We had heard that the restaurant was a great place to eat at and had steamed crabs on the menu. My husband (who grew up in Baltimore) ordered the Jumbo Steam Crab $13.00. It was one crab and was at best a medium sized crab. He was very disappointed with the price for the crab and that it did not... More

We had wanted to stop by this landmark at Inner Harbour for awhile. The view was great. The atmosphere was what you would expect- dated but ok. Our server asked if we had been before and when we said no, he advised us to get the crabcakes. We both like crab so I ordered it over salad and my fiancee... More

Lots of delicious sounding menu items for dinner but I had to go with the crab cakes. They were excellent! I couldn't finish the two that were served since I'd also had a good sized house salad and too much of the outstanding bread and "spread" before my entrée arrived. The bread was fantastic! My husband had a steak which... More

For the second straight year, after viewing the nice fireworks show over the Inner Harbor, we popped in for some drinks and snacks at the bar. I can't say enough about the expert, friendly service, especially after these people had been slammed all evening with July 4th revelers. They were wonderful. My wife's martini was as perfect as could be.... More

The Rusty Scupper seems like a ship on the edge of the harbour and gives a full view of the harbour scenery. It was july 4th and the upper deck gave me and my friends an unforgettable, direct view of July 4 Baltimore Harbour fireworks. The menu on the buffet was quite limited but the crab supply was unlimited and... More

My girlfriend and I spent a weekend in Baltimore as a "getaway" trip. There is plenty to do in the Inner Harbor area and we had dinner at the Rusty Scupper on Saturday night. Our meals were both delicious and we agreed that if we went back to the Inner Harbor we'd eat there again. Prices were reasonable we felt... More

The Rusty Scupper has a wonderful view of the Inner Harbor. You can take a water taxi right to the front door. They also provide free shuttle service back to your hotel if you need, which is a nice bonus. The service was very good and the food was good. We had a very pleasant visit to the Rusty Scupper.
