Made reservations over 24 hours prior to our arrival, which was for an 85th birthday and 61st anniversary. Called 3 hours ahead the same morning to confirm. Waited nearly thirty minutes to get a table when there were several available for our party of six within view. Ordered drinks; beers in bottle(only) were safe, but mixed drinks were weak, watered...

We have dinner here every year on our anniversary. This was our 13th year. Love the people, the food, the atmosphere. We enjoy the views, whether from the bar or the restaurant, eating on the river can't be beat.

Subdued, yet elegant, upscale speak easy!! Great food, river views, well done drinks and live entertainment! No cover charge! Feels like a favorite neighborhood pub restaurant! Family friendly, girls might out, or hanging with your responsible buddies! Average menu prices, good value and service!

The service was wonderful . Surprisingly this is not a "tourist trap" restaurant . We had a table overlooking the river with a lovely view. The food was very good, perhaps even excellent. Everybody at our table enjoyed their meals. I would definitely dine here again if visiting Sacramento.

We sat at an outside table, upstairs, with a view overlooking the River. Very attentive service, and we enjoyed tasty appetizers of Crab Cakes with a delightful remoulade. We also enjoyed the Cheese Flight, which is varied and delicious, with a French Triple Cream Cheese (my favorite indulgence), a Cheese with Port & a Bleu Cheese of sorts. They give... More

Just stopped by with a colleague for a drink. On a sunny afternoon it's wonderful out on the deck. Inside they often have live music so not so good to talk. In the fall (a trip before this one), was really nice to sit out as dusk fell, and watch the bats as they started flying up and down the... More

Found this place in the touristy area of Old Sac. Was expecting high prices and forgettable food. Our meals were all quite good and the service was attentive and friendly! Sat at an outdoor table directly overlooking the river with a view of the bridge. I would definitely recommend this place!

Service was wonderful. Our server was very accommodating regarding our preferences and came back to table regularly for refills and other requests we made. The food was superior. Try the bacon! Out of this world, scrumptious!

Located on the Delta King this restaurant has a great old time feel to it. On an old river boat. Nice to sit by outside enjoying the sun, food and drinks with friends.
