We had a catered meal, which was very tasty. However, the dining room on deck was beautiful and the menu looked very appetizing.

Looking for somewhere to celebrate my wedding anniversary and hit on the Delta King. Certainly dinner about a river boat is unusual: let's see if it is also memorable! On arrival the hostess showed us to a table which was less than ideal. While there were nicer looking tables beside the windows, she explained these were reserved for a "special... More

After staying on the Delta King, a full breakfast and I mean full was included in the price of lodging. I would definitely eat here again if not for a free breakfast. It is history, the food was great, the views sitting looking out at the river were relaxing. Staff was courteous and attentive.

We stayed on the boat and chose to have 2 evening meals there plus one lunch. All staff were extremely friendly and attentive. The quality of the food was excellent as was the breakfast each morning. A good choice of dishes all cooked to perfection. Prices were good.

Excellent lunch and wine tasting on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Great view of the river while having lunch. Afterwards you can explore Old Sacramento and do some window shopping.

The food was great, calamari, chicken wrap, burgers. Everything was amazing!The atmosphere on the boat was great. Right on the water, jet skis and other boats were passing by. There was music on the deck. It was a beautiful day and we sat in the shade and watched the water.

I have eaten at both places. Great little views from the bar part of the restaurant. More affordable and wonderful ambiance. Nice old school connections are there. W e had 3 couples there last year. All had a great meal and the drinks were superb.

Had a nice lunch here. My wife was very pleased with here ceasar sallad, I had an ok clam soup with an alkohol free O'Douls. The place looks a bit like a tourist trap, but it is not, it is perfect for lunch. Will definently come back next time I visit sacramento.

Had dinner and breakfast at the Pilothouse while staying as a guest on the Delta King. For dinner, we enjoyed a shared appetizer, one soup/one salad, two entrees, a glass of wine, for about $70. I tried a "small" portion of entree, which was just the right size after the appetizer, bread, and salad. Mostly we enjoyed the view of... More
