This was a return trip for a birthday. The atmosphere is great for conversation and very relaxing. The waterfront view is beautiful and the food has always been exceptional. It tried the Chilian sea bass and it was delicious. My friend had the swordfish for the second time and it was as good as the first time. The prices are a little high, but it’s great for special ocassions.

The crabcakes were so e extraordinary I even had one for dessert. My wife's scallops were wonderful in a subtle way. My cioppino was delicious in a hearty way. Good wine list, but prices were high. Overall, dinner was delicious if priced a bit on the high side. Service was excellent. Our waiter was so on the ball, and he had a thorough knowledge of the menu and of seafood in general. Beautiful view of the harbor. Overall, a delightful dining experience.

In town for a day, so a friend and I had dinner there as we wanted some real Maryland crab cakes. They were amazing! Full of real crab and not drowned out by other ingredients. We also got coconut shrimp and calamari which were both excellent. The calamari was nice and tender rather than the rubbery ones you sometimes get at other places. Very nice atmosphere and enjoyable experience.

Table seating was not great. We were in a back corner and the table seating was very tight. We had a table for 6 but only 4 of us. If we had 6 then it would have been very tight and impacted the overall experience.

Restaurant ambience is amazing, food is delicious and everytime I dine here for brunch I am never disappointed. The parking could be a little better, however the overall dining experience is priceless. Unlimited mamosa’s, peach Bellini’s and Sangria’s are delicious and are the perfect beverages to drink while consuming the fantastic brunch items. I would recommend Rusty Scupper’s for brunch to all of my family and friends.

Brunch was fantastic, but a little pricey if you do not take advantage of the alcoholic drinks. 10:30 AM was a little too early for me.

When the menu says market price, one would assume that this item would be fresh from the market. Both my wife’s whole lobster and me “king” crab legs were frozen. I say “king” because they were more like large snow crab. The pricing was outrageous!!!

While the food was great, I had requested a window seat because I had invited several of my forme co-workers who were not from Baltimore nor had been to the Rusty Scupper. But we were placed around the back in the corner with a limited view of the harbor. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food but it could have been so much better.

Every few birthday, I like to came from Philadelphia to Rusty Scupper for the best Cioppino ever.
BUT not this time (Oct 5). Expensive for 3 shrimps, 3 mussels, 3-4 little pieces of fish and not even a slice of chorizo and a lot of "Rabbit Food" (same kind of veggies mostly raw) and a ton of tomato paste.
If your chef like this recipe, very bad. Cioppino used to be flavored with saffron, wine, lemon juice.
That's the best I can describe my experience at Rusty Scupper for my big 80 birthday.
Otherwise, the service was perfect !!

The Rusty Scupper is our go to event restaurant. It has a gorgeous harbor view. The staff is very professional and efficient. They are charming without being too folksy. We have never been disappointed with any of the dining selections. We were dining as part of the Fleet Week celebrations. It was the perfect end to the perfect day.

My first time at the Rusty Scupper. I took my wife for our anniversary. I made the reservations online and noted that. The hostess welcomed us and congratulated us on the occasion. The waitress was great and brought us what she said was a Champagne toast on the house (it was on the bill at the end of our meal though, but I didn't bother saying anything.) The waitress also mentioned the occasion without being told, it was like the whole restaurant knew why we were there! We sat at a window table looking over the harbor as almost every seat has that view! The waitress suggested options for drink and food and we enjoyed everything we ordered. We started with the coconut shrimp, then had the diver sea scallops and ended with a trio desert! The prices were a bit high, but I would expect that seeing as it was seafood and downtown on the waterfront. I will definitely recommend a visit to family and friends!

Lovely location, but the food was average at best. It's a Baltimore institution, but I think it's reputation has gone to its head - they don't seem to be even trying to make the food very tasty anymore.

Her menu recommendations as well as her perfect timing in bringing our food and checking in with us was very much appreciated as we were able to have a relaxing dinner and enjoy the views of the harbor.

EXCELLENT service, food, and eating environment. Would highly recommend to anyone selecting high quality seafood. FIRST RATE!! Would like to attend weekend brunch with the stated stipulation to the server that they add shrimp & grits to the brunch menu. Hopefully that will be added to the menu.
