Although busy, this small place is pretty bare with a few tables inside and a few outside. Can't drink beer outside so that limits the patron to the interior which is not particularly pleasant. Tood crowded with the cook right behind you and the food could be a lot better. Family run and they try but it's too much for a couple of people to handle.

Made the decision to eat here while in the old town -no regrets. The battered fish was crunchy although the fish inside was very then. The chips were delicious and the meal was served with tartare sauce and other sauces including tomatoe sauce was available to help yourself. We also had the clam chowder in the bread basket and it was also very tasty. We were here on a Tuesday and it was not very busy so if it was more crowded that could be the reason for the other average reviews.

We were headed to the Railroad museum and our google for a nearby restaurant led us to Railroad Fish & Chips. It is highly rated by TripAdvisor; I have trouble with the high recommendation.

First, recognize that you wait in line to order, order your food and pay before finding your table. The extensive menu is on the board on the wall. Your food is brought to you when prepared. Most of the tables are picnic tables in the shade, but you bus your own table.

My wife had the fish & chips, which was a better choice than my oysters & chips. The oysters could have been left in the fryer a few more seconds. The food was hot but there was nothing special about the fries.

RFC is easy to find, although the parking spots on this street in Old Sacramento are certainly as small as any I’ve ever seen. There are other shops and restaurants in the area, in addition to the museum.

The place was well within walking distance from the museum so we gave it a try. The seating inside is limited but there are plenty of tables outside.
We split an order of fish & chips as it seemed like enough to satisfy the two of us.
The place is rather rustic and the prices are good.
Enjoy

Went here based on all the reviews. We got fish and chips. For $11.99 I would think a drink came with it but no. All they had are canned soda or bottles of water for purchase. Fish was crunchy outside but one of 3 of both of our 3 pieces was mushy inside. Nothing noteworthy and kind of wish we ate somewhere else as this was our only stop to eat in Sacramento. Also it isn’t on the water and all you can see is a patch of grass or one of the parked trains. Based on the map I guess I thought it would be on the water.
