Stopped on recently with coworkers while on a business trip to Sacramento. Very friendly staff, relaxing environment, and decent drinks. Good place to stop if you have a large group and you're doing a bar crawl.

Real Saloons were not fancy, so step back in time to just some basic handmade food (loved every bite!) and some great sasparilla!

Came here with a bachelorette party recently and had a blast! Everyone in the bar was energetic and supportive. Not one unwanted advance from a guy, which for a group of women out by themselves is rare. The energy of the bar was very fun...More

We had to stop for a beer in this special Saloon that dates back to the 1800s. Great bar service and you can tell if the walls could talk, they would have wild stories!

The little one's enjoyed the pool table while the adults enjoyed the best Bloody Mary ! Worth a visit and right next to the rail road museum!

Was lucky that The RC Saloon was open late. What a fun experience. Was there alone but no one seemed to care. Service was friendly, food was cheap and cheery, and the ambiance was loaded with atmosphere.

This beautiful bar is full of great art (although risque) and reminds visitors of what it was like back in the gold rush days. Sarsparilla is 25 cents. Bloody Mary's are said to be the best in the whole city. Even if you don't have...More

Best blood marys but the place is kind of a weird rustic. Would go back for the bloody mary alone. But ok
