We decided on this restaurant for the sake of our kids and the unique setting. Unfortunately, it was disappointing on almost every level. We landed at Sac Airport and needed breakfast before touring the State Capital. Parking was easy in Old Sacramento and we walked over to the Delta King. There was no wait and we were seated immediately. I... More

A beautifully restored riverboat hotel and bar with a great history - A fabulous place to have a drink especially on a hot day overlooking the river

My wife & I drove here from Fresno, Ca for lunch on Saturday, 10/19/16. We found the Pilothouse to be excellent! The lunch menu isn't large, but we knew that beforehand, we looked at the menu online Friday Night. My wife ordered the buttered fish sandwich and I had the Cheeseburger...Delicious! We were surprised how large the portions were too.... More

We were staying at the Delta King Hotel, so this was the convenient choice for breakfast and lunch. The options fit the tastes of our eclectic group, and everyone was pleased with the meals. As a hotel guest you have a voucher which covers the basic eggs-and-meat breakfast plus coffee/tea and OJ. For just $5 more you can have any... More

We mentioned that we were celebrating a wedding anniversary as we were seated. After dinner, our server provided us a complimented flight of 3 different flavor of gelato which was a nice touch. Dinner itself was adequate. My husband ordered the steak and garlic mashed potatoes. I ordered the petrale sole dore - I think it would have been tastier... More

My husband and I stayed overnight at the hotel and used our dining vouchers here for breakfast. Let me start by saying the ship itself is charming. Dining here was like stepping back in time. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the river view. Now on to the food! There were plenty of menu options for people using the vouchers. In... More

Eat here every year for my office Christmas party and have gone just for drinks. The good and service is great, have never stayed the night though. Great just to get a drink and sit outside watching the other boats go by.

The Delta King is a restored river boat, now a hotel and restaurant/bar moored on the river in Old Sacramento. The dining room and bar are wood-paneled, with pleasant views of the river, waterfront, and nearby bridges. The menu is not extensive but has something for everybody; their wine list is also very good. We are slow eaters, so always... More

We sat outside on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Beers were cold and served quickly. food was delicious with huge portions-we shared a chopped delta king salad and it filled us both. The sourdough bread was excellent with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Be sure to ask for a table directly on the river so you can watch boats and sea... More

Varied menu, reasonable prices, and one of only a few places in Old Town open for breakfast. Get a table on the water-side and people watch the folks on the Sacramento River. It also avoids the sun that shines through the windows on the dock side.
