly appreciate your understanding and hope to have the opportunity to make it up to you on your next visit.
