Went for dinner. Both my wife and myself would come back. Very attentive staff. Had the pasta with chicken and it was the best.

Best Carmel rolls!!!! Get there early before they run out. I've eaten here several times and it's delicious every single time. Everything tastes very fresh. Service is awesome.

We went for dinner and the food was pretty basic. However, the desserts are off the charts great. Save up your calories before you visit.

I highly recommend the Colonial House Restaurant for Breakfast. We spent the night in Rapid City and then stopped here prior to going to see Mount Rushmore. The food was excellent. I had an omelet with thin crispy potatoes- so good, and toast. My boyfriend had pancakes, eggs, coffee, and a large danish. The service was great, our waiter was... More

I read a review about this place. Then when we got in town I asked the front desk clerk, she said it was good. When we went I wasn't sure, just looked like a local diner. Breakfast was AWESOME, prices amazing, staff SUPER friendly and nice, and oh by the way - THE best - hands down, caramel roll I... More

We were staying at Big Sky Lodge and wanted a close place to eat. Check Trip Advisor and wanted a place close by. We found this place. A good move. The service was very good, the food was very good and the price was ok. My wife had the chicken pot pie. Nothing out of the box here. All fresh.... More

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
