Better than 'family' chains like Perkins. Good prices and good coffee, but food is average. Need to learn not to press down on hamburger patties during frying, makes dry and tasteless burgers.

We have never been disappointed here! Great food! Always a crowd and a good menu selection. Separate menu for each meal.

This restaurant is something special. Not very many places now days have real home made food. I don't even want to share the secret of how good their food is, due to the chance of being out of what I want next time I go in! Always good, fresh and the bakery items are to die for.

The Colonial House is one my favorite restaurants in Rapid City. They consistently have great food and are very well priced. They serve a great breakfast, their caramel rolls are to die for, and their lunches are great values too. Check out their chicken noodle soup. It is homemade, as are all of their desserts. You can't go wrong.

This restaurant can handle a large group of people (10-21) easily, with fast, courteous service. Their best choices are their beef and salads, and their homemade pastries and deserts are excellent. An overall good value for the money and time spent. They will soon be expanding into an new building, nearby. It should be a great addition to their already... More

They have a great atmosphere and even a better staff. The feeling of almost being "home" makes the breakfast that much better! Carmel rolls all the way. Great food, great people!

The decor was what you expect from the name which was nice. The food was also great. It was a bit pricey but what place isn't these days.

Great place to eat. A real change from the cookie cutter chain restaurants that are so common in Rapid City. Does get crowded but help is on the way. Word is that they are moving 2 doors to the south of the present location. They have outgrown the present facility and sometimes the service shows it. They have the best... More
