This is some of the best food I've tasted if you're looking for down-home quality cooking! The staff is superb. They have some of the freshest food available and offer a wide variety of entrees. You can't go wrong here!

We go to breakfast at the colonial house approximately once every weekend and it's always amazing. I've never had bad food or service. The pastries are delicious and we tend to have breakfast and order pastries to go for the next day. The Log Cabin is my favorite thing on the menu. Terry is usually our server and she is... More

After eating out for well over a week it was great to have such a great meal. The steak was perfect, melted in your moth no knife needed! If you happen to be there on a Friday the Pear Flambe is a must(feeds 2), my husband had the Snickers Ice-cream he said it was the best he has had. We... More

Consistently good food! I had wings. Hubby had prime rib. Although the portions are a bit smaller than they have been in the past, it was still yummy!

We ordered: a hummus platter, buffalo burger, a cheeseburger, and chicken linguine. We also ordered the chocolate peanut butter bar for dessert. The buffalo burger is the best we've ever had and was cooked perfectly to order. The French fries were perfection too-and we are picky about fries. CH's home made peanut butter bar was utterly, indescribably scrumptious. The pasta... More

We stopped for a Sunday noon and I had an outstanding wrap. My wife had the carmel French toast which was like nothing she had before. I had to finish it for her. The menu prices we average for good food and it was good. Also Moriah did an outstanding job recommending the items. Also they have a great green... More

TripAdvisor reviewers rate Colonial House eighth of 200 restaurants in Rapid City for good reason: home-style meals at reasonable prices. On the way to Mount Rushmore, we ate enough for two meals. The “Pancake Sandwich” ($9.99) has three hotcakes, two bacon strips, and two eggs on top, but you can request the combo separated, as I did. I prefer syrup... More
