Delightfull

I always enjoy spending time on the Delta King when I am in town. It is relaxing to sit on the veranda with the cool breeze blowing from the river. Not to mention the sheer history of this place! I only had appetizers and cocktails on this particular trip but the crab cakes were delightful. I... read more

While in Sacramento for business, I found myself with a free afternoon and went searching for a nice place to eat. On the recommendation of a local co-worker, I went to the Delta King, which is a riverboat converted into a hotel and restaurant. The particular week that I was in Sacramento was blazingly hot, so it was nice to... More

This restaurant is set in a paddle steamer on the river. We ate in the bar and grill as there was more atmosphere than in the restaurant - it is the same menu and prices. The service was good and puddings were very good. The chips could be a little better and paint work on the toilet door needed a... More

Had lunch on the outdoor patio on the river. Super hot day but nit uncomfortable in the shade. Fun watching the river traffic. Food was very good. Smoked trout, speck wrapped grilled asparagus with a slightly tangy sauce. Server was fun and efficient. Not a five star experience but very good. Bathrooms need updating. If going to Sacramento and especially... More

Wonderful place for a special breakfast. We had the crab benedict and it was phenominal. The ham on the full breakfast was also terrific.

This is an historic riverboat converted into a hotel and restaurant. If you sit on the river side of the boat you have a great view of the river. The bar is located upstairs with nice views and is a great place for a pre dinner drink. Also ate lunch in the dining room and they had a nice selection... More

We had lunch on Memorial Day Monday – Old Town Sacramento was busy with a music festival but we had no problem getting a nice table for two outside overlooking the river. Lovely old river steamer and a great and cool location. Service was a bit slow but not bad. Beer was only bottles (surprising these days). Wife and I... More

Our stay at the Delta King included breakfast and coffee service. The coffee and juice service was so adorable served on a little plate with an open creamer, it really takes you back to a different time! I took a chance and tried the Salmon Benedict which was a great choice, I have since had it at other places and... More

We had a Sunday brunch and enjoyed the food and location on the Sacramento River in Old Town. The portions were plentiful and the Eggs Benedict were particularly tasty, if salty. I enjoyed the Bed and Breakfast combo. The server was a bit rushed and stressed. From the cold reception we received from the manager, I understood why she was... More

we had a very enjoyable evening at the Pilothouse. It's located on the river in an an old riverboat in Sacramento Old Town. The staff was stretched with a large party,so the new manager filled in to tale our drink orders. Nice to see that kind of team effort. The food was very good and our server, Jamie took good...
