The Loading Chute is a local steakhouse in the historic small town of Creston, CA. I have dined there for dinner on a few occasions and have enjoyed the meal, so decided to try it for breakfast with a couple of friends, this past weekend. We arrived around 11:30 on Sunday morning and were seated, after a short wait. We... More

I first had lunch at the Loading Chute in 2012 and thought it was at the edge of civilization. It is. There is nothing but hills and ranches east of Creston for about 80 miles. But now I live on a ranch in Creston 6 miles down the road from the Loading Chute. They serve excellent American food, steak, seafood,... More

Creston is a small community on eastern edge of wine tasting area. This is a clean attractive place with good service. Burgers and salads were primarily what's on the menu for lunch. We had a blue cheese burger and sweet potato fries. No complaints.

The food was why we brought our friends here. The ribeye was so big, my wife and I shared a meal. Our friends opted... More

Food was fine. Definitely has local flavor and nice patio to enjoy. Lots of space for groups. Was nice to only travel 2 miles to eat one evenings.

Fantastic steaks and cold crisp salads, is there anything better? Just the best and the loading chute is the place to go. This is definitely going on my list to visit again, and very soon

we visit this rustic restaurant with a decidedly western theme both for Lunch and dinner. The presentation is simple and the food is delicious, The burgers and sandwiches at lunch are delectable and the dinners, especially the baseball cut top sirloin is incredible. A decidedly honest establishment without any of the pretentious foofaraw in so prevalent today. Awesome food and... More

We have dined here a number of times in the past and have always enjoyed the experience. It has been several years since we last visited and we were pleased that nothing has changed significantly. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere; service was excellent and attentive and many menu choices. We opted for the prime rib and were delighted we did... More
