The best Sacramento live music venue and restaurant on the river!

Welcome to Swabbies, the premier destination restaurant and bar on the beautiful Sacramento River. Let the waters of the Sacramento River wash your worries away as you relax in the shade of 60-foot trees – one of our 19 beers on tap in one hand and a famous Swabbies taco in the other. Seasonal in nature, yet, open year round. Swabbies is a true Sacramento “best of” for daytime live music, birthday parties, graduation parties, fund raisers, company parties, retirement parties, outdoor dining, unique outdoor weddings, receptions, and entertaining out of town guests. Our restaurant may be in Sacramento, but our hearts and minds – not to mention our stomachs – are in Cabo San Lucas and Honolulu. We bring beach-front ambiance to our riverside restaurant. With authentic marina food, drink and plenty of tropical attitude.

Swabbies most famous taco is our Corona beer battered fish taco. Meat lovers also enjoy our legendary chicken and beef tacos. Fresh fish tacos are a favorite during the summer season. Stuffed with a fresh fish catch of the day, fish is flown in several times a week (seasonal). Our famous fish, shrimp and prawn tacos are so addictive they ought to come with a warning label. What makes our tacos special is the cooking process. Out tacos can’t be compared to the south of the border style or Tex-Mex. They would be best described as Mexican-Italian fusion, a combination even the toughest critics appreciate and they can only be found one place in the world. The rest of our menu contains all the delicious American home-style fare one would expect from our owner and executive chef, 20 year restaurant veteran, Chef Michelle ‘Mikk’ Barabino.

Swabbies is the perfect destination and a “thing to do in Sacramento” for a day-trips along Garden Highway and Sacramento River. International travelers making the journey from Lake Tahoe to Napa Valley or San Francisco are welcome to pit stop in for our famous tacos, a few drinks, and a true dose of good old fashioned Americana. As the closest restaurant to the Sacramento International Airport minutes from the I-5, the wise and informed often come by before, after, or between flights, and airport employees are always welcome for weekend breakfasts, lunch and dinner. Our guest docks in the attached marina are free for boaters who want a place to stop in for food and fun. By boat, bike, car, or plane Swabbies is never far away conveniently located next to the Elkhorn Boat Launch under the I-5 Bridge, also just minutes away from Teal Bend golf course.

Swabbies is also a premier outdoor live music venue, boasting live music late spring, all summer, and early fall. If you’ve never sat next to the river, in a large shaded yard, and listened to live music then you’ve never been to Swabbies. Bands and locals agree, Swabbies is one of the best live music restaurant entertainment venues anywhere. Live music with dinner, on the river, performances start in late afternoons and end around dusk complete event and band details are on Swabbies calendar.

So if you are looking for something unique, new, and fun to do in or around the Sacramento region: Look no further! No other restaurant, bar, or music venue in Sacramento has the ambiance, the great food, the live music, and the fun of Swabbies.
