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.

Our B&B rate included the cooked Bed & Breakfast option in the restaurant which both of us enjoyed. Having said that my wife is not generally a cooked breakfast fan and would have preferred a more continental breakfast option. We also took advantage of the $99 fixed menu offer. The Caeser Salad was fine but the Farmhouse Salad suffered from... More

The staff was nice and attentive. The dining room has a nice atmosphere reminiscent of fine dining on cruise ship, or in this case, a river cruise, though this ship stays put. Half the tables had cloth covers which seems to exemplify this restaurant's confused self identify. Is it California casual or is it fine dining? There's an upscale vibe... More

We did the B&B rate and breakfast was great, fresh OJ, eggs, bacon, potato and muffin. Also had dinner; it was very good and a very varied menu. Staff great.

A group of us met to eat along the water. We had fun but service was very slow and someone never did receive what he ordered. The menu offers a wide variety of choices and the food was good. With a bit more focus on service, the Pilothouse would be even better. I will try it again.
