Lunch with Friends
Delta King did not have a record of the reservation (I had my copy with me). We wanted to eat outside but we had one person not able to climb the stairs. They brought a table to the deck on the main floor , set it up and provided excellent service. We had a great time.

It was a great Fathers Day.
It was a great Fathers Day. The food and service met all expectations. A little noise but it was crowded with families. Would be happy to return.

Father's Day fun
We enjoyed the meal, great presentation, flavors were excellent. menu had many options for a large group to choose from. Service was a bit slow, servers were rushing. Atmosphere was nice, lots of families for the holiday. We enjoyed our experience.

Had a great time in the beautiful restored Pilothouse Restaurant. The riverboat ambiance and scenic view were great for our anniversary dinner. The food was good too! Second time dining there and if you like dining in unique settings, this is for you.

Fireworks and the Delta King
Went to the Delta King to watch the 4th of July Firework's display. We (wife and I) had modest expectations regarding dinner. However, all of our expectations were met and more. The meal was great, the service and attention to us was excellent. We clearly will go back!!

Pleasant lunch location
We enjoyed a leisurly lunch on Saturday afternoon. From the moment we stepped on board the Delta King, the service was outstanding. We were 20 minutes early for our reservation but were seated immediately. We sat on deck facing the river. My out of town guests enjoyed watching the boat traffic.
The menu includes a variety of cold and hot dishes. We ordered a wrap, a club sandwich, and the Cajun seasoned pasta. All were well presented and delicious. Bread plates were on the table but no bread was served and the plates were never removed. Just a little quirk in a well presented meal.
Our server was very helpful in suggesting wine pairing for each of our orders and all the wait staff was friendly and attentive.

not in the dining room
I made a reservation for a special lunch with friends but upon arrival we found the dining room was closed and we had to eat at the bar. The menu was the same but not the ambiance. Overall it was nice just a bit disappointing. We visited in July so we ate indoors but I think outdoor dining would be nice when cooler.

NICE EVENING DINNER
We really enjoyed our dinner. and it is a nice place for a special dinner. But was a little disappointed not to get the seating requested for the special reason we were there(5oth wedding anniversary).
Everything else was wonderful, food, service, ambience.

Delta King Restaurant Rules!
My second breakfast on the deck of the Delta King in about one month, and I am eager to return. The food is reasonably priced, with hearty portions of fresh ingredients, expertly prepared. The service is impeccable, friendly and accommodating. I haven't mentioned the spectacular view and historic, singular setting yet...I'll save that for my review after my third visit!!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent, the support was friendly, food came out quickly. They actually have a kid menu, I was not expecting that. Look to spend upwards of $35 per head. It was definately worth it.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience. Wonderful food and services. This is a must-go place.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything + more
I must start by complimenting our waiter for the night. There was not a single thing he couldn't tell us. I feel terrible for not getting his name so that I could pass on my pleasure to management. He was definitely the highlight of that night's dinner. Not to mention, the spectacular wine list, seafood selection, and AMAZING setting! Paddleboats are a somewhat rare commodity here in California.

Having dinner on a riverboat was an unique experience...
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I booked a TravelZoo voucher deal at the Delta King PilotHouse Restaurant for a sommelier led lunch in Sacramento 3 months ago. We waited for a weekend that wasn't full of other plans to redeem it and were blessed to have had good warm weather on Saturday. Although we were seated next to the bar where the waiters congregated, our service was very good and the food was delicious. The wine pairings were remarkable. My husband is not a wine lover, and he was impressed with all three wine selections. The only complaint was that the halibut was overlooked and dry, but everything else was very nice.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
One word- fabulous!
Simply great food. It has excellent flavor and the serving is not too big. The service was excellent; the waiter was very knowledgeable. A must try!!

