The bakery at Colonial House is outstanding. We are part of a breakfast group who have met together weekly for over 20 years. Colonial house is our choice 50% of the time. There is a Lighter side menu, over 55, and heavy breakfast options. My personal favorite is the Hippy Spin, an omelet with spinach, sprouts, and cheese. The pastries... More

You can always count on the Colonial House for consistent quality and good service. Great option for breakfast, but get there early if you want one of their famous caramel rolls. Try their homemade soups and daily specials. They also offer a small beer and wine list as well as a full bar. You can take home cookies and pastries... More

Colonial House is open all day starting with breakfast featuring the best caramel rolls ever! Their menu is filled with a wide variety of choices and everything that I have eaten over the years is delicious. If you want good, quality food at a fair price, eat here.

The Colonial House has been in Rapid City for a number of years, and I have been a patron for at least ten of those years. The food has been consistently good and unlike many chain restaurants always tastes as if it were "real" food and not a warmed-up version. The breakfasts are especially tasty and unique with the standards... More

I live in Rapid City and this is one of my regular restaurants. Not cheap, but reasonably priced. They have a good selection and even try some ambitious things. I note one of the reviews thought this was a very loud restaurant. I don't like loud places, but frankly I've never noticed that problem. They do some excellent pasta dishes... More

This restaurant is family owned, and is a great place to eat. The food is really good, and it is all made by great chefs. They are moving down the street to a bigger place, and will be able to hold more customers.

My wife & I had breakfast here on the way to Mt Rushmore. Restaurant was busy, but not crowded. While server was very attentive to other tables, we had to flag her down for coffee refills. The food was quite good and we were served quickly.

Had a really great breakfast at Colonial House restaurant while we stayed at the Best Western Town & Country Inn. Both the service and the food were great with a large menu selection.

Loved our meal! Came very quickly and our server was great. The only downside side is the setting. Everything is so close together that when the restaurant is full you can't hear a thing. My husband and I had to practically yell to talk to each other...

i love an American breakfast and this was one of the best, we were staying close by and noticed that the car park was always busy and when we tasted the food you could see why. Well cooked, a vast choice, good service and good value, be sure to use it if in Rapid City
