“Great food, wonderful friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

This past weekend, had the pleasure of visiting the Delta King riverboat.
Had a great meal in beautiful, old original atmosphere of years past. The service was top notch.
Then after, had many hard laughs in the theatre with the spoof of the X Files.
A great evening was had.

“A Very Pleasant Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

They make a great Bloody Mary and the salmon and cream cheese with capers on a bagel was very tasty. The server was very friendly and gave us good service. It was also neat to gaze at the Sacramento River which was very high at this time of year.

“Unique Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Good food in a unique setting on a beautiful renovated paddlewheel steamboat. Braised Beef Shortrib Ravioli, crab cakes, and Ceasar salad made a great dinner. They are good with sauces. Great service, decent wine list. The bar is small but vibrant. Everyone in both places seemed to be having a really good time.

“Pilothouse Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Name says it all...can't beat the unique ambiance of dining on the river aboard the Delta King paddlewheeler. When I say 'on the river'...I mean floating 'right on the water' - excellent view of Sacramento River and a good spot to catch the fireworks across the river at Raley Field after some Sacramento River Cats basball games (AAA affiliate of the Oaklands A's). Super late-night date spot for drinks.

“Great food, service and views; what more ya need”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Absolutely loved the crab eggs-benedict!! The sunday brunch was a perfect end to our weekend stay on the Delta King. Service was friendly and accommodating and the river view while eating/drinking was perfectly relaxing.
