Our server was Roberto and he was very nice and attentive. However, the servers at some of the stations such as the waffle station and the carved meat station were not friendly and did not greet myself and my daughter when we approached. The chef at the omelet station, Chris, was also very pleasant like our server. The bathrooms were not well attended to. I expect better service from a place as popular and expensive as Rusty Scupper. I hope the service has improved if I decide to come back.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were excited about its location on Baltimore‘s Inner Harbor. However, mediocre service by a grumpy waiter, and food that was good but considerably overpriced and sparse put a damper on our dinner plans. The evening was redeemed by the beautiful weather and walk along the harbor.

The best view of the Harbor while you dine in my opinion. Featuring an extensive wine list (I no longer partake) and live piano music. A must do experience if you want to dine in Baltimore.

Went here with a group of 5 for a bachelor party dinner. Overall I would say the food was decent although the mahi mahi I ordered was not very flavorful and was slightly over salted. The vegetables that came with the fish weren't cooked properly either (mixture of over and undercooked depending on the size of the vegetable). Appetizers came out quickly which was a pleasant surprise but brings into question how fresh everything was (We had the calimari and crab dip). They have a good wine selection to choose from and our waitress was helpful with selecting the proper bottle to pair with our food.

Overall I would say it's a decent spot but don't think the food is worth the cost. I would go somewhere else if I were back in Baltimore looking for somewhere to eat.

Who cares if it's a chain-- this particular location is a GREAT restaurant. I've been going here for many years and it continually gets better. Just went for my mom's birthday and the staff could not have been nicer. We got a great table by the window. The server recommended the swordfish blackened. So glad I took his advice.
And at the end they brought out a dessert with one candle--perfect. No singing just a nice subtle way of saying-- hey, mom, we remembered!
My mom said it was the best birthday she's ever had.

I come to Baltimore 3-4 times a year and I can never miss dining here! FIVE STARS on everything! Sea bass is second to none, swordfish is excellent, and the service is top notch. I cannot imagine anyone ever complaining here!

The food was very good and was our drinks. We were not rushed to dine and the waitress did keep an eye on us. If I come back to the harbor I will eat here again.

I love the relaxed feel of the place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. I enjoyed the fresh bread. Enjoyed the Salmon, however, not so the veggies that was served with it. I had a wonderful night!!

For the price, I was expecting “wow”. I got ok. People who were seated after us were served before we were. The order was wrong. When we got the food it was just ok. At $50 a plate, my expectations were much higher. I don’t mind paying the price for “great”. My bill was $250 for 3 people. It just wasn’t worth it.

Something that was very disrespectful is that all the servers are placing the plates full of food on the piano while the blind pianist is playing. I'm not sure if they will do the same if the pianist can see.
The food was good but it took way too long. People that sit down later than us have their food served at least 30 minutes before us. And it was the exact same food.

A nice Inner Harbor spot! My girlfriend was visiting from out of town and wanted the traditional "Maryland Seafood Experience" to which the Rusty Scupper did not disappoint. The dishes were well portioned, flavorful, and definitely fresh. Our server was great as well, even on a very crowded Friday night. With that said, if you're a local or have been to Baltimore before, you'll likely find better restaurants that don't ding your wallet as much, but if this is your first time, the Rusty Scupper is a must for the view alone!

The food was disappointing, but the view was fabulous. I had a stuffed white fish of some kind that was pretty dry and not really stuffed - the crab and spinach were just laying on top. But the view was great!

We had to wait for a table even though we arrived promptly at the time of the our reservation. Our waiter was very nice but not exactly attentive. The head waiter noticed this and apologized stating our waiter was new. This made use feel better about our experience. The food was good; like many American restaurants it was over seasoned for my taste but the crab and swordfish in my meal was very good. The wine list was good. I would dine there again when back in Baltimore.
