Railroad Fish & Chips was a great find! We ordered fish & chips, clam strips & chips, clam chowder, and the garden salad. The fish was so flaky and really nice. The clam strips were not chewy at all but really tender. Everyone loved the clam chowder. Depending on how you like your chowder, it was thinner than we usually have. It was good, though. The garden salad was surprisingly fresh and very good. The lemonade was freshly made and very tasty.

The prices were very reasonable, and the portions were very generous. Two people could share the fish & chips. The service was excellent. When in the area again, I will definitely stop by.

“very good”
Reviewed June 28, 2016

We came here based on the reviews. They were right. It doesn't look like much, but the food was great and the lemonade was too. You have to eat inside if you want to drink alcohol. We had the fish tacos and they were great. We are used to great fish tacos (san diego), so we have high standards...

“One stop shop for lunch”
Reviewed June 19, 2016 via mobile

Dropped by old Sac for lunch while waiting for hotel checkin in Natomas. The menu made it easy to get four different dishes instead of going to separate restaurants on the small strip. We ordered the fish tacos, clam chowder in a bread bowl, and two kids meals ; corn dog and burger sets. Very quick service with price appropriate portions.
Great taste for each plate. Two items to note:
1. I love cilantro and appreciated the full flavor of the fish tacos but if you are not into it as much as I am you should ask them to put a little less cilantro on your order.
2. The burger kids meal does not come with cheese even if you ordered it. Being a cheese burger fanatic family, my kids love cheese burgers plain but just a burger on a bun didn't appease my kids to much.

Thus the 4 star vice a five. If it had 4.5 stars that would be a better choice. Food tasted awesome!

“Lovely place to eat”
Reviewed June 14, 2016

I like my calamari and chips so we ordered some. Nice to say that the chips were lovely and crisp, the calamari was well coked and crisp as well, very tasty. The tomato sauce with mustard in it was a surprise - thought it might not work - but it worked beautifully. Would go again.

“If you are on a budget”
Reviewed May 31, 2016

If you want to eat for around 10 bucks or a little more this is a quick and reasonably priced option while looking around Old Sacramento. I got the standard fish and chips which was a decent sized portion and tasted ok. Not much seating inside, but there is plenty out on the porch looking out onto Old Sacramento. Food was delivered quick. Not five star dining, but if you are on a budget, and not concerned about how healthy the food is, then this is an ok option.
