I took my granddaughter on a date, as I did her mother at the same age. We did it up big, so we wanted to go to a perfect spot in downtown Baltimore, some 25 miles for home up north. We arrived a few minutes early on a Wednesday evening and were immediately greeted by the hostess and a gentleman who looked like he might have been waiting for us. (I had noted on my Open Table reservation that this was a special event - outlining the details as I share them here). We walked past numerous tables and my granddaughter and I were shocked when we were taken to the absolutely best seat in the house - a corner table for two situated with a 250 degree viewing arc of the Inner Harbor of Baltimore!!! We were ecstatic. The service was great. We had appetizers, wonderful main courses and scrumptious desserts. We couldn't have had a better time. Thanks to all who made our time special. And thanks to Open Table for making it an easy connection and reservation process.

I ordered the stuff shrimp n a crab cake i wasn’t impressed. It’s over priced for the taste. I’ve had better food at takeout spots. The waiter was nice but that’s about it i wouldn’t go back

Food quality has decreased over the years. Very unfortunate as this used to be my favorite Sunday jazz brunch.

very nice experience. Food was good as was the service. Had a table with a view of the harbor, which is what I had asked for. Little pricey, but you get what you pay for. It was a combination birthday dinner for my girlfriend and myself, so it was worth it. Would go again.

The appetizers were just okay, but the crab cakes were outstanding. Almost all crab meat and very little filler. Very little local fish. Desserts were just okay because of preparation not because of creative selections. Waiter was ver good and on top of his game.

We enjoyed our dinner at Rusty Scupper after spending a day with our kids at the Science Center. My husband and I really enjoyed our dinners. The kids meals weren’t great - one was really small and the other huge, but the small one was better tasting. The dessert was delicious. Deja, our server, was very nice, efficient, and helpful in describing favorites like the calamari and the butter cake. The sunset was beautiful over the harbor.

Our first visit and the perfect place to celebrate a birthday while we were visiting the great city of Baltimore! We enjoyed a crab cake appetizer, grilled salmon entree, and jambalaya entree plus yummy drinks. The view at night is fabulous and the wait staff were wonderful! We will be back!

Best creamy crab soup I’ve ever tasted!! The bread and red pepper spread was so original and delicious. I ordered the Crab Fettuccine and was pleasantly surprised with the flavor and little kick of jalapeño. I would go there again.

Meal was good service was very good as well. It was very noisy could barely hear the other people at my table talk. There was no blinds on the window where we sat and the sun was in my face the entire meal. However I was glad to have a seat by the water just wish there would have been at least a blind that came halfway down to block the sun

Was looking for an authentic Baltimore seafood restaurant, and saw this place was highly regarded by other reviewers. Food was good, but not worth returning especially considering the high prices. $57 for Sea Bass special? It is close to the tourist area and the prices reflect it. I’m sure there are other places that can make a decent crab cake for less than $45.

We had a lot of fun at the Rusty Scupper. We arrived early but they were easily able to seat us. The beverage and food timing was precise. The food was cooked appropriately...although the lobster in the "crab-stuffed" lobster might have gotten a little dry. The "Maryland" style rockfish was exquisite. Great early dinner in the Inner Harbor.

We celebrated our anniversary at Rusty Scupper because it’s on the water and food is always good. Server was fabulous and very attentive. Made open table reservation and noted our celebration - we were greeted with Happy Anniversary as we walked in and got complementary glasses of champagne. You cannot go wrong here!

The ambiance and service were awesome. The food was okay, or at least my meal was. I ordered the King crab legs and though you get a hefty portion the crab meat was just way to chewy, like it had been steamed too long. Not great when you pay a hefty mrkt price for only so-so king crab. My spouse had the Chilean sea bass Asian style and it was phenomenal. I know what to order next time!

Incredible experience. Expensive menu but if you go for lunch (before 4pm) it is a better value for some excellent food and views. The Maryland crab soup is the best anywhere.

I have been to the Rusty Scupper a few times. The food is always good, and the view of Inner Harbor is beautiful. The Chilean Sea Bass was outstanding, though somewhat pricey..the crab cakes were good, though not as good as I remembered. In all honesty, I preferred the crab cakes at Phillips Seafood the next evening. Rusty Scupper is a very good dinner date spot, though you should expect to pay well over $100 for two. The location and views are romantic and outstanding.

Birthday dinner, waiter Logan was spectacular. Very personable, respectful. Knew what we wanted before we knew. He is the kind of waiter who should train others getting started.
