We were a group of 16 and had reserved tables on their covered deck. Love the views of the Sacramento River, the service was excellent (despite the fact that we were 16 in number), and the food was very good. I had the Red Snapper - excellent! A few people ordered their steak and enjoyed that as well. It is an older building with few upgrades but the ambiance is great!

The Virgin Sturgeon is a Sacramento tradition. One of a handful of restaurants that are docked on the Sacramento River (docked as in "It floats") Good sandwiches, black beans, and seafood specials. Enjoy the passing boat parade.

You want down a jetway to the restaurant... it sits on the river. It's not a chain and the menu/food is great. Nice place for a lazy dinner :)
