Hook and Ladder Manufacturing Company
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.

Excellent brunch. They were more than happy to substitute muffin for biscuits on the egg Benedict. Just excellent!
Great service with all restaurant employees using masks.
Hook and Ladder never disappoints. Their Covid safety policies are taken seriously - ensuring that eating there is safe and delicious!
Food was excellent, drinks were small servings for the cost but also tasty. Always love when we come to Hook and Ladder, the seasonal menu is always so much fun
Excellent food and service. I hope they can make it through this trying time 🙏🏻
Vegetarian options are somewhat limited. Which limits the number of times I dine there.
Great food, amazing service, atmosphere was welcoming.
A very nice menu with options for carnivores a d vegans. Tasty cocktails and a nice wine selection. The service was outstanding. This was our first visit, but not last!
Fun casual dining great service food was good
I like the measure that have been put in place for safety. Their summer cocktail selection is very tasty.
My boyfriend and I love coming here! I’m vegan while he isn’t, Hook & Ladder has MULTIPLE delicious options for us BOTH! They also have amazing cocktails and the staff is always very friendly. CJ is the BEST cook. Every plate he sends out has been perfect and leaving us wishing we had room for more.
Delicious salad! Very nice staff!
Andrew provided awesome customer service. The pizza and salad were great but I wouldn’t have written this review were it not for his service. Very attentive, patient and offered recommendations. Great time!
Despite the current health crisis, we had a lovely time at Hook and Ladder! The food was delicious, there were many safety measures in place, and we were able to sit outside. Our server brought us Champagne in celebration of our anniversary. We will definitely be back, hopefully in better times.
Great outside seating, flexible friendly staff, good food. Will go again!
Dinner date with my fiancé tonight was fabulous! Staff is always super welcoming and friendly. Food was delicious.
Great meal with good service
Andrew was amazing. Great food and atmosphere.
Father's Day Brunch
Hook & Ladder have done an amazing job given all the challenges. The menu was a bit shorter but we both found delicious drinks and food to enjoy. So glad they were open and accommodating on their beautiful patio.
Cocktails and food very good. A little warm in patio. They needed fans but would definitely return and recommended
My chicken was undercooked, so I got sick.
The menu was not as varied due to social distancing; however, the food was very good. We also love the friendly atmosphere and great service.
It was a perfect birthday celebration
Good opening glad to have you back. Our meal was very good, service was above average, new dining room setup seems very well throughout.
I am never disappointed at H&L. Food is always superb as is the service. Remembered that my daughter had worked there for many years and comped a starter, thank you!
Had a great meal, wonderful service. Will be back!
This was my first venture out since the Shelter in Place began, and this was the perfect place to start with. All of the waiters were wearing masks and they had really spaced the tables, both inside and outside so I felt very comfortable. The music was great, and just loud enough to have a good vibe without feeling like I had to yell to be heard.
And the food, absolutely DELICIOUS! I got the Eggs Benedict with Porchetta and Breakfast Potatoes and everything was amazing. The Eggs Benedict was made perfectly, both the egg and the hollandaise sauce. The brioche bread was just thick enough to soak up all the goodness and the potatoes were so perfectly crispy and flavorful I could have eaten 5 plates of them. Plus, the porchetta paired perfectly with it, just salty enough without being the only thing you tasted. Even better, they gave a really good helping of it.
Lastly, I had their margarita, well I had 2, and it was well worth it! Very flavorful and had a really great smokey flavor that made it interesting without overpowering the drink. The only thing I could think to say as an improvement, is their hot sauce could have been a little spicier. I tasted a small kick, but I was really looking for something a little hotter. Either way, I will most definitely be back for brunch again!
I was concerned about the menu because I’ve got two teenage boys who are purists...steak, fish, etc. I was worried there were too many fancy ingredients or unusual combinations.
It was amazing! Everyone loved their dinner. The burrata w/apricot mustardo appetizer was outstanding. My son and I went sharesies with the Philly cheesesteak and fried chicken sandwich. Yum. My older son went for the cioppino and said it was incredible. Service was great we’ll be back:)
We had a pleasant experience at H/L. The service, food, cocktails and ambiance was all wonderful. They even helped us celebrate 2 birthdays❤️
This was during COVID so ymmv.
Celebrating our FREEDOM!
One of my favorite restaurants in Sacramento. Excellent food and great service.
Fantastic food and service. Will definitely go again!
I love this restaurant. It’s always such a great choice. The cocktails are fabulous. Portions are perfect.
Food was much better than anticipated! The drinks are pricey but also are clearly crafted cocktails and worth it. The service was mediocre, but not terrible - mostly just inattentive and likely a sever with too many tables. In addition to the good food, the music and vibe were just right. We will def be back!
Interesting menu. Very nice wait staff. Not a great vegetarian or gluten free selection but decent. I would definitely go again.
Hadn't been back for a few years. Excellent and knowledgable service. Had the trout and brick chicken at server's suggestion. Not disappointed.
Came in for the first time to have Brunch. Brisket hash and eggs were off the hook. Hash brown Bravas were excellent.
Hook and Ladder is the perfect neighborhood spot— great food, excellent and friendly service and awesome craft cocktails. Patios in front and back with heaters make for great ambiance, too!
