Wonderful view of the Inner Harbor, and great food and drinks as well. You can take the ferry across the harbor if you're staying on the other side.

A group of 12 of us went out to dinner as part of a conference we were attending. The food was great! The apps were outstanding, fresh oysters, artichoke & crab dip and a great dipping sauce for the crusty bread. Service was attentive without us feeling rushed. Ecveryone was happy with the taste & quality of their meal.

Went here off season, can only imagine what a zoo it must be during tourist times. Very nice place overlooking the water, arrived with 2 clients on a rather dreary march evening and were promptly seated at one of the best tables in the place right next to the winders (they must have seen my nice suit and figured I...

We went to this restaurant because of the good trip advisor reviews. Our waitress was great, very attentive. We had crab cake and lobster tail special. Lobster was prepared perfectly and crab cake was great with little filler. It was just an extremely pricey bill.

After celebrating a special occasion at brunch twice in the past 3 months, I consider myself an expert on their cuisine. Brunch is the best value in my opinion. They serve as extensive menu of seafood and various breakfast items that will certainly please even the pickiest of eaters. Although I typically don't appreciate "all you can eat" style, the...

We had lunch here after a visit to the Visionary Museum across the street. The view is wonderful and the food is very good. The warm bread with the dip is a reason to visit alone. Lunch was good but the Smith Island cake is the best we have tasted ever!!

My wife and I decided to go get some fresh seafood while in Baltimore. Since we stayed close to the inner harbor there were a few choices and we decided to go to this place. We were immediately seated along the picturesque tables along the harbor and then somehow forgotten by the staff. It seemed as though everyone thought someone... More

I had the opportunity to take my family to the Rusty Scupper for a surprise Saturday afternoon lunch. We were planning to be in Baltimore for part of the morning and I had heard great things about this iconic Baltimore restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. Parking was super easy, because they have their own garage there,... More
