Was there for my husband's birthday. Food was good,service was excellent. our server was Cassidy who was excellent. Word of mouth I hear the Sunday brunch is worth going to.
I did have 1 issue,in light of this coronavirus the person who was cleaning table after patrons left. She proceeds to clean the chairs (the back of them that is) but .never touched the seats. I was seated across from where she was cleaning and I then said to her "don't forget to wipe
the seats". I fact when my party arrive we had to wipe our seats off because of crumbs or food particles. So this proves that the seats of chairs are not being addressed.
Please orientate the cleaning staff. Patrons are watching.

The meals and drinks were delicious at the Rusty Scupper! The ambiance is romantic - dimly lit, waterfront view, and a pianist playing. The service was quick and efficient. I would highly recommend checking out the Rusty Scupper the next time you are in Baltimore.

I had lunch with some of my girlfriends for Western Senior High School. It is the oldest academic all girls public school in the city. Thirty nine years ago a larger group of us dined here for Senior Day in our white dresses. I can definitely say the food is still excellent and the view is Harbor view is even more awesome. Two thumbs up for the experience. I shall return again for dining, shopping and maybe weekender.

The table and water view were just perfect. Our server was superb. She was very accommodating, professional yet friendly. She anticipated our needs and fulfilled our requests without making us feel like an inconvenience. As opposed to the server for our visit last June, she found us Shirley Temples which made the children very happy. Other members of the staff today were also pleasant. After first coming to the Rusty Scupper over 30 years ago, I was pleased to see that this is still a very special establishment.

Hadn’t been to the Scupper in a few years. I won’t wait this long to come back! Logan, our server, did a great job of taking care of us without being intrusive. The food was delicious: we had crab cakes and filet mignon. I might’ve preferred just a little more seasoning on my crab cake, but better to have not enough than too much. The Warm Butter Cake dessert was amazing, a perfect capper to a wonderful birthday celebration.

I love this place food is always great and the view is awesome. I took my husband to dinner Saturday after Valentine's Day for his birthday and as always the food was great. My only issue that night was the very limited menu due to the valentines Day and the prices were higher, hence why I gave a three star for value. I would still recommend and revisit. It's still one of my favorites to visit!

The place is ok. Prices are high for small portions. Quality of food is ok, not a destination. Service was lacking for a restaurant that truly was not packed. Location is very nice and I believe that’s truly why anyone would go there.

The view as always was great. However, the rest of the experience left a lot to be desired. While we were sat at our table quickly by the host, it took a while for our server to appear. And then, even longer for her to come back with water and then our drinks. I understand that Valentine’s Day weekend is an extremely busy time so did not have too much of an issue with this. However, then our crab dip was served with rock hard and very thick slices of bread that were nearly impossible to use to scoop the dip. Once our entrees arrived, my mashed potatoes were barely lukewarm, and for the vegetable there were literally about 7 small green beans on my plate. What really pushed the experience into being bad though was when my husband saw that his glass was dirty and had a large lipstick stain on it, unfortunately after drinking out of it. He kindly asked the waitress for a new one and she did apologize. We saw her speak to the manager and thought maybe the manager or our server would apologize again and perhaps offer to comp our drinks or at least offer a free dessert… but that did not happen, I guess management considers dirty glasses to be acceptable. We could have asked to speak to the manager ourselves but didn’t want to deal with the stress on our night out. Rusty Scupper presents itself as a very classy establishment, so I had high standards. However, even minimum standards of warm food and clean glasses couldn’t be met. We have gone to the Rusty Scupper for years for special occasions, but after this will not be returning. I’d rather spend my time and money at one of the many other restaurants Baltimore has to offer.
