Our party of six went for a road trip and lunch on the river. Four of the six of us had fond memories of the place so we were excited to visit our old haunt. We were disappointed. The food was mediocre: Fish and pork...More

I work at the airport, so this place is very convenient to go to lunch. There is some indoor seating, but the place to be is outside under the umbrella of trees. The outdoor area is right on the river, in fact, you can dock...More

We went here because our friends raved about the the tacos. They were ok, but nothing to write home about, service was not good. We sat outside with a view of the river, that was nice.

We visited on a fall afternoon for live music, a late lunch and some adult beverages. Our waitress was excellent, the food was better than expected and the band was great. I really enjoyed the pulled pork!

Visited on a Monday or Tuesday so it wasn't very busy. Service was good but it was our only visit so we don't have anything to compare. There were 3 of us and we all had the burger special. Burgers and fries were very tasty...More

My family stopped here after arriving at Sacramento airport for a quick lunch. There is mainly outside seating and was not very crowded. We were greeted with friendly service and we all had their "famous fish tacos". The tacos were good but I wouldn't say...More
