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

We visit relatives in Sturgis once a year. We had been searching for a go to restaurant for many years. Since we have found the Colonial House we are searching no more. We have visited this restaurant over 60 times in the last 10 years. Excellent service and the food is great! There are so many items on the menu... More

On our recent trip to the Black Hills area we stopped in for breakfast. Having been here before on a previous trip we were happy to be back. As usual the service was fast and friendly. The food was very good. I had the Southern Belle and Hubby had the Outlaw omelette. On another visit we brought friends with us... More

While it is obvious that this is a place that the locals go it just didn't thrill us. The food was fine, the service was fair, and the restaurant needs updating. Nothing was outstanding or memorable.

We spent 9 days on the road from Texas to South Dakota. The Steak & Bacon Pasta Alfredo at the Colonial House Restaurant in Rapid City was the best meal I had on the entire trip. We need one of these restaurants in Texas.

You could see it is a good place, parking was full on a saturday... More

OMG, best liver and onions since my Mom use to make this for me/us. She passed in 2006, so was amazing to fine a place that cooked it exactly like she did. My daughter said, Mom I should have taken your picture for your first couple bites....you could tell by your look...it was delicious.... Everyone else's meals were also exceptional.... More

Ate breakfast here one day and it was awesome, yummy food with friendly service. We eyed the pastries and pies on our way out so later in our trip we got several slices of various pies to go after dinner elsewhere and they were amazing! Can't comment on lunch/dinner except that the menu looked promising.
