Unexpected Surprise

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 had lunch outside on the riverside of a deck. The restaurant has both inside and outside seating and on 2 decks. It is very nicely decorated. We did not rent any of the rooms. The staff was friendly, responsive and informative. I had a cup of delicious vegetable beef soup and the grilled asparagus appetizer. The asparagus I could... More

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

Had a late lunch and enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the passing river traffic. Had the crab cakes which was disappointing. Two small cakes for $18 and they were just warm. Fish and chips ordinary. They mixed up the other dish so had to wait for a while. Smoked duck spring rolls were better but had some tough bits... More

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...

Stayed on/at the Delta King River Boat hotel and had dinner in the Pilot House Restaurant for Anniversary, the staff was very attentive and took good care of us. The food was extremely good, and would highly recommend the Pilot House for a nice dinner occasion. Try and get a table on the river side to watch the boats pass... More

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.
