Went for breakfast. Had excellent service and the food can't be beat for the price. Excellent value for your dollar.

The Colonial House is one of my favorite restaurants for a fast, delicious meal. I have never eaten anything that I didn't like there. Perfect for anyone looking for something hearty to eat. The atmosphere is fun and the restaurant is clean. It's not the place for a romantic dinner, but great for families.

Every day they have a different soup. . My favorite soup is the cheesy mexicali. I get a calendar every month and go there for that soup. They have the best service and nicest people there. . They remember all their guests and are grateful. . There are not many restaurants these days that actually show gratitude to their customers... More

We both had omelettes, portions are HUGE, food is excellent. White cheddar and mushroom omelette has great flavor and plenty of cheese. Caramel rolls gets a lot of press but we were underwhelmed--big hunk of bread with caramel on top. Don't bother.

Ate supper here as was recommended by owner of motel “as a local favorite place to eat”. Definitely was not what was expected on entry to the restaurant. But happily surprised!

This place was ok...I guess. Its a place to eat. All staff seemed bored and unhappy. Try a smile! My boyfriends meal looked limp. He ordered gravy for his fries and it tasted completely odd...too much flour. Mine was salad which I'd been craving. I wouldn't go again but it wasn't terrible.

CH R&B- The Colonial House has been a long time family owned favorite among Rapid City and area locals. The menu has many choices for breakfast, lunch, or dinner with creative spins on burgers, pasta dishes, and salads. The "In-the-godda-da-vita" plate is a nice vegetarian choice. Dinner is served with a mini loaf of bread on the table, one of... More

colonial house is one of my fave places in rapid. they're locally owned, a local tradition and their food is quite good. breakfast is often the french toasty--a couple of pieces of french toast with chokecherry syrup. YUMMMMM.
