Hook and Ladder Manufacturing Co. represents the bountiful harvest California has to offer and the proud Sacramento history we continue to shape today. We love our city, and we love our state.

While looking into Sacramento’s past, we found that the Industrial Revolution was a fundamental time of change in the region. Steam boats pumped up and down the Sacramento River, and the Nation’s first Transcontinental Railroad was nearing completion. This period of bustling commerce and innovation helped lay the foundation of our city. During the year of 1850, a series of fires destroyed much of the city of Sacramento. A volunteer group, “The Mutual Hook and Ladder Company,” assembled to help rebuild and prevent future disasters.

We aim to rejuvenate the historic space at 17th & S streets by celebrating this time of industry and growth. Our goal is to build upon our city commerce and contribute to Sacramento’s future.

I am giving this place overall 5 stars. Came in on a Sunday afternoon and was able to pick seating - love the heated patio. First time trying the place and I was enjoying it - such a good time I didn’t realize how long our order was taking to come out due to a party of 20 before us. Waitress was super accommodating and brought out a few of their different appetizers to try while we waited. The chickpea fritter is amazing - I honestly couldn’t recommend more. Like nothing you’ve ever had before.

First, I will say that the food was very good. We were pleased all around with the quality and flavors. The staff were available and attentive. The service did not deliver seamlessly and had some room to be more intuitive. We shared feedback with the restaurant. The general manager was very timely and sincere in his response. We may have caught them early on a night when they hadn't hit their stride. We'll give it anther try in the future. The house-made passion fruit tonic water won over one of the ladies at the table and I enjoyed the peanut butter fudge at the end! The staff believe in the food and sell it well. It was a not an instant Hook, but it may be in the future.

Great service, though we were there before the evening rush. We had “the good life” dish which was brought out to the table by the chef. Absolutely incredible!

We enjoyed our dinner on the outside back patio. We began with the House Gin and Tonic, which was delicious. The House Special of homemade spaghetti with shrimp and meat sauce was wonderful. It had a “bit of heat” to it, which made the Hook and Ladder experience perfect for an old retired firefighter. Service from front door welcome to dinner is served was excellent. We’d definitely go back.

Appetizer, drinks and dessert were outstanding.
My entree not so much. The pork shoulder steak had a lot of rubbery gristle, kind of gross. This place is always outstanding, but this one entree was not good.

Cocktails were a great start! Pork belly was the standout appetizer but the charcuterie board at H&K is second to none. My trout with beets was incredible. The evening was wonderful with great service. Correctly paced and staff made suggestions we loved.

I was pleasantly surprised at the lovely ambiance of Hook and Ladder. It was so cozy, chic and somewhat romantic. The service was terrific, the waitress help steer us in making good choices for food and drinks. And the food did not disappoint whatsoever! It was fresh, so tasty with interesting combinations.

The Hook and Ladder has a rustic modern vibe. Low lighting, good service, americana food made this evening a treat for my fiance, her friend and I. The portions were just right. I ordered the porkchop entree which was very tasty. My only complaint is the price for the entree are high. A shared salad, and three entrees cost $102. Yikes.

Good little find in Sacramento while traveling. Ambiance nice and service was friendly. A bit taken back by the automatic gratuity to the kitchen staff on top of leaving a tip to server. I understand getting harder to run a small business these days, but personally, would pay your kitchen staff more. The servers tip would have been 20%, but we reduced it to 18% because of this.
