Made with local produce and handmade ingredients this place is one of a kind. It has gluten free options and unique. Definitely would recommend it and is a local favorite.

All kinds of fancy organic stuff on the menu, but it was served luke-warm to cold. There is nothing I dislike more than cold food that should be hot, even if it's supposed to be good for you. We probably won't go back.

I have eaten several lunches and dinners at Real Food and have always had excellent meals. Since I live in the area, I really appreciate the fact that they use local products as much as possible including wines. Meals are always creative and very tasty. Service is also very good.

they really need more research into what they are trying to be. Real food for me should be made without processed ingredients.

As a local, this is one of my favorite restaurants because the dishes are prepared with fresh ingredients (often locally sourced when in season). The service is also friendly. I also appreciate the patio for dinning when the weather is good. The atmosphere matches the menu - "down-home" cooking.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Real Food. It was recommended by the motel we stayed overnight at, it was a great place to eat with reasonable prices. The borscht was excellent, the ribs were tender & tasty and dessert was divine! Wish I was closer to Creston more often, it would be a regular stop!

Thank Nadine G
