Well cooked trout with crispy country potatoes, scrambled eggs, and some delicious whole grain toast delivered by a highly professional and personable seasoned waitress. Sat outside on the gently rocking boat, terrific river view on a sunny but cool noontime Sunday. Good time all around....More

The Sturgeon is the best bar/restaurant on the Sacramento river. Very good menu and a special every day. The drinks are superb. Come in and get to know the staff. There is also entertainment on the Pontoon.

This was my first visit here and almost turned around and left before I went inside. There are signs everywhere telling people to hide everything in their cars to help prevent break ins. I decided that since it was 5:30pm and still light outside I'd...More

The gangway to this floating restaurant gives a clue of what awaits you in this old barge on barrels eatery. This very authentic Sacramento fish house is right on the water with river level views to match. The food is hearty fish & chips, peel...More
