(UPDATED 10/16/2021) Description and review of Riverside Clubhouse, a bar and restaurant located in the Land Park neighborhood of Sacramento. NEW: See update below.
Friends and I met at the Riverside Clubhouse for breakfast on a recent Sunday morning. The restaurant is on Riverside Blvd. across the street from the Old City Cemetery. The Riverside Clubhouse is a long-time favorite of my friends, but this was my first visit.

We had reservations for 9:00 a.m. – right when the restaurant opens on the weekend. The plan was to beat the crowd. Upon entering we were greeted and immediately seated.
A Bit About Riverside Clubhouse
The Riverside Clubhouse has a large figure of a fiberglass bull/steer over its entrance. I seem to recall hearing that the bull/steer is a leftover from long ago when the building housed a steakhouse. Correct me if I am wrong. If you can add additional details – please do! NEW: See UPDATE below.
There is a good-sized parking lot along the side and in back of the building. I am told, however, that the bar/restaurant can get very busy during peak hours. Once the parking lot fills finding street parking can be difficult due to neighborhood parking restrictions.
Bar and Restaurant
The Riverside Clubhouse has a good-sized bar. There are dining tables in the bar area, as well as a room adjacent to the outdoor patio with glass garage-type doors. One of the doors was open between the two spaces while we were there. The back wall of the patio has a large cascading water feature that brings to mind a waterfall. Another interesting feature of the patio is a stacked triple-layer fireplace.
Riverside Clubhouse Menu & Review
To start, two of us ordered a mimosa ($6). I also ordered a decaf coffee ($3), which turned out to be the only disappointment of the day.
The Riverside Clubhouse menu had a number of appealing offerings for breakfast, so I went back and forth before I made up my mind.
The Breakfast Sandwich (fried eggs, cheddar cheese, sliced ham on grilled sourdough with country potatoes) ($12) appealed to my friends. One friend asked for bacon instead of ham, while the other requested fruit as opposed to country potatoes. Our young server was very accommodating.
Both friends enjoyed their Breakfast Sandwich. One made mention of the generous portion of ham and cheese on his.
I opted for the Chicken Fried Steak with Eggs (chicken fried steak with sausage gravy, two eggs any style and country fried potatoes ($14). The chicken fried steak was tender and the sausage gravy was excellent. I had ordered scrambled eggs (dry), and my eggs were just as I like them.
To Sum Up
Breakfast at the Riverside Clubhouse was an enjoyable experience. I look forward to returning to check out their lunch/dinner menu and/or Happy Hour.
(10/16/2021) A reader has shared that “back in the day” they enjoyed dining at the Hereford House steakhouse with friends! Did you patronize the Hereford House (now the Riverside Clubhouse)?
