On our recent trip to Baltimore for the 2018 Preakness stakes and after looking at several waterfront restaurants online we decided on the Rusty Scupper. The views were not disappointing, with glass around the whole building you can see in just about every direction and...More

This is the perfect place for a happy hour! We went before an Orioles baseball game. It has a beautiful view of the harbor, along with great food and drink specials during happy hour. You get a lot for the value! Highly recommended!

Came here for lunch while visiting the inner harbor over Memorial Day. So glad I did. What a fabulous meal. Started with a refreshing glass of chardonnay to accompany the delicious crab dip. Since we were in Maryland had to try the Maryland crab soup....More

The view from Rusty Scupper is nice from all areas. The food is decent, and even though the waiter forgot to ever refill my water, it was an OK meal.

The view is beautiful, but this is an overpriced tourist trap. My dinner started with a signature martini, which was warm. The oysters were good, but the lobster mac and cheese and other dishes were just ok. For the price, it’s not worth it.
