Perfect place for adults and young ones

The little one's enjoyed the pool table while the adults enjoyed the best Bloody Mary ! Worth a visit and right next to the rail road museum!

Was lucky that The RC Saloon was open late. What a fun experience. Was there alone but no one seemed to care. Service was friendly, food was cheap and cheery, and the ambiance was loaded with atmosphere.

This beautiful bar is full of great art (although risque) and reminds visitors of what it was like back in the gold rush days. Sarsparilla is 25 cents. Bloody Mary's are said to be the best in the whole city. Even if you don't have a drink, stop and walk through.

Best blood marys but the place is kind of a weird rustic. Would go back for the bloody mary alone. But ok

They have a great space to just hang out and chat over some peanuts and a good drink. The beer on draft is guaranteed to have atleast one good beer. The front will have a narrow pathway for seating while the back has a wider space. It is a great place to visit.

We loved this place. We went in for drinks and ended up having a sandwich and coming back for karaoke later. Great Bloody Mary's as well. Take a picture out front with saloon Sam

Great local bands, fun customers but the bar service was terrible. The bartenders catered to people that appeared to be their regular customers and nobody else could get service.

It was interesting to stop in here, as we were walking through Old Sacramento. You could feel the underlying history, and get an idea of what it was like during the frontier days and the gold rush. Great atmosphere and photo-op!! It's touristy - but fun all the same!
