Want a fun night dining out? Need a place to go that has delicious food and is beautiful inside and out? Look no further than Rusty Scupper.

Rusty Scupper is located in the Inner Harbor Marina in Baltimore, where you get fine dining on the water with a stellar view of the city. Getting in and parking is easy because there’s a separate lot just for the Rusty Scupper. On the inside, it is very spacious and family friendly with clear windows surrounding so you can look at the ships passing by. Above you hang small, paper, coned lights giving it a modern look.

Rusty Scupper has been open for over 30 years, and it’s obvious why. The food was great. They offer a wide variety of food from pasta to chicken to items on their kids menu, but being so close to the water, you could probably have guessed that they specialize in seafood dishes.

For people who like seafood but aren’t crazy about it (you don’t like a dead fish on your plate), I would definitely recommend the cocktail shrimp as an appetizer because it’s refreshing, and the cocktail and horseradish mix really gives the flavor an extra kick. For your entree, the crab cake sandwich is simple but tasty, and really light, so you’ll still have room for dessert (which is always a good thing).

If you are crazy about seafood, I would definitely suggest starting your meal off with some fresh oysters. You can tell they are straight from the sea, especially when eaten with cocktail sauce or horseradish mix. The Delaware Bay Oysters are worth a try because they are tasty and super salty. As an entree I would recommend the cedar plank salmon with crab. The salmon is prepared nicely on a wooden board and every bite or so you have a crab chunk which is delicious, and vegetables on the side.

The location of Rusty Scupper is super convenient because although you’re close to the city, it still gives off a peaceful, more relaxed, and isolated vibe.

I went at night, but right before I left they told me that I should come for brunch, which they offer every Sunday. After asking around, I heard nothing but good things about it. I went online and saw an insane variety of food ranging from traditional breakfast foods, a make-your-own omelette with crab or shrimp, mussels, Old Bay Home Fries, chocolate-covered strawberries, and so much more. It all sounded so good.

While on their website, I also noticed they had a separate Valentine’s Day menu that looked amazing, so if you were thinking of taking out that special someone, I can promise you Rusty Scupper won’t disappoint.
