We had our wedding reception for 70 people at Rusty Scupper in December 2018. The staff during the event was very helpful. The coordinators in the planning phase really helped with table layout and decor, appetizer and dinner selection, parking and vendor setup. The food was amazing and price was very competitive. Many different open bar options to chose from. We wouldn't have changed a thing.

From our experience searching for wedding venues, the Rusty Scupper does not seem as popular or as highly reviewed as some other venues in Baltimore - BUT we could not have been happier with our wedding there! The Inner Harbor views are amazing the price is actually VERY reasonable. Having a wedding at a restaurant takes off so much stress of finding caterers, buying alcohol, & renting tables/linens - from our experience, it was actually more cost-effective too!
The food at the RS is really incredible and there are so many options for buffets and various sit-down plated meals as well as a large variety of appetizers. They worked with us to make vegan meals for some of our guests and there also also plenty of gluten-free options.
The food and beverage mins vary for the day of the week, time of the year, and amount of space you need - while this worried us initially, the minimum for a Saturday night in April was much less than we expected and we actually added additional space because we ended up meeting a higher minimum anyway!
We had about 75 people, which was the perfect amount to rent out the top floor of the restaurant that includes the patio area overlooking the Inner Harbor - our ceremony and dancing were outside on the patio and it was so beautiful!
From the very beginning, Michelle Rigby was a pleasure to work with! She answered my many emails and was so sweet throughout the entire process, offering suggestions and advice when necessary. She and her staff set up all of our decorations and flowers that we had delivered earlier in the day. The staff was also so amazing during the event, following my husband and I around with appetizers to make sure we ate, always asking if we needed a drink, and politely waiting for everyone to leave at the end of the night. They also put together all of our decorations at the end of the night for us, boxed up cake, and sent us home with some food in case we were hungry later that night!
We couldn't be happier!

We used Rusty Scupper Restaurant as our ceremony and reception venue for our wedding. I am so glad we did. We were married on the outside deck and had our reception indoors. The panoramic views of the harbor were phenomenal!!! The venue has so much natural beauty that it wasn't necessary to have a lot of decorations.
We had dined at Rusty Scupper before and knew the food would be delicious. Having good food at our wedding was one of the most important things to us and they did not disappoint!!! What I loved about Rusty Scupper is that they have an array of food options to choose from and different combinations to meet varying budgets. Choosing a wedding venue can be expensive and overwhelming and I was pleased that they did not put pressure on us and worked within our budget to help coordinate a wedding both we and our guests loved.
Throughout our wedding planning process we worked with Banquet and Sales Manager, Emily Smith. She was a breeze to work with and was very responsive to our questions and those of our wedding coordinators. She provided good advice on ceremony and seating arrangements and even provided us with a list of recommended vendors (we ended up choosing a bakery and hotel recommendation from her). To be honest, the entire staff at Rusty Scupper was very professional and we received several compliments on our decision to get married there.
If you are in the Baltimore, MD area and looking for a wedding venue (or any event for that matter) I highly recommend the Rusty Scupper Restaurant!