Special dinner out
We enjoyed our anniversary dinner on the river! Menu somewhat limited in choice but we enjoyed both our meals - pasta dish and pork chop meal. Great service.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Food and Presentation
The food was delivered on tine, hot, and looked and tasted delicious. Due to the late evening sun, the blinds toward the river were drawn, which obscured the view of the river. As soon as the sun went down they were raised.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was outstanding! Alice made us feel like welcomed guests, and the other staff seemed to be providing the same level of great service. The food was very good, and the view was one of the best in Old Sac.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the relaxed feel of this place. It was also a little Romantic overlooking the Delta River. I definitely would return to try more dishes. My wife had the Pork Chop Dinner and she stated it was excellent and the House salad was refreshing. I had the Grilled Ahi, excellent too.
Service was well-timed and friendly, it also has a full bar to order whatever you would like. It also has a great selection of dinner wines.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great, once you get acknowledged.
The dining for lunch is upstairs in the bar area and you would not know that unless someone who works there walks by. We waited a while before we were noticed. But once we were seated, service and food was really great!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Splendid way to end a long drive
We had made a reservation for the dining room. However, when we arrived and stood unrecognized at the hostess station for some time, we simply went upstairs and sat on the deck. What a great decision that was! The service was wonderful, and our selections were perfectly prepared. We really appreciated being able to sit in the fresh air and enjoy the river traffic while music from the bar floated thru the windows!
There is no question that the Delta King is the perfect place to dine after a long drive from the southern Oregon coast ... or anytime!

Relaxing lunch on the river
Met an out-of-state friend for lunch and truly enjoyed this experience. Some tips: Parking is difficult as you are on the river, behind the "main" street of Old Town Sac. Allow time to circle around, head to a parking garage a few blocks away, or pull up to the (not really obvious) sign for valet parking ($6). Lunch in the Pilothouse can be outside or in. We chose OUT, which was lovely over the river, but realize there are folks going by with jet boats and jet skis, etc., as well as those who have arrived before you and had plenty of brunch drinks, so their volume might be high. Getting TO the Pilothouse requires the use of stairs, FYI.
Once there, the food is great, service solicitous, and view very relaxing. Prices range $8-14.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Nice Experience
We had a wonderful and delicious meal and were well cared for by our server Alice.

We chose The Pilothouse to
We chose The Pilothouse to entertain guests from France. We ordered a variety of dishes and we were all impressed with our meals. We enjoyed the view from our table looking out on the river. The service was excellent and the wait staff was very friendly. We certainly plan to return.

On the river. Beautiful setting on the old riverboat with the original decor.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of a kind!
We arrived an hour early and they had no problem seating our party of six at a window seat overlooking the river. Fabulous food, excellent service, one of a kind ambience, what more can I say!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fine dining on the river
The setting is an old paddle wheel riverboat converted into a restaurant and hotel. Enjoyed the scenic views of the Sacramento River as we dined on their superb choppinno! Service was great! Cocktails were good too!
We'll definitely be returning again!

Our server Steven was exceptional.
Our server Steven was exceptional. On one hand, it was easy for him because we were the only guests in the dining room. He was conversational, polite, offered suggestions about food choices, and the mystery dinner, & history of the boat & old town. It almost didn't happen. We arrived for our brunch res right at 11. It took 3 women (not sure if they were hostesses or servers) to get our table ready. W/us being the only guests in the dining room, it was surprising that our table for 5 wasn't ready. But then it took 10 minutes to set it up! Getting our parking ticket validated was the same long wait in the foyer for a hostess to get a manager to do it. Unreasonably slow on both ends. The food & server were fortunately very good.

Outstanding Date Night
My wife was surprised by the impromptu reservations that I made for us to have Dinner at the Delta King. The food was Excellent and the service was even better!

Great Place for an Anniversary
We stayed on the Delta King for our 5th wedding anniversary (great hotel, btw) and wanted to stay with the theme of the riverboat. The Pilothouse Restaurant was a great place to have supper. The prime rib and sirloin steak were cooked perfectly as we ordered and tasted great. The portions for the salad and sides were just right and the chocolate cake for dessert was out of this world. The wait staff knew just when to come to the table to check on us without hovering. The waiter made good suggestions for wine and was very pleasant. We had a great meal in a nice place. The ambiance is great and watching the river traffic while eating a nice meal takes you back to a simpler time.

Unique and historic venue
An out of the ordinary and rare opportunity to dine aboard an authentic riverboat. Lovingly restored to pristine condition. Excellent food and service. Two restaurants aboard to choose between. If the weather is nice, sit outside watch the boats go by. Also the boat
offers an opportunity for lodging in a variety of rooms.
Prices are very reasonable considering the quality of the food, service and special location.

Great birthday dinner
This is the dining room on the riverboat The Delta King. We spent two nights on the boat, to celebrate my husband's 84th birthday, and the dinner was outstanding.

