Ok I just landed from Europe but still I had better Western Country American food. Not completely inedible but very close to it. Concentrate on the many tv screens to forget your food. I will try to avoid it next time. Sorry.

Brought my husband while camping in the Black Hills and we had to come into Rapid City for groceries. New location isn't as homey as the old place, but the food remains fantastic!! Service is good and the prices are reasonable.

Stumbled across Colonial House while I was in town for business. Large menu, generous portions and kind, caring service. The homemade bread was fantastic!

Decor was simple. Coffee was hot. Food was good. Service was good. Located right at the edge of Rapid City so it's a great stop for a quick meal before you head up to Mount Rushmore.

Large breakfast menu, very nice staff. Food came out very fast. Pancakes are big and fluffy. French Toast was very good. Wish we could have had dessert but we were to full. Good prices and good breakfast
