On a college campus tour of MICA with my daughter we had worked up a healthy appetite. The Rusty Scupper certainly indulged us with a terrific meal. We opted for the coconut shrimp, Alaskan king crab legs, lump crab, and a delicious filet. We were shown to the "best seat in the house" which is in the corner of two... More

Right on the Inner Harbor with views of the water and the marina. Super friendly to the kids and easily accommodated the 7 of us for an excellent dinner. They provided a free shuttle from/to our hotel and and as so often is not the case, we were seated right on time for our reservation on a busy holiday evening.

Great service, beautiful location, easily accessible from inner harbor via water taxi or car. We had a large group, and our server was great. The crab cakes were delicious, and the view is worth the price of admission!

My family and I had an exquisite seafood lunch, and our server could not have been better. Unfortunately we were seated next to a rowdy bunch (who could've made the Guiness Book of Records for breaking the sound barrier) and who ruined what otherwise would've been an overall memorable dining experience. It wouldn't have been as upsetting if we hadn't... More

You feel like you are sitting on a yaught as you overlook the inner harbor. The food was good and service excellent. Would recommend anything with crab. I really enjoyed the cream of crab soup.

We visited the Rusty Scupper on a Saturday night in July. The restaurant is large, crowded and busy. Although we had reservations, we waited about 20 minutes for our table. The air conditioning was having issues, so the fan that was near our table was helpful. The views of the harbor are lovely, depending on where you are seated. The... More

My girlfriend and I have talked about going to the Rusty Scupper for the last year, last Wednesday we finally made the decision and booked it. I booked online using opentable which was an easy and simple process. When we arrived at the restaurant we were quickly seated and brought water without any hesitation. We were given an ample amount... More

Nice view of the Inner Harbor, but you're paying for it. I'd recommend another local seafood place. Bread was yummy.

Sitting on the shores if the Inner Harbor, the skyline of Baltimore was clearly seen out our window. Inside the building are pictures of many famous people that have eaten here. There is a bar and T.V.'s inside. The meals were very good but rather large, don't eat much for breakfast before coming.
