"The place has great, but untapped, potential . It needs work, even if just basic upkeep and maintenance. They are understaffed. The wait was unacceptable even though there was a large party in another room. Upon request, the manager grudgingly comped desert to help compensate for the extremely long wait, and became disgruntled. Perhaps another day & time would be different."

"This is only a place to take out-of-town relatives. You go there for the "experience", not for the food. The food isn't bad, it's just very dull. The service is very good, however. Been there a couple times; both times with the out-of-towners. Eat there, see the train museum, get out. Do NOT wander around that hellish tourist trap known as "Old Town"."

"I made reservations for a Saturday night but it didn't seem like I even needed it. Place was empty downstairs. But they did have live music playing upstairs so I think there were more people there.
Food was absolutely amazing and I had the best pork chops of my life!!"

"Nothing beats dinner by the river. The Delta King has fabulous ambiance in historic Old Town Sacramento. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to the promise of the setting. I ordered the fish special and the fish was mushy. My husband had a steak that was good, but certainly not great. The staff was friendly and attentive."

"We had our 10th Anniversary dinner and it was wonderful.
I ordered the Sea Bass - it was cooked to perfection, although I'm glad I asked for the olive garnish on the side.
Would definitely eat there again

"The host seemed completely overwhelmed--snapping at other staff and a bit grumpy with customers. The waitstaff was nice, but also seemed a bit harried. The food was mediocre and overpriced. The decor is tired. We were all disappointed. That will be my last time dining at the Pilot House."

"It was a really nice dinner. Bread was EXCELLENT! Service was good–although our waiter stopped by every three minutes. Awkward. But alright.
Being a vegetarian and not wanting a non-alcoholic beverage there weren't very many options. AKA for food, the pasta (minus the meat); and the drinks, coke, diet coke, lemonade, and water. (If you drink alcohol, don't worry. You'll find a binder full of different wines waiting for you to indulge your tastebuds with and a menu full of other alcoholic drink options)."

"We stayed the night for my wife's birthday. We had the dinner special that is available to hotel guests. I had the cider bribed pork chops and my wife had the salmon. Both were outstanding and our waiter was just the right amount of attentiveness. We split a bottle of very nice Pinot noir and probably were there for 2 hours. The view was perfect of the Sacramento River."

"The food was just eatable, not really good. Presentation looked nice, but for the price I expected better quality food. We went to the Firehouse earlier in the week, and that was an experience. The Delta King was just a bar and restaurant on a ship, that is pretty much it. There were more people in the bar than in the restaurant. I would recommend the Delta King for people wanting to hit the bar, but not eat."

"I took my 87 year old Grandmother here. She took a ride on the Delta King 78 years ago, when she was only 9. She suffers from neuropathy which is a numbing of her hands and feet, so walking even the short distance to the boat was a challenge for her. She also has memory loss but as soon as we set foot into the dining room she started remembering things from her ride so many years ago. Every time one of the extremely accommodating servers came to check on us she would tell them about her trip to San Francisco with her Aunt. She remembered the dress she wore and what she ordered to eat, the corned beef and cabbage. She was excited and alert, she was her old self again. Thank you so much Delta King staff for one of the most special moments of my life with my Nanny. The impeccable service you provided for us is very appreciated and we will be back soon. Thank you so much.

"My wife and I recently had dinner at the Pilothouse Restaurant aboard the Delta King in Old Sacramento. It was our one year anniversary, and we wanted to dine aboard the ship where we got married. Unfortunately, the service was less than desirable. The food was basic; however, we paid fine dining prices. To add insult, my steak was over cooked (asked for rare, got ‘VERY’ well done). A couple got up and left because they sat for 20 minutes without a server. They didn’t even get to order drinks. We got drinks at the bar prior to checking in, so we didn't notice the neglect right away. Another couple had their salads taken back to the kitchen. Our server was inattentive and indifferent to our food quality. Over all, our dining experience was horrible. Nevertheless, I am lucky to have such a wonderful wife who salvaged the night with a sunset selfie with the paddle wheel and Tower Bridge behind us, aboard the ship that we got married on."

"We went there to celebrate our anniversary . It had been while since we have eaten there and I expected that it would be crowded but it wasn't it. Also I think that the weather played a part in how busy it would be.
We had crab cakes and it was good but we only got 2.
We both ended up having the risotta . I had the one off the menu and my husband had the special. Mine was a bit spicy but it was still good. We got a the flour less cake and that was yummy. It came out with a candle on it. Service was good and they kept the drinks coming when needed. Overall a great place to dine.
