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

My review and ratings are based on two meals eaten on consecutive days: lunch at the Pilothouse Restaurant and dinner at the Delta King Bar and Grill. Our lunch in the main level dining room was wonderful. The waitstaff was attentive and accommodating. The waitress even lowered the shade to get a better picture of us as our faces were... More

Ate lunch outside on the steamboat. The view of the Sacramento River was great. The food was really good. Prices kind of high but it is more high end food. Lunch for 3 was $70.

Wonderful setting for a memorable meal with very friendly and professional service. While the food was not lavish, it was very tasty and fresh. Definitely worth returning to!

For my birthday, my husband surprised me with dinner and a room on the Delta King. The room was spectacular, the food was far from great. I was expecting fine dinning, but received Olive Garden fare. The mashed potatoes tasted like they were from a box. The surroundings were incredible, the food was a let down.

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