The Sturgeon is the best bar/restaurant on the Sacramento river. Very good menu and a special every day. The drinks are superb. Come in and get to know the staff. There is also entertainment on the Pontoon.

The gangway to this floating restaurant gives a clue of what awaits you in this old barge on barrels eatery. This very authentic Sacramento fish house is right on the water with river level views to match.

I came for lunch with a colleague because I was craving seafood and wanted to watch the action on the river during this flood season. The service was pretty meh, it took 10 minutes to get a water and iced tea after ordering. Someone else took our food order. The bread I requested didn't come until after the meal was... More

Horrible customer service. Was so ready for a nice seafood meal. Took forever to place an order for appetizer, expecting to place for entree soon. Watched server flit around, thinking i was on the schedule. Threw some cash on the table and walked out.
