The restaurant is beautiful! We had a table by the window. Seeing the skyline from there was fabulous! We ordered Crab Dip and Coconut Shrimp as appertizers, Delicious! Ordered Caesar Salad that was okay but large quantity. For entree, Cake & Tail - Lobster tail and Crab cake with veggies and potatoes, Very Good! There was so much we couldn't eat dinner. Pricey but worth it. Check it out if you're in the area. Book a reservation, feel special that you're on the list for a great night out. They stamp your parking ticket for a few dollars off, make sure you bring the ticket inside with you.

Cold night. Asked for great view but warm. The hostess found us great seat across from the cold windows.
Waiter was good but had to ask for refills several times. Food was awesome. Had Plank Salmon. Appetizers were great too.
Crab dip and crab cake. Fish and chips was good too.

My partner and I was immediately sat at a nice table with a great ocean view. The view and ambience was perfect that alone deserves 3 stars. Our waiter Deshawn was a cheery waiter and had a good eye for attention to detail. He kept me and my date drinks from the bar refreshed ( we had the Lynchburg Lemonade). The drinks were “cute drinks” that wasn’t to harsh to have at lunch. Our appetizer was a jumbo lump crab cake now my only pet peeve about that was the waiter didn’t explain to us it was one crab cake but it turned out to be a nice refreshing app along with the fresh bread / red pepper aioli mix. The crab cake was defiantly jumbo lump and savory. My date has the fresh catch Atlantic Salmon and I had the shrimp scampi. My food left a lot to be desired. The noodles were dry and over cooked. The shrimp was only good part of my meal as they were succulent and full of flavor. My date was sweet enough to let me steal a piece of his salmon. I must say that was the best piece of salmon I ever had! Overall I would come back for dinner but I’ll be avoiding the shrimp scampi like the plague.

When we made our reservation on Open Table we specifically asked for a high chair. When we were seated there was not a high chair at the table. I immediately asked for one and until I asked the server again, we did not receive one. Mind you, our server did not even come to the table for 15 minutes. Needless to say, this started our dinner poorly as we our child was then becoming restless and probably bothering other customers by crying because he did not want to be held. We have visited the Rusty Scupper numerous times, but this was probably our last visit. For the amount of money we spent on dinner, our meals were so-so and our the overall experience was not pleasant. Our server was very courteous and understanding of our frustration and took care of us. Thankfully she worked hard to make it a little more pleasant for us. Definitely disappointed overall.

For the money, a great brunch. Service was good. Food was plentiful and a great variety. Other than the Chocolate Chip Cookies, desserts were so so.
The Seafood Mac & Cheese was the best of the prepared dishes. If you get a harbor table, the views are wonderful.
A great place for a family gathering.

Met friends for a catch up date. Views are wonderful from every seat be in the house. The brunch food selection was vast. Omlet stations, carving stations, waffle station and everything in between. Something for everyone. Jazz music really set the mood. We are repeat customers and plan on returning soon.

we had a great time at dinner , however service was quite slow the waiter had us waiting for drinks and would forget things we asked for , straws, napkins and butter . we had to remind him often of the things we asked for . the food was great minus a purple potato that was sent to us . I've never seen one before and when we asked about it the waiter said oh they come in many colors . odd . but over all the experience was a great one . I've lived in Baltimore my entire life and have never been . will recommend and try again

Not a bad seat in the place as far as views go. Reserving a table was easily done online. Easy to get to, easy to park. The menu was huge and everything that was tried was amazing! I totally recommend the Chilean sea bass ! Chris, our waiter was fantastic, fun, and knowledgeable. Drinks from the bar were perfect. I can’t wait to go back!

Our dinner was wonderful. I had the Chilean Sea Bass with Crab meat and my husband had the swordfish. We ordered the crab dip as an app and it was delicious. The view was great and our waiter was super nice. We would def return and recommend to friends visiting the area.

Our first time, we had a reservation for 430. We got there early and was sitted right away. Our waiter Jovonte, was amazing. He can over quickly and asked how we were and doing and if it was our first time here. He told us the history of the place, then started telling us about the food. He recommended the calamari.i told him that I had read the reviews and some were a little iffy. He then explained all the apps and went taking his time. He told us the light ones and the heavy ones. We decided to go with the calamari. I’m so glad we did, it was delicious. I had the a delicious salad and my husband had the best cream of crab soup he ever had. I choose the scallops , they were so great! He had the Salmon, he was so surprised. Why had we not went there years ago! We are so excited to go back. Thank you Jovonte for the great experience .

We were vert excited to go to this landmark in Baltimore and were excited to get a reservation. However, our experience at this restaurant was awful. The food was so bad that we had to send my daughter's crab cakes back because they tasted spoiled. The food was extremely over priced. I ordered a salad and added shrimp where I received 3 very dry over cooked shrimp that was extremely over priced. We had hoped for a better experience and we spend over $400 dollars for a meal and evening that all we have are bad memories from and food that was almost inedible. I do hope that this will readdressed. I understand it is a tourist site but guests should not be over charged for very mediocre food. I hope that that one day we can go back and have a better experience.

Absolutely wonderful experience. The suggestions from the server were spot on and the food was outstanding. The view of the Inner Harbor and Baltimore skyline at night was spectacular and, with a request for a quiet table having been honored, an appreciated romantic mood. A great place for a special night out with someone special.

Great service ! Friendly staff ! Attentive server ! Beautiful ambience and view:) My food was delicious crab cake and stuff shrimp, crab soup was tasty as well. My hubbies food was God’s except the lobster was definitely over cooked so it made it chewy ! Pretty disappointing considering the price of the dish.

We went for Valentine's day. For the price, the food was not to par. I talk to the manager and he ask me to come back another day because they seem to not be on their A game. There were not many choices because the chef pick out the "best" for the occasion. I am a huge fan of Cream of Crab soup. They gave it to me for free because that was not cream of crab soup. Remember people - for the price. I told the manager "the best part of the whole evening was the parking (handicap parking) and the wine bottle I purchased". Maybe it was an off night "Valentine's Day" SMH.
