Hoppy’s Railyard Kitchen & Hopgarden was conceived to be a community tap-house providing high quality locally brewed beer from brewers that complement the cuisine created by Executive Chef Mr. Francisco Carrera.

Our New American Delta cuisine incorporates locally grown and produced ingredients from the bountiful Central Valley region.

Stop in for a pint or two while you enjoy a bite or two at the bar, in our large indoor dining room, on our front sidewalk, or on our wonderful and spacious back patio. All in the heart of Old Sacramento Waterfront.

Hope to see you, your friends, and your family in here enjoying yourselves.

Cheers! :-)

We reserved a late lunch on a Saturday for 10 people to celebrate my Son’s wedding. Considering how so many places are just starting to open back up after being closed to COVID-19 and we had never been here before we were not sure what to expect. We were all pleasantly surprised! Not sure if it was the timing or just luck, but this was exactly what we had hoped it would be and then some. It was quiet enough for us to have conversations, a wide variety of food and drink options, TVs for those interested in watching the NCAA basketball tourney, and everyone was really happy with their food. The deviled eggs were delish and our server was very attentive and courteous. This restaurant was everything we hoped it would be and really helped to make the day perfect for the bride and groom!

Ate out front due to Covid restrictions, yummy pizza and good people watching. Only negative were some of the people visiting Old Sac and rudeness of loud cars & blaring music from posing motorcyclists.

We waited two hours for our food with no solid explanation. There were only two additional tables with other diners. They did accommodate our tab. I will say...the restaurant and vibe is beautiful, just wished the cooks were timely.

I think they were training someone in the kitchen because we waited over an hour for our entrées and had to send back our calamari which was way over cooked. They made it good and our server was very sweet.

They have a nice courtyard in the back which has a fire feature and plenty of room. Because of the spaciousness, the noise level was a bit high; but one cannot have everything. The food was good, though they were out of our first 2 selections. The waitress said there was an issue with a no-show chef. Plenty of obstacles during these times; but they handled it well and we were pleased overall with the food and service.

Overall was very good, really enjoyed the signature cocktails. The rating for noise level was only for the traffic and tourist noise outside. That is nothing the restaurant could control. When we return it will be during the daytime. We did not care for the type of crowds and behavior in Old Town in the evening. That is unfortunate.

food ok and service good but the tables right on the street are next to alot of foot traffic, within 2-3 feet. Lots of no maskers made me a bit nervous to be eating that close. They have a back patio that might be better

Anna was very nice but extremely hard to understand. My party kept looking to me to interpret for them as well as Anna did. Made ordering anything particularly hard. Also, I had the japapeno poppers before and they were much much better. This time they were made totally different w way too much breading and not the same sauce inside.

Overall, I would go again if someone specifically wanted to go there....

We had high hopes because the reviews for Hoppy’s were great but unfortunately the service just wasn’t good on our visit.

The food was good.
- Grilled Peach Burrata: Although it was served with a nectarine and wasn’t grilled it was still delicious. Good serving size
-Margarita Pizza: Good but basic. Would skip next time
-Ahi tacos: Good quality fish, yummy sauce
-Ahi Poke Bowl: Delicious, a little spicy

When we arrived, we were not greeted for almost 10 minutes then told one second when a server saw us which turned into another 5 minutes. Once seated, our server was on top of it at the start then fell off the wagon. We walked passed a manager who was lecturing a server (in front of customers). Disappointing customer service on a relatively slow afternoon.

With restaurants slowly opening back up, we were eager to get out and show our support. This was the perfect place to do so with their large outdoor patio with plenty of space for social distancing. From the location to the ambiance and the food, we were very pleased. We will definitely be going back soon!

Food was great, but service was so bad. our drinks all came out at different times, and one beer was completely forgotten. Because the waitress didn't come back by, there was no way to rectify until we waved down another waitress. We ordered a salad to split as an appetizer, and it came with our main course - except my main course was late (kitchen confused the order with another table), so at least I had something to pick at.

The food was really good, and the waitress could've easily sold another round of drinks (and refills on the non-alcoholic beverages) if she just came by the table. Even paying was a long process.

She completely disappeared, and the restaurant was not busy. Perhaps she had more than one job to do? all the same, delicious food & beer.

I had the dine sac menu. Poke was ok, pork chop was delicious! nice and juicy, my husband's salmon off the menu was ok. Nothing special overall for all 6 of us.
The service was very poor and our server seemed not fazed at all by bringing out our entrees when we had just been served our salads or first course. Who does that?
Very unprofessional and as I said unapologetic. Still shaking my head as to what he was thinking.
The water glasses were kept empty until we asked for more, just overall not at all impressed.
We will not be going there again unless my daughter says to me she will meet me there with my grand baby.

Made reservations a week in advance and when we walked in we were sat at a table in the waiting room. Not the restaurant and barely even the bar. When asked if we could get a seat in the restraunt they were apologetic and said they would do their best but people were walking in and just seating them selves. We were never approached to move after several people left and other that walked in were seated within the reatraunt.
I'm pretty easy going but it was New Years eve and we came from out of town, had reservations, and this just bummed us out. 40 minutes after being seated we finally ordered our food and it came out pretty fast. It was also pretty yummy. We had rib eyes.

Stellar service! Our server made some awesome recommendations and I’m so glad we took his advice. The food was delicious. I ordered the Pony Express pasta and my boyfriend ordered the fish & chips. We both enjoyed our meals and it was a great dining experience overall.

I also love their blackberry cider! It’s so delicious.

I would definitely recommend giving Hoppy’s a try!
