Great Beer
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. Matthew Andrews.

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!

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.

Food was delicious and our server, Alex, was great. She was very knowledgeable on the menu and draft selection.

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.

Every single employee who helped our table was great. From Jessee the host, to our bartender Justin, and our server Taylor. We had a large party and appreciated the staff being helpful, patient, and kind. And the food was great!

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!

Server, Justin, made the day for us. His suggestions were spot-on. He was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. Very nice ambiance. Try the bison sliders. Very tasty.

We had a good meal here when in Old Town Sac. The service was good by our waitress but the kitchen was slow getting the food out. Everything was delicious and fresh.

What a disappointment. We had a 6:15 reservation and when we arrived, the restaurant was virtually empty. Our server was nice enough but the expediting of our food was INCREDIBLY slow. The one plus to our dinner was the Up in Smoke cocktail. Otherwise, the food was greasy, bland, lukewarm and overpriced (the “large” roasted vegetable salad was $15 and might have filled a 1/2 cup measuring cup, if that. It was actually kind of insulting. We will not be returning.

Super disappointed with the food; burnt burger, nasty turkey sandwich (wet bread that fell apart, unappetizing fuschia colored sauce, and turkey that had a fish smell/taste to it). First time in my life I've ever had to return an iced tea, it tasted like it was 7 days old with the most sharp bitter aftertaste. Unfortunate experience overall, food took over 50 mins to get to the table.

We had to have fairly quick service, as we were going to an event at the Golden One center, our waitress made sure we got everything and our bill in a very timely manner.

The food was incredible and the ambience is modern and fun with a fabulous back patio dining option. Unfortunately for us, although our server himself was great, they were very understaffed so it was extremely slow service.

Loved the place - the prices for the club sandwich & pizza was a wee bit high but tasty - and we were with friends so, all was good, anyway.

Been a Hoppy fan for years, and was very underwhelmed. Service for crazy slow, as was food. Steak and burger were very over cooked as was my son's pizza. The person (not our waitress) who delivered the pizza immediately said it wasn't right and too burnt and they were already making a new one. Water comes in tiny glasses, instead of normal pint glasses. Love the new location, but pricey food for quality.

Positives. Food was tasty and came in good portions.
Bummers. Overall service was poor. Front desk left me on hold for ten minutes, then I hung up and called back, front desk told me it wasn't busy at all and we could move our reservation back. Wait staff not knowledgeable about menu. Took drink order, came back told us they were out of that drink. Took our food order and came back and told us that meal wasn't available. 1 of 3 dessert on the menu, not available.
Wouldn't go back personally.

The restaurant is very clean, well decorated and up to date. They have a very large beer and wine selection, which was good. The food was only fair, I had a chicken sandwich that was on a regular bun that they called brioche. It came with home made chips; it was about $15. It is pricey for the food, but it is in a touristy area of a big city. Service was fair. The host was friendly and helpful, but the waiter was not very helpful, distracted by other things and we waited a very long time for food when the place was not busy. Wouldn’t recommend based on food quality for price.

It was a horrible experience, the food was okay at best, the chef audibly said as we walked by, “I don’t know what I’m doing...” - to the manager; after we waited 45 minutes for two dishes to come out after the first set of dishes was late. It was comical how much a horrendous brunch service they were having. The patio is beautiful though.

Overall, we had a horrible experience. They forgot to cook all the meals ordered and when that was realized, they did nothing to hurry up the process. My friends had to take their orders to go after sitting there 1 1/2 hrs. The place wasn’t busy at all, they just didn’t care. Drinks were ordered on multiple occasions with half an order arriving while the other half had to ordered again. A second round of drinks was ordered and they straight up just never came. Don’t waste your time or your money, go somewhere else.

Hoppy’s Railyard Kitchen in Old Town is a wonderful place to grab brunch & drinks. The ambiance is modern, with an open kitchen and giant bar inside the one hundred year old building. There is lot of seating both inside and outside (front patio and a giant beer garden out back) of the restaurant. They are kid friendly and have a lot of choices on the kid’s menus. The service is excellent, from the hostesses to the server, chef and cooks. We will definitely return here next time we are in OldTown Sacramento, especially since it’s around the corner from the train museum.

It was nice. We were able to get a LARGE party into a nice restaurant in Old Sac on short. Can’t beat that. Food was good, service was good and it was a nice place that wasn’t so loud that we couldn’t talk. Everybody was happy with our choice to go there.
