Had a great visit to Rusty Scupper. It’s been a few years since I’ve been there. Food was much better than expected. The view is priceless.

The table and water view were just perfect. Our server was superb. She was very accommodating, professional yet friendly. She anticipated our needs and fulfilled our requests without making us feel like an inconvenience. As opposed to the server for our visit last June, she found us Shirley Temples which made the children very happy. Other members of the staff today were also pleasant. After first coming to the Rusty Scupper over 30 years ago, I was pleased to see that this is still a very special establishment.

Hadn’t been to the Scupper in a few years. I won’t wait this long to come back! Logan, our server, did a great job of taking care of us without being intrusive. The food was delicious: we had crab cakes and filet mignon. I might’ve preferred just a little more seasoning on my crab cake, but better to have not enough than too much. The Warm Butter Cake dessert was amazing, a perfect capper to a wonderful birthday celebration.

I love this place food is always great and the view is awesome. I took my husband to dinner Saturday after Valentine's Day for his birthday and as always the food was great. My only issue that night was the very limited menu due to the valentines Day and the prices were higher, hence why I gave a three star for value. I would still recommend and revisit. It's still one of my favorites to visit!

The place is ok. Prices are high for small portions. Quality of food is ok, not a destination. Service was lacking for a restaurant that truly was not packed. Location is very nice and I believe that’s truly why anyone would go there.

The view as always was great. However, the rest of the experience left a lot to be desired. While we were sat at our table quickly by the host, it took a while for our server to appear. And then, even longer for her to come back with water and then our drinks. I understand that Valentine’s Day weekend is an extremely busy time so did not have too much of an issue with this. However, then our crab dip was served with rock hard and very thick slices of bread that were nearly impossible to use to scoop the dip. Once our entrees arrived, my mashed potatoes were barely lukewarm, and for the vegetable there were literally about 7 small green beans on my plate. What really pushed the experience into being bad though was when my husband saw that his glass was dirty and had a large lipstick stain on it, unfortunately after drinking out of it. He kindly asked the waitress for a new one and she did apologize. We saw her speak to the manager and thought maybe the manager or our server would apologize again and perhaps offer to comp our drinks or at least offer a free dessert… but that did not happen, I guess management considers dirty glasses to be acceptable. We could have asked to speak to the manager ourselves but didn’t want to deal with the stress on our night out. Rusty Scupper presents itself as a very classy establishment, so I had high standards. However, even minimum standards of warm food and clean glasses couldn’t be met. We have gone to the Rusty Scupper for years for special occasions, but after this will not be returning. I’d rather spend my time and money at one of the many other restaurants Baltimore has to offer.

The food was not as seasoned as it normally is and the selections were slim. The sides were not hot but most likely due to them being pre cooked to prepare for the number of guests.

This was our first time visiting Rusty Scupper based in the positive reviews. We drove all the way from DC to Baltimore. Upon arrival for our reservation, we were seated immediately. For our appetizer we ordered the cream of crab soups. Our server brought us the Maryland Crab Soup. We both sent it back because that’s not what he had ordered. Next we ordered our entree. I was very disappointed because they customized the menu for Valentine’s Day. Even though we went the day after. So therefore, most of the entrees that we saw online was not on the menus. They have two options for the side order. I ordered the stuffed shrimp with crab meat. The shrimp was ok but the mash potatoes were dry and tasteless along with the string beans. The foods had no flavor. My husband order the Bass fish, it was good along with the dry tasteless mash potatoes and string string beans. The best part about our meal was the creme brûlée. Overall, we were a little disappointed about the quality of the foods.

I took my wife for Valentine's day dinner and was greeted and seated fairly quickly. We knew going in that the menu would be fixed but was not ready for the limitations as to the variety of course choices. I would definitely go back because the food and ambiance was great but not on a special occasion such as Valentine's day. The table location was great by the window overlooking the water. Being so close to the window did not help my legs from being cold

It felt so rushed. It was Valentine’s Day and we were halfway through our dinner before he brought our bottle of wine. Our food came out less than 10 minutes after we ordered and it was luke warm at best. The entree prices started at $49 so you would expect they would at least be cooked fresh... we ordered dessert and we were asked was it to go. I understand they want to turn tables but don’t make your patrons feel rushed. We were in and out in about 40 minutes. Our bill was almost $200 and I felt like I was in a fancy drive-thru.

It was our first trip to the Rusty Scupper and we went on Valentine’s Day. The one downside was that they had a special and limited menu for the evening. Unfortunately I have several food allergies, and most of the menu contained items that I was not able to eat. The server went above and beyond and checked with the kitchen to inform me about which menu items would be safe. The ambiance was romantic.

I would have to return on a non-holiday to really give a more accurate assessment. . As expected on Valentine's Day it was really crowed. We seated rather quickly BUT after that everything slowed down.
The wait staff seemed to be overwhelmed.

Love the harbor views that accompanied our delicious lunch. The seafood items on the menu were extensive and I liked that they offered a variety of preparations to choose from. It wasn’t extremely busy for lunch so it wasn’t noisy at all. Our waiter was friendly and attentive to all our needs. The dessert portions were large. I’ll remember that for next time and save more room! Also, I greatly appreciated the on-site parking and partial parking validation. This restaurant has never disappointed me!