Anniversary Dinner - 22 years
Went on a late Sunday afternoon, drinks in the Pilot House bar, dinner in the restaurant. Romantic, beautiful setting, GREAT view as the sun set. Food was very good (steak and scallops). Waiter was attentive put not pushy. GREAT Visit

Delta King Pilothouse
The Delta King Pilothouse restaurant was really lovely. We had requested a table by the window so that we could see the river as we ate and that's exactly what we got. Our waitress, Alice, was very friendly and service was impeccable. She congratulated us on our "37th" wedding anniversary and gave us a complimentary dessert at the end of our meal. Speaking of our meal, it was great! The menu had a wide variety to choose from. We left very satisfied!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love-to-love the Delta King!!!
My best friend and I had our 30th birthday brunch at the Delta King and it was definitely a joy! The service was incredible, food was delectable, and the ambiance was one-of-a-kind! The manager even came to check on us and suggest attendance at the monthly dinner mystery. All of us will definitely be coming back.
Thank you for making our 40s-themed ladies brunch a complete hit!!!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow! What an unexpected surprise!
We brought guests from out of town to dine on Friday night (10/26/13) when Pilothouse was serving prime rib. The food was excellent, cooked to perfection and tasty. My husband stated that he does not remember ever having such a delicious meal in a restaurant. The atmosphere was very pleasing to the eye and relaxed with good wine and soft music. The service was friendly and professional and we did not feel rushed at all. The waiter took the time to educate us about the Delta King and answered our questions. This is a restaurant we will definitely return to and will recommend to others.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Awesome service, wonderful food!
Alice is an excellent server, friendly, nice, attentive. The braised short ribs was to die for... chiopino was top notch and perfectly spiced. The pork chop was spectacular... all around, couldn't have a been a better night with the friends we hosted. To top it off after sunset we were treated to fireworks as we took pictures along the railing upstairs. Love this place!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, Good views, Good music
What a wonderful evening. Dinner outside on the deck watching the river, boats, birds, and even a sea lion! Then move into the bar for a nightcap and wonderful live music. The charm and warmth was soulfully refeshing! Can't wait to do it again.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was a beautiful location
This was a beautiful location for our family birthday celebration. The service was excellent! Food was wonderful and the view of the river was exciting. Lots of boats going by and even a seal playing with the sea gulls!

Fran in PINK
We were afraid it might be crowded and loud but it was so nice. Low playing music in back ground and just a few couples enjoying their lunch too. We both had fish and the best fries, had a cup of lentil soup to start it was delicious so glad I ordered it. We are plan our next trip.

I went with a group of 10
I went with a group of 10 people to the Thanksgiving buffet. Buffets are difficult at best . The food was all excellent. We were seated in a private room , so did not have the huge buffet type noise. excellent water.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The buffet was pretty good. The turkey was moist and flavorful, the prime rib was excellent. My husband said it was the best he ever had. The mashed potatoes and yams were just so-so, and the green beans were undercooked. The oysters were great. We had a nice table by the window overlooking the river, which was nice. It was busy and therefore pretty noisy and a bit crowded, but overall we had a nice holiday dining experience and we'd dine there again if we ever decide to go out for Thanksgiving in the future.
My only real complaint was the lack of variety of desserts. A fruit pie or two or maybe a cheesecake would have been nice. I heard others mention lack of variety of desserts as well.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always Great Fun, Good Food
We often bring visitors for out of town to the Pilothouse restaurant and we also regularly dine there on our own to enjoy the very special ambience of being on a 19th century river boat, unique views of the River, friendly and accommodating staff and excellently prepared food.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We really enjoyed the lower lit, soft ambiance of the dining room. It was beautifually decorated for Christmas.
Bring your camera! We all took pictures in front of two elaborately decorated Christmas trees, the tower bridge, the water, etc.
Our server was fantastic and recommended perfect pairings.
The noise level got pretty high as the room filled up, but it was a small price to pay for all of the other wonderful benefits.
There were several couples having romantic meals, so I wouldn't recommend bringing kids in the evening.
We will definitely be back!

Lighted Boat Parade
We chose the Delta King as our venue for viewing the Sacramento Lighted Boat Parade and it provided a lovely view of the Sacramento River as we enjoyed a cozy, delicious meal on the old paddle wheeler. Old Town was VERY busy that night and finding parking was a challenge, but a quick call held our reservation even though we were nearly 40 minutes late.
