This old riverboat still has his style! We stayed on the boat (clean, fun if small rooms....certainly not unexpected for a boat!) enjoyed a fun crew in the bar for cocktails, and then into the dining room for a beautifully prepared dinner....really excellent food! Service was professional and friendly, wine list was good....but the food will have us coming back... More

I usually review to show how pleased I was with the service or facilities and this one will be for the opposite reason. I have been in Sacramento since 2000 and have dined on the Delta King many times. So for this Mother's Day, I planned to take a group here because of their stellar reputation in the past. I... More

Five of us enjoyed an early dinner on this beautiful old boat, and nothing but good things to say. My entree was an amazing Mushroom Risotto, 2 others in the party had fish and chips (I tasted, yum!). Service was as good as I've had: Attentive but not overbearing. Would definitely recommend for a nice, reasonable dinner (my entree was... More

We went for dinner with another couple. While this restaurant is pricey, the food is consistently excellent, as is the service! If you want a nice place to go for a special treat, this place is it. It sits on the river, with the dining on one of the upper decks so that the views are wonderful.

We came for lunch on a Monday and we each had different items including fish n chips, the burger and a sandwich. None was remarkable. Food was just average (frys below average). The waitress was friendly when she came around, but didn't come around very often. The place wasn't 1/2 full of patrons so I'm not sure what the service... More

We had a wonderful experience. Great ambiance, food, and service. The location is on a boat in old Sacramento.

Had dinner on a Saturday night.Had a window seat with view of the river, very pleasant and relaxing. I had short ribs witch were very good. No bones and mixed with pasta. I didn't even ask for chili flakes. My wife had the fish of the day witch she really enjoyed. Service was very good.

We were looking for a place to eat at on a Sunday morning when we were wandering around Old Sac. We boarded the Delta King Riverboat and when to the Pilothouse Bar & Grill (upstairs from the restaurant). There is a bar in the center and you can eat either insider of outside. It was pretty cool, so we decided... More

We decided on this restaurant for the sake of our kids and the unique setting. Unfortunately, it was disappointing on almost every level. We landed at Sac Airport and needed breakfast before touring the State Capital. Parking was easy in Old Sacramento and we walked over to the Delta King. There was no wait and we were seated immediately. I... More

A beautifully restored riverboat hotel and bar with a great history - A fabulous place to have a drink especially on a hot day overlooking the river
