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.

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.

Almost everytime we go to Rusty Scupper we have a good time but holidays with limited menues are disappointing. But we are still coming for over 30 years, even if they dont ever remember us.

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!

Waiter continued to ignore removing dirty dishes, server had to remove them to place next plates being served. Empty drink glasses stayed on table, etc. Became a point of amusement at the table.

The food used to be much better a few years ago. Prices have gone up quite a bit since the menu has changed. If you are in for the ambiance and amazing view, this is your place. Otherwise there are better options.

I had an early reservation due to the prior purchase tickets to the theater. There was a definite increase in noise level as time flowed into the more common dining times. Other than that small notice - the food, service, and view were outstanding. But, you get what you pay for.

This is a must if you are at Inner Harbor. The food and service are always top notch. The seafood, steaks and desserts never disappoint. Add the tremendous views of the harbor and city and you have a top choice for any meal.

I have eaten at the Rusty Scupper a few times and it was good. The time before this I did not have a good experience and let management know who was quite apologetic. I went back, and this time, they were great. Our waiter knew the menu, specials, wine pairing and was terrific. Our meal was wonderful. They make a concerted effort to ensure dinners are well cared for and happy.

There was a bachelorette party adjacent to our table that was constantly obnoxiously loud and using language I haven't heard since boot camp. Rusty Scupper was not the source for this behavior -- but you did allow it to continue unabated and unchallenged throughout the entire meal. If you are going to charge $50 a head for buffet, I expect you to see to it that it is not disrupted by this type of hooliganism. Do better. I've been to Irish wakes that were more civilized.

I always loved brunch here but this time was terrible, there was a party 2 tables over talking profanity, loud and not fun at all, you can see tables around them been annoyed, the servers didn’t say anything, they should go and let their managers know about it, it is great that everyone can go and celebrate but they have to be respectful to others around, also mangers should go around and check on the tables.

The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. What a beautiful dining room, overlooking the water with the lights of the city sparkling all around. Our waiter gave us plenty of time to talk, relax, eat, and enjoy the evening. Crab cakes, rockfish, salads—perfectly prepared. Well worth the expense.

This is the second time recently we have gone to the Rusty Scupper. The first time rocked our dining experience. This time, although the food tasted great, nothing was hot. It appears to of been sitting for while. The waiter did not come back to check on us and we ate it anyway. Normally, I would of returned the food to be heated. The view we had from our seats was awesome. We will return, but I only ask that the kitchen staff make sure the food is sent while hot.

Our service personnel was great. But, our soup was bland. The beer battered fish did not have any taste to them. And they gave me the wrong dessert! The bill price was not worth it, but we still tipped great.
