Unique, fun place for a drink and or meal

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... read 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...

After a positive day of conducting business in Sacramento, our taxi driver suggested the Delta King for dinner. I ordered the Spagattini Pasta with chicken roasted garlic tomato cream sauce, , andouille, cremini mushroom, and spinach grana padono. With this notable line-up of ingredients I thought the dish would be a home run. Unfortunately, the meal was bland and nondescript.... More

I love this old boat which is also a hotel. This boat use to take passenger on a overnight trip to San Francisco back in the day. This boat is beautiful and I love eating in the bar. It is a must see in Sacramento .

We were in Old Sacramento to visit the train museum and just wandered in not even knowing this attraction was there. Our lunch was wonderful. We had good service, a great view, good food and drinks, plus a unique experience on a river boat.

We were staying overnight on the Delta King and had heard good things about the Pilothouse Restaurant. We weren't disappointed. We started with the mussels with chorizo and they were fantastic. I think they were the best mussels I've ever had...and I've had a LOT of mussels. We split a rib eye steak that was cooked perfectly. We will most... More
