Great service and an amazing view, but the food was lackluster at best. Shellfish were obviously frozen, not well spiced. Maybe the chef was having an off day.

Best Crab Cakes Ever!
Lump Crab Fettuccine not so good. Pasta was gummy with not enough sauce
Chilean Sea Bass was good
Service Good if you want a long meal. They are obvious short staffed.

Sunday brunch at Rusty Scupper is always delightful. This Sunday (Sept 12 2021) was outstanding. Smaller crowd, plentiful variety of delicious food, never rushed, energetic and happy server. Picture perfect day on the Inner Harbor.

We've only gone for the Sunday brunch, but what food is served is great! Everything from scrambled eggs, huge omelets, waffle bar, peel and eat steamed shrimp, various salads, prime rib, and deserts; there's something for everyone.

Amazing staff and food. Tables were a bit small for what I expected, but everything was beautiful and well put together. We were seated immediately, and the server came to the table quickly and brought drinks and our entrees out fast as well. The atmosphere was moderately quiet minus the two younger girls that sat behind us playing videos on their phones. Had the tables been a big more spread out they probably wouldn’t have bothered us as much. Outside of that, experience was excellent.

The service and the food was great!! We did have a table next to us that was pretty loud and I felt he should have been asked to lower his tone but no one said anything. My drink I requested wasn’t made properly but the service and food made up for the negative points! Will definitely go again.

Came to the rusty scupper with my boyfriend for dinner. For appetizers we ordered the calamari and a Caesar salad. The calamari was great, the Caesar salad was ok the dressing was more on the mayonnaise side so we weren’t a fan of it. The entrees were delicious. I had the shrimp and grits (taste even better the next day) and my bf ordered the crispy whole fish which was seasoned and fried to perfection! We also had the butter cake which was delicious!! The drinks were really good not watered down at all. We both had margaritas one frozen strawberry margarita and a platinum margarita (very strong but good).

My son and I very much enjoyed our dining experience. Absolutely love the location and views. The crab dip was delicious , and I normally do not eat crab. Salmon was cooked well and crisp on the outside. The fried fish platter with fries was excellent. And great service! Need reservations

To start, the view of the Inner Harbor and overall aesthetic of the restaurant are great. Service was very attentive and knowledgeable. All of the food was amazing! Everything was delicious, without being too filling, and reasonably priced. Easily one of my best restaurant experiences!

We had been to The Rusty Scupper for lunch before, but this was our first dinner experience and it was wonderful. We had a nice table with a view of the harbor and didn't feel like we were crammed in to close to other diners. Our server was super friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We had Tomato not like other places which overkill the dish in dressing. I had the crab stuffed shrimp and have to say that it was really good. The shrimp were perfectly grilled and the crab "stuffing" was loaded in crab with the right touch of binder. My boyfriend doesn't eat much seafood so he opted for the Ribeye which was cooked and seasoned perfectly. As odd as it is to highlight a side, I must say the Mashed Potatoes served with both of our dishes was soo good. So much that we even asked our server about them. (I know potatoes right?) She said they are made in house every day. We finished with the Warm Butter Cake which was more than enough for two people. It reminded us of a Strawberry Short Cake. Can't say enough great things about our experience. It had been a while since we we went out for a nice dinner and the Scupper did not disappoint.
