We and our friends had an excellent dinner at the Delta King. We first spent time in the upstairs bar and enjoyed a glass of wine. The fillet Mignon was one of the best I've ever had. It has a nice ambiance and is good for a romantic dinner. The restaurant is part of the hotel, but we didn't stay... More

For a breakfast that is included in the hotel price, this one can't be beat. Most hotels, class notwithstanding, provide low end "continental" breakfasts. Not here. This one is first class and very tasty

Free, wonderful breakfast if you stay overnight in their hotel. Two eggs, sausage, ham or bacon, roasted home fries and a muffin. Ask for toast if you prefer....

stopped here for drinks and appetizers after an afternoon touring Old Sac. Although we did not have a meal, our service was great. The appetizers were very good, drinks were fresh and appropriate. The selling point was the boat itself. It features entertainment, and overnight rooms. What a great atmosphere-just like you walked into a gambling boat on the Mississippi.... More

My daughter recommended the Pilothouse when we stopped by Sacramento and were looking for a place for lunch. We feel in love with the character and atmosphere of this restaurant inboard on old paddle wheel river boat. It's story and heritage are enough for you to want to patronize it. You can choose to eat inside or outside on the... More

Eating at the Pilot House aboard the Delta King riverboat was a great experience. River view seating, excellent service, and well prepared food combined to create an outstanding evening. We would definitely return.

There are 2 food/dining options on the Delta King in Sacramento. The Pilothouse is the main dining room - I did not have dinner here, but did thoroughly enjoy the views each morning for breakfast (there is a full breakfast included in the nightly rate). Option #2 is the Delta King Pub, located on the upper deck - that's where... More

Stopped at the Delta King while driving through Sacramento for lunch. Found easy street parking (with meter) and walked to the boat. It is very charming and an authentic boat in the water. Had our grandson along and we ordered both regular and for him from a child's menu. The food was very good, and a lot of it, making... More

A group of four of us had lunch one Friday in August. It was not busy. The atmosphere was nice. We sat on the main level. The waitress was very nice and attentive. The food was good. We had the cheese tray and crab cakes for an appetizer. Both were very good and presentation was nice. Both dishes were very... More

First time I ate there and was very impressed. My sister ordered from the appetizer menu antipasto platter, caprese flatbread, fried calamari and the dungeness crab cakes. They were all good, but my favorites were the fried calamari and the crab cakes. The crab cakes were perfectly seasoned and cooked. I also ordered a raspberry lemon iced drink made with... More
