Very disappointed that the stadium shuttle was no longer provided on Sunday and nothing mentioned on the website. Almost missed kickoff because we had to leave and find other parking near the stadium after brunch. Won’t be doing that again on gameday ☹️.

We were a little disappointed with our dinners. My crab cakes were average. Average in size, I thought they'd be a little bigger. I think they had too much filler and the lump sizes were ok, but not what I expected for Baltimore, especially considering the price which is on the higher end. My wife's two lobster tails were good, but for $90 were way overpriced. I was shocked at how expensive they were. With a couple of drinks, said and a small tower, our final bill was over $300. Finally the Ceasar salad was also ok. WE asked to split it but didn't get the second plate. It was also really light on the dressing.

Place is nice, elegant. The view is great depending on where you seated. The only issue is parking too tight plus paying for parking after paying so much for dinner.

We were visiting Baltimore for a concert and decided to try the Rusty Scupper. It was an easy, scenic walk from our hotel. We were greeted and seated right away and started with signature cocktails. We had the crab soup and a salad to start but the star was the main entree- I ordered Chesapeake Bay Rockfish and got it ‘Maryland Style’ which is blackened with Old Bay veggies. Delicious and perfectly prepared. My husband got the crab stuffed shrimp and was very happy as well. Highly recommend this choice of restaurant!

We went to Rusty Scupper to celebrate my husband's birthday. The service was great. The server and staff addressed us by our last name
and as soon as we were seated, they wished my husband a happy birthday.

I had the stuffed shrimp, which was good. The crab dip and crab soup were very good. However, my husband ordered the rib eye steak. It was a fair size, but it was dry and a little tough, which was a disapointment, since it was his birthday.

Except for the streak, everything else was good. We usually go to Rusty Scupper at least 4 times a year. We will definitely go again.

Anniversary brunch was great, but server dropped glass and no one pick it up or checked to see if guest's were ok. It sat on the floor for 30 minutes and we/guests had to walk over glass to get to food and table. It completely ruined my time. I have a handicap and having to step over glass was not welcoming. I was appalled by the fact that servers and guests alike walked over and on the glass without a care. Other than that, we enjoyed the band duo and food.

for a brunch this expensive, MANY items were missing that we thought would be included. for instance, they had a tray of smoked salmon, capers and chopped eggs BUT NO BAGELS, not even TOAST. also expected crab legs, but the only fresh seafood we got were cold shrimp and oysters on the half shell. you can get crab meat in your omelet, but there were no crabcakes. it was such a bizarre hodgepodge of food that made no damn sense considering the restaurant sits on the water. A+ for view and that's about it.

Delicious food and drinks, perfect place to go after exploring all day. Delicious Seafood and really enjoyed the local preparation selections. Best crab cake I’ve ever had. Good plan to dress a little, but not pretentious. Very welcoming and would 100% recommend and absolutely will go again next time in Baltimore.

This is a staple for Baltimoreans, and we love to show it off to out of town guests. The Buffet Brunch is not to be missed... so glad it's back from Covid.

The have a 90 minute table time, now, so we were rushed through our visit right at the 90 minute mark. They put the check on the table, and cleared our dishes WHILE we were enjoying dessert. I understand the importance of turning over the tables so you get as many guests as possible, but that was NOT 5 star service. If they want to enforce the 90 minute rule, they need to pick up the pace at the omelet station. Guests have to wait nearly 20 minutes, because the cooks move PAINFULLY slow, and cook eggs on the LOWEST heat possible. It feels intentionally slow.

Other than that, it's a thoroughly enjoyable experience from the waterfront view to the Bread Pudding. Do not miss the bread pudding.

It was our first time coming here and the service was great. I believe Megan was the name of our server. She is amazing!

The food was good, but I do believe you should add more Turkey options. My partner could not fully enjoy the experience of this restaurant. At the very least, Turkey should’ve been available at the omelette station. That omitted a lot of options for my partner and it was just a bit disappointing.

Our seating was great, the view is amazing, and I love the operations of how they were able to get us seating in a seamless fashion. I would come back again.

Families getting together. We had a President of a university in attendance and we couldn’t sit with him and his family because we didn’t call. I didn’t know to call when we made the reservation online. So that was a bummer. Left a pretty bad impression. The server was nice but I believe they should’ve worked harder to accommodate us.
