OpenTable’s “100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America”

Just in time for that end-of-summer road trip or night out, online restaurant reservation site, OpenTable, just released a ranking of the “100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America” for 2016, and the Inner Harbor’s iconic Rusty Scupper Restaurant and Bar is one of two restaurants in the state to make the cut.

Rusty Scupper, located on the Inner Harbor, rises three levels above the water and boasts beautiful views from every table. The restaurant features a 270-seat open dining room, 75-seat bar and 200-seat upper deck with an outdoor patio that offers guests dramatic, sweeping views of Harborplace, the Inner Harbor, Harbor East and Fells Point.

“Rusty Scupper has provided diners with unforgettable dining experiences that feature high quality, fresh seafood and sweeping views of the Harbor and city skyline for nearly 35 years,” said Ed Prutzer, Rusty Scupper general manager. “It is an honor to be recognized by our customers and to be featured on this list with so many other restaurants around the country.”

The “100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America” list is generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the country submitted by verified OpenTable diners between July 1, 2015, and May 31, 2016.  All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of qualifying reviews for which “great for outdoor dining” was selected as a special feature.
