The Virgin Sturgeon rocks

The place literally rocks. It is a boat and food is great too. This is my second trip to the Sturgeon and breakfast is as good as dinner. The crab omelet was delicious as was the trout and eggs. If you are in Sacramento you have to stop by.

The food here is awesome. Catfish and the shrimp are my favs. Love to be right on the water, nice experience. The folks that work here are super nice and make sure you have everything you need.

My very brief experience here was unexpectedly very bad. I was hoping for a good meal and a drink or two at the bar. Upon sitting down I got a nod and finger point from the gruff bartender indicating that he was ready to take my order. Unshaven for days and dressed in an old tee shirt .. An image... More

Recommended by our hotel, we tried it, against our better judgement; we knew better than to order steak at a seafood restaurant. I told the server my rib eye steak compared to a hamburger steak. Additionally we had a party of 8, and 4 had to accept mashed potatoes as they run out of baked (?). We were further aggravated... More

The Virgin Sturgeon is one of our favorite lunch spots during our normal safety patrols of the Sacramento River. It has docking facilities and we are able to keep an eye on the boat. Food is quick, plenty and flavorful. Often times we are limited in our lunch break time and the staff makes sure we get in and out.... More

We visited The Virgin Sturgeon after having been on flights all day from NJ. We knew we'd be tired and we wanted a local, no-nonsense place for dinner and a few drinks. This small restaurant is a barge on the water. You walk down an old airline gangway to enter. The hostess is also one of two waitresses. I started... More

I ordered the salmon with a side dish and vegetables and salad. It was a healthy meal, and I had enough salmon for another meal! The view is great- right on the river!!

Locals place kind of a hole in the wall. First look at menu and wasn't much that interested me. I ordered shrimp cocktail and cuban salad. Got to say majpr surprise. Shrimp cocktail was fine. The cuban salad managed to blow my socks OFF. It was great. Their salad dressing was uber spicy, just up my alley. I usually take... More
