I love this restaurant because the food and service are usually very good, and the view is beautiful. Unfortunately, on this particular evening while celebrating my mom's birthday our server was incredibly slow which ruined our dining experience. About 10-15 minutes after we ordered, the waitress came back to the table to say they we they were out of the trout that my mom had ordered. However, she didn't bring a menu with her to the table so my mom could choose another selection. She then then disappeared for a long while, presumably to get a menu, so we asked another server passing by to bring us a menu so my mom could choose something else. After another long wait with no bread on the table, no order in the system for my mom, and no sign of the appetizer that we ordered as soon as we sat down, we elected to leave and dine elsewhere. For the money you spend to dine at a quality restaurant like this, I expect the service to be top notch. I will likely dine at Rusty Scupper again, but most certainly with a different server and perhaps on a less busy night.

I ordered the filet , my wife ordered the seabass and both meals were absolutely amazing !!!!!!!!!! We decided after dinner why not dessert ? She got the butter cake and they deliver again on an amazing dish !! Would definitely recommend to anyone ! Service was topnotch!

Nice restaurant. Food was good. View of the harbor was great. We were seated near the back which was okay except for high server traffic and people walking to the back to take pictures.

I had two issues:
1. the bacon was under cooked, you had to dig deep to find pieces that were done!
2. order a drink 30 to 40 mins, before the cut-off and the waitress neglected to tell me that they were out of champange. I think she should have told me and gave me the option to order something else. When I finally got her attention it was too late to order anything.

The place was stunning! Had a 360 view of the water for some reason they where lighting fireworks off it was absolutely beautiful! The waitress is the only thing I had a problem with she seemed irritated from the beginning, didn't want to give me time to speak seemed more interested in other table, then us. Food was outstanding. Not the best presentation and I feel we should have got so much more for the prices of the food. Overall though between the view and the atmosphere had a great night. P.S its $9 for parking as long as you get it validated inside.

Excellent. Food and service are great. Portions are small. Understand the quality aspect and relation to pricing. Just a bit larger portion size would make the value 5 stars.

Really great dining experience. Everything we had was delicious and that view of the Inner Harbor didn’t hurt at all! Took my date but I’m looking forward to visiting again with my mother for her Bday!

Unfortunately the food was just awful. Overpriced and sloppy. Would have expected so much more. The ambience is lovely but just doesn’t make up for the quality of food. Will never be back and unfortunately quite turned off of seafood all together.

Had Blackened Rockfish Oscar Style, Grilled Asparagus and Maryland Crab Soup. AMAZING! I made a reservations a few weeks ago for my out of town guest, we were seated right away overlooking the water. Our Server John was very helpful and super friendly. Our ice water glasses and bread bowls were never empty. John checked in to make sure everything was made to our liking. All around another great experience at the Rusty Scupper. This is my favorite Baltimore restaurant to take family, friends and coworkers.

Magnificent views of Baltimore, especially at sunset. Wait staff are uniformly friendly and helpful. Food is mediocre at best and way overpriced. What you are paying for is the view.

Great food, and views. I requested a great view for the celebration and received an ok view; better views was available but felt like they were just seating people. I also requested via my reservation for someone to sing Happy Birthday and that did not happen. One person acknowledged her and never told me it’s a thing they don’t do.

The food was good. Our waitress was great. Some of the staff at some of the food stations during the brunch hour was more into their conversations than the guests. The jazz band did not play the entire time and it was a little hard to hear in the seating area near the docks.

Overall decent Buffett experience. Great food options.

We love it here. We come from DC for the Sunday brunch. We intentionally sit upstairs, away from the crowd. Much better view and off of the deck, which is accessible after the brunch. Of course, we’ll be back.

My husband & I celebrated our first anniversary at Rusty Scupper. The food & environment were both amazing. I had the blackened salmon topped with lump crab meat & he had the ribeye. Both very tasty & filling. Our server Shawn was every bit of perfect. He truly made our night special with his hospitality. His personality, knowledge of the menu items, & suggestions were exceptional. He even took the time to snap a few fabulous photos of my husband & I. Great, great experience. We WILL be back.

Loved the fact that they provided a shuttle service that picked us up and dropped us back to the Hilton. The driver was kind. Our waiter was so very helpful aiding me on my selections. I had the crab fettuccine which was delish. The butter cake dessert was to die for. So worth the calories! Highly recommend!

The food and service were great, but it is quite noisy - not a place for a quiet, intimate meal. It's a bit overpriced, in my opinion, but it's not outrageous. The portions are decent sized, and the views are spectacularly riparian.

I chose this restaurant as a celebration to my engagement. The setting was perfect, the food was amazing, and the service was unparalleled. Our server, Mike, was so knowledgeable of the menus and was very generous and so unselfish to make sure our night was special. I will definitely be returning for an anniversary dinner at the same table.

The waiter was very nice and helpful. The food was good but not for the value. It is a nice experience for Baltimore. One of the better meals we had near the inner harbor but that is because the other restaurants were below average
