    We had a fabulous meal. Starting with very friendly and efficient service. The view of the water and harbor was superb. And then the food! I had the Cream of Crab soup which was so tasty with plenty of crab. We both had the crab cakes which was expensive but so, so good! Filled with large pieces of crab, little "filling" which made them just awesome! Fresh veggies was perfect! Hubby loved his fries. It was just a meal that we will remember as the best time in Baltimore. Thank you Rusty Scupper!

    I specified it was our anniversary when I made reservations. When we ckd in we were told happy anniversary but apparently I should’ve mentioned it to our server. I thought we would’ve got a free dessert or something but we were offered nothing. Again, I don’t think our server knew bc she was very good. I just assumed when I mentioned it during reservation it would’ve been passed on to our server. Other then that everything was great.

    Surf and turf….ordered steak medium…it was rare. Sent it back, part was so so, part was well done. I would have expected to see a restaurant manager or kitchen manager come out to be sure it met expectations. No one. There were other things that were minor issues but coupled together with food cooked wrong made it unpleasant.

    First the food to delicious and wonderful but Rusty Scupper was more than amazing! I made a reservation and told them it was for my parents anniversary! Mom is over the moon with how special they made her feel. If I could give them 10 stars I would!!! Two days of events, a sailboat tour and she keeps coming back to how wonderful Rusty Scupper was "they gave us the best table and three waiters and the FOOD!! So unbelievable!" They went the extra mile to make a couple feel special. Just amazing!

    Amazing brunch, with excellent options for all dietary choices. And the jazz combo delivers beautiful music at a decibel level loud enough to hear, but low enough as to not drown out conversations. Service is wonderful, staff are very attentive, and you never have to wait for food to be replenished on the buffet. Hands down worth the cost!

    We were seated right at the step people were constantly going up and down the stairs it was very hard to enjoy our meal.

    The Rusty Scupper is an institution. You are paying for the great views and the great service. The menu was adequate though pretty overpriced. The seafood tasted old (which would suggest why so many offerings are covered in heavy sauces). It was a fine date night spot, but its too expensive and the menu too basic to dine there regularly.

    Rusty Scupper - BaltimoreResponded on September 11, 2022Thank you Steve. We are so grateful for your kind suggestion and wonderful review. We are glad to hear you had a great time.
