“Great View But Nothing Else”
Reviewed May 16, 2009

Went to the Rusty Scupper to celebrate a college graduation. We had reservations for 3 PM but did not get any food until after 4PM. Service was terrible, employees had attitude, food was OK, view was great but the entire experience was overpriced.Would NOT recommend the Rusty Scupper for any occasion.

“Beautiful View, Terrible Food”
Reviewed April 3, 2009

I've heard the food isn' good at the Rusty Scupper but I thought, "How bad can it be?" It was that bad. Our $15.00 crab cake sandwiches came with burned buns, the fruit on the side was mushy and practically inedible, and the main dish salad my father-in-law ordered was pretty much nothing but lettuce.

I was so disappointed because the location and views are excellent. The service was fine. It could be a real Baltimore gem if they would only put a little more effort into the food. How hard could that be?

“Stuffed Shrimp Entree All Filler”
Reviewed March 29, 2009

As Marylander all my life I ordered the stuffed shrimp and was sadly disappointed. The stuffed portion was all filler. If you are a native Marylander you know what I am talking about. For this price I expect the majority of the "stuffed" content of the entree to be crabmeat. It was not. When I talked to the waiter he informed me that my dish was not suppose to be lump crabmeat. I told him I understood that concept, but that I didn't expect the crabmeat portion to be primarily filler. He did not seem to grasp what I meant by filler.

For folks from out of town who don't understand our seafood tradition the Rusty Scupper might be alright. But for a seasoned Marylander, used to eating crab dishes, it did not live up too our proud seafood tradition. Have had far better in many crabhouses in Harford and Cecil counties, where you eat on brown wrapping paper.

View was nice, and the waiter friendly, but was not happy with this dish and it was certainly not worth the price.
