Delta Bar & Grill may be the area’s best-kept river dining secret. Located in Old Sacramento inside the Delta King riverboat, it offers a far more casual vibe than the Delta King’s swanky downstairs restaurant, the Pilothouse. Feel free to wear shorts and bring chatty friends to this lofty second floor eatery, which looks out directly onto the lazily flowing Sacramento river and offers both comfortable (indoor) booth dining and outdoor seating. When you visit, make sure to ask for the bar and grill’s fabulous blueberry and peach lemonade—a vivacious and beautiful cocktail that’s perfect for our sweltering Sacramento summer. The sweet refresher features a raft of crushed fresh blueberries at the bottom of the glass, fruity peach puree and a jaunty orange wedge garnish. Hungry? Try the kitchen’s first rate chicken sandwich (enlivened with pear slices and bacon) or the spicy, satisfying seafood cioppino.
